Includes three 106mm Recoiless guns and crew, three six-hole large plastic bases, two plastic base insert sprues and three resin sandbag strips.
Jordanian infantry battalions and brigades had anti-tank platoons equipped with American M40 106mm recoilless guns which were more than capable of knocking out any Israeli tank in the field.
The weapon was aimed with the aid of a .50 cal spotting rifle fixed to the top of the barrel. When fired, the trajectory of the round from the spotting rifle was nearly identical to that of the 106mm round. When the spotting round impacted a potential target it gave off a small puff of smoke; allowing the crew to make the any required adjustments before properly engaging the target.
