M-60 tanks on D-Day or another example of Lindberg detail and research

name the tank this D-Day LCT is carrying. Pretty sure it ain't a Sherman..
looks like an easy weekend build, just without the tank...

It's an M46 Patton, which considering that it bears Korean War markings is not far off. It's just not right for 6 June 1944.

There are wargaming vehicles avaliable in that scale, roughly 15mm I think. I have a few for the beastie, they aren't bad at all. It's been awhile since i've had them out to look at 'em, resin or metal, not to many pieces. Decent looking though. The Shermans actually come in differing versions consistent with actual Shermans, including a dozer tank. The brand has oodles of vehicles of differing types, trucks, tracks, etc, I think even figures. I even found decals.
Yep, this is it, Flames of War 15 mm.
Just put "15mm wwii miniatures" in your favorite browser and have at it.

The LCU is in 1/125 (from what I recall) so you would need either TT Gauge (1/120) model railroad items or as noted 15mm (1/121) scale.

They look about right sitting on the well deck.

There was a whole lengthy thread at one time on the topic of incorrect box art, kit extras, paint schemes etc, Like haveing a really early war messerschmidt in a dog fight with a late war mustang, or a late war messerschmidt attacking an early B-17 formation on the box art. Late war corsiar sold as Pappy Boyington's aircraft with black sheep markings.
