At 70 tons, Germany’s Jagdtiger was certainly no lightweight! In fact it was the heaviest armored vehicle to go into production in WWII. A design to mount a 12.8cm antitank gun on the Tiger II chassis was ordered as far back as early 1943, and by April 1944 the first prototype was ready. The first pair of vehicles was fitted with a Porsche-designed suspension system, a system that proved unsatisfactory. Production was delayed until Henschel redesigned the suspension with a torsion bar system.
Dragon Armor has launched a 1/72 scale model of this Henschel Production Jagdtiger. The fully built-up replica represents tank destroyer “X8” of sPzJgAbt 512 fighting in Germany in 1945. Of special note is the realistically textured coating of zimmerit on the hull and superstructure of this Jagdtiger. This collector’s item has been face-lifted and a brand new crane added to the roof. This type of crane was used to lift up the superstructure roof in order to gain access to the fighting compartment for maintenance. The crane is beautifully reproduced to scale, as is the vehicle itself resplendent in its late-war ambush camouflage scheme.
