39M Csaba

The Csaba armoured car started life as a design by former Hungarian engineerMichael Straussler. He designed a four-wheel-drive armoured car for the Britisharmy in 1933, and asked Hungarian company Manfred Weiss to produce the prototypefor him. This armoured car was the AC I. The Hungarian saw advantages applicableto their own uses in this vehicle, but due to the depression and tight financeswere unable to purchase it. In 1935 Straussler and Manfred Weiss continued todevelop the concept and produced the AC II. The new vehicle had both front andrear driving positions for easy extraction from difficult positions.

Manfred Weiss produced two prototypes; one went to the British army fortesting while the other remained at the factory. Under the guidance of theHungarian Military Technical Institute Manfred Weiss went about designing aturret.The final prototype was purchased by the army and underwent trialsalongside a number of foreign designs. After trials, the AC II was accepted in1939, designated the 39M Csaba and was intended for reconnaissance units. Theturret was armed with a 20mm 36M Solothurn anti-tank rifle and a 8mmmachine-gun. In 1939 the Ministry of Defence ordered 61 Csaba and then afurther 20 were ordered in 1940.12 40M Csaba command variants were ordered in1940 as well as command vehicles for company and battalion
commands. These vehicles had smaller turrets armed with a single 8mm machine-gunand carried a more
powerful radio with a large antenna array.
