    Product Description
    This is a plastic model kit, which comes unassembled and unpainted. So glue, model paints and other basic modelling tools are additionally required.

    Development of the M107 self-propelled weapon began in 1956; five years later in 1961 it was officially procured by U.S. forces, and in 1965 it was thrown into action in the rapidly-escalating conflict in Vietnam. The long-calibre 175mm gun gave the M107 a then peerless range of 32km, and it was mounted on a lightweight open-top hull to allow airlifting. The rear of the 5 man-crewed vehicle was fitted with a hydraulic spade. One of its more notable actions in the Vietnam War was during the Battle of Khe Sanh in 1968, as U.S. troops took advantage of its exceptional range to fire on North Vietnamese Army positions across the Demilitarized Zone in defense of the precarious position of the Khe Sanh Combat Base. After the U.S. withdrawal and up until the fall of Saigon in 1975, M107s continued to fight in the hands of South Vietnamese Army forces.
