… And Thank You, for Your Support!

Sometimes, a weapon is so big and cumbersome that just getting it up and into position isn’t enough to make it work. Not everything is just point and shoot, and this applied ever-so-truly to early tactical rocket systems. (What? What did YOU think I was talking about?) A perfect example of this was the US Army’s Corporal missile system. It needed a tonne of supporting vehicles to make it work. Thus, when Dinky made their No. 666 Corporal Launcher, they decided to follow real life and also made a support vehicle for it. Thus was born the Dinky No. 667 Missile Servicing Platform Vehicle, a cherry picker-type servicing truck. Check out this lesser known piece of the Corporal system on the Military Dinky Toys page!
