Modelcollect has a new Nato M1001 MAN Tractor & BGM-109G Ground Launched Cruise Missile on the way
The GLCM, developed during the Cold War, carried only a W84 thermonuclear warhead -no conventional capability was provided. With a range of 20002500 kilometer, the missile was entirely subsonic. Therefore the flight time was well over two hours.

The transporter erector launchers (TEL) carried four BGM-109G missiles in their containers and ready for launch, and were towed by large 8x8 MAN trucks.

Only CAD drawings for this model have been shown for now, but it certainly looks detailed. The tubes and missiles are included, so as photoetched parts.

Well, I never thought we'd ever see this beast; I also note they now do their Pershing with a MAN tractor. I feel a couple of "Missiles in the Forest" dioramas coming on! Does anyone know of their availability in the UK?

Let me be the first to say: I wish it was in 35th scale.

Nice, I hope they bring out the other 3 versions too. Now if they put the Tractor and the Pershing missile and Launcher together, then we would have the kit for that was stationed in Germany.

Ronnie, they do now produce the MAN Tractor with the Pershing; see "Recent news" above; I think it's on the second page.

Cancel my last; it's on page 1, 3rd item down.
