Slot A goes into Tab B, Easy as One-Two-Three
The Marine crew of this 81mm mortar work fast to assemble their weapon. (Double click on the pictures to see them close up.)
The speedy assembly allows needed firepower for their buddies facing the forces of Imperial Japan. As the island hopping campaigns cut through the Pacific, the 81mm added quick, close fire support for the Leathernecks.
These are 28mm metal pieces from the Bolt Action Line by Warlord Games. They are the latest in my on going USMC project to paint a unit from every important conflict in which the Corps participated.
