Desert Rats Humber Armoured Car Troop (x3)


SKU: BFBBX34

In-Stock: 33

Price: $38.50AUD inc. GST


Humber Armoured Car Troop (BBX34) includes three resin Humber cars, one plastic Tank Commander sprue and one Unit card.

The Humber is one of the most successful British armoured car designs. While its real job is reconnaissance, its 15mm Besa machine-gun poses a serious danger to lightly armoured targets.

The Humber is fielded in North Africa by several cavalry units, including the 11th Hussars, one of the units that cut off the retreating Italian Tenth Army at Beda Fomm back in 1940.

Armoured cars play a similar role to the light cavalry regiments of old, roaming far ahead of the tanks, observing enemy dispositions and reporting their movements. In pursuits they lead the chase, harassing the retreating enemy and ambushing fleeing convoys. In retreats they are the rearguard, slowing the enemy advance and covering the withdrawal of the fighting forces.
