Nearly 6 different versions (from Mk1 to Mk6) were produced during and after the Second World War, and the Mk4 model was the most manufactured. Widely used during the Battle of Normandy to transport men, food and equipment, the Landing Craft Tank also serves under the American flag. At the beginning of World War II, when France fell to Nazi Germany, Britain realized that the war against Adolf Hitler would have to be an amphibious war, since the ports of France were no longer available for an assault against the Third Reich.
If Britain was to counterattack the Nazis, they would have to do it the hard way-putting ashore large groups of men under heavy opposition. As a solution, the British came up with three new types of landing craft to meet this need. The Landing Craft Tank (LCT), Landing Craft, Tank (LCT), and Landing Craft, Infantry (LCI).This item is in the category "Collectibles\Militaria\WW II (1939-45)\Original Period Items\Great Britain\Personal, Field Gear".
