The IDF M109A2 Doher from AFV Club is now in stock!!
Deployed in service by the U.S. Army in 1963, The M109 self propelled howitzer (SPH) underwent a series of changes and upgrades. The most notable change was the longer 39 caliber barrel. The IDF received their first 60 M109s in 1967, after years of boycotts and refusals. Various changes by the IDF included the addition of hull mounted crew rails on the sides and the modification of the muzzle brake to the Soltam.
Another latest in their line of M109s, the AFV Club IDF M109A2 Doher (Galloper) is the upgraded version of the IDF’s M109A2 Rochev, which saw combat in Lebanon in 1982 during Operation Peace Of Galilee. The kit consists of 680 parts, featuring crisp molded details on the all new side hull parts, and slide molded turret. Unique modifications to the IDF M109A2 Doher include an upgraded commander’s copula, and FN Hesrtal self defense general purpose machine guns (GPMGs) for both the commander and gunner on the turret. Featuring an early IDF type muzzle brake, turret front mounted stowage baskets and jerry cans just like the Rochev, the Doher features the new electrical main gun travel lock and an auxiliary power unit which are accurately represented in the kit. The kit also included a PE fret for replicating the stowage baskets and various parts on the hull, and a metal barrel. A set of Vinyl tracks comes with the kit and can be upgraded to a fully workable set of tracks if desired so by the scale modeller.
The kit includes an option for 3 IDF artillery units.
*Kit comes in original box, not a plastic bag.
