A light reconnaissance tank of the Vietnam Era

During World War II there was an arms race to develop new and better tanks. America had less advanced tanks but we could build more than anyone else. After the war, the U.S. Army decided it needed a more powerful light tank and designed the M-41. It was a tough, reliable and fast vehicle that enhanced its 76mm gun with an advanced range finder. The M-41 was deployed to Vietnam, serving with the American and South Vietnamese armies. This kit features opening hatches, one piece tracks and five army figures.
