The M109 was the medium variant of a U.S. program to adopt a common chassis for its self-propelled artillery units. The light version, the M108 Howitzer, was phased out during the Vietnam War, but many were rebuilt as M109s.
The M109 saw its combat debut in Vietnam. Israel used the M109 against Egypt in the 1973 Yom Kippur War and in the 1982 and 2006 Lebanon Wars. Iran used the M109 in the Iran–Iraq War in the 1980s. The M109 saw service with the British, Egyptian and Saudi Arabian Armies in the 1991 Gulf War. The M109 also saw service with the U.S. Army in the Gulf War, as well as in the Iraq War from 2003–2011.
This kit is a 2018 rebox, updated with new parts. The sprues are made from a light grey plastic and there are decals for two vehicles. The kit has 160 parts. The instruction booklet is very nice being really easy to follow.
There’s a reasonable level of detail on this kit. I’m more used to 1/35 scale so it’s difficult for me to fairly judge.
The kit comes with decals for two vehicles
I’ll be building this kit soon and will keep you updated on my progress.
