At this year’s Toy Fair held in New York City, Unimax, the makers of the wildly popular Forces of Valor line of military replicas, confirmed that several new vessels can be expected over the course of 2014. Two new aircraft carriers are currently getting their keels laid for late year release, including the USS Kitty Hawk (CV-63) and USS Hornet (CV-8). Also, scheduled to sortie with their growing fleet is the battleship USS Arizona (BB-39), which should make port in June.
In the air, several new warplanes are in the FOV defense budget, including a 1:72 scale rendition of a Sikorsky CH-53E Super Stallion heavy lift helicopter, a Lockheed F-117A Nighthawk stealth fighter, US Navy F-35B Joint Strike Fighter, and, of course, the previously announced MV-22 Osprey, which will indeed feature tilting rotors and a drop down rear ramp.
The Company plans on taking a breather with their military vehicle range, although a handful of repaints are still on the docket.
