The LCM (Landing Craft, Mechanized) was used in WWII to transport troops
and vehicles across the English Channel for the invasion of
Normandy. The LCM(3) variant was developed with a longer hull and
greater buoyancy in order to accommodate new heavier equipment such
as 30-ton tanks. It could also handle up to 30 tons of cargo or 60
troops. One of the most important roles played by the LCMs on D-Day was
the transport of advance engineer teams assigned the duty of demolishing
beach obstacles placed by the Germans.

Photo-etched machine gun brackets are also included. Markings are for
