Historical Description[]

The M42 Duster anti-aircraft land vehicle was first produced in 1952 and entered U.S. Army service the following year. It sported twin 40mm Bofors autocannons mounted on a rotating turret. The vehicle's excellent suspension and high ground clearance allowed it to cross trenches, climb low obstacles, and even survive land mine explosions.

Though jet engines were expected to render direct-fire weapons like the Bofors cannons obsolete, the new HAWK missile air defense systems turned out to have trouble hitting close-range targets. Therefore, M42s were deployed to Vietnam to protect against low fliers. They proved ineffective at air defense but turned out to be devastating anti personnel weapons. Few Viet Cong ground troops who had faced a Duster once were willing to tangle with a second.
