After good experiences with them in the broad-gauge armored trains, the standard BP 42 was also equipped with two tank-carrier cars with removable Prage 38(t) tanks. The tub-shaped cars plus a folding armored shield protected the running gear. To remove the tank the pusher car ahead had to be uncoupled, an automatic Scharfenberg coupling was provided.
