One of the most famous and recognizable weapons used by British forces during WWII was the Bren Gun, a light machine gun of .303 caliber. Dragon is offering a 1/6 scale plastic kit of this famous and effective weapon that originated from a Czech design known as the ZB vz.26. The name Bren is derived from the city of Brno where it was originally produced. Specific British modifications included a curved magazine for the British .303 cartridge as well as a flash suppressor on the muzzle. The gas-operated weapon could achieve a rate of fire of 480-540 rounds per minute with an effective range of 550m. It was ideally operated by a crew of two (a gunner and loader) but in combat it was often fired by just one soldier on its integral bipod.

Dragon’s model Bren Gun is fully detailed in 1/6 scale. Such is the level of detail that even bullets inside the magazine are molded in place by slide molds. However, what sets this British light machine gun apart is the inclusion of an accompanying tripod, which although rarely seen in combat, offers model-makers something unique. This tripod allowed the weapon to be used in an anti-aircraft role, or it could alternatively be configured for sustained fire against ground targets. The versatile tripod in the kit permits modelers to depict either role. The weapon also comes complete with a carrying case containing extra 30-round magazines. This Bren Gun and tripod mount can be displayed as a stand alone item, or it could easily be combined with a suitable British or Commonwealth figure.
