The Ordnance Quick Firing 13 Pounder (weight refers to the weight of the shell) was developed as a light, rapid-firing artillery piece for use by British and Commonwealth cavalry. During World War One, the 13 pounder saw service on all fronts and was widely praised for it’s high mobility and lethal effectiveness. However, once the mobility of open warfare gave way to static trench lines, the QF 13 Pounder would eventually be phased out in favor of the more powerful 18 pounder.
The QF 13 Pounder has the following features:

The M10 Wolverine was main US Tank Destroyer in World War II and participated in the North Africa campaign, invasion of Italy, the liberation of France and the Low Counties, as well as the final push into Nazi Germany. Powered by twin diesels, it was based on the same chassis used by the M4A2 Sherman, but traded in armor protection for speed and better armament. Designed to hunt tanks, it packed a powerful 3″ naval gun that was effective against German armor until the end of the war.. Distinguishing features are it’s sloped hull armor, pentagonal open top turret, and steel-shod tracks.
The M10 Wolverine Allied Motorized Tank Destroyer kit has the following features:
