This model was originally released in 1983, and now gets a re-issue! It depicts the M247 Sergeant York, an ambitious self-propelled anti-aircraft system, which the US tried to develop quickly using already-existing parts. It was based upon the ageing M48 Patton tank chassis, and fitted with two 40mm L/70 and a fire control system, which was modified from that of the F-16 aircraft. The system consisted of a search radar, tracking radar, low power radar finder, IFF, signal processor, computer and microwave switching system. Unfortunately, the M247 was plagued by inconsistency and poor performance, and the plug was pulled on the project in the mid-1980s with only around 50 manufactured. Take this chance to recreate one of those tanks which never quite developed as its designers planned it.
