Alert Line WWII USMC BAR Gunner Uniform Set

The Browning Automatic Rifle (BAR) is a family of American automatic rifles and machine guns used by the United States and numerous other countries during the 20th century. The primary variant of the BAR series was the M1918, chambered for the .30-06 Springfield rifle cartridge and designed by John Browning in 1917 for the U.S. Expeditionary Corps in Europe as a replacement for the French-made Chauchat and M1909 Benét–Mercié machine guns that US forces had previously been issued.

The BAR was designed to be carried by infantrymen during an assault advance while supported by the sling over the shoulder, or to be fired from the hip.

Preview Toys City #68002 1/6 WWII Ardennen 1944 German Fallschirmjager outfit Set

continued from previous post

Important Note: This product is for military collectors & historic education purposes only, and it is NOT intended to glorify nor exploit the horrors and atrocities of war.

During World War II, the German Air Force (Luftwaffe) raised a variety of airborne light infantry (Fallschirmjäger) units. The Luftwaffe built up a division-sized unit of three Fallschirmjäger regiments plus supporting arms and air assets, known as the 7th Flieger Division.

After mid-1944, Fallschirmjäger were no longer trained as paratroops due to the strategic situation, and fought as infantrymen. Near the end of the war, the series of new Fallschirmjäger divisions extended to more than 12, with a reduction in quality in the later units, which, however still inflicted moderate losses on the advancing Allied troops.

In 1944, the Germans counterattack across the Ardennes and the Meuse valley but they were eventually thwarted after fierce battles. Their most advanced position was the “nose” of the salient, just in front of Dinant and the Meuse river. They had wanted to move northeast and reach Antwerp and the North Sea.

This is the soon-to-be-released Toys City 1/6 scale WWII Ardennen 1944 German Fallschirmjager outfit Set (Item#68002). The set will come with WWII German M38 Helmet, FJ uniform, FJ Trousers, German FJ Boots, FJ Y harness, MP44 Ammunition Pouch, MP44 Submachine Gun, MP44 magazine x 5, Gray protective gloves, Warm grey hood, Luftwaffe-Sumpfuster “Field Division Smock”, M42 Coat, Mess kit, water bottle, Breadbag Blue, Entrenching tool with Leather-like Carrier, Gas mask bag, German Army Paratrooper Badge.

Fancy a ride in a ZY Toys 1/6 scale WWII U.S. Army Military Motorcycle? Harley-Davidson?

Back in the early 1940s, the US Army asked Harley-Davidson to design a next-generation military motorcycle although the company was already producing the WLA, based on its traditional 45-degree V-twin engine. The army ordered a test batch of 1,000 XAs from Harley-Davidson. At the same time, the military also asked Indian to make a 750cc shaft-drive twin, and it came up with a 90-degree V-twin design. The idea was to put both new machines through their paces, and award a lucrative military contract to the winner.

Eventually, the army finished its testing, and decided that neither new bike would be built. Instead, they bought several thousand more Harley WLAs.

This is the soon-to-be-released (ETA February 2014) 1/6 scale WWII U.S. Army Military Motorcycle by ZY Toys made for 12-inch figures. It is quite nicely detailed with a number of moving parts. Great for pairing with your Hot Toys Captain America: First Avenger collectible figure (reviewed HERE, HERE and HERE) or for use with World War II U.S. Army 12-inch figures.
