One can never really have enough options (other than on foot!) to get your troops around, and Warlord Games has brought another cool option to Bolt Action for your Italian troops with the AS42, Sahariana.
The AS42 Sahariana was an Italian reconnaissance car developed during World War II. Utilising the AS41′s four-wheel steering the Sahariana excelled in desert operations, primarily in a reconnaissance role.
Able to carry five or six fully-equipped men, the Sahariana seldom carried its full complement and instead would go into action with three or four crew. It proved an effective and popular vehicle and went onto be converted into several variants including vehicles armed with 20mm Breda guns.
Following service in the Western Desert, the AS42 would see action on the Italian mainland and Sicily. A few Saharianas served on the Russian Front but many more would be taken into German service when the Italians surrendered to the Allies- all of which is very cool knowledge if you fancy the vehicle but aren’t playing Italians.
Will this armoured awesomeness be finding it’s way onto your tabletop?
