The tank was developed during World War I to help defeat the bloody stalemate of trench warfare of the Western Front. The Renault FT was a light tank to be used in a breakthrough and exploitation role and was equipped with either a howitzer or machine gun. It’s two-man crew consisted of a driver and tank commander, who doubled as the tank’s gunner. Over 3000 FTs were built in France during World War I where it was successfully used by both French and American armored forces.
A copy of the FT was manufactured in the USA under license and was standardized as the M1917. The American verson can be easily distinguished by the location of the muffler to the left side of the hull, whereas the original French version had the muffler located on the right.
The Renault FT has the distinction of setting the pattern for future tank devlopment: fully tracked vehicle with engine located in the rear, and a single fully-rotating turret.

The M1 40mm Anti-Aircraft cannon (referred to as the “Bofors” after its Swedish designer) was the US military’s most effective medium range automatic anti-aircraft gun of World War II. While it was intended for anti-aircaft use, there are plenty of documented cases where it’s awesome firepower was leveled at targets on the ground.

The Flak 36 8.8cm Anti-Aircraft Cannon, popularly known as the “88,” was one of Germany’s most lethal weapons of World War II. Originally designed for high-altitude anti-aircraft fire, the deadly effects of the gun’s high velocity shells versus ground targets, armored vehicles in particular, and became a thing of legend. The “88″ was typically set up on a cruciform mount for anti-aircraft defense, but the same gun/mount combination was often “dug in” to deep pits for anti-tank/anti-personnel role.

Today we’re releasing two new modern military kits based on the 1993 Battle of Mogadishu (aka the real events that inspired “Black Hawk Down”). For these kits we produced a limited amount of US Army Ranger minifigs with wrap-around digital printed bodies and pad-printed helmets. This weekend only, we are offering up our few extra figures as part of a special bonus pack which combines the new “Task Force Ranger” M35a2 Truck and M1025 HMMWV kits, plus three additional US Army Ranger figures. This special officer is over on Sunday night at midnight, or when all of the bonus packs are gone!
M35A2 Truck – Task Force Ranger with 1 US Army Ranger minifigure.
M1025 – Task Force Ranger with two US Army Rangers.
We put these kits together in coincidence with the Battle of Mogadishu diorama we will be revealing at World War Brick 2014 and on display at select additional fan events afterwards.
