Revell 00020 MGM-5 Corporal Missile & Launcher 1/35 Scale
Limited Edition Of 5000 Pieces Only
The Revell Classics Line is a limited re-issue of select model kits from the 1950s/60s or 70s. In order to ensure that this model kit resembles the original product as closely as possible, the packaging was made true-to-style using the previous original illustration as well as original decals. The construction manual in multiple languages contains detailed assembly instructions. This model kit was produced using the original mold that was manufactured more than 30 or 40 years ago. Insignificant deviations from the original model kit (formation of burrs or slightly imperfect fit) can be attributed to the fact that the mold was not used for a long period of time.
The MGM-5 Corporal developed in the USA was a surface-to-surface short-range missile that could be equipped with a nuclear warhead. With this or alternative warheads the weapon would be able to attack targets up to a distance of 140 km. In the event of war in Europe the Corporal would be used as a tactical nuclear weapon. The first artillery battalion with Corporal missiles was set up in 1955 (6 out of 12 American battalions were stationed in Europe). The Corporal weapon system remained in use until 1964.
