American anti tank

Now that`s more like it, a nice WW2 subject not done before, late war 3in I hope.

Re: American anti tank

Why not make it the year of tha AT sets?

Why not a third reich 88mm, 75mm and 37mm AT - only joking!

A few Allied pieces of equipment would be nice as they are usually overlooked!

A British AT still ignored (except the pheasant version) is the 17pdr and the Hotchkiss 25mm (1934 version please!) for the French and BEF infantry.

Will the Finnish set include the Boyd AT - they found it very effective

Re: American anti tank

If it includes a 37 or 57mm gun with crew, I'm buying at least two boxes. If it has a bazooka, PLEASE include a leader too.

Even in case it's an early war set, the gunners could be converted. But if it's a late war set, please consider making a standard infantry set too, as currently there is no definitive go-to set for the Americans.

I'm with Zirrian on this one. A realistic US WW2 infantry set would be a hit. The existing sets have too many Thompsons and too few riflemen. The market's crying out for squads with a BAR gunner and the rest with M1 Garands.

Oh, I've got the impression that the Boys did not impress Finnish soldiers using them.

Still it could be an intresting item in a set.

Re: American anti tank

One thing for the Finns - if you release the anti tank weapons, please reissue the general infantry too because the Continuation War set especially is getting hard to find.

They certainly found them effective against the Russian tanks but looking at Finnish Ski troops with them you must wonder how they carried them due to their weight. The other problem was the kick which was said to be like a mule.
