Miniart 1:35 - AEC Mk. III Armoured Car - Plastic Model Kit #35159

AEC Armoured Car was developed by AEC (Associated Equipment Company) as a private venture with an aim to obtain an order from the Army. When the vehicle was shown to officials at the Horse Guards Parade in London in 1941, it made an impression on Winston Churchill and it was decided to put the AEC Car into production. A total of 629 vehicles were produced until 1944, which included three variants - Mk. I, Mk. II and Mk. III.

No other WWII armoured car was armed and armoured as heavily as the AEC Armoured Car. The Mk. III version was equipped with a ROQF 75 mm (2.95 in) main gun, and its frontal armor was 65 mm thick. The vehicle's protection was superior to any other British armoured car at the time.

Most Mk. 3's were used in Western Europe, Northern France and the Low Countries. The AEC Armoured Car remained in service until 1958.
