Tamiya made 1/48 German Heavy Tank Destroyer Elefant (32589) Tanks Military Series assembly kit

With a powerful 8.8cm weapon capable of taking out Russian T-34s and KV-1s from range, plus armor up to 200mm thick, the Elefant hefty tank destroyer was a formidable possibility. Originally known as the Ferdinand, 90 were generated by May 1943 plus in their first combat action in the Battle of Kursk that July, they truly are believed to have accounted for over 500 Russian tanks. But after Kursk they certainly were withdrawn for an overhaul and returned in February 1944 re-named the Elefant. They certainly were active in Italy and on the Eastern Front, even being thrown in to the defense of Berlin as WWII drew to a close in Europe.


No.102, 1st Company, 653rd Heavy Anti-Tank Battalion, Italy, May 1944
