The Veteran's Freedom Flag Foundation held a large unveiling ceremony for a pint-sized product.

The foundation introduced the half-sized replica of the Abrams M1A2Sep V2 Main Battle Tank. The tiny tank, called the Half-Pint, was made entirely at JSMC and cost almost $96,000 to make. Half-Pint will primarily be used at public events such as parades, where taking a full-size tank would be too costly and pose a liability issue. They are willing to take Half-Pint anywhere that people want to see it, so long as they have the volunteers to transport it.

"We're going to take this tank anywhere and everywhere the main battle tank couldn't go," says Project Manager Charlie Couch. "If we get a request in Colorado, we get a request in Florida, if I get the volunteers to pull this vehicle wherever, it'll be there."

The project took four years to complete.
