The M1 Abrams was developed during the Cold War as a successor to the canceled MBT-70. The M1 Abrams contract went to Chrysler Defense and was the first vehicle to adopt Chobham armor. Adaptations before the Persian Gulf War (Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm) gave the vehicle better firepower and NBC (Nuclear, Biological and Chemical) protection. Being vastly superior to Iraqi tanks, very few M1 tanks were hit by enemy fire. Upgrades after the war improved the tank's weapons sights and fire control unit. The invasion of Iraq in 2003 destroyed Iraq's military. Vulnerabilities in urban combat were addressed with the TUSK modification. The Marine Corps sent a company of M1A1 Abrams tanks to Afghanistan in 2010.

Rye Field Models steps up its excellent M1 Abrams series with a full interior kit straight from the box! Not just crew compartments - but even a full engine and engine bay is now available for full display as an option, including parts for ammunition storage within the turret. Full length-and-link tracks included for ease of assembly, and decal options for two service vehicles are included.

This release from Rye Field is filled to the brim of the box with details, and a worthy addition to any modern armour modeller’s display shelf! Good luck placing the lid back on once you inspect the parts - it is that full of plastic!

High quality, precision plastic model kit. Metal photo etch parts included in the box. Paint and glue not included. Requires assembly and painting. For intermediate to advanced skill modellers.
