M1A2 Abrams Operation Iraqi Freedom
Item No: 35269


Length: 283mm. Image shows painted and assembled kit.

Smooth Operator
The M1 Abrams - a long-serving member of U.S. armed forces. This M1A2 version featured a 120mm smoothbore gun and improved armor from predecessors, plus the latest electronics: Intervehicular Information System (IVIS), Commander's Independent Thermal Viewer (CITV) turret, and more. The resulting highly efficient machine was first fielded in 1992, and took part in the Iraq War from 2003.

About the Model
This is a 1/35 scale plastic model assembly kit. Length: 283mm. M1A2 features such as CITV turret are captured with aplomb. This kit can also be assembled as an M1A1HA, the base vehicle from which the M1A2 was developed, and parts are included to recreate a Marines vehicle. A wealth of accessories includes depictions of Combat Identification Panels (CIP), Auxiliary Power Unit (APU) and more. Comes with a full body commander figure and loader torso. Features four Iraq War marking options and one for recreation of a vehicle in Kosovo.

Packaging


The distinctive angular hull design with modular armor is rendered realistically along with the L/44 120mm smoothbore gun.


Modelers can choose whether to assemble the kit as an M1A2, or as the pictured Marines version of the predecessor M1A1HA.


A wide range of accessories in the box ensures that your model has plenty of life and character once it has been finished.


Two figures are included: a full-body commander on the radio, and a torso loader figure surveying the scene at a 7.62mm machine gun.


This little 1/35 scale dog will be a useful ally in the creation of your diorama masterpieces!


This separately sold set of photo-etched parts (Item 35273) for basket mesh, engine grilles and more will add an extra level of detail!
