War Master WMTK045 US M163 A1 Vulcan Air Defense System - 5th Battalion, 2nd Artillery Regiment, Panama, Operation Just Cause, 1989 (1:72 Scale) "We will carry out a campaign characterized by shock, by surprise, by flexibility ... and by the application of overwhelming force."
- CENTCOM commander General Tommy Franks commenting on the conduct of Operation: Iraqi Freedom, March 21st, 2003

The M163 Vulcan Air Defense System (VADS) is a self-propelled anti-aircraft gun (SPAAG) that was used by the United States Army. The M168 gun is a variant of the General Dynamics 20 mm M61 Vulcan rotary cannon, the standard cannon in most U.S. combat aircraft since the 1960s, mounted on either an armored vehicle or a trailer.

Pictured here is a 1:72 scale replica of an US M163 A1 Vulcan Air Defense System that was attached to the 5th Battalion, 2nd Artillery Regiment, then deployed to Panama during 1989. Now in stock!
