Was the AMD 35/178B (the one with the 47mm cannon) used by the FFL in Indo-China? I know it WS in general use but need confirmation or otherwise of use by the Legion. Any guidance or clarification very graciously welcomed.
Thanks

Here's a remotely related thread (in French) :

Panhard armored cars of the French Legion étrangère are mentionned in this article about the Japanese coup d'état in French Indochina in March 1945 :
