Hobby Master 1:72 Ground Power Series HG4916
M8 HMC Diecast Model
US Army, European Theatre

1:72 Scale   Length   Width
M8 HMC   2.75"   1.25"

As part of American mechanized cavalry squadron equipment there were six M8 HMC assigned. The armored division's reconnaissance squadron Assault Gun Troop was equipped with eight M8 HMCs. Even though these units were designated Assault the M8 HMC was far from an assault weapon. The open top of the vehicle made the crew vulnerable to snipers, the armor was quite light and the 75mm wasn't powerful enough to be a tank destroyer. It was used for direct and/or indirect fire power supporting ground troops.

M8 HMC

Developed from the M5 Stuart light tank, the M8 Howitzer Motor Carriage entered production in September 1942.
