Laffly 50 Armored car ammo specification

Post by Kelvin » 18 Jan 2020 15:24

Hi, I am Looking for ammunition load of Laffly 50 armoured car :

I find in Website say that Laffly 50 armoured car had a 37mm gun with 72 AP and 92 HE and 1 x 7.5mm MG with 5500 bullets including 288 AP bullets but I think that figure is too high for that small vehicles, is it really filled with 164 x 37 Shells and 5500 small ammo ? Anyone had alternative figure for me ? Thank

Hello, I just find in other post in AHF About that vehicles.

It really had 92 HE and 72 AP and for MG, it had 3,840 x normal bullets, 1,440 x AP Bullets and 288 x Tracer bullets = 5,568 bullets.
