Empress Miniatures have been sharing some more of what they have in the works for their Vietnam range. They are gearing up to include some stylish looking PBR options into your US army in the near future.

PBR #1 - Empress Miniatures

If you're heading up the rivers of Vietnam then you need a heavily armed boat to cover your troops as they head off into the jungle in search of the enemy. This 28mm kit will come with some big ol' 50 Cals onboard plus the M60 and Grenade Launcher. Why not have all the big guns?

PBR #2 - Empress Miniatures

Interestingly, PBR pilots were usually fiercely attached to their boats and they would go to great lengths to keep them operational and they even took the time to personalise them when they could. Included in this kit you'll get a surfboard and ghetto blaster for good measure!

If you watched one of the recent Grand Tour episodes you'll remember that Clarkson took a PBR as his craft of choice. He talked about how they would have to go at incredibly high speeds in order to maintain their manoeuvrability and of course it helped when you were looking to avoid sniper fire from the depths of the jungle!

PBR Guns - Empress Miniatures

These are some fun little additions into the wider Empress Miniatures collection and it's good to see them (hopefully) going into production sooner rather than later. I could see some fun scenarios being set up on the tabletop with these involved.

Empress Miniatures also mentioned that they are getting some crew made to resemble the characters from Apocalypse Now so watch out for previews on that front too!

What do you make of this PBR?
