Product description

The LVT(A)-2 Buffalo was an evolution of the LVT (Landing Vehicle, Tracked) series, an amphibious landing vehicle used by the United States Armed Forces in World War II and subsequent conflicts. Unlike its predecessor, the LVT(A)-1, the LVT(A)-2 was not armed with a cannon, but was primarily used to transport troops and material. Its armored version offered improved protection against small-caliber fire and shrapnel.

Areas of Operation: The LVT(A)-2 was used primarily in the Pacific Theater, particularly in the numerous amphibious assaults on Japanese-occupied islands. Its ability to operate directly from ship to beach and beyond made it a key element in overcoming coastal defenses.

For which country: United States

Possible uses in tabletop games:

  • Bolt Action: Ideal for scenarios depicting amphibious landings in the Pacific to bring troops directly into combat.
  • Flames of War: Perfect for representing the U.S. Marines and their operations in the Pacific, the LVT(A)-2 offers a unique combination of mobility and troop carrying capacity.
  • Chain of Command: Offers interesting options for special missions involving amphibious assaults and overcoming beach defenses.

              3D SLA printing
              In gray to paint yourself
              Scale: 1:56 / 28mm


              The miniatures come to you unpainted and some of them have to be assembled yourself - a little superglue can work wonders here! Sometimes there may be small residues or slight damage caused by the support structures, but unfortunately these cannot always be completely avoided. But don't worry, this won't affect the quality of your model.

              However, it should be noted that due to the 3D SLA printing process, slight distortions (up to 1mm) may occur on larger parts. However, these small imperfections are easily repaired with modeling putty (Green Stuff).

              It's just a small part of the process that gives your set a unique character. Have fun painting and assembling!

              Even though the figures are great to play with, it is important to remember that they are not suitable for small children. There is a risk that small parts could break off. Miniatures should not be viewed as toys.
