Thanks, Susan, did not know that. Would that include the right to build the Bofors 37mm gun? W-F already built/assembled a fine line of Bofors guns...

The Dutch thought they needed around 100 armoured cars (De Jong) and as you say DAF would probalby have been able to build a dozen a year or so. Meanwhile the first Landsverks (M36) were becoming obsolete soon (they could have used the turrets for the DAFs as well), so more orders were needed.

Available were the White Scout cars at the time and the Dutch might have bought a batch of these, just like KNIL (44) would.
