Germany introduced a remarkable number of weapon systems during WWII, with rocket launcher systems being one of them. Rocket-launched weapons first entered combat in 1941, and they proved particularly devastating for massed HE shellfire against a target, even though they weren’t as accurate as regular artillery. Dragon has produced an amazing model of a Wurfgerät 41 rocket launcher in 1/6 scale, the perfect accompaniment for similarly scaled action figures.

The Schweres Wurfgerät 41 (“heavy throwing apparatus”) was a tubular steel framework on which either 280mm HE or 320mm incendiary rockets in wooden or steel crates could be placed. Once the shipping crates containing the rockets had been inclined at the right angle, the rockets could be fired. The HE shells had a maximum range of 1920m while the 320mm rockets could reach 2195m. Dragon’s highly detailed model features the correct steel frame, as well as a total of four shipping crates each containing a rocket. Detail has been maximized by the inclusion of separate components for the wooden crates and rockets, with the former possessing authentic-looking wood-grain patterns. All parts of this large-scale model kit fit together with ease. The set features two 28cm rockets and two of the larger-diameter 32cm rockets. All in all, this Wurfgerät 41 rocket launcher adds up to an impressive display piece, especially when combined with figures into a realistic vignette.
