In late 1942, a German heavy tank with extra thick armor and a very powerful gun, showed itself in the North African front. It was long desired by German Soldiers who were fighting non-stopping against the allies.
Over 100,000 Bren Carriers were built, serving many units including field ambulances. The six pounder anti-aircraft gun was extremely effective against German tanks. This kit includes four crew figures.
The 25-pdr saw service throughout World War II with British and Commonwealth forces and it was generally thought to be one of the best field guns of the war. For transportation, the gun was attached to its limber and towed by the Morris Commercial C8 FAT (Quad). 32 rounds of ammunition were carried in the limbers.
This cleated-tracked landing vehicle was designed for the US Army initially, but then was also used by the British Army in NW Europe. Although usually associated with the Pacific theatre, towards the end of the war LVTs (Landing Vehicle Tracked) were employed in Europe as well. This box also contains the Willys Jeep.
