This chassis was the major weakness of the FAI. The FAI-M was built on the chassis of the GAZ-M1 car with 60 l fuel tank.The FAI and BA-20 are often mistaken for each other. The main recognition feature of the FAI is the two dome-shaped armored covers over the driver and co-drivers stations. The BA-20 had a flat armored roof in this area instead.
