Twenty of these vehicles also served the Russian Army beginning in 1915. The vehicle had a six-cylinder, 4.8 liter engine which developed 65 b.h.p. at 2200 r.pm.; the gear-box was three-speed epicyclical type and transmission was by worm drive to the rear axle. As an armoured car with about 8mm of armor, it weighed between four and five tons, the top speed was about 50 m.p.h. The crew consisted of three or four men and the armament was one Vickers-Maxim machine gun mounted in the turret, although a Lewis light machine-gun was usually also carried, stowed inside the car.

 

The Lanchester Armoured Car was manned by a crew of four and armed with a Vickers-Maxim machine gun mounted in the turret, although a Lewis light machine-gun was usually also carried, stowed inside the car. It had a top speed of 80 kmh and a range of 290 km. After 1915 the Lanchester Armoured Car was phased out and replaced by the Rolls-Royce Armoured Car (see left)

What people say...
Chip and All, Noticed this the other day at the FG site. Oh man! Really looking forward to this and can't wait 'till available for purchase. FG's released only some land vehicles as called for or a support for a few of the aircraft models, I was not sure if you wanted to delve into other areas. Hope this one goes well for you and will lead to others. i mainly enjoy the WWII models, but also the early flying machines. Maybe some early or odd wheeled vehicles, be they military, civilian or concepts. Good day! Joe Golden
