LVT(4) Amtrac Section (UBX46)

LVT(4) Amtrac Section (UBX46)
Includes two LVT(4) Amphibious Tractors

Amphibious Tractors (Amtracs) were originally designed to carry supplies ashore. Their ability to cross coral reefs and sand meant that they were quickly modified with armour and machine-guns to allow the Marines to land infantry under fire.

Gung-Ho
The US Marine Corps has had a long and proud history, and the Pacific Campaign of 1941 to 1945 was perhaps its finest hour. They were the tip of the American spear, conducting amphibious assaults from Guadalcanal, through the Marshall Islands, Saipan, Tinian and Guam, and ultimately taking the Japanese posessions of Iwo Jima and Okinawa, in preparation to invade mainland Japan itself.
