I’m trying to finish out my M1 Abrams collection. I was wondering has anyone seen a US Marine Abrams with tusk 1 or tusk 2 Kit applied to it.
As I recall we have only used a portion of tusk 1 items and no tusk 2 items before all tanks where retired.
So side armour blocks, lower hull plate and crew protection ?
I have been trying to track that down, I think it was belly armor and crew protection only and no side armor or other items. As I also recall we had a different tc station that has not been modeled in 1/35 scale.
Gino posted this on the old site. “USMC tanks in A’stan used the belly armor, thermal sight on the TC’s .50 cal, and the Loader’s gun shields.”
Those are the correct TUSK parts that were used in A’stan. It appears that they all had standard CWS though, not the newer Stabilized CWS.
I don’t recall seeing a Marine tank with side armor.
