Revell (Ex Matchbox) M16 Halftrack. Complete with diorama base plate. New. RRP £7.49
The American M16 half-track was developed in 1942 as an anti-aircraft platform and by 1943 a total of 724 had been built. Used to protect tank and infantry units against enemy air attacks, this weapon had an overwhelming success. The four-barrelled AA gun comprised 0.50 calibre machine guns mounted on a Maxson turret.
Nicknamed the “Meat Chopper”, the M16 was famous for downing low-flying aircraft, making it extremely popular with soldiers. It was used by the United States Army, the British Commonwealth, and South Korea. A similar version of the M16, the M17, was based on the M5 Half-track and exported via Lend-Lease to the Soviet Union.
