The Katana is a sort of poor man's MBT, exchanging the usual heavy main gun for a pair of lighter, fast firing cannons, less armour and more speed. It is a useful addition to the UCM and gives an interesting option to the heavier MBTs.
The model is a simple 2 parts, cast in the usual off white lightweight resin, nicely detailed and RRP £11 for three.
Here is a size comparison between the Katana, Tormentor, and a "modern" T72
Quick digression. The T72 is a Trumpeter display model, and is both detailed and reasonably priced if you buy them in bulk from the Far East. I would recommend anyone who is thinking of starting WW2 or Moderns \ Arab \ Israeli in 10/12mm to do some research as they also do a T54\55 and others and they work out cheaper than buying an inferior model from a traditional wargames manufacturer. Sadly the range is limited, so there is still plenty of scope for the more usual producers. I hope there will be a resurge in moderns using 12mm \ 1:144, hopefully to take advantage of 3D printing to master models that are detailed and accurate, as well as affordable.
