Battlefront features the M42 for Fate of a Nation

Battlefront has a new featured article up for Fate of a Nation. This one's the M42 with twin 40mm guns.


From the article:

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.
