A new search for armored vehicles started in 1930. After looking at vehicles as the Carden-Loyd VI Light Tank and the French Autochienille de Cavallerie M 1928, economy forced the Army to build their own vehicles for evaluation. The chassis chosen was a Ford, and the "armor" was made of steel-plates which made it possible to alter the vehicle when required.
The truck was armed with a 20 mm machine canon and 2 machine guns.
Evaluation of this new vehicle started in October 1931 where it participated in a spring exercise. The vehicle did´nt perform that well, and by the end of the year the project was cancelled.
