An armored vehicle near General Rozanov’s residence, 1919. Few people know this car was manufactured in Vladivostok in 1919. It was also a left-hand drive car. The idea of using cars for military purposes appeared shortly after the first automobile was
manufactured. Thus, inventor Dvinitsky brought forward his plan to equip a car with rapid-fire weapons back in 1897 but he was denied. The first armored car was manufactured in France in 1905. It was powered with a gun and its armor width was 4.5 mm.
