Parachute 75mm Artillery Battery (Plastic) (UBX66)

Parachute 75mm Artillery Battery (Plastic) (UBX66)
includes four Parachute or Glider Plastic 75mm  Pack Howitzer guns and crew, four Plastic five-hole Medium Bases, one Plastic Base Insert Sprue, and two Unit cards.

Vital to the survival of the airborne division is the air-transportable parachute field artillery battery equipped with the M1A1 75mm pack howitzer. Each gun can be broken down into nine parachute loads. These are all tied together and dropped as a single aircraft load. If all goes well, they’ll still be all together on landing. The bundles can be quickly located by the crew and assembled so as to go into action in support of the parachute infantry regiments immediately.

D-Day American
It started with an Airborne assault, hitting vital defences behind the enemy lines. It was followed by a full scale amphibious invasion on the beaches of Normandy. Operation Overlord was in full swing, with about 160,000 men crossing the English Channel to land on the beaches of Normandy on D-Day alone. The German defensive positions proved to be a tough nut to crack. The day would be hard fought, ending with the Allies securing a tenuous foothold on the beachheads, but it was enough to withstand the following German Counter-attacks and eventually break out of Normandy. The war for Europe was now being fought in earnest, as the allies raced to liberate France and bring the war to Hitler’s front door.
