Spanish Schneider-Brillié Armored Car, Model 1909. The first "Armored Car" in the world that was used in real war actions.

Schneider-Brillié Armored Car, Model 1909, of the Spanish Army.

It was the first armored car in the world  to be used operationally in actual combat missions (Morocco, January 20, 1912) (*). The crew consisted of 16 men and was armed with two Maxim machine guns and 10 Mauser rifles.

Note the use of colors (or tones contrasting monochrome) of camouflage in the vehicle, something unheard of at the time (winter 1910-1911), since the concept of disruptive forms would not be conceived until 1915, during the First World War.

At the Armored Car Schneider was assigned, in the Spanish Army, denomination: ARTILLERY No. 15.

(*) The second armored car in the world used in combat, was the Italian Fiat-Arsenale, manufactured in Turin in July 1912. Shortly thereafter would be sent to Libya, where he would participate in the last operations of the Italo-Turkish War.

Coche Blindado Schneider-Brillié, del Ejécito Español, Modelo 1909.

Fue el primer coche blindado del mundo que se utilizó operativamente en misiones reales de combate (Marruecos, 20 de enero de 1912) (*). La tripulación constaba de 16 hombres y el vehículo estaba armado con dos ametralladoras Maxim y 10 fusiles Mauser.

Obsérvese la utilización de colores (o tonos mono-cromo contrastados) de camuflaje en el vehículo, algo insólito en ese momento (invierno de 1910-1911), ya que el concepto disruptivo de las formas no sería concebido hasta 1915, durante la Primera Guerra Mundial.

Al Coche Blindado Schneider se le asignó, en el ejército español, la denominación: ARTILLERÍA Nº 15.

(*) El segundo coche blindado en el mundo, utilizado en acciones de combate, fue el Fiat-Arsenale italiano, realizado en Turín en julio de 1912. Unos meses después sería enviado a Libia, donde participaría en las últimas operaciones de la Guerra Italo-Turca.
