The M3A1 Medium Tank with cast hull is another variant of the M3 Medium tank family.

The main difference of this version is the correctly shaped cast upper hull, a feature which Mirage has reproduced correctly in this kit. The lower hull and suspension sprues in the box are identical to all released variants while the turret provided is the “Lee” version, the “Grant” being used by the British Forces.

The Mirage M3 medium tank itself has already been reviewed many times, so I will refer for more information and/or comments, to these pages :
