Dragon is launching a new weapon set in its highly accurate and extremely realistic range of 1/6 scale famous miniature weapon systems. The newest set is an all-American collection consisting of an M2 mortar and M1 Garand rifle, weapons that featured prominently in WWII combat. The 60mm M2 mortar derived from the larger 81mm M1 mortar, and was designed to bridge the gap between the latter and hand grenades. The M2 mortar actually served in the Korean and Vietnam Wars as well as in WWII. Originally designed by the Frenchman Edgar Brandt, the first mortars were delivered to the US Army in January 1940. The M2 weighed 19.05kg and was capable of lobbing a shell out to a maximum range of 1815m.

The mortar model is accompanied by a .30-cal M2 Garand rifle, a weapon that General George S. Patton described as “the greatest battle implement ever devised.” It was the first semi-automatic rifle to equip an army in the world when it officially entered American service in 1936. Used by US Army and Marine Corps troops in WWII and Korea, it had a maximum effective range of 402m and was fed from an 8-round internal clip. Both the mortar and rifle models are ready for immediate assembly, with their parts separation mimicking those of the original weapons. They are fully detailed and components can disassemble just like the real thing. For those modelers who have a penchant for famous American military weapons, this set offers double appeal!
