Roden 1/144 Douglas C-133A with PGM-17 Thor IRBM
Model Number: 336
The Roden 1/144 Douglas C-133A with PGM-17 Thor IRBM from the plastic aircraft model kits range accurately recreates the real life modern US military aircraft. This model requires paint and glue to complete.
Mobile strategic aircraft complex consisting of C-133 aircraft and PGM-17 Thor missile. The main objective was to quickly deliver intermediate-range ballistic missiles (IRBM) by transport aircraft to remote points in other continents, placing missiles as close as possible to the borders of potential adversaries. From 1959 to 1963 missiles of this type were transported to Great Britain on C-133A aircraft. In October 1962, when humanity was on the brink of global nuclear conflict, placement of PGM-17 Thor at British bases was a key factor in forcing the Soviet Union to reverse its decision to deploy its missiles on the island of Cuba, in the immediate vicinity of US borders. After the de-escalation of political tensions in the world, all PGM-17 Thors based in the United Kingdom were returned to the United States by the same C-133A aircraft.
