Thanks Alan as this is a must for any armor collection.

Was this primarily used in British service?

Morning Jeff,

The Mk II came into service very late in the war. I've only just bought this one so further research is needed, but yes is the answer to your question. Information is sketchy but I believe at least a couple made it to Germany before wars' end. It may have been issues to Commonwealth units but I have no data on that possibility at the moment and it's likely to have found its way elsewhere post war but again more research would be needed.

If anyone has additional information they could add in I'd be interest in that.

Cheers

Al

I'll go through my books to see if I have some additional information about the vehicle and it's use.
If anyone is interested, I still have the full resin kit of the Sherman ARV Mk.II for sale since it has to leave to make room.

Gr,
Marcel

Thanks Marcel,

Allied-Axis provides excellent reference pis and general data but lacks any mention of units or deployment.

Cheers

Al
