How many and what types of vehicles did Kelly's platoon have? From memory I am thinking a couple of halftracks, one standard and a T19 with 105mm and 2 or 3 jeeps.

2 jeeps, 1 x M3 with pole mounted .50cal, 1 x M19 with 105mm.

12 men plus Big Joe, Kelly and Crapgame.
2 jeeps- the radio jeep,Kelly's jeep with .30cal pole mount, M3 with mg's and Cowboy's 105mm halftrack. Mulligan's mortar battery helps too with fire support.
Don't forget Oddball's "edge", 3x76mm Shermans from the 321st.

And don't forget the M262 speaker and M18 turntable, though
I cannot imagine keeping a record playing without the stylus jumping around as your tank clambers along the railroad tracks- not to mention when the 76 cuts loose.

Maybe it was a wire recording?

12 men plus Big Joe, Kelly and Crapgame.

And the grave diggers, of course! Only realised recently that Mulligan was George Savalas, Telly's younger brother and Stavros in Kojak.

Sgt. Bellamy with the bridging equipment was Uncle Leo from Seinfeld

Legion 4 that company that makes some of the Kelly's Heros figures would be Warlord Games.
