Tony Clements, a keen photographer and friend of Warlord, has sent us these snaps of WW2 vehicles in action. We present them for your hobby inspiration…

Hobby Inspiration: US Armour in Action

Tony hails from Derby, not too far from (Warlord HQ). He makes it his mission to delve into history wherever he goes – always with a trusty camera on hand. He’s also a re-enactment fanatic. He recently sent us these fantastic photos of WW2 US vehicles in action.

Half-tracks were extensively used throughout WW2. US M3 half-tracks were intended for use with armoured divisions, but they quickly found many other uses.

Battle is joined – half-tracks deliver troops to the front.

This particular M36 is believed to have served at the Battle of the Bulge. During the War, the M36 was not known as the Jackson – this was a post-war affectation.

The M8 Armoured Car was dubbed the Greyhound for its favourable high speeds.

Easy Tiger! The restored M36 Jackson Tank Destroyer seeks out a target.

The M4 serves as an impromptu infantry mount.

We’ll hope for more from Tony’s travels soon.
