guys
the us army used the mgm-32a entac (french anti tank missile )for a short time before getting tow missile system
it was mounted on the m151 jeep,does anyone have images or links showing it on m151 jeep
all i can come across is it mounted on french m201 (licenced willi jeep)

picture

that picture doesnt appear to be showing, the image is on wiki page
was it mounted on m151 in 2 by 2 configuration like m201 version?
have a heroic and ross 1/300 m201 entac combination ,could have worked if us army had mounted some on m38 jeeps
how effective would it have been v t-55 or t-62?

If Wiki's 650mm penetration rating of RHA is correct, quite deadly, even from the front.

Only chance I think those tanks have are for the following to occur: fail to launch or guide properly to the target, operator miss at the target, acute angle strike resulting in the warhead not detonating, or hitting some sort of stowage/light bracket/other which skews the molten metal jet aside, resulting in no, or inadequate armor penetration.

Otherwise, looks like one shot, one kill vs. those, if you can get it on target.

Sorry, don't have any pics to share.

I usually do a Google Images search for such stuff, with several tries and terms, for best results. Sometimes that works. Best of luck with your search.

Would love some of these, as well as other early ATGMs on vehicles for NATO, in 1/144th and 1/100th scales.

I'd also like some ground mounts too.
