It has more photos. That issue is out of print. But, some shops still have copies.

Note that these shops will not accept overseas dispatch. So, you must use an export agent.

https://otakurepublic.com/ seems to have a copy. But, it cannot be accessed from Japan. Search by yourself. The title is "日本の装甲自動車 1".

- It is same Austins in battle. When and where is it?
I cannot understand which photo you said. But, Austins were used in Siberia and China.

- Does anybody know a history of Austins in Japan army?

- it is a banner at one of Austins, how to translate this text, what does it meen?
Which photo you said?

- Some of austins has a camo- what is a colors been used?

It is the IJA camo scheme in early 1930s. It used 5 colors (green, brown, dark brown, dark green and yellow) with black border lines as shown below.

- How the name of this armored car with a austins body on a japan truck schassis?

It is ちよだ應型装甲車(Austin-Type Chiyoda Armored Car). It was rigged up armor plates removed from scrapped Austin Armored Car on the chassis of Chiyoda (TGE) truck. Three were built and sent to Kwantung Army in 1932.

- Is it any information about Manchukou's austin, armed with cannon in fwd plate.
No information. Ask its model maker.

-Is it any japan musseum or army archiw where I can get more information about Japans Austin!
JACAR has some documents. Search by " オースチン装甲自動車" .

They are IJA soldiers.

Yes

> Is it Invasion in Manchuria?

No, it was in Jinan incident in 1928. Jinan incident was the last battle of Austin and Austin did not see action after it.

The detailed shade of colors are unknown. So, no information.

> Meen that it was now austins in Japan army after 1932?

Yes

> Is it only one picture of this vehicles? Do You know another one?

Second one is different in turrets and wheels. It is unknown whether it was modified or newly built.

> Is it a Manchuocou's or Japan's one Sumida?

It is Manchukuo armored car.

Thanks Taki!
Thank for all Your ansver.
Two new pictures with Austins! You make my day! I like this with a rubber tires so much!
Is it any information what truck shassies been used for that modification? Look like Type 94 with dubbled rear wheels.

I had a information Chines army or Chines warlords had got same ex-Chehoslovakian(ex-ex-Russian) Austins at start of 1920th. Do You have information about that? Also I have information Russian donated some Austins to Mongolian. Did JIA met austins on a Chinas or Mongolians side during a battles ?

The chassis is unknown. But, if it was modified from one built in 1932, it was not Type 94 chassis, because Type 94 did not exist in 1932. The chassis of originals would be from Chiyoda 6-wheeled Type Q truck.

> I had a information Chines army or Chines warlords had got same ex-Chehoslovakian(ex-ex-Russian) Austins at start of 1920th. Do You have information about that?

I hear that Zhang Zuolin bought Austins. But, I don't know the details.

> Did JIA met austins on a Chinas or Mongolians side during a battles ?

No, IJA had never met them.
