Product description

The LVT-4 Water Buffalo, also known as "Water Buffalo", was another important development in the Landing Vehicle, Tracked (LVT) series. This model differed from its predecessors with improved accessibility and increased capacity, largely thanks to a large tailgate that facilitated loading and unloading of troops and equipment. This feature made the LVT-4 particularly effective in amphibious operations as it allowed for faster offloading of troops directly at the front lines.

Areas of Use: The LVT-4 was used extensively in the Pacific Theater during World War II, particularly in the large-scale amphibious assaults on the Japanese-occupied islands. He also played a role in the European theaters of war, particularly during the Allied landings in Italy and Normandy.

For which country: Used primarily by the United States, LVT-4s also found use with British and other Allied forces.

Possible uses in tabletop games:

  • Bolt Action: Ideal for depicting amphibious landing missions where rapid and efficient unloading of troops is required.
  • Flames of War: The LVT-4 can be used as a mechanized transport for infantry in Pacific or European theater scenarios.
  • Chain of Command: Offers interesting options for scenarios that emphasize the importance of logistics and rapid troop movement.

                      3D SLA printing

                      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.
