The Universal Carrier, or Bren carrier as it became popularly known, was just that a multi-purpose, tracked and armored vehicle that filled a whole variety of roles with all British and Commonwealth troops in every theater of World War II.
Well-loved by the men they supported, they were used to ferry troops up to the frontline, to evacuate wounded, bring up supplies and ammunition and to conduct liaison and patrols. With some 113,000 units built in the UK and abroad, it was the most produced armored fighting vehicle in history.
Universal Carriers gave terrific service for British and Allied forces throughout the war and also saw good use in the Soviet army. No self-respecting British Commonwealth commander would eschew these trusty carriers to back up his stoic Tommies
Our plastic carrier kit allows you to chose whether to build it as a Mk I or Mk II version as it contains parts for both!
This product is supplied unassembled and unpainted. Glue and paints not included.
Recreate World War II combat on a tabletop using dice, model troops, tanks and the rules constructed by Bolt Action against one or more opponents.
Each opposing side will also require painted model troops, representing the soldiers, guns and tanks of your chosen armies.
Tabletop encounters take place according to twelve closely defined battle scenarios that explain how forces are deployed and how victory is achieved.
All that remains is for players to pit their wits against each other as they enact just one small part of one of the greatest conflicts in history—World War II.
Build, paint and play! The construction and painting of the models and watching them come to life are just as much fun as the game itself!
