That’s quite a mouthful… but then it’s also quite a set too. The K&C ‘105’ comes with 4 x USMC Gunners to serve and operate the gun.
The 105mm M10A1 Howitzer was an artillery piece that began as the standard U.S. field howitzer of WW2. It also saw extensive battlefield service in Korea and Vietnam with both the U.S. Army and the USMC as well as with other Allied nations’ armies.
Our USMC version has 4 x Marines serving the gun and will also have future extra ‘add-on’ sets to complete the gun in action.
American artillery played a vital role in the U.S. effort in South East Asia…. especially in defense of ‘firebases’ the length and breadth of South Vietnam. Among the most utilized artillery pieces that operated in the conflict was the venerable, WW2 era, 105mm Howitzer. Here is K&C’s second version, the first was the recently-released ‘ANZAC 105’ set.
