Italian Bianchi and Lancia-Ansaldo 1Z Armored Cars aggregates to the Czechoslovak Army Corps. Italy, 1918.

Italian Armored Cars aggregates to the Czechoslovak Army Corps in Italy, 1918.

In the picture, an Bianchi "Pallanza" Armored Car of 1916 and an Lancia-Ansaldo 1Z Armored Car Model 1915, ceded by the Italians to the Czechs who were fighting in Italy against the Austro-Hungarian Army in 1918.

Note the Czech Coat or similar (?) painted on the sloped armor located below the bonnet of the Lancia 1Z.

Subsequently, on December 15, 1918, the Bianchi Armored Car would be changed by another Lancia-Ansaldo 1Z Armored Car.

The two Lancia 1Z Armored Cars were transferred to the territory of the new Czechoslovak state, along with the other vehicles (especially Fiat trucks) belonging to the Czechoslovak Army Corps in Italy.

These were the first two armored vehicles of the new Czechoslovak Army and were assigned the numbering No. 1 and No. 2 and license plates  NVII-751 and NVII-752 respectively. Both armored cars belonging to the first series or Model 1915.

The armored car No. 2 remained in the turret, in the new army, the colors of the first Czechoslovak flag (two parallel horizontal stripes, one white and one red). This flag was painted when he served in Italy in 1918.

Both armored cars kept the green with which they were originally painted during the Great War by the Italian Army.


Coches Blindados italianos agregados al Cuerpo de Ejército Checoslovaco en Italia en 1918.

En la imagen, un Coche Blindado Bianchi  "Pallanza" de 1916 y un Coche Blindado Lancia-Ansaldo 1Z  Modelo 1915, cedidos por los italianos a los checos que luchaban en Italia contra el ejército Austro-Húngaro en 1918. 

Obsérvese el Escudo Checo o similar (?) pintado en el blindaje inclinado situado a continuación del capó del motor del Lancia 1Z. 

Posteriormente, el 15 de diciembre de 1918, el Coche Blindado Bianchi sería cambiado por otro Coche Blindado Lancia-Ansaldo 1Z. 

Los dos Coches Blindados Lancia 1Z fueron trasladados al territorio del nuevo estado checoslovaco, junto con los otros vehículos (especialmente camiones Fiat) pertenecientes al Cuerpo de Ejército Checoslovaco en Italia.

Estos fueron los dos primeros vehículos blindados del nuevo Ejército Checoslovaco y se les asignó la numeración Nº 1 y Nº 2  y las matrículas NVII-751 y NVII-752  respectivamente. Ambos vehículos pertenecían a la primera serie o Modelo 1915.

El coche blindado Nº 2 conservó en la torreta, en el nuevo ejército, los colores de la primigenia bandera checoslovaca (dos franjas horizontales paralelas, una blanca y otra roja), bandera que le fue pintada cuando sirvió en Italia en 1918.  

Ambos coches blindados mantuvieron el color verde con el que fueron pintados originalmente durante la Gran Guerra por el ejército italiano.
