A total of 510 LVT(A)-1 vehicles were eventually produced. It could achieve speeds of 12km/h in water, and the vehicle weighed 13,180kg. This important amtrac was used in such battles as Saipan, Guam, Tinian and Peleliu during the bloody Pacific campaign.Dragon has already successfully recreated the LVT(A)-1 in 1/72 scale as a plastic kit. This highly accurate kit forms the basis for Dragon Armor's new fully built-up version of this vehicle. The miniature model boasts a complicated suspension system, as well as a well-detailed deck upon which even the weld seams are visible. The turret is also well constructed, and it boasts a hollowed-out gun muzzle.

LVT-(A)1 Co.C 708th Amphibious Tank Battalion, Saipan 1944 (1:72) by Dragon Diecast ArmorItem Number: DRR60499WWII saw a number of... innovative new solutions to meet the demands of modern combat. One such class of military vehicle was the amphibious tractor, often referred to by US servicemen as amtracs. The first such Landing Vehicles Tracked (LVT) were produced by the Food Machinery Corporation (FMC) for the US military. The original military LVT-1 appeared in 1941, but one weakness was its lack of armored protection, especially in amphibious assaults. The LVT(A)-1 helped rectify this shortcoming, with the "A" in the nomenclature representing "armored".Despite what its name suggests, the LVT(A)-1 was actually based on the LVT-2, and it was employed as a fire support vehicle. It featured an M3 Stuart turret containing a 37mm M6 gun. A total of 510 LVT(A)-1 vehicles were eventually produced. This important amtrac was used at Saipan during the bloody Pacific campaign.Dragon Armor is offering a fully built-up 1/72 scale model of an LVT(A)-1. The vehicle is finely detailed, including the complicated suspension system. Details such as weld seams and a hollow gun muzzle are present. The pre-painted miniature is finished in a striking ocean gray shade, a color that unfortunately provided little camouflage when fighting on land. The model's markings identify "Crazy Legs" as coming from C Company of the 708th Amphibious Tank Battalion at the time of the Saipan landings. This US Army battalion with 68 LVTs was among the initial assault wave that landed there on 15 June 1944. The two yellow stripes on the pontoon sides denote its designated landing area of "Yellow Beach Two". read more

LVT-(A)1, Pacific Theater Operation 1945 (1:72) by Dragon Diecast ArmorItem Number: DRR60522 The American Landing Vehicle Tracked ...(LVT) was a vital weapon in the Allied island-hopping campaign in the Pacific theater during WWII. As well as being used for carrying cargo as was originally intended, they were soon being used in the amphibious assault role too. The Amtrac allowed soldiers and Marines to reach enemy-held beaches, protecting them with armor and supporting them with their weapons. Based on the LVT-2 variant, the armored LVT(A)-1 was produced from 1942 onwards. As a fire support vehicle, it was fitted with an M3 tank-style turret mounting a 37mm M6 gun. It also featured a couple of machine guns, and a total of 510 units were manufactured.Dragon Armor already offers quite a wide variety of LVTs in its 1/72 scale range. However, this new LVT(A)-1 offers something a little different. Although the original vehicle's exact unit of origin is unknown, the green-painted amtrac is known to have participated in the Pacific campaign during 1945. What sets it apart is the colorful illustration of a shark's face on the bow plate. The illustration boasts a series of sharp teeth and two eyes designed to intimidate enemies. Although it cannot be ascertained what effect these markings had on Japanese defenders, it certainly is impressive in 1/72 scale. This is one model that collectors would like to set their eyes on and sink their teeth into! read more

IJA Type 97 "Chi-Ha" Early Production, Co.4, 34th Tank Regiment, North China 1945 (1:72) by Dragon Diecast ArmorItem Number: DRR60...432Features:- Highly popular and collectible item- True to 1/72 scale- Fully accurate mold- Fully assembled- Historically accurate markings and insignia- Includes protective display case The 1/72 scale Japanese Type 97 Chi-Ha tank has proved an extremely popular Dragon Armor item. Now Dragon is adding an Early-Production variant to the collection, this time representing a vehicle fighting at the close of WWII. The Type 97 was Japan_??s most widely produced medium tank of WWII. Boasting a 57mm main gun and two Type 97 machine guns, this tank was intended to serve as an up-scaled version of the Type 95 for infantry support. Armor protection was modest on this vehicle. A total of 2,123 Chi-Ha tanks were produced from 1938-43, most of which carried the low-velocity 57mm gun. The tank could move at a speed of 38km/h.One area where the Chi-Ha was deployed was China. Dragon Armor_??s model depicts a tank belonging to the 4th Tank Company of the 34th Tank Regiment. This regiment belonging to the 1st Independent Tank Brigade was created in 1944; it was one of nine independent tank brigades formed at the end of WWII in Japan and northeast China to act as a mobile force. The 34th Tank Regiment spent the entirety of its short existence in China until the war ended. As well as being an Early-Production version, what stands out most on this model is the striking camouflage scheme consisting of three colors plus bright bands of yellow. Markings painted onto the hull suggest this tank was sponsored by members of the Japanese public, with the characters representing 'patriotic__. This attractive item allows collectors to field another Japanese tank from WWII. read more
The Type 97 Chi-Ha medium tank that Dragon Armor previously released was a very popular item. An extra version of this 1/72 scale ...tank is being added to the collection's Japanese tank fleet in the form of a Late-Production variant. The Type 97 was Japan's most widely produced medium tank of WWII. Boasting a short-barreled 57mm main gun and two Type 97 machine guns, this tank was intended to serve as an up-scaled version of the Type 95 for infantry support. Armor protection was modest on this vehicle. A total of 2,123 tanks were produced from 1938-43, although 930 of these were of the improved version featuring a higher-velocity 47mm gun. The tank could move at a speed of 38km/h.The Chi-Ha was used in combat in Manchuria and China, as well as fighting against the Allies. The new Dragon Armor model portrays a vehicle belonging to the 14th Independent Tank Company of the Imperial Japanese Army (IJA). This unit was hastily formed right at the end of WWII in response to fears of an invasion from the north by the Soviet Red Army. The 1/72 scale model depicts a tank deployed on Jeju Island (part of present-day South Korea) south of the Korean peninsular. The Late-Production Chi-Ha sports a two-color camouflage scheme plus unique lightning bolt markings on the turret. Japanese tanks of WWII don't gain the attention that German ones usually do, so this model allows collectors to get further acquainted with a very important Japanese tank design. read more

Flakpanzer V "Coelian" German 1945 (1:72) by Dragon ArmorUltimate Armor series is a new line-up of Dragon Armor, featuring unusual... and rare vehicle types such as this first release Flakpanzer V "Coelian". These unique items will cater to the demands of discerning collectors. More rare fighting-vehicles will be coming up soon. Stay tuned!Germany's Luftwaffe was numerically outnumbered as WWII progressed, with the Fatherland and tactical units constantly being bombed and strafed by enemy aircraft. This called for more effective antiaircraft systems than Germany hitherto possessed, which initially were often poorly protected halftracks. New self-propelled AA types were put into service, including the Flakpanzer IV. A new type was also planned ? the Flakpanzer V "Coelian" from Rheinmetall. The Coelian featured a special armored turret that would protect the crew inside the vehicle. It used a standard Panther tank chassis upon which were mounted twin 3.7cm FlaK 43 cannons.Ultimate Armor is now offering a fine 1/72 scale model of this interesting-looking German AA vehicle. It features the dual antiaircraft guns mounted based on a Panther chassis. The fully enclosed turret is a brand new molding, carefully replicating the prototypical structure and the twin-barrel cannons mounted inside. The turret and gun system is made true to scale. The model is finished in a dark yellow painting scheme. While this system never had the requisite time to get off the drawing board, Dragon's engineers are proud to bring this exciting model to collectors! read more
1/72 T-34/85 1st Battalion, 63rd Guards Tank Brigade 1944
Dragon earlier produced a simply stunning 1/35 scale Smart Kit of the Japanese Type 2 'Ka-Mi' amphibious tank, and now the company... has used it as a platform to create a 1/72 Dragon Armor version. The Type 2 was the first amphibious tank used by the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN). It was designed for Japanese landing forces performing amphibious invasions of Pacific islands that didn't have regular port facilities. Production commenced in 1942 and a total of 184 Type 2 amphibious tanks were made, although the design was really too late to participate in Japan's island-hopping campaign. When used in water, large pontoons were attached to the glacis plate and rear deck to give it a top speed of 10km/h. These pontoons could be shed as soon as it reached land. The turret featured a 3.7cm Type 1 gun and coaxial Type 97 machine gun. read more

It has the Porsche turret, which was later assigned to the Tiger II, mounted well to the rear of the hull producing a most unique profile. The model is finished in a typical late-war camouflage scheme of two colors, this being punctuated by the barest of extra markings in the form of Balkenkreuz. The VK.45.02(P) is beautifully painted and weathered, and the detail on the heavy tank prototype is very complete. This Porsche prototype offers collectors something new and different to add to their panzer forces. read more

These unique items will cater to the demands of discerning collectors. Many such rare fighting-vehicles will be coming up soon. Stay tuned!At the start of WWII, the Luftwaffe ruled the skies, but this dominance was gradually overturned as the war progressed. This led to a dire need for more antiaircraft vehicles for ground forces, and early efforts at producing a Flakpanzer centered on the Panzer IV chassis. However, the famous German Panther medium tank was also used as a platform for developmental work, with the Coelian perhaps being the best-known example. In May 1943, a proposed Rheinmetall design showed two pairs of Vierling MG151/20 antiaircraft cannons mounted in a Turm Panther II. This turret was heavily armored and it featured the pairs of cannons offset from each other and mounted at different heights. This early Flakpanzer design never advanced much further?except in terms of Dragon Armor's superb new 1/72 scale model that shows it in fully finished form and with an intriguing camouflage scheme! read more
