Thread: Tanks at Korea

  1. #1

    Default Tanks at Korea

    Hello Peoples,

    i´m brand new here, and i was reading a lot the last time here. It´s a very interesting side!!

    Now, meaby you can help me. I´m interested in all Tanks at Korean War ( US & USMC ) cause i try to buildt, the important types, as remote controled Models ( Scale 1:16 )

    Also, i have two books:
    - Korean War 1950-53, Concord
    - ARMOR in Korea, Squadron

    Here are my first three Korea Models

    M4

    Ok, i know it´s an 76mm, not an 105mm, but this was one of my first tankmodell also.







    M26

    The Pershing is not finish yet. I have to put all the little things around cans, helmets, some stuff like this

    Wow, those are good.

    The Soviets supplied the N. Koreans with T-34/85s, and the Americans supplied the S. Koreans with M-24 Chaffees, M-26 Pershings and M-46Pattons, as well as the M-8 Greyhounds. The English supplied the S. Koreans with Curchill VIIs, Centurions, Cromwell A27Ms, and Comet A34s. The Canadians sent the M10 Achilles 17-pounder self-propelled gun, but they were replaced by the Sherman.

    Too lazy to find more...

    Nice models, but for the Sherman, I think you mean it's a 75mm (which was pretty much gone by the Korean War), and not a 76mm HVSS model...

    Also, the first US tank deployed was the light M-24 Chaffee. They initially battled the T-34 and it did not go well...

    Actually, the Americans didn't supply the S. Koreans with any tanks (prior to hostilities in 1950) at all as far as I can tell. Neither did anyone else, though they may have had some left over Japanese tinboxes..

    They also had few anti-tank weapons and little in the way of artillery...

    I agree that your models are excellent! You can find a tank in this movie:

    Forgotten: Korean War DVD

    It is an "open turrent" WWII " tank destroyer" tank, but for the first year or two of the Korean War, especially, they were using materiel left over from World War II.

    I have yet to see the film. I do know that the use of tank destroyers in Korea by the US was fairly limited as most TDs had shortcomings and were replaced with tanks such as the M46/47/48 series. The M-36 "Slugger" or Jackson (the official name) was used to some extent. Basically because it began to cross the line between what was a true (U.S.) tank destroyer and a tank and its 90mm gun would have been effective against any T-34 or other tank the Chinese or North Koreans could field...

    The best tank in Korea:
    It is nice to have big heavy tanks, it is even nicer not to need them

    Define "best tank." While I think the Centurion is magnificent, there were few tank battles and with the exception of the Cent's excellent performance in mountainous terrain, it is difficult to discern much between the antitank performance of the Cent and the M-46 Patton. I think one could argue that for the actual fighting where tanks were used mostly for infantry support, the M-4 Sherman with its three machine-guns and a 75mm gun firing an excellent HE shell, might have been ideal against infantry with few antitank weapons. I believe there were some deployed to Korea with the short 75, the majority were M-4A3E8 (HVSS) with the 76mm though, which tended to out match the T-34/85...


    Some of the less common 75mm-armed Shermans in Korea also armed with flamethrowers...

    Chaffees.... somehow they look like US "panzer IIIs in Korea" (with the exception of the upgunning race)

    Every tank has its "comfort zone". the Centurion hilly dificult area where it could "outmanouvre" or outpower others. M46 was somehow better armoured in the hull, no?

    I wonder whether the 90mm Centurion gun had that bad a HE shot?
    It is nice to have big heavy tanks, it is even nicer not to need them
