From the manufacturer's website:

Program 5 Monitors were used in Vietnam to provide U.S. riverine forces with accurate direct and indirect fire support. The 105-mm howitzer which was mounted inside the M49 turret was ideal because of its compact size and weight. The M49 was already in use on the LVTH-6 AMTRACK by the U.S. Marines and was considered a reliable weapon system. The howitzer has a special M546 antipersonnel (APERS) “beehive” shell that fires several thousand tiny flechettes (nails). Firing the “beehive” in the direct fire mode was quite deadly for any enemy troops hiding on the riverbanks.

An accurate and highly detailed limited edition replica model kit of the Converted WWII LCM Landing Craft used extensively during the Vietnam Conflict.
