Armored Fighting Vehicles of WWII French Vehicles

They are the stuff of legend. They are the men and machines that fought to lay claim over vast swaths of Europe, North Africa and the Pacific at a time when the world quite literally hung in the balance. Amidst the carnage and destruction, these are the iconic tanks that will forever be etched into the annals of mid twentieth century armored warfare. These are the masters of mobile combat. These are the Armored Fighting Vehicles of World War II.

From concept through to final production, we're sure you'll be proud to add any and all of the Armored Fighting Vehicles of World War II to your armored collection. This series encompasses over 110 different models, and represent some of the most important tanks that emerged from the Second World War. . Each introduction is produced in 1,002 piece lots and comes packaged in a handsome acrylic display case and etched display base. Best of all, each comes bundled with a numbered collector card, meaning they're available in very limited numbers.

Our goal is to re-produce six vehicles per month -- in sequential order -- beginning this autumn, until all of the original vehicles produced under the Altaya brand name have been completely relaunched and reimagined. Once the series has run its course, we will then determine if additional vehicles and/or paint schemes are warranted and will continue to follow this strategy as long as collectors continue to show interest.
