Description

1/35 Military Miniature Series No.326 US M1A2 SEP Abrams tanks TUSK II main battle tank model kit from Tamiya.

During the 2003 Invasion of Iraq, the U.S. deployed its latest M1A2 Abrams main battle tanks and these continued to be used in Iraq during the subsequent occupation period. Due to the threats posed by RPGs and improvised explosive devices (IEDs) in the urban environments, the tanks were upgraded with more protection in the form of Tank Urban Survival Kits (TUSK I) in 2004. The upgrade included features such as reactive armor on the hull sides, hull underside armor to protect against land mines, an M2 machine gun mounted above the main gun barrel, infrared cameras for the crew, and an external telephone for communication with accompanying infantry.

A further development called TUSK II added features such as tile-shaped reactive armor to the turret and hull sides, armored shield for the commander, and a rear-view camera. The TUSK kits could be installed in field depots in about 12 hours and different tanks had different features equipped. TUSK kits could only be installed in theatre due to the reactive armor.

The Tamiya 1/35 scale model uses new data gathered to ensure it is the best M1A1 kit in the model world.

  • 1/35 scale plastic assembly model kit of the latest M1A2 SEP Abrams.
  • Includes parts to depict both TUSK I and TUSK II features.
  • Detailed parts such as the armored shields for the commander and loader and barrel-mounted M2 machine gun are included.
  • Intricate curves of the reactive armor tiles are accurately reproduced.
  • Comes with one commander and one loader figure, both depicted with body armor.
  • Two marking options for TUSK I and one marking option for TUSK II-equipped tanks included.

This plastic kitset requires assembly, paints and glue to complete.
