Borgfeldt Canada Ltd.

This 1:35 scale kit recreates the M551 Sheridan Armored Reconnaissance/Airborne Assault Vehicle (AR/AAV). The M551 was designed as airdrop capable armor with wading capabilities. This was a key concept as the U.S. took on the role of global policeman post- WWII. With an aluminum hull and rolled steel turret, it weighed just 15 tons but had impressive firepower in the shape of the M81 152mm gun/launcher which was capable of firing standard rounds and MGM-51 Shillelagh missiles.

The M551 was in service with active units from 1968 to 1996, and saw action in the jungles of Vietnam.
