In Africa and the Middle East, 4×4’s and pickup trucks are often used by armies and paramilitaries in place of tanks and military-specific vehicles. These ‘Technicals’ are often upgraded with larger weapons, .50 calibers and recoilless rifles, allowing them to cross deserts and rough ground quickly, whilst bringing a surprising amount of firepower. The Technicals are usually loaded with supplies, water tanks and other stowage, allowing them to keep these forces marching.
This ‘Isuzu Technical’ is loaded with a M40 recoilless rifle, an imposing sight for such a standard car.
M40 recoilless Rifle is multi-part – stand height can be adjusted to suit.
This model measures 120mm x 40mm x 55mm, and is made of resin, supplied unpainted and unassembled.
Approximately 1/48th scale.
