The Sd.Kfz.166 was an armored infantry support gun designed mainly for urban operations, more commonly known as the Sturmpanzer IV. As the name implies, it was based on the chassis of the Panzer IV tank. The Allies referred to it as Brummbär, which translates as “Grumbler”. The new armored casemate fitted on the hull enclosed a 15cm StuH.43 L/12 gun. This weapon developed by Skoda could fire the same rounds as the 15cm s.IG.33 gun, with a total of 38 rounds carried inside the vehicle.

Dragon has followed up its earlier Mid-Production 1/35 scale kit of the Brummbär with another kit from the same period, though one featuring a coating of Zimmerit. Anti-magnetic layers of Zimmerit were applied to all vehicles prior to September 1944, so this inclusion makes the kit historically accurate. Modelers will also know that applying Zimmerit to a model is fraught with all kinds of challenges. Dragon’s latest kit thus offers convenience and accuracy, for the injection-molded texture and pattern is beautifully rendered using Dragon’s patented Zimmerit technique. This is obvious in the unique radial Zimmerit pattern on the front of the multi-directional slide-molded superstructure, for example.

The kit incorporates separate metal side skirt elements that provide true-to-scale thickness and can be arranged to a modeler’s preferences. The brand new one-piece 40cm DS tracks were also especially prepared for the Mid-Production Brummbär. The distinctive Brummbär appeared in such battles as Kursk, Anzio, Normandy, Ardennes and the Warsaw Uprising, so it gives model-makers ample scope. For sheer convenience, this Brummbär with Zimmerit offers unparalleled firepower and impact!
