Product Description:

Publisher Description:

The landing craft, vehicle, personnel (LCVP) or Higgins boat was a landing craft used extensively in amphibious landings in World War II. The craft was designed by Andrew Higgins based on boats made for operating in swamps and marshes. More than 23,358 were built, by Higgins Industries and licensees.

Satisfactory in most respects, the boat's major drawback appeared to be that equipment had to be unloaded, and men disembarked, over the sides, thus exposing them to enemy fire in combat situations and making unloading time consuming and complex.

The LCVP had two machine gun positions at the bow.

The Higgins boat was used for many amphibious landings, including Operation Overlord on D-Day in Nazi German-occupied Normandy, and previously Operation Torch in North Africa, the Allied invasion of Sicily, Operation Shingle and Operation Avalanche in Italy, Operation Dragoon, as well as in the Pacific Theatre at the Battle of Guadalcanal, the Battle of Tarawa, the Battle of the Philippines, the Battle of Iwo Jima and the Battle of Okinawa.

Category Description for World War II Historical Series:

The World War II set features tanks, aircraft, ships, and other vehicles of both American and German sides of combat. Each set includes one or more characters which match the theme and ranking of the vehicle. Also available are figure sets featuring a variety of uniformed men with weapons.

Category Description for COBI Blocks Building Sets:

Including WWI, WWII, the Vietnam War, and more, these military vehicle replicas make unique toys and displays. The combat vehicle sets resemble specific tanks, jeeps, planes, and ships that have been used in both sides of war through modern history. The models are made of interlocking plastic bricks, pre-printed with logos and identification markings. The sets vary in difficulty level, and piece count and are great for interactive and imaginative play. COBI bricks are compatible with other brick construction brands. ~ Brianna

does the bargain version only apply to the box or to the item itself?
A shopper on Jun 9, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Bargain books have cosmetic damage. In the case of something like this Higgins Boat, there is most likely some sort of box damage. There will not be missing or damaged pieces.

Higgins boat
As an 8 year old I think that this toy was really fun. It is very realistic and great to build. A bit hard though, so think about if you are ready or not.
