When a total of 50 of these items have been requested, I will put these vehilces into production. This is not a pre order as such as I will not ask for payment of this model, until this model is ready for produciton and sale. This will allow me to create more unsual vehicles and the number we need to reach may differ depending on the vehicle. I will then send you a note/reminder that the models are ready for your purchase and whilst this is not a ‘contract for sale’ in any way Id hope you can fufill your commitment!
In the middle of the Cold War, there was some debate regarding the main tank weapon of the future, largely focused on conventional kinetic energy rounds (cannon shell) versus missiles. In 1966, in an effort to utilize both capabilities, General Dynamics Land Systems designed a new low profile turret, equipped with a 152mm Gun/Missile Launch system that could fire conventional HEAT (High-Explosive Anti-Tank) and HE (High-Explosive) rounds, or launch ATGMs (Anti-Tank Guided-Missiles).
The new turret was mated to a Medium Tank M60 Patton hull, creating the M60A2, unofficially nicknamed the “Starship”. Though the vehicle was one the most technologically complex of its era, this also contributed to its failure, largely due to difficulties with maintenance, training, and complicated operation.
The tank will contain 1 plastic M60a2 Starship MBT . The crew and parts will be made of resin and metal parts. This is not suitable for small children.
The final cost of the model will be approximately £8.50 with cheaper platoon packs
