Landing Craft Assault (#LCA 718)
Availability: RETIRED & SOLD OUT
This British designed and built LCA actually made up the bulk of the landing craft used to put infantry on the beaches on D.Day itself. All of the British and Canadians used these little craft as well as some of the American forces. Did you know that the US Rangers landing at Pointe du Hoc were ferried in by British LCA's manned by Royal Navy crews? Our polystone and metal craft comes in typical two-tone British naval camouflage and is crewed by two Royal Navy matelots -- one Cox'n and one Bren Gunner.
