Product Description

Armadillos were improvised armoured self-propelled guns based on any available lorry chassis for airfield defence. The ‘armour’ consisted of wood and/or steel plates lined with gravel. The Mark I and II were armed with two Lewis Guns mounted in an open-topped ‘fort’, plonked onto a flatbed lorry that itself lacked even an armoured cab.

This box set contains:

  • A resin and metal Armadillo
  • A Stat card
  • Full colour waterslide decal sheet
  • Damage markers

An embrasure on each side allowed one Lewis Gun and one rifle to be fired into each side arc (the vehicle also contained a fifth gunner with another rifle who could fire over the top of the fort walls in any direction assuming he was feeling lucky or merely suicidal).

The Mk III incorporated a Coventry Ordnance Works, clip-fired 37mm aircraft cannon designed during World War I. It was located right behind the fighting compartment so the gunner could operate it while inside the fort. In 1942 some were equipped with plastic armour.

Cost: 44pts (inexperienced), 55pts (Regular)
Weapons: 1 LMG and 1 rifle firing into each side arc
Damage value: 7+ (armoured car).
Options: Convert to a Mk III by replacing the two rifles with a light, low-velocity, anti-tank gun firing into the rear arc for +25pts
Special Rules: Open-topped Slow
