The Steyr Kfz70 is Forged in Battle donated by Chris Kemp.   I have added a FoW Breda and some Peter Pig crew figures and put it into the Raggruppamento Sahariana motor pool.

I have been looking around for some suitable figures, should the soldiers wish to dismount and engage the enemy on foot.  So lightly equipped desert soldiers, mostly in short trousers with a jaunty array of irregular headgear.
