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.
