Unless we are talking about Japan, there was NO CIVILIZATION besides the Western European one that actually had a frontline fighting nobility. From the middle ages to the modern ages, european nobility aways gave their blood, while accused by Hollywood of sraying in the back sending the men to die... liars.

Excellent vehicle for frightening wogs.

Something my uncle once said about these in post-Great War Egypt: the turret had a tendency to shear off if too tight a turn was made. Is this true?

Tank Chats #10 Crossley Chevrolet Inside the Rolls Royce Armoured 1 day ago   05:06

Share
In the tenth Tank Chat, Tank Museum historian David Fletcher MBE discusses the Crossley Chevrolet Armoured Car.

Armoured cars had proved so successful in India during the First World War, that shortly after its end the Indian Government ordered 16 Rolls-Royce cars. However, these proved so expensive that subsequent orders were placed with Crossley Motors in Manchester who made a tough but cheap 50hp IAG1 chassis. Substantial numbers of these cars were supplied between 1923 and 1925.

The car shown in this film was presented to The Tank Museum by the Government of Pakistan in 1951.
