This is a 1/35 Plastic German 38cm Assault Mortar for Sturmtiger. This kit is recommended for age 10 and up. A very rare variant of the much feared Tiger I heavy tank, was the "Sturmtiger" assault weapon that mounted a gigantic 38cm caliber mortar on the tank chassis. Development was initiated in August 1943 and was intended for use against heavily fortified areas. The short barreled L/5.4, type RW61 mortar was originally developed by Rheinmetall-Borsig, for the German navy's land-based protection against an enemy submarine attack. In order to withstandthe heavy recoil of up to 40 tons, the Tiger I's sturdy chassis was selected. A decision was made to use only those chassis/hulls that were sent back from the front, so that new production of the tank would not be affected. A lighting compartment was formed of a box-like superstructure which was bolted to the lower hull itself. FEATURES: Detailed plastic parts attached to sprues and molded in light brown and black.
