Tanks may be the stars of the battlefield, but the "soft" vehicles supporting the front lines play an equally important role. With the release of the 1/48 MM Steyr Type 1500A/01, Tamiya gives modellers another interesting subject to add to their WWII armor and aircraft dioramas.


About the Steyr Type 1500A/01


Prior to the start of WWII, the German army used a variety of vehicles in preparation for their mobile Blitzkrieg tactics. However, the "Schell" Program of 1940 called for a standardization of vehicles for more efficient production, and one of the vehicles chosen for use was the Austrian Steyr 1500A/01. With its air-cooled 3.5 liter V8 engine and 4WD, the vehicle proved to be rugged and reliable, and was produced as a light truck, soft top infantry carrier, and staff car. It's versatility made it a useful transport vehicle on all battle fronts.
