Tamiya has bundled ICM's AHN truck with their Flak37 3.7cm gun, and also added some cargo for the truck plus figures.
The AHN truck was a French-designed vehicle that was taken on and produced after French surrender to Nazi Germany in 1940. Around 4,000 were manufactured between 1941 and 1944, and served a valuable role on varied fronts, with excellent mobility proving a benefit for its troops.

This 1/35 scale model pairs parts from two manufactures. The truck parts are made by ICM and the included Flak 37 anti-aircraft gun parts, figures and accessories are made by Tamiya.

well, if it ever comes time to build such a combo, I'll be using what already is in the stash.

I'm with vettejack on this one, I've got too much already, though the truck is interesting. ICM makes some nice softskins, don't care much for some of their armour though.

Depending on the price (living in Japan Tamiya is more affordable for me) I may get this; I can probably live with the Flak and some help from the spares box.

So, Tamiya just released it without changing the wheels (that are for a 2 ton AHS) or the planking in the cargo bay? (That are 72th scale) That's a pitty. I'll stil have to make those wheels myself....

Looks like an interesting combo. So it has some shortcomings,, what kit doesn't? With some creativity and AM/spares box parts, you could make a fine dio spanning about anything from Normandy to North Africa. Gonna add it to my wish list.

Tamiya have been reboxing kits for the Japanese market more than 40 years. The only reason it's become well known outside Japan in recent years is because the Internet allows us to see (and therefore order) their domestic releases. They do it because it makes it easier for the local market to obtain overseas kits - importing into Japan is not always straightforward so companies like Italeri have long had arrangements with Tamiya to rebox kits - sometimes Tamiya add extra sprues and sometimes they don't. Remember also that nearly 90% of Tamiya's sales are to their own domestic market - international exports only account for a small proportion of their sales. Regards, John
