Warlord Games 28mm Panther AUSF A with Zimmerit Boxed Set
Brand: Warlord Games
Model Number: WGBWM141
Scale: 1/56 (28mm)
The Warlord Games Panther AUSF A with Zimmerit in 28mm from the plastic figure models range provides a selection of highly detailed miniatures that accurately recreate the real life Panther AUSF A with Zimmerit.
The Panther was the best all-round German tank of the war and although conceived as a medium tank, at 45 tons and with frontal armour over 100mm thick, it could easily be rated more highly.
The Panther's thick, sloping front armour was copied from the Russian T-34 but the main gun was a weapon that far excelled anything the Russians possessed, the high velocity KwK 42 L70, which was capable of penetrating any Allied tank in service when it was first introduced.
This is the second version of the tank, built from mid 1943 onwards, it saw action on both Eastern and Western fronts. Bizarrely the marques did not follow alphabetical order. Changes on the original Panther include a redesigned hull machine gun and a commanders cupola.
This Panther has been coated with Zimmerit, a paste applied to the vehicle after production to add protection from magnetic mines. Ironically the Germans were the largest users of magnetic anti-tank mines and rarely fought against them. It has no antimagnetic properties of its own but covers the metal of the tank and so doesn't allow magnetic mines to gain purchase.
- 1 resin Panther tank I
- Metal pieces for detailing - Includes side skirts (not shown)
This plastic figures kit requires paint and glue to complete.
