The set offers a nicely detailed 3D printed replica of the US made recoilless cannon that was developed and introduced to service in 1944. A two man team of a loader and a gunner supported their fellow fighters by a „pocket“ artillery fire. The weapon could be operated from shoulder, a tripod or even a M1917 heavy machine gun stand. The M18 saw wide use in the Korea war, and even though it had already been obsolete by then, it was also used by the Vietnamese army and used successfully in jungle battles against the communist PAVN. Thanks to being 3D printed, our set offers many very delicate details unachievable by any other production method. Besides the printed parts, the set also contains etches and offers the various styles of stands used, including that of the M1917 type.Comes with etches too.
