This is a set of game pieces for the Zvezda 'Art of Tactic' game system. It consists of two Maxim M1910 heavy machine guns with two crew each. The maxim M1910 was a workhorse of the Russian and then the Red Armies from the late 19th century, and during the Second World War production was maintained and thousands were used, as it was still a very reliable if heavy weapon.
In our photograph we have shown the pieces separately, but they are actually intended to be mounted together as seen here, See the sprue image for full details of the parts that go to make up these figures. Although not primarily a figure set in the traditional sense (since it is so small), the figures are accurate and very nicely done. The gun is also a nice model, and not greatly simplified, with the obvious exception of the wheels, which are solid when in reality they had eight spokes. By removing the pegs by which they attach to the game base they could easily be used alongside other Soviet sets reviewed on this site, although other sets provide better models of the gun itself.
