M4 81mm Armored Mortar Platoon
includes three metal, resin and plastic M4 81mm Armored Carriers, one Decal Sheet and one Unit card.
The M4 MMC (Mortar Motor Carriage) carries an 81mm Mortar in a specially modified halftrack, with a reinforced floor that allows the weapon to fire from inside the vehicle. This means they’re always on hand to give indirect fire support the instant it is needed.
The M4 81mm Mortar Carrier
To provide close artillery support for the US Armored Infantry there was a requirement for a halftrack to be developed to provide the mobility desired, as well as capable of carrying the M1 81mm Mortar and sufficient ammunition to support an attack or harass an enemy in defence.
The first M4 Mortar Carrier rolled off the production line in August 1941 and there were a total of 572 manufactured. They first saw action with the 1st Armored Division in North Africa in 1942.
The 81mm mortar was placed in the rear compartment of the half-track and pointed rearwards. Additional 81mm mortar bomb stowage compartments were placed behind the standard stowage boxes.
A rear door was installed on the M4, but the machine gun skate mount was retained, forcing crewmen to crawl under the skate rail if they wanted to use the rear door. The mortar was intended to be fired from the ground, except for emergency situations, so the vehicles mortar mount was very limited in traverse.

The Type 38 became the standard field gun of the Imperial Japanese Army at the conclusion of the Russo-Japanese War in 1905.
Built under licence from the famed German gun manufacturer Krupp; the Type 38 was a relatively simple design which meant that a greater number of guns could be built in a shorter time span.
Fighting First Tokens
includes two Ranged In tokens, four Foxholes tokens, eight Pinned Down tokens, one Leader token, four Gone To Ground tokens and one Anti-Aircraft token.
Even though they are toy soldiers, your troops react to heavy fire like real soldiers. Sometimes they get pinned down or bail out of their tanks. They can dig foxholes for protection or go to ground, hiding from the enemy. Tokens help you keep track of the state of your troops.
