High level of physical activity in military operations makes every soldier need a serious amount of water.This need increases in hot climates, but never disappears even in cold climates. The canteen provides the vital link between the unit's water supply and the soldier on the move. So the canteen is a indispensable personal gear for a soldier.

BRAVO-6 released a new kit to quench our 1/35 soldiers' thirst.

The kit is in 1/35 scale, resin material and includes 23 pieces of water careers of different kinds.

E) 2 quart canteen with cover - 3 pieces
F) 2 quart plastic canteen - 2 pieces in different types
G) 1 quart canteen inside M1956 E-tool cover - 1 piece
H) 2 quart collapsable film bladder - 3 pieces in different types
I) 5 quart collapsable film bladder

The kit also includes 2 U.S. Military carabiner rings for canteen attachment.

Highs: Crisp details and nice cast. All canteens used by US soldiers during Nam period are added to the kit.
