After the Fall of France in June 1940 victorious German forces commandeered a number of French vehicles for their own use, among them the 105hp engine AMD 4-wheel drive car, which packed a fair punch with its turreted 25mm gun and 7.5mm machine gun. Around 200 were pressed into German service as the P204(f), 43 of which were fitted with train wheels for use on the railways. Most were also given a large frame antenna and new radio, and packed off to the Eastern Front where they would provide protection for the crucial rail network from local partizans and the Red Army, and they did so until the end of the Second World War.
