The M48 Patton is an American first generation main battle tank (MBT) introduced in February 1952, being designated as the 90mm Gun Tank: M48. It was designed as a replacement for the M26 Pershing, M4 Sherman variants and M46 Pattons used in the Korean War, and as the successor to the M47 Patton. Nearly 12,000 M48s were built, mainly by Chrysler and American Locomotive Company, from 1952 to 1961. The M48 underwent many design modifications and improvements during its production life. This led to a wide variety of suspension systems, cupola styles, power packs, fenders and other details among individual tanks.

THE KIT:

  • The tough appearance of the tank, including its cast metal surface texture and canvas section of the gun mantlet is accurately reproduced.
  • Details such as the searchlight and machine gun cupola are also brimming with realism.
  • The kit includes accessory parts such as an engine exhaust snorkel, jerry cans, and spare track links as well as 2 tank crew figures
