includes one M42 (twin 40mm), one British head sprue to represent Jordanian crew for Fate Of A Nation & one America head sprue to represent American crew for Tour Of Duty.
The experience of the Korean War led US Army officials to begin the phasing out of the M24 Chaffee in favour of designs based around the more modern M41 Walker Bulldog. Included in the M24 family of vehicles was the M19 GMC.

|Developed towards the end of the Second World War, the M19 was armed with two of the highly effective 40mm Bofors anti-aircraft guns mounted in an open-topped turret capable of traversing 360º.|
With each gun capable of firing 120 rounds per minute, the 40mm rounds of the M2A1 Bofors proved devastating against both unarmoured ground targets and massed infantry attacks. The M42 known as the Duster to American forces serving in Vietnam also saw service during the Six-Day War with the Jordanian Army.

|The M42 (Twin 40mm) in Fate Of A Nation|
Some excellent tank designs have successfully utilised wider tracks, allowing them to cross almost any terrain.
If a vehicle with Wide Tracks becomes Bogged Down while attempting to cross Rough Terrain, roll again. On a roll of 4+ the vehicle immediately frees itself and continues moving.
|Anti-Aircraft: Who Can Shoot|
Shooting at aircraft requires a special anti-aircraft mounting to allow the weapon to shoot at high angles and rotate rapidly to track fast-moving aircraft.
Only weapons with the Anti-aircraft, Heavy Anti-aircraft, or Self-defence Anti-aircraft attribute can fire at Aircraft. Anti-aircraft weapons that are still being towed by or carried as Passengers in Transport vehicles cannot shoot at Aircraft.
Anti-aircraft weapons must have a Line of Sight and be within Range to shoot at Aircraft.
Any teams that shoot at Aircraft can’t move At the Double, Dig In, Shoot or Assault in their next turn.
Any weapons (other than Self-defence Anti-aircraft weapons) that shoot at Aircraft cannot conduct Defensive Fire if assaulted later in this turn.
