We are pleased to follow up the release of our Battle of Bulge range with another variant our Sherman tank with set BB002 US 75mm Winter M4 Sherman Tank, this time from the 10th Armored Division. Sherman Tanks from the 10th Armored, specifically Combat Command B and the 21st Tank Battalion, were among the first to arrive at Bastogne and played a key role in the defense of the city earning a Presidential Unit Citation for their actions there. Throughout the encirclement they suffered the same conditions and hardships that are normally attributed only to the 101st Airborne. Though the 4th Armored eventually broke the encirclement just after Christmas, elements of the 10th Armored continued to fight in the area until January 18th. We have changed up the "winter camo" pattern on this tank from a pure whitewash to more of a quick and dirty striped painting pattern that we've seen photos of which represents a bit more of a rush in applying the pattern given the circumstances. Like BB001, it also features the advanced superlative weathering of mud and frost on the lower hull and track setup.
