The Boy Motor Company produced a powerful light wheeled armored vehicle in 1938, but it did not have suitable facilities for mass production. In 1940, the design was passed on to the Humber Company, which used their own Kalia KT4 chassis to produce the Humber 1 armored vehicle. However, the design was later adjusted at the end of 1941 to make it more conducive to production. This modified model was named Humber II. This powerful and agile armored vehicle uses a 15mm Besa machine gun with a high rate of fire. The Humber II performed better on the battlefield than the German and Italian armored vehicles. This vehicle was put into service with the 11th Hussar Regiment at the end of 1941 until it was replaced by a newer Humber III or Daimler I armored vehicle. Its speed can reach 45 miles per hour, the cruising range is 200 miles, the armor thickness is 15 mm, and the power is provided by a 90 bhp 6-valve gasoline engine. Approximately 440 such armored vehicles were produced.
