Italeri 1/35 M923 Hillbilly Military Gun Truck

SKU: ITA6513

This medium cargo truck of the 5 ton category, is representative of today's generation of logistical vehicles of the U.S. Forces. It entered service in the early eighties. The M-923 has an extremely sturdy structure and excellent off-road features, which are necessary to secure the flow of material to the front line combat units. Based on this chassis many versions have been produced: wrecking trucks, tank trucks, mobile maintenance and communication trucks. The A-1 version is characteristic because of its large off-road tires which have earned it the nick-name "big-foot". During its operational use, and in particular in the most recent military campaigns in which it was employed as Iraq and Afghanistan, the 'Big Foot ½ has often been modified with the addition of 'home made ½ protections to reduce the damages caused by the fire of light weapons. However, the personalization of the vehicles, made 'on field ½ by the crews, were possible thanks to the excellent platform offered by-M-923 trucks.
