USMC Light Armoured Battalion

The last unit of my US Marines for the 1991 Gulf War is tooled up with a variety of  vehicles of the LAV series.  These Canadian built wonders are heavily based on the Swiss Mowag Piranha design which dates back to the 70s.  All GHQ models - as are the infantry.
The three rifle companies have LAV-25 - armed with the 25mm Bushmaster cannon.
