Description Extended Information
 
Hobby Master HG5505 West German M48 A2 Patton Medium Tank - Panzerbataillon 24, Braunschweig, West Germany, 1962 (1:72 Scale) "History is the sum total of things that could have been avoided."
- Konrad Adenauer, First Chancellor of West Germany, 1949-1963

When the Korean War began, the US military had no medium tanks in production. The M47 appeared as an interim measure but work immediately began on the M48. The first 'Pattons' were completed in July 1952. Unfortunately, the speed of development resulted in numerous teething troubles for the early Pattons, including poor reliability and a short operating range. The A3 was a highly modified version designed to rectify these failings, and the M48 has been used as the basis for flame-thrower tanks, recovery vehicles, and an AVLB. The A5 was an upgraded version produced in the mid-1970s, which extended the M48's shelf life considerably.

Pictured here is a 1:72 scale replica of a West German M48 A2 Patton Medium Tank that was attached to Panzerbataillon 24, then deployed to Braunschweig, West Germany, during 1962. Pre-order! Ship Date: August 2014.
