Description

The German heavy tank destroyer Elefant was armed with a powerful 8.8cm L/71 gun which could knock out T-34 tanks at a distance of 2,000m, protected by armour up to 200mm thick, and equipped with advanced features such as a hybrid drivetrain. It had its roots in the Porsche-designed Ferdinand, which was first deployed into combat during the Battle of Kursk in 1943. The lessons learned from that battle resulted in modifications including the addition of a commander’s cupola, a machine gun for infantry defence, and better tracks and the enhanced vehicle received the new designation Elefant in February 1944. Elefants were deployed to Italy and the Eastern Front, where they continued to defend against Allied forces until the final skirmishes of the war.

The Elefant’s imposing form is faithfully depicted thanks to thorough research of an actual example at the Aberdeen Proving Grounds.

Accurately reproduced engine grilles and hull machine gun position.

Features detailed bolt-on frontal armour. Driver torso figure adds to the model’s presence.

Commander and loader torso figures are also included. Commander’s cupola is one of the key features of the Elefant.

Slide-moulded one-piece fighting compartment contributes to ease of assembly.

Tracks are also engineered for easy assembly.
