- HISTORY ASPECTS:
- The M4A3E8 Sherman “Tiger Face” tank was a variant of the M4 Sherman tank used by the United States during the Korean War. It was primarily used by the 24th Infantry Division during the Han River campaign in 1951. The tank earned its name due to the distinctive tiger face painted on its front armor.
- The M4 Sherman tank was one of the most widely used tanks of World War II and continued to serve in many conflicts after the war. The M4A3E8 variant, also known as the “Easy Eight,” was an upgraded version with improved suspension and a more powerful engine. It saw significant use in the Korean War, where it was used by American and South Korean forces against the North Koreans and Chinese.
- The 24th Infantry Division played a crucial role in the Battle of the Han River, which took place in January 1951. The division, including the “Tiger Face” tank, was tasked with stopping a massive Chinese offensive that threatened to push UN forces back to the 38th parallel. The division successfully held the line, preventing the Chinese from crossing the Han River and turning the tide of the war.
- The “Tiger Face” tank is a popular subject among modelers due to its distinctive appearance and historical significance. The 1/72 scale model captures the details of the tank, including the unique paint scheme and markings.
- This model is a must-have for any history buff or model enthusiast looking to add a piece of military history to their collection. The “Tiger Face” tank serves as a reminder of the bravery and sacrifice of American soldiers during the Korean War. Get yours today and relive a piece of history!
