|Cruising to Victory
While German forces had dangerous Tigers and Panthers prowling the battlefield, by the end of the conflict the British were fielding a capable answer: the Comet. With a hull based upon that of the Cromwell and a new, larger turret accomodating the Q.F. 77mm gun, it was a formidable proposition indeed. Comets took part in the March 1945 Allied crossing of the Rhine, providing vital infantry support fire; crews are said to have been happy with the balance of firepower, survivability and mobility it provided.
|★Left: Smoke dischargers and tow hooks accent the rear, as does the duct dubbed a “Normandy cowling.”
★Right: The two-part Normandy cowling allowed the gun to be locked at the rear of the Comet.
|★Left: Plenty of accessories are included to add an extra accent: shovel, bar, helmets and more.
★Right: The chassis is built up into an accurate box-like structure, with bulkheads boosting durability.
