October War: Jordanian M52 Self-Propelled Howitzer Battery

A new addition to the October War project is this battery of Jordanian M52 self-propelled howitzers. The M52 was an American design that entered service after the Korean War but was replaced by the M109 prior to Vietnam. The only other users I am aware of are Turkey and Jordan, with the Jordanian vehicles seeing action in the Six Day War and presumably with the 3rd Armoured Division in the Jordanians limited participation in the October War.

Surprisingly given the plethora of manufacturers producing no end of obscure AFV's, many of which have never seen action, I have only found one manufacturer that produces the M52 in 6mm and that was Irregular Miniatures. Quality wise it is not up to the standard of GHQ which I am using for the bulk of the project, but it's the only horse in town so I purchased six to form a battery.

Painting Target: 494/1000
