Empress Miniatures have been firing out new Vietnamese releases like a Rifle, Multiple 106 mm, Self-propelled, M50!

Nicknamed the Ontos, which is literally Greek for thing, it was developed as a lightweight tank destroyer that could be lifted by the US armies cargo planes. But the Army cancelled the project.

Thankfully the Marines saw the value in six recoilless 105 mm rifles and the reports from in-country engagements were excellent. It saw service throughout the Vietnam conflict finally being withdrawn from service in 1969.

Empress Miniatures have once again released another beautiful and unique kit and I can see a lot of US Marine players investing in this and probably a lot more of the ever-expanding range that Paul Hicks is sculpting for them.

Is the Ontos your kind of Thing?
