Overview
-

The M16 Multiple Gun Motor Carriage (M16 MGMC) also known as M16 half-track, was a US self-propelled antiaircraft gun built during World War Two. The chassis of the half-rack armored personnel carrier was used to build various variants of self-propelled guns. They were tested on training grounds. Some of them were accepted for military service, series production and then they would see combat. These mainly included self-propelled antiaircraft guns armed with large-caliber 12.7 mm machine guns. In the Autumn of 1941, the first vehicles of this type were tested. The basic requirement of their design was to combine the half-track transporter chassis with a self-propelled revolving turret, the very same as the ones mounted on the bomber aircraft.

REVIEWS

The pages contain highly detailed line drawings of the vehicle, its sytems and various equipment carried. The sumptuous detail doesn't end there, as the vehicles chassis, suspension, transmission and White 160AX engine are also showcased in three-quarter views. The pages close with 1/72 and 1/48 scale plans, plus pull-out 1/35 and 1/16 versions - ideal for modelling projects including AFV Club's newly tooled 1/35 kit.
