Syrian Army T-55A Main Battle Tank (435). This listing is for 1x King and Country IDF036-1 "Syrian Army T-55A Main Battle Tank (435)" 1/30 Tank. The T-55 was a relatively simple and robust tank that did not require a high level of training or education in its tank crews. Many thousands of these vehicles were exported by the Soviets and found their way into the armour inventories of many'third-world countries' including Syria.
Once in Syrian hands, the original Soviet-applied olive drab paint scheme was over-sprayed with patches of sand and grey camouflage paint before, in some cases, having Arabic slogans and tank numbers painted on the turret. IDF036-1 is numbered'435' in Arab numerals along with the hand-painted exhortation, "Death To Israel". The model itself also includes a Syrian Army tank commander figure. Figures are 1:30 scale (humans approx 60mm tall), hand-painted in white non-lead metal.For 20+ years, we have been helping fellow toy soldier and military collectors, modelers, and hobbyists in the Greater Boston Area.
