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.

Kit consists of 161 injection molded parts on 6 sprues, plus the hull. Photo-etched machine gun brackets are also included. Markings are for the US Navy 1944 Normandy Landings. Completed kit measures 17" long and
