One of the most iconic pieces of hardware in US Military history, over 40,000 M3 half-tracks were produced during World War II with many thousands of similar models also being supplied to their allies. The M3A1 was ideally suited to rushing troops to the front and through gaps in the enemy lines. With a top speed of 45 mph, and armored enough to keep out most small arms fire, they performed admirably in this role. They had a crew of three men and could carry ten fully equipped troops. There were many variations on the chassis including tank destroyers, mortar carriers and ambulances, but most frequent by far were the M3A1 with its armament of a heavy .50 cal heavy machine gun and two or more .30 cal machine guns. Mount up, boys! Includes full-color waterslide decal sheet, Bolt Action stat card and vehicle damage markers. This product is supplied unassembled and unpainted. Glue and paints not included.
Recreate World War II combat on a tabletop using dice, model troops, tanks and the rules constructed by Bolt Action against one or more opponents.
Each opposing side will also require painted model troops, representing the soldiers, guns and tanks of your chosen armies.
Tabletop encounters take place according to twelve closely defined battle scenarios that explain how forces are deployed and how victory is achieved.
All that remains is for players to pit their wits against each other as they enact just one small part of one of the greatest conflicts in history—World War II.
Build, paint and play! The construction and painting of the models and watching them come to life are just as much fun as the game itself!
