Number 35 was simply called 'Tank' although many price guides call it an armoured car. This one was painted green all over with additional black trim to the guns and engine grille, it was designed to tow the other military trailers so had a tow hook only. Four commercial vehicles were to be released numbered between 40 and 43 but as far as I know were never issued.
