M42 Duster Walk Around. Book by David Doyle. Squadron Signal Books. The US Army began accepting deliveries of the M42 in October 1952, when production ended in 1959, approximately 3,700 units delivered. By the late ?60s, the Duster?s limits seemed to have been reached. The lack of radar tracking system meant the M42 was a 'fair weather' shooter against low, slow targets; it just could not keep pace with the new generation of Soviet jet aircraft. As American involvement in Vietnam increased, three battalions of Dusters were sent to South Vietnam - initially for anti-aircraft duties, but with clear skies over the South, the M42 was usefully employed as convoy escort, perimeter and base security, and direct fire support. A detailed look at the M42 Duster with more than 200 photographs, color profiles and detailed line drawings; 80 pages.
