Belgium ACG-1 Tank

Next item off the paint table is the little known Belgium Army ACG-1 Tank. The Belgians had 12 of these tanks in service for the Battle of Belgium. The ACG-1 has three crew (commander, gunner, driver) and sports a 47mm main gun and a co-axial HMG. The armour is 25mm thick, and the tanks top speed is 42 km/h. One on One the ACG-1 was more than a match for any combat tank fielded by the Germans. Belgium tactical thinking at the time preferred combat deployment of anti-tank guns over combat tanks, thus the lack of ACG-1 numbers. This model is 15mm from Quick Reaction Force.

Looks like a lot of work went into that tank

Cool, like the early war stuff

One of the few French tanks to have a two-man turret (AMC 35 in their service), probably would have made a huge difference to the Battle of France had they not been so silly about it.

Very nice model. Early war has such style.
