Their ability to cross water and land made them invaluable in the island hopping campaign in the Pacific. They were also used in Europe in the Rhine crossings and in Northern Italy. Various types were produced, Italeri have chosen the LVT-4 with rear ramp which allowed easy loading of troops, cargo, small vehicles and artillery. This mark was built in greater numbers than other wartime LVTs, of over 8000 produced 6000 went to the US Army, 500 to America’s allies – mostly Britain – and the remainder went to the US Marine Corps.
