This model kit requires assembly. Cement, paint and other construction materials not included unless specifically stated in the description.
Officially designated as the Light Tank M24, the British gave this tank the service name 'Chaffee'.
Arguably the best light tank of the war, the vehicle was intended as a replacement for the M5 Stuart. The design departed quite a lot from those of earlier light tanks.
Twin Cadillac engines and Hydramatic transmission enabled the vehicle to achieve high speeds, while torsion-bar suspension granted it good cross-country capabilities.
A new lightweight 75mm gun packed decent firepower into the tank's turret which, coupled with its low silhouette, was a nice advantage for a light tank.
The M24 was used during the later part of World War II and in several post-war conflicts, from the Korean War to the First Indochina War.
