Cobi LCVP-Higgins Boat Model

Product Description
Maximum quantity available reached.

510 piece LCVP- Higgins Boat Model from Cobi. 

The landing craft, vehicle, personnel (LCVP) or Higgins boat was a landing craft used extensively in amphibious landings in World War II. The craft was designed by Andrew Higgins based on boats made for operating in swamps and marshes. More than 23,358 were built, by Higgins Industries and licensees.

Satisfactory in most respects, the boat's major drawback appeared to be that equipment had to be unloaded, and men disembarked, over the sides, thus exposing them to enemy fire in combat situations and making unloading time consuming and complex.

The LCVP had two machine gun positions at the bow.

The Higgins boat was used for many amphibious landings, including Operation Overlord on D-Day in Nazi German-occupied Normandy, and previously Operation Torch in North Africa, the Allied invasion of Sicily, Operation Shingle and Operation Avalanche in Italy, Operation Dragoon, as well as in the Pacific Theatre at the Battle of Guadalcanal, the Battle of Tarawa, the Battle of the Philippines, the Battle of Iwo Jima and the Battle of Okinawa.

This kit comes with three figures and movable parts. 

Compatible with other brands of building blocks, this is a wonderful gift for all lovers of military history. 

Not suitable for 0-3 year olds. COBI is a standard building system from the COBI Group and should not be confused with other building block properties including mini figures.
