New Release: M1A1 75mm Pack Howitzer

M1A1 75mm Pack Howitzer

Designed for quick movement, this 75mm gun could be broken down into several pieces to enable ease of transport by simple wheeled carriages or pack animals when traveling over rough terrain. As period artillery was difficult and heavy to move, this gun’s mobility meant it could be deployed in operations where heavier artillery was impossible to use, namely amphibious and airborne missions. It was even deployed with British gliders during Operation Market Garden in 1944.

Specifications:

  • Crew: 6
  • Production: 5,000
  • Range: 5 mi (9 km)

Features:

  • Fully posable gun with elevating barrel
  • Opening breech on cannon
  • Can be broken down for transport
  • 1/35th scale to match other Brickmania models

Building On the Past: Armistice Day

Building On the Past: Armistice Day - WWI US Soldier

The horror was over. On November 11th, 1918, the Great War ended.

At Brickmania, we like to note dates of historical significance. Across American history, the course of our nation was dramatically shifted by certain key military events such as Yorktown, Gettysburg, and Normandy. We often focus on the technical details of such events – the places, equipment, and numbers. Yet, there is a wealth of letters, journals, diaries from the soldiers in the trenches. The static nature of the Great War left future generations with detailed accounts of truces, terror, and brotherhood. Perhaps unknown at the time, these soldiers marked the end of one age and the beginning of another.

The age of mechanized war came suddenly and unexpectedly. These soldiers were the first to face barbed wire, machine guns, and poison gas. They were some of the first to hear airplanes over the battlefield and were the first to witness tanks as they crawled across no man’s land. Although no veterans of the Great War remain, their unique experiences on the Western Front can still be heard.

Today marks the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day, or Veterans Day in the United States. This day is also known as Poppy Day. Red poppies had a tendency to grow in the churned-up soil of no man’s land and became a worldwide symbol to honor veterans, a tradition that continues to this day. Today, you may see people wearing a red poppy accompanied by the following words:

Lest we forget.

If there is someone you’re remembering today, tell us their story in the comments.

M5A1 Stuart - World War II Light Tank

About the M5A1 Stuart – World War II Light Tank:

Another successful American tank design, the M5A1 Stuart was the result of extensive testing and refinement. The need for a reliable light tank became apparent to the US Army after the success of German blitzkrieg campaigns in 1939–40. As other European nations struggled to catch up with the German war machine, the United States began work in 1940 to replace the small M2 light tank.

The M5A1 was the second production model in the M5 family. Powered by dual Cadillac engines, this model began production around the time the United States entered the war in 1941. Much like the Sherman, the Stuart appeared in almost all theaters of the war. Armed with a 37mm gun, the Stuart was used primarily for reconnaissance and support, but it was used in combat against smaller Japanese tanks in the Pacific. Built in Detroit, Cadillac produced almost 7,000 Stuarts for the U.S. Army until June 1944 when it was replaced by the M24 Chaffee.

  • Crew: 4
  • Speed: 37 mph (60 km/h)
  • Range: 100 mi (161 km)
  • Engine: 2x Cadillac Series 42 V-8

Building On the Past: The Last Days of World War I – Meuse-Argonne Offensive

Building On the Past: The Last Days of World War I - Meuse-Argonne Offensive – Renault FT and Schneider C.A.

On the morning of September 26, 1918, 37 French and American divisions advanced into the Argonne Forest along the Meuse River. Few knew at the time, but this would be the last major offensive of the First World War.

The largest battle ever fought by the U.S. Army, this offensive included 1.5 million soldiers, 700 tanks, and over 500 aircraft. The 94th Aero Squadron, led by the famous racecar driver-turned-pilot Eddie Rickenbacker, engaged German Fokkers over the massive battlefield and witnessed the carnage from above. In watching his fellow servicemen move across the shell-torn no man’s land against the heavily fortified German positions, he wondered how they “did not go absolutely mad with terror”.

On the ground, Colonel George S. Patton’s tank brigade, which included almost 200 French-built Renault and Schneider tanks, led the way for American infantry. Combined with German antitank tactics, the horrid terrain made easy targets of the slow WWI tanks, rendering over two-thirds of them destroyed or broken down. But they achieved their objectives, pushing the Germans back to the Giselher defense line.

The offensive was one of the key actions that ended the war. By the time the offensive officially ended 47 days later on November 11th, 26,000 Americans had been killed in action with over 120,000 casualties, making the Meuse-Argonne Offensive the bloodiest battle in American history. Almost 15,000 American service members are buried at the Meuse-Argonne American Cemetery and Memorial near the village of Romagne-sous-Montfaucon, France.

New Release: F-4C Phantom II – Supersonic Jet Interceptor

F-4C Phantom II - Supersonic Jet Interceptor

About the F-4C Phantom II – Supersonic Jet Interceptor:

A veteran of the Vietnam War, The F-4C Phantom II was one of the first multi-role aircraft deployed by the U.S. military. Being the first to serve in three military branches (Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps), the F-4 first engaged Soviet-built MiGs over Vietnam in 1964, along with ground-based missiles fielded by the Vietcong.

International interest developed in the Phantom due to its impressive performance. Capable of speeds approaching Mach 2, the Phantom could be armed with 16,000 pounds of ordnance. Several aircraft were converted for reconnaissance purposes, equipped with cameras and other surveillance equipment. In 2014, modified Phantoms were used for remote-controlled training exercises, allowing new pilots to fly the aircraft from the ground.

Specifications:

  • Max Speed: 1,400 mph
  • Range: 1,700 mi
  • Engines: 2x General Electric J-79-GE-15 turbojet with afterburners
  • Armament: Various missiles and bombs
  • Crew: 2
  • Deployed: May 1963
