Our Modern vehicle range is continually being added to, and we've got a variety of excellent new releases for you here.

First up, we've got the last of the 'M' variants we previewed last year, starting with the Pershings.  Over 2000 M26's were produced in total, with only a very small number being the M45 version we've got here as well.  We've also had some spare tracks done as well, so you can now add some useful armour plating to your vehicles.

Elsewhere we've got the M60 tank, in both A1 and A2 versions.  This one was produced in huge numbers, over 15,000 across it's many variants, and saw its main action during the Arab-Israeli Yom-Kipuur War.  The A2 'Starship' version had a completely new turret with both the 152mm gun and the Shillelagh anti-tank missile system.

And finally, a little treat for fsn as we've got the Centurion bridgelayer ready!  This is a huge piece of kit, with the bulked up Centurion plus bridge mechanism and the bridge itself, hence the higher pricing on it.  We're looking forward to seeing it in a game though!

Excellent Leon! Now I can start putting together my Weird World War 2 1945 Russians vs American/British armies! Was waiting on that M26, and it looks great!

MDV47 - Centurion Bridgelayer



 Cool

The "Number 6" was in service with BAOR from 1963 to 1974.   No hot engagements.  So if you want to see it in a Cold War game - we gamers need Soviet infantry to play with.   Rumour Control reckons  - if sticking to the present figure production  plan - that should happen around 2019/20. Way down the line after Korea and Arab Israeli....  That's a long time in the wargame world.

I have argued elsewhere on the forum for 10 stop gap Soviet figures  1960s-70s era to create games with Falklands Brits and Proxy Argies...

I'd question the M26 as being modern, WWII vehicle, out of service by 54....that's 62 years ago.

The post war/modern division is  a grey area.  With no major hot war and the cost of new weapons/embargos etc - WW2 and post war kit remained around for a long time.  Shermans in the Middle East,  T34/85s in Cyprus /a host of African nations, and I even saw an M36 in Bosnia. 

However, as Ian has argued, the M26 was essentially a WW2/Korea AFV. Around 300 deployed in Korean war.

My normal cut off is 56, as that's first use of AAGW, and Shermans left US Army service. Also ATGW start appearing in service quantities. (NO DONT MENTION THE X1, ALMOST CERTAINLY NEVER DEPLOYED IN 1944/5)

Shermans are still front line kit in South America, as are some Stuarts as I understand it (go-ooooo Paraguay!).

So the Modern period starts in '41, and is still going. Either that or we're still in WW2.

Very interesting !  The Brazilians did a massive rebuild of their Stuarts in the 1990s. I have a mate who is into restoration - bren gun carrier and M4 Sherman ...has been out to  Brazil several times chasing a Stuart hull...

The Brazillian ones were apparently so remodelled there's basically nothing left of the original tank! Someone posted a really good article (or link to the pdf of) about it, which went into considerable detail not just of the how, but the why's. Can't remember if that came up here or the Spearhead list or...

I think Paraguays are actually in training use/active reserve now, but if anyone started shooting I bet they'd see service quick as Smiley
