Minefields were a constant hazard for invading U.S. forces during the Persian Gulf War of 1991; chief among their countermeasures was the trusty M1A1 tank fitted with a mine plow. This plastic model assembly kit expertly recreates such an M1A1 Abrams with mine guard and plow blade equipment depicted using separate parts. Metal chains and enamel wire are included, to be employed in the recreation of the roller at the front of the vehicle. Modelers can choose to assemble the model with hatches open or closed, and will be delighted by the range of accessories, including spare wheels, ammo cases and more! The kit comes with a full body commander figure and loader torso figure to further enhance its realism.
