Airfix Catalogue description:

With all the appearance of an armoured chariot, the American-built Grant tank joined the British 8th Army in North Africa in 1942 and for the first time the German Panzer IV units found themselves matched in both firepower and armour. The Grant was one of the few multi-turreted tanks to see successful combat in the war. This famous fighting vehicle in the 1:32nd scale AFV series incorporates all the detail of the real machine. Elevating guns and revolving turrets, flexible tracks and a tank commander are all included in this kit of over 175 parts. - Taken from the 13th edition catalogue (1976)
