Italeri 1/35 M32 Recovery Vehicle 6547


The Armored Recovery Vehicles (ARV) played a vital role during World War II, and the American M-32 ARV, featured in Italeri's 1/35 model kit, was no exception. Built on the chassis of the well-known Sherman A-4 medium tank, this specialized vehicle was a key asset for the U.S. Army in the European Theater of Operations.
The M-32 ARV was designed to recover and repair armored fighting vehicles damaged in battle. Its unique superstructure allowed it to lift and tow damaged tanks, making it an essential tool for maintaining the armored forces on the front lines. Loaded with a comprehensive set of repairing tools and spare parts, the M-32 served as a mobile armored workshop, capable of performing a wide range of repairs, including engine replacements.
After World War II, the M-32 continued its service, playing a crucial role in the Korean War and remaining in use by various countries until the 1990s. Its longevity and adaptability made it a versatile asset for military operations, and this model kit allows you to delve into the history and significance of this remarkable vehicle.
