FEATURES
  • This is a 1/35 scale plastic model assembly kit. Length: 191mm, width: 78mm.
  • Tamiya designers studied an actual Archer in depth, and the result is this unerringly accurate depiction of the SPG's form.
  • The lengthened and modified Valentine chassis and its welded armor are accurately captured.
  • Features a realistic rendering of the 17 pounder with breech details and more.
  • Open-top fighting compartment shows off great detail inside, such as shell racks, machine gun and accessories.
  • Comes with 3 figures, which depict commander, gunner and loader in action pose.
  • 2 marking options are included, offering the chance to recreate 7th Anti-Tank Regiment and 3rd Canadian Infantry Division vehicles.

Design work began in 1942 on the Archer, a self-propelled anti-tank gun intended as a stopgap until a full-time solution could be found. Mounting the gigantic 17 pounder gun on the relatively small Valentine infantry tank chassis was a challenge which the Archer's designers met with an unusual solution - installing the gun back-to-front, with the fighting compartment taking up the front of the vehicle. Using armor-piercing rounds, it could defeat 192mm of armor at 914 meters, enough to pose ample threat to any German armor of the day. Production began in 1944, and Archers were delivered to the British Army's Armoured and Infantry Divisions, who began using it from October.
