Coventry Armoured Car

The Coventry armoured car was a British four wheel drive (4 × 4) armoured fighting vehicle developed at the end of the Second World War as a potential replacement for the lighter Humber and Daimler armoured cars.

This Coventry Armoured Car was on display at Bovington.

The Coventry was an advanced design and featured a similar layout to the more compact Daimler, but with a more conventional suspension and drive system. It included duplicate driving controls to allow rapid disengagement in combat.

Some Coventry Armoured Cars were sold to France and later saw action against the Viet Minh during Indochina War.
