This is a re-issue of the 1/35 scale model kit of the AAVP7A1 amphibious troop transport. First introduced in 1972 under the name of LVTP-7, this venerable vehicle has seen a number of upgrades and refits, and is still deployed by the U.S. Marine Corps today. It has seen action in a number of conflicts including the 1983 invasion of Grenada, the Gulf War and 2003 invasion of Iraq. Newer variants were fitted with the Up-Gunned Weapon Station (UGWS), a turret mounted with an MK19 40mm grenade launcher and M2 heavy barrel .50 caliber machine gun.

Amphibious operations (the landing of personnel, equipment and supplies from ships onto a hostile shore) are considered by military tacticians to be the most complex and difficult of all military operations. The U.S. Marine Corps is the military organization in America charged with this responsibility. Formerly known as the LVTP7A1, the FMC manufactured AAVP7A1 now has the role of an Assault Amphibious Vehicle, Personnel, to counter any hostile threat during landing operations. This versatile vehicle can navigate in the ocean waves 3 meters high while carrying 25 fully equipped Marines and can even withstand total immersion without sinking. It is a very large tracked vehicle, being almost the same length as the U.S. M1A1 Abrams main battle tank. The latest version is equipped with a newly designed turret known as the "Upgunned Weapons station", which is manufactured by the Cadillac Gage firm, in America. The turret is a one man armament station mounting the MK 19 Model-3 40mm (grenade) machine gun and a coaxially mounted M2 heavy barrel .50 caliber machine gun. The primary mode of operation for the armament station is manual. However, in azimuth the system incorporates a Power Assist Travers (PAT) mechanism. The PAT enables the gunner to quick slew under power at a minimum rate of 45 deg./sec., and then manually fine lay his weapons on the target. This highly formidable weapon station replaces t

The T34/85 was built with the aim of overpowering the new and improved German Tiger and Panther tanks which the Russian forces were encountering. It was given a powerful 85mm main gun and a 3-man turret enclosed by cast-iron heavy armor, while the hull featured sloped armor. Nonetheless, it was a relatively lightweight vehicle and thanks to the power supplied by the 500hp V-12 diesel engine was very maneuverable. Around 29,000 were produced between late 1943 and June 1945, and together with its predecessor the T34/76 it provided the impetus for the Russian advance on Berlin.

The familiar Jeep was born during WW2 and it is said that it contributed greatly to the allied victory during that time. Following the conflict, this vehicle was widely used by most countries of the world as a small transport for the ground forces and later employed large calibre weapons systems for ground combat support.

The U.S. Army first utilized this small vehicle in ground support firepower, by mounting the newly designed 105mm recoilless rifle in the rear of the Jeep. This weapon was developed to combat heavily armoured tanks and other tracked vehicles; however it was later adapted to anti-personnel operations with the development of anti-personnel shell charges. When the newer 106mm recoilless rifle came into being, it replaced the 105. This weapons system was mounted in the rear part of the Jeep, but could be also dismounted on a tri-pod for fixed use. As the old jeep became replaced with the newer M151 Ford MUTT, the 106 was also adapted to it. When the M151A2 was released during the late 70's, the model with the 106 rifle mounted was called M825. It had a beefed up rear suspension system to accept the rifles added weight of 325kg. Shortly the TOW missile system replaced the 106 recoiless rifles, as the main anti-tank mobile weapons system. Development of the TOW system began in the 1960's as a replacement for the large and heavy recoilless rifles. It was combat tested during the Vietnam conflict and proved its power and accuracy. It was further improved and finally replaced most of the 106's still in service.

Officially it is called the BGM-71A; however, it is most widely called the TOW missile system which stands for Tube launched, Optically tracked, Wire guided, missile system. When the missile is fired at a target, the shooter maintains the target in the cross hairs of the sight. The infrared rays of the missile exhaust are sensed by the optical sight and the computer compensated for the speed of the target an
