the naval mount is intended to use with 15CWT trucks ( mostly Morris and Bedford ) as used by the 1st Free French Brigade , at Bir Hakeim and till Tunisia





the 25mm on carrier was used by the Free French at Bir Hakeim and latter
( the german model on the Neucraft site is one of a model captured at Bir Hakeim )


Dans les situations critiques, quand on parle avec un calibre bien en pogne, personne ne conteste plus. Y'a des statistiques lŗ-dessus.

Thank you for the news. I look forward to in time to pick-up the SA mle 1934 25mm Anti-tank Gun to mount on a Sdkfz 250 for the DAK. The CitroŽn Traction Avant 11CV will be lovely for my HG in Sicily/Italy.
Best wishes,
Helen

Looks great Kevin
Will be picking up a  CitroŽn  and maybe another Ford GPA
Two questions
1.) Can I buy the driver separately?
2.) Are you considering making a Soviet driver - or do I need to use greenstuff? :)
and no my existing 28mm drivers do not fit I have tried them!

Hi Truscott Trotter,

You can buy the US driver separately. The item number is 5009.

At this stage we do not have a plan to do a Russian driver.

OK thanks Kevin - will go with the US and see if I can lean some modelling skills.
I reckon its file the straps, pouches and collar off and replace the head. Add som greenstuff shoulder boards and no one will know the difference!  o_o

Thank you for your replies.

I just found this photo of the SA34 25mm mounted on the Marmon-Herrington Armored Car Mk.II. Very tempting variant :)



Caption: A group of British prisoners at Marmon-Herrington armored cars (in the foreground - Marmon-Herrington Armored Car Mk.II, in the background - Marmon-Herrington Armored Car Mk.III) in North Africa. In the background of the photo - the German soldiers.

it's a commonwealth mount, basically anything was better than the BOYS ATR , so the turret was removed and a captured gun was fitted , mostly breda, but some 25mm captured in Lebanon too ...

in the Marmon Herrington Mk3 used by the Free French, the 25mm was mounted in the turret ...



1 on 3 are fitted with a 25mm gun

That Citroen is a cracker and looks like a better option to the 1/48 Tamiya one.
