Orange Box has forged a well-earned reputation for offering innovative 1/35 scale armored vehicle and figure combinations at bargain prices. And the latest offering is no different. Orange Box Item No.9136 contains an Artillerie Panzerbeobachtungswagen III (Sd.Kfz.143), which in more understandable terms means an artillery observation tank! A total of 262 such tanks were converted from Panzer III. They featured improved armor protection and the main armament was replaced with a dummy gun that allowed powerful radio equipment to be installed within the tank interior. Manned by a crew of five, these Pz.Beob.Wg.III vehicles served widely with Wespe and Hummel artillery batteries. The Dragon kit specifically depicts an Ausf.H variant of this artillery observation vehicle. To give even greater value for money, the tank is fitted with Magic Tracks.
The Orange Box value pack comes with four German figures. These represent a tank crew relaxing over a game of cards in a period of downtime. These well-sculpted figures are sourced from Master Box, and they make a nice accompaniment to the Dragon tank. Any soldier will agree that war is generally punctuated by sharp and intense bursts of activity in between long periods of waiting. This realistic set allows model-makers to depict one of those lulls in between fighting. For modelers wishing to create a fresh scene, this set is the place to start!
