A selection of LVTs on this pic from the Wikipedia Sands of Iwo Jima page.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

My name is Commander William Riker.  Take me to your women.

That's interesting: I didn't know that those four rectangular shapes on the back of the rear-engined versions were pipes that stood up (see the LVT(A)-4 in the foreground). I thought they were just mushroom-style vent-covers.  :thumbsup:

Cheers Jon. :thumbsup:
Just to be clear, the 40mm guns were mounted on a pedestal in an open-topped LVT-4, not on a roof:

Yes Harold, I know, that's why I said closest to.  ;)

Yes Jon, I know you know, but I was making it clear for other people who may only have seen the side profile you posted...  ;) ;)

I think you'll find they are vent covers, mate, but that the (rear) engine hatch, to which they're attached, has been opened.
