Team Yankee – WWIII Miniatures Game – US M48 Chaparral SAM Platoon (TUBX09)


Out of stock


includes four M48 Chaparral SAM launchers, one unit card & one decal sheet.

The M48 Chaparral is a tried and tested surface- to-air missile (SAM) weapons system that first entered service with the US Army in 1969. This SAM system fires MIM-72G Chaparral missiles (based on the AIM-9 Sidewinder air to-air missile) which use an infra-red seeker to lock on to the hot exhaust of an aircraft.

The system is fired manually by the operator visually tracking the target, aiming the missile in the general direction, and waiting for the missile seekers to lock on to the target.
