Vespa Piaggio Ape, was it ever used by the military (Italian Army or other) ?

Just found some nice 1/32 diecasts that would look good in a diorama...
Wondering if the military ever used those things, and of course if there are any photos?
Tried google images to no avail.
There are different types along the years, but mine is a general question.
Here's one of them.

We saw LOADS of these painted green on Comiso AS, Sicily. Try searching "GLCM" (ground launched cruise missile) or "Comiso". Or try "487 Tactical Missile Wing". There are some vets putting photos on-line that might help.http://www.dolloff.net/50Megs/Index.html

Vespa in IDFAF

I am (almost) positive that I've seen the same version (or very similar) of that Vespa on an Israeli airforce base taking pilots out to the flight line (when they weren't using bicycles). This time period would have been late 50s into the 70s. Would look great alongside a 32nd scale mirage III in an IAF diorama. I'll see if I can find a pic.

As an aside...

Arii has in its 1/32 range an interesting (and very cheap!) selection of nice japanese three-wheeler kits, that even if not military related are quite good for themselves or as "background" in dioramas.
