Engine no. 14TA 4106
Vespa registered in the Piaggio Historical Register
Certificate of Origin 37431/17

Among the various declinations and applications of the Vespa, this original TAP model (Trouppe Aero Parachutate) saw the light in the early 1950s.
Designed and built by Piaggio as a military vehicle for the parachute troops of the French army, it was equipped with 1 75 mm cannon of US origin and used by all the troops of the Atlantic Pact.
The equipment was completed by 6 ammunition, 2 fuel tanks and a small transport trolley.
Despite the weight of 115 kg, the TAP could boast a high handling that made it perfect as a light tactical vehicle, transforming the Vespa into a winning weapon on the war front.
The TAP had a reinforced structure and was parachutable in any area, while the 150 cc Piaggio engine guaranteed excellent reliability and a range of 200km.
Today this model represents a very rare collector's item.
The TAP was produced from 1956 to 1959 in only 600 copies in two camouflage colors: sand and green.
