Russian BA-10 Armored Car

The BA-10 was an armored car developed in the Soviet Union in 1938 and produced till 1941. It was the most produced Soviet pre-1941 heavy armored car – 3311 were built in three versions. These versions were the BA-10, the BA-10M (improved version with new radio), and the BA-10ZhD (equipped for dual railway/road use). The basic BA-10 design was developed from the BA-3 and BA-6 heavy armored cars. It had an improved GAZ-AAA chassis and improved armor (up to 15mm at front and turret). It was intended that the BA-10 would be replaced in 1941 by the BA-11 with diesel engine and more sophisticated armor design, but the outbreak of war prevented BA-11 production. The BA-10 was in Red Army service till 1945. Significant numbers of captured BA-10s were used by Finland (at least 24), Germany and other Axis powers in Europé.

I finally got my BA-10 ready only a few day before my first test game with my new russian army.
Im going to have a test game this coming weekend against my buddy Peters Italians.

Im really looking forward to the test game and i will make a battle report of it :)
Hope you all like my BA-10

  1. Great painting! I love the BA series of vehicles.

  2. Nice and clean paintjob, well done!

  3. A great paint job for a great model, love this kind of armored car!

  4. Nice work, but, are you sure it is not a BA-6.
    I painted a BA-6 a few months ago and it is a dead ringer (apart from mine was packed without the steps)

    1. The BA-6 and the BA-10 looks the same but the BA-10 got only small improvments and was made from 1938-1941

  5. Great job there! Looking forward to my BA-10 joining the ranks of the Fins soon!

  6. Lovely job Andre! Looking forward to said batrep.

  7. Great looking model, no Russian force sould be without at least one of the BA range of vehicles.

  8. Very nice. I am tempted to get a BA6 for my Spanish Civil war armies. This has encouraged me to get one. (or 2) Thanks for showing it.
