The Russian rations is a nice touch…

Nice. I figured these would be coming based on their Stryker w/Javelin (M1126 CROWS-J) that was recently released. It looks like sprue W from that kit, plus the paper rations.

A very welcome release. I was afraid to buy some ICV-J kits just for the containers.

Looks like the UK is using different crates for Javelins






After a party with a sixpack of Javelins.

Diorama idea?
P.S. the UK crate is for sale at 53 GBP.

This is groundbreaking and I’m glad that it includes four Javelins. I would have preferred more crates though.

I wouldn’t call it “groundbreaking”. It is just another plastic weapons/accessory set. Maybe the first of the Javelin, but not groundbreaking.

@HeavyArty It is groundbreaking in the plastic realm because this is the first molds of a modern ATGM outside of resin and 3-D printing. The last “modern US ATGM” in plastic was the 1/35 Dragon ATGM in their figure sets.

One can now arm modern 1/35 figures by buying something COTS and OOTB from a LHS (Local Hobby Shop…do we still have those around? :grinning:).

Meaning…one can take a plastic M72 LAW or AT-4 into “battle” with plastic Army men, but one sure can’t kill a tank unless one has a tank or ATGM IFV. This would really help with the “NOT a Tank Destroyer Campaign” starting this October.

A very welcomed kit, yes, but still not groundbreaking in my book.

Nice of AFV C for releasing this in plastic. I’ll be getting this even though my 3D prints look better. The extras look very nice like mentioned.

Yes James_Lee. I feel like the market would be large enough to have room for both resin and plastic versions. I am eager to get this one to compare with yours. My hope is that all of these efforts improve and advance our little hobby. All the best!

Now can someone produce a figure to fire it, I look forward to getting the set.
