PS. Done!
It looks that You've removed the drawing that was originally in the first of 3 posts, while other two are now both in the first post and in the other two.
At least to me the first picture in the first post seems to me as a black rectangle with message "The image you are requesting does not exist or is no longer available. imgur . com"

This 126p looks rather odd, especially the rear part (wheels look quite big too).

Hi, B. It is strange! In my office I saw the black rectangle, but here in my home, I was able to see the drawing of the spanish gun! In either way, I am putting another link for that gun. Cheers.

Citroën Kégresse vehicles

In the 1920's and 1930's Citroën produced half-track versions of their standard wheeled vehicles.

Frenchman Adolphe Kégresse, personal chauffeur to Tsar Nicolas II, designed a vehicle track system in Russia in the early 1900's. Rather than the heavy, expensive and complex segmented metal tracks still seen on tanks today, the Kégresse system used a reinforced canvas and rubber belt - effectively a giant rubber band. Returning to France after WWI, Kégresse joined Citroën, where the off-road and winter usefulness of his system was appreciated. Citroën produced vehicles for many desert and polar expeditions, where the extremely light footprint of the Kégresse system proved itself. Until Citroën went bankrupt in 1935 they produced alternate models of many of their "standard" cars and light trucks as half-tracks, with Kégresse continually upgrading his system as the model years progressed.
The biggest foreign customer was Poland, which also produced more than 400 Kégresse light trucks before the German invasion.

ACV India pattern Mk.II

With the inability of Britain to supply Commonwealth forces with armoured vehicles early in WWII, India started production of amoured cars based on imported chassis.

The initial Armoured Carrier, Wheeled, India pattern Mk.I was based on a Ford chassis with a front mounted engine. However this was dropped for the definitive model with a different Ford chassis with a rear mounted engine, abbreviated to ACV India pattern Mk.II (I can't find a definition, but I assume the "V" was changed out for Vehicle). Production was split between Indian Railways and Tata, with the Tata built machines being refered to as Tatanagars.
In service they could be fitted with either a bren machine gun, or a Boys anti-tank rifle. They were deployed with Indian troops throughout the Middle East and North Africa, and were delivered to Malaya and Singapore before the start of the Pacific War where they were also used by British, Australian and Dutch forces.
New Zealand also built vehicles, with the ponderous name of Armoured Carrier, Wheeled, India pattern Mk.II, New Zealand pattern - abbreviated to a more manageable ACV-IP 2 New Zealand pattern. The NZ vehicles were deployed during the Korean War as Local Pattern Observation Posts (LPOPs) artillery observation vehicles. They were withdrawn from service in 1956.
