About This Release,
It weighed more than 70 tons...It was the heaviest armored vehicle to enter combat in WWII…It boasted a powerful 128mm PaK44 L/55 gun…It was none other than the formidable Jagdtiger! Dragon now brings to collectors, a spectacular 1/72 scale model of this mighty German tank destroyer. The model is distinguished by the fact that it features the rare Porsche suspension system. Of the 88 Jagdtigers built, just 11 of the earliest vehicles were based on the Porsche suspension design, which had eight road wheels instead of the nine wheels on the later Henschel-designed setup.

This model represents a vehicle fighting against the advancing Allies in Alsace on the Western Front in 1945. It is from sPzJgAbt 653, one of only two heavy antitank battalions equipped with the Jagdtiger (the other was sPzJgAbt 512). Interestingly, only about 20% of Jagdtigers were lost as a result of combat damage, for the majority were abandoned and sabotaged by their crews usually when they broke down! Another interesting aspect of this model from Dragon Armor is the zimmerit coating, which adorns the hull and almost to the top of the superstructure sides. This is produced by Dragon’s high-tech patented zimmerit process. The top of the boxy fighting compartment is also draped in a tarpaulin, which provided some form of additional weather protection for the crew. The accurate scale model is coated in a precise three-coat camouflage scheme. It’s also authentically weathered, which enhances the scale look of the zimmerit. All in all, this is a fine rendition of the mightiest armored vehicle to fire in anger during the world’s largest ever conflict.
