As a replacement for the M24, production started in 1951 on the new M41 Walker Bulldog. By 1953 the M24’s had been completely replaced. The M41 saw limited action in Korea but was very much in demand in Vietnam. In 1961 150 M41’s were delivered to the Japan Ground Self-Defense Force. Through out 1965 214 M41A3’s replaced the M24’s used by 5 Army of the Republic of Vietnam squadrons and were very effective against the ARVN T-54’s. In 1969 the M41’s began to be replaced by the M551 Sheridan.
Taiwan is the largest user of the M41 Walker Bulldog with 625 still in operation in 2016. Some estimates say 625 M41s while others say 675. Taiwan M41s have received several modifications over the years in an effort to keep them as up to date as possible. These modernizations consist of reactive armor better guns, new diesel engines, fire control systems, a modernized M32K1 gun and a new type of ammunition. Taiwan also has 200 M60 tanks and 365 M48 Pattons in its arsenal.
This Hobby Master 1/72 scale model is a replica of the M41A3 Bulldog tank of the Taiwan Marine Corps.
This model is a great addition to your diorama or armor collection.
