Roco Artillery

Self-propelled artillery takes a huge number of supply vehicles.

Artillery also needs communication vehicles and command vehicles.

A group of M577s fit together as the fire direction center.

Each M578 vehicle tows and M10 ammo trailer.

This is one of my modern US Army artillery battalions. Roco Minitanks make up all the vehicles in this collection.

good to see the trucks are not just loaded to the top.
As in all the modellers who have to have artillery shells loaded to the brim so it would be 12 tonnes of load
etc and the wheels and axles still just sitting there not in three pieces at least. A tonne of bricks and a tonne of feathers one takes one truck the other may take half a dozen etc.
always like the M577
and all the Warsaw Pact
have put them on my e-bay etc list

cheers karcuss

Yes, not every truck should be filled to the brim. Ammo, fuel, and canned food is really heavy. I like the supply vehicles.
