New Release: BT-5 – Cavalry Tank

BT-5 - Cavalry Tank

About the BT-5 Cavalry Tank:

The designation BT stands for Bystrochodij Tankov, or “fast tank,” which was a new class of tank developed in the US as the M1931 Race Tank. Seeing as the US government was initially uninterested in the development, the original inventor, Walter J. Christe, struck a deal with the Soviet Union for the commision of agricultural tractors, which, once on Soviet soil, were converted to the original BT-1s at the Kharkov Komintern Locomotive Plant. The BT-5 variant entered service in 1933 with a redesigned turret similar to the T-26, but otherwise matched its predecessors in that it featured very little armor and relied heavily on speed as the tank’s main defensive tactic.

  • Speed: 55 km/h (39 mph)
  • Total Weight: 9,253 kg (20,400 lbs)

New Release: M48A3 Patton – Main Battle Tank

M48A3 Patton - Main Battle Tank

About the M48A3 Patton – Main Battle Tank:

Converted from earlier variations of the M48 in early 1963, the M48A3 Patton was deployed mainly to Vietnam. The A3 variant fixed the flammability issues of earlier versions by using a supercharged diesel engine rather than gasoline. Used throughout most of the war, the M48A3 was used mainly as infantry support and for maintaining defensive positions. As the US began to withdraw in 1970, most M48A3s were turned over to the South Vietnamese but were hardly used due to a lack of accessible parts.

Specifications:

  • Total Weight: 96,000 lbs (43,545 kg)
  • Main Armament: 3.5in (90mm) M41 cannon
  • Engine: 700 shp diesel
  • Crew: 4
  • Range: 80 mi (130 km)

Restock: M4 Sherman Crab – Mine Flail Pack for M4 Sherman (BKM2184)

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.

Restock: 8.8cm Flak 36 – Anti-Aircraft Anti-Tank Gun

8.8cm Flak 36 - Anti-Aircraft Anti-Tank Gun

About the 8.8 cm FlaK 36:

First created in 1934, the FlaK 18 or German 88 was developed in secret to avoid the restrictions of the Treaty of Versailles in 1919. The improved FlaK 36 followed soon after and became a favorite among German Army personnel because of its ability to slice through armor as far as 1,800 meters away. Though mostly used for air defense, the FlaK 36 saw some action as an anti-tank weapon as well, although its size and weight made it difficult to transport across uneven or soft terrain.

Later in the war, the FlaK 36 was mounted on railway cars and vehicles and was even used as the main weapon in the heavily armored German Tiger Tank.

Additional Information:
Brickmania’s latest FlaK 36 kit features new ambush camo and a traversable gun that rotates a full 360° and elevates to 90°.

Restock: M4 Sherman – Allied Medium Tank (2018)

M4 Sherman - Allied Medium Tank (2018)

About the M4 Sherman:

Perhaps the best known Allied tank during World War II, the M4 Sherman was designed to replace the M3 Lee. Named for the eccentric Union General William T. Sherman, the Sherman medium tank was mass produced to help offset better-armed German tanks such as the Tiger and Panther. The American war machine produced over 50,000 Sherman tanks between 1941 and 1945.

The Sherman chassis was used for several dozen different variants. Among these variants, several were specialized for mine clearance, rocket battery, or as a self-propelled howitzer. The standard M4 Sherman was equipped with a Continental R975 gasoline-powered engine and could achieve a top speed of 21 miles per hour. Stock Sherman examples were armed with two machine guns and a 75mm cannon, the Sherman could handle all but the heaviest German tanks. Although they struggled against German armor, the Allies found success in overwhelming the slower German tanks by often deploying five or more Sherman tanks against the same target.

The Sherman was also deployed during the Korean War but was eventually replaced by the M46 Patton.

Specifications:

  • Engine: Continental R975 C1 radial petrol
  • Speed: 21 mph (34 km/h)
  • Range 120 mi (193 km)
  • Crew: 5
  • Armament: 75mm main cannon, 2x 7.62mm machine guns
  • Radio: SCR 508

New Release: WWII Chinese Soldiers Communist – Sticker Pack

WWII Chinese Soldiers Communist - Sticker Pack

About the WWII Chinese Soldiers (Communist) – Sticker Pack:

During the period from 1937 to 1945, the long-running conflict between the Republic of China and the Communist Party of China paused briefly in the face of invasion by the Empire of Japan. However, the level of cooperation between the two forces was virtually non-existent and even as both held a “united” front against Japan, each army was in reality positioning itself to gain a territorial advantage in preparation for the coming conflict between one another. This sticker pack features artwork based on the uniforms worn by Chinese Communist forces during World War II.

Designed to capture a variety of historically accurate uniforms and accessories, Brickmania® sticker packs are an easy, inexpensive way to turn your own collection of minifigures into an effective fighting unit with multiple styles of vibrant uniforms. Designed, printed and packaged at the Brickmania HQ, these high quality stickers add a layer of detail to any MOC or individual figure at an unbeatable price.

New Release: WWII Russian Sapper

WWII Russian Sapper

About the WWII Russian Sapper:

Created after the German invasion of Russia in 1941, the Sapper Armies consisted of enlisted soldiers, as well as civilians, and were tasked with constructing defensive structures to help slow the German advance. Deemed incredibly effective, the sapper armies were instrumental in the Red Army’s victories at key turning points in World War II, including Leningrad, Moscow, and Stalingrad.

The Russian Sapper minfig features an SSh-40 helmet with scuff marks and texture rivets, and a texture printed SN-42 body armour over a fall amoeba camo artwork based off of the uniforms worn by the Soviet Union’s sapper army troops. All artwork was designed by Lando and printed at the Brickmania® HQ by our UV print team.
