The Daimler MK. II Armoured Car
This was one of the most successful British military designs of WW2. Conceived in parallel development to the Daimler “Dingo”Scout Car this heavier armoured car mounted a 2 pdr. Quick Firing cannon alongside a coaxial Besa 7.92 machine gun in the turret. Occasionally a Bren Gun might also be added atop the turret for anti- aircraft defense. After the success of our “Desert” version K&C decided to produce a second one for Northwest Europe. Produced in typical British olive drab this new version is in the markings of 44 Brigade belonging to XXX Corps which fought all the way from Normandy through France, into Holland and finally all the way up to Northern Germany by war’s end. Our K&C model comes with an NCO vehicle commander belonging to the famous 11TH Hussars.
