Produktbeschreibung

Desert Rats Grant Armoured Troop
(BBX37)

includes five plastic Grant tanks, one plastic Tank Commander sprue, one Decal sheets and five Unit Cards.

British armoured regiments were delighted to receive the new American-made M3 Grant tank, which gave them a tank with a gun as good as those on the German panzers, with armour to match. Rushed into service to meet the urgent need for a heavy 75mm-armed tank it took the Germans by surprise. Its thick armour and powerful 75mm gun are superior to most of the German panzers.
Its only real downside is its height, which makes it a conspicuous target in the desert. The placement of the 75mm gun makes it difficult to conceal the tank in a hull-down position behind terrain. At Alam el Halfa, with time to prepare a static defence, the British were able to partly overcome these difficulties by carefully choosing the placement of each Grant.

The Grant
The agreement between the US and Britain did not allow for British designs to be made in US factories, so in 1940 Britain ordered M3 Medium tanks from various US manufacturers. These first vehicles were purchased directly and were not part of the later lend-lease program. Because of this, the British were able to make a few modifications to the initial American design and the Grant was born.
A larger turret was built, without the machine-gun cupola, to house the British radio requirements inside the turret (as opposed to the US design mounting it in the hull). Though longer and wider, the turret was lowered to reduce the tanks silhouette, adding to the effect of removing the cupola.
Like the US M3 Medium, it was armed with a 75mm gun in a sponson mounted on the right side of the hull front and a 37mm gun in the turret. It was named by the British the Grant after the famous American Civil War general Ulysses S. Grant.
It proved a popular and morale boosting addition to the ranks of the 8th Army. The dual-purpose 75mm gun (firing both HE and AP ammunition) gave the British the edge they were after in the desert when it was introduced, with the deliveries of 200 vehicles starting in early 1942.
167 Grants served successfully with the 4th Armoured Brigade during the Gazala battle.

In the fast-moving environment of the desert war, it is the tanks that usually get all the glory. But the hard work still belongs to the PBI, the ‘Poor Bloody Infantry’. For such a small unit, a motor company has plenty of firepower at its disposal. Their machine-guns, anti-tank guns, and mortars can deal with almost any opposition.
