Altaya IXO M41A3 Walker Bulldog 4th Cavalry 25th Infantry Division – Thailand 1962.
1 M32 76mm.
1 M2 12,70 mm + 1 7,6 mm.
The M41 series was developed during 50’s , being the light U.S. Army tank during next two decades, replacing the M24 Chaffee. It takes his name from the General Walton Walker, who died during Korea’s conflict.
The tank had a little envelop during Korea’s conflict, where it arrives without previous testing, so it was tested during the conflict.
It was exported to several countries, some of them maintain it in service until our days, and the most important was probably the Vietnam Republican, where it saw action during the famous conflict.
Altaya’s model depict the A3 version, which was modified to injection fuel engines.
This time, model is quite bad, all the details over the turret and chassis looks pretty ugly, the gun is in a very low position and fixed, and the aerial are too thick. The worst model of the collection until now.
