Airfix have a vast array of military vehicles which can be subdivided into Field Gun Sets, Military Transporters and Tanks. Most models have a scale of 1:76 but some are 1:72. Many are skill level 2.
Artillery generally means weapons capable of reaching much further ranges than personal weapons and here you will find a number of Field Artillery pieces and modern artillery is usually large calibre, firing at low angles, often sitting on a carriage to manoeuvre (and also to fire from) and includes equipment such as the field gun, cannon, and rocket, all used to support troops in the field. Here you will discover Airfix’s range of different field guns as well as carriers. The carriers were vital in order to move the guns around as and when needed and as different battle situations arose. They were used in both the First and Second World Wars.
Airfix Field Guns include the 25pdr (and Morris Quad used to tow it), the Bren Gun Carrier and 6 Pounder Anti Tank Gun used effectively against German Tanks, the AEC Matador carrying the 5.5” Gun which became a proper workhorse, the 88 Anti Tank Gun and Tractor used against Russian Tanks, the Swedish Bofors Gun and Tractor used as an anti aircraft weapon, the Opel Blitz Truck with Pak 40 Anti tank gun which showed great resilience and the British Light Field Gun which was usually towed by a Landrover. Tank weaponry included the 75mm Assault Gun which comes on a turret-less Panzer tank body.
Military transport includes the popular Bedford QLT Truck which was used extensively for carrying troops, and the QLD version was used for carrying cargo, the QL sometimes being referred to as ‘Queen Lizzie’ as a nickname. Other Bedford trucks include the MK 4 Tonne used for carrying general purpose loads and the MK series also included an adapted 4 tonne truck for use as a Tactical Aircraft Refueller. Landover's are also a well-liked choice and come as a 1 tonne ambulance, as well as the more modern long wheel based (LWB) soft top and trailer all purpose army vehicles or hard topped version as an alternative.
