NotesThe M36 was a medium armoured car which originated from Sweden and was built by Landsverk as the L181. It was armed with a 37mm canon in a fully revolving turret and three machine guns. The Dutch purchased twelve of these vehicles from Landsverk in 1936 and these were issued to the 1st armoured car squadron along with a single command version of the M38.
