When the United States entered the Second World War in 1941, the US armed forces were lacking any form of rocket in their arsenal. Designers came up with relatively simple but effective Rocket, HE, 4.5-in, M8. The rocket used only fins for stabilization meant they were inaccurate. This required a launcher to be developed which was the T27 Xylophone shown below.
Woah, I have never even heard of the US deploying rocket trucks in WWII before, let alone seen them in mini form. Trust Battlefront to do a mini though, particularly for obscure artillery.
Really nice paintjob on these - WWII US can sometimes come across as drab particularly in smaller scales, but your use of markings and weathering of the trucks really litfs them
Did they see much use? Were they effective over other artillery?
Two vehicles and fifteen crew is worth a fine 42 points
