The M1A2 SEP main battle tank is the latest variant of the U.S. M1 series main battle tanks. The M1A2 SEP MBTs serving in the Middle East and Afghanistan are usually fitted with the Tank Urban Survival Kit (TUSK). This TUSK kit includes add-on armor against chemical energy armor piercing projectiles, bulletproof steel and glass shields against rifle bullets outside the commander’s and the loader’s hatches, and a coaxial M2HB heavy machine gun mounted on the main gun. The combat capability of M1A2 SEP MBTs fitted with the TUSK kits has been greatly improved in urban combats.
This 1/35 scale U.S. Main Battle Tank M1A2 SEP Abrams TUSK I/TUSK II plastic model kit can be built to feature the TUSK I or TUSK II system. It includes movable suspension and workable track links. All crew hatches are realistic and movable. The main gun has real elevation and depression angles. The coaxial machine gun operation equipment can move together with the main gun. The commander’s M2HB machine gun and panoramic thermal imager are rotatable. Clear lights and periscopes are included. Precision PE parts are provided.
