The Action Man Infantry Support Weapons (Heavy Weapons) outfit is a fully accessorised Action Man Action Soldier. The vest often loses its grenades and hanging rings, and sometimes the epaulets. The machine gun and mortar are common, however the M60's bi-pod is more often than not broken. Many accessories were available for pocket money prices, and it would have taken a few trips to the toy shop to get a completely kitted out Soldier. The Army Manual (that was included with the boxed Action Soldier) had details of how to set up this figure, and the Action Man accessories available.
