HobbyBoss 1:35 GMC Bofors 40mm Gun


The U.S. Army cargo truck GMC CCKW was produced from 1941 until 1945 and saw service in the Second World War and the Korean War. The US Army needed a transport vehile that would be easy to manufacture and capable of being transported by the Navy. The GMC - General Motors Truck Company - won the contract in 1941 and by the end of the war over 562 thousand vehicles were produced.

Apart from its function as a transport vehicle, the GMC CCKW was also used for food and ammunition resupply and as a medical evacuation vehicle. The GMC CCKW 353 equipped with the Bofors 40 mm gun was a French version of the vehicle used almost exclusively by the Free French Army. It also saw service in Algeria and Indochina.
