Patten


Roco Minitanks for the Pentomic Era.


An M47 Patton medium tank battalion.


Three companies of three platoons each.


Attached artillery.


Headquarters tanks.  The M47 was only used for a short time before it was taken out of service and replaced by the M48 series of tanks.  In my world they stayed in service with the US Army a bit longer...

It seems we both have a very Russian outlook on tank procurement...nothing gets thrown away...)

My vehicles can be traded for other vehicles or can be given away, but I almost never sell them. There are 7 for sale on Fidels Models website and those are the first I have offered for sale in years.

I up gunned my M47s with the spare M60 turret from the ROCO M60/M60A1 combos...)

Good work Don. The M47, M48 and M60 tank series have been used by many nations for decades. There are many different upgrades that were sold or proposed. Since I use mine as 1950's era US Army, no need to upgrade!

Yeah I've seen allot of them first hand, my collection philosophy is Russian "Quantity has a quality all it's own" and design philosophy is Israeli inspired....just up gun it and make it work!
