Description

Weighing in at 71.7 tonnes, the German Jagdtiger tank destroyer was definitely the super heavyweight of WWII armored vehicles. It was 10.65m long from the tip of its powerful gun muzzle to the outlets of the rear exhausts, and it was a massive 3.6m wide. The Sd.Kfz. 186 Jagdtiger entered service in late 1944, and it served on both the Eastern and Western Fronts, with around 80 or so produced. Although these vehicles were armed with a lethal 12.8cm PaK 44 L/55 gun, the Jagdtiger...s enormous bulk impacted severely on its mobility, meaning it could only hope to reach a maximum speed of 34km/h at best. In November 1944 Krupp engineers even proposed to make the tank destroyer more lethal by fitting an even longer 12.8cm PaK 80 gun of L/66 caliber. This design was never fielded, however.

The new kit is logically based on Dragon...s existing and highly acclaimed Jagdtiger kit with Henschel suspension. The hull is made from one piece thanks to advanced slide molds, and this provides a suitable platform upon which to build the rest of the highly detailed model. The most obvious brand new parts include the longer gun barrel. This is an impressive kit, and the Jagdtiger...s new look is something to behold!
