This set consists of a Saladin armoured car towing an ammunition limber and a 25 pounder field gun. The models are all finished in a dark military green, and the wheels are in a lighter olive green plastic with black treaded tyres. The armoured car has a rotatable gun turret and a spring-loaded firing mechanism for firing plastic shells and caps. The field gun has a similar firing mechanism, and a gun barrel with adjustable elevation. In addition, a traverse platform is slung under the trailing arms, and this may be detached and deployed to enable the gun to aimed easily even on rough ground.

This is a pleasingly solid set of models, somewhat larger than equivalent Dinky toys and with a good level of casting detail. The paintwork has light general play wear, but the set still looks good on display. The Saladin's turret and firing mechanism are rather stiff. There is no ammunition supplied, but matchsticks will probably do the trick!

This set was renumbered to 2170 in 1975, and discontinued in 1980.
