COBI D-Day Landing Craft
The COBI D-Day Landing Craft allows fans of blocks to reenact the famous day on which thousands of Allied soldiers landed across five beaches along France’s Normandy coast. The set includes a US Army soldier with an M1 rifle and a sailor equipped with a Thomson submachine gun.
Landing crafts are small naval vessels used primarily to deploy troops, equipment, and vehicles from ship to shore for offensive operations. Allied forces employed a variety of landing craft on the D-Day invasion of June 6, 1944.
One type of landing craft was the LCVP, more commonly known as the Higgins boat. This shallow-draft barge-like vessel could ferry a platoon-sized complement of 36 men to shore. Another was the LCT (or landing craft, tank). This large vessel could carry up to four Sherman tanks. Some 900 of these were used in the Normandy invasion. Some of these were modified for close-in shore bombardment. They towed tubes loaded with rockets that fired them in salvos of 24.
COBI D-Day Airborne Division Set (2048)
With this COBI figure block set, you can recreate the battles of American paratroopers who took part in D-Day, Operation Market Garden, landing in Sicily and liberating Italy and Western Europe. This block kit features figurines depicting members of the elite 101st Airborne Division (Screaming Eagles), with their recognizable emblem painted on the shoulders. One soldier wears a new uniform color and is equipped with a parachute backpack and an M1 rifle, while another wears a Ranger hat and carries a Bazooka.
The figure sets are complemented by the model of a Sherman M4A3E2 “Jumbo”, which served in the Ardennes offensive in winter 1944 and was nicknamed the “Cobra King”. It features opening hatches, access to the block engine, moving wheels and tracks, movable turret and barrel and characteristic graffiti, reproduced using pad-printing. The tank is a perfect companion for other COBI WWII military vehicles. The set is made of high-quality European bricks, fully compatible with LEGO.
