The Torino

6.9-ton Škoda-Fiat Torino, built on the Fiat 18BL truck chassis and armed by a pair of 7.92mm machine guns, was the first armored vehicle designed and produced in independent Czechoslovakia. 11 vehicles were issued to the Army in 1920.
Due to numerous mechanical failures, they service life was relatively short - most were retired by 1925, the last were scrapped in 1929.
