The Landing Craft Mechanised (LCM) Mk.III was the most widely used LCM during World War II, with more than 8,600 being built in yards in the USA. They were employed by both the US Navy and the Royal Navy. The LCM Mk.III was extensively used in operations in the European and Pacific theatres from 1942, with many hundreds taking part in the "D-Day" landings in Normandy in June 1944. The Sherman M4A2 Tank was the best-known of all American medium tanks and was designed in 1941 as an improvement on the earlier M3 Lee and Grant series. After initial production in 1942, large numbers of Sherman's were issued to the British Army and the type became the standard Allied medium tank.
From its extensive lifespan during the war to high demand with both the US and Royal Navy, the LCM3 & Sherman was a much-relied on tank in the battlefield and will become an equally fitting part of your Airfix collection. This 1:76 scale replica exclusively from Airfix comes with sprues and decals, two livery shames and measures at 194mm, making it the perfect addition to your model range or as a gift for the military enthusiast in your life.
