The M48 was used extensively by both the USMC and the US Army throughout the Vietnam war, with over 600 being deployed in Vietnam from 1965 onward. Primarily an infantry support tank it was used extensively and performed well in country. When US forces began redeployment in 1973 many of them were handed over to Army of the Republic of Vietnam, and the M48 was still seeing service into the 1980s making it a very versatile tank for many periods and nations.

As you'd expect the kit from Empress is very well detailed with clean castings and all the requisite pieces to make an accurate tabletop model.

This kit also comes with the addition of a spare road wheel and track links that can be attached for a more unique version of the tank and an option for the 50cal to either pintle mount it or have it attached to the commanders cupola.
