In 1934, Laffly developed an armoured car in for use in the French Colonies or TOE (Théâtre d'Opération pour Exterior). The design was based on the Laffly S15 artillery tractor; armour plate up to 7mm thick was mounted on the body, covering the engine and driver compartment. The rear of the vehicle was made up of a truck bed which could be used to transport either men or equipment.

The top of the vehicle housed a spherical-shaped turret which mounted the vehicle's main armament. The armoured superstructure featured a number of hinged observation ports that provide the crew with a limited view of the battlefield and which,  also acted as ad-hoc pistol ports in case the vehicle and its crew got itself into a really sticky situation.

However, by 1942 the Laffly S15TOE's best days were behind it and it was replaced by the British Marmon Herrington armoured car.
