Dragon has come up with an extremely exciting combination for Item No. 6866. It features a Tiger I Mid-Production tank, a famous vehicle that needs no introduction. What makes the kit special is the accompanying Borgward IV Ausf.A heavy demolition vehicle, which could drop off a 500kg explosive charge. Operated via radio by its German crew, the remotely controlled Borgward IV was the heaviest type of Germany’s demolition vehicles used in WWII, with the Goliath and Springer representing the light and medium segments. It was introduced in 1942, with 616 of the 3.65m-long Ausf.A variant produced. This reusable demolition charge carrier wasn’t a great success, however, it was unreliable and expensive. The Tiger I was introduced as the control vehicle for the Borgward IV in 1943-44. There were three companies that operated the Borgward IV. One of these, Panzer Kompanie (Fkl) 313, was subordinated to s.Pz.Abt.508 in December 1943. It had 14 Tiger Is, and its first combat was at Anzio in early 1944.

The Tiger I has Zimmerit, in keeping with that period of the war and for s.Pz.Abt.508, and it has suitable modifications for its control vehicle role. This includes a new antenna and base on the right side of the turret, with this antenna being used to communicate with the demolition charge-carrying vehicle. The well-detailed Borgward IV has not been on the market for a considerable period of time, so its release is much anticipated. Of course, its inclusion with the Tiger I to represent a combination used by C Company of s.Pz.Abt.508 makes it all the more explosively appealing!
