New Release: M4 Sherman Crab – Mine Flail Pack for M4 Sherman (BKM2184)
This add-on pack is designed to accompany the M4 Sherman (2018) kit.
About the M4 Sherman Crab – Mine Flail
Commonly referred to as a mine flail, the Sherman Crab Special Purpose Mine Flail Tank Tracked Support Vehicle had the ability to clear a path for troops while destroying anti-personnel mines. First tested in North Africa during WWII, the design featured more than 40 individual chains that rotated rapidly across two extended arms. While in motion, the flailing chains would activate hidden mines, causing them to detonate and leaving a clear path for the main supporting force. Though effective in certain situations, the Crab limited some of the more mobile aspects of the Sherman, such as turn radius and trench crossing, and it was not as effective across uneven terrain.
The Crab add-on pack for the M4 Sherman features a spinnable flail and fully posable arms that easily connect to the latest Brickmania M4 Sherman – Allied Medium Tank. Some conversion may be necessary if using an older Brickmania Sherman model.
All Brickmania model kits are made of new-condition LEGO bricks. This model comes disassembled and includes complete printed building instructions and comes packaged in a sealed box. This is a limited-edition kit and production may be discontinued at any time.
