Hey Guys,

Working on the Dragon M3 Halftrack w/TCM-20 and wanted to know if it in fact was in service during the six day war? I've seen a lot of photos of it in battle but not positive those photos are from Yom Kippur war or the six day war.
Thanks for any reference you can supply.

AFAIK the TCM-20 version entered service after the Six Day War. Most of the photos I have of this variant are from the Yom Kippur war period, let me know if you're interested.

Thanks gents, that was my hunch as well. Will need to do some modifications on the kit to bring it up to early 70's spec.
Israel, I'm a huge fan of what you've shared via the IDF Light/Heavy Metal, if there is anything more specific to this AA half track I'd love to see it.
Thanks!

Cool pics. I love the one with the spare track over the front.
