M-163 A-1 Vulcan

ITAS0269 M-163 A-1 Vulcan 1/35 $24.00
Due to its low cost and great liability the troop carrier Ml 13 presented itself as a valid base for various anti-tank weapons systems such as TOW missiles (no. 264) or an anti-aircraft gun such as this version. The M 163 was developed around a 20 mm gun. Rotating Barrels (with a rapid fire power of 6000 rounds per minute) were created for anti-aircraft use. The whole system is based on a simple, open turret with the munitions loaded on the inside of the vehicle. The M 163 is not only used for anti-aircraft defense, but also as infantry ground support vehicle because of its enormous fire power. Technical data: Length: 4,87 m; Width: 2,69 m; Height: 2,95 m; Weight:13,5 tons; Max. speed: 64 km/h; Range: 380 km; Armament:1 20 mm gun
