WWII’s heaviest armored vehicle was the Sd.Kfz. 186 Jagdtiger, which weighed in at a ponderous 71.7 tonnes. It entered service in September 1944 and saw combat until the end of the war. These monstrous antitank vehicles were supplied to only two combat units – schwere Panzerjäger-Abteilung (sPzJgAbt.) 512 and 653. Dragon Armor has produced an excellent 1/72 scale example of a Jagdtiger with Porsche suspension. All but 11 of the 88 Jagdtigers eventually built had a Henschel suspension system, which had nine road wheels instead of the Porsche’s eight wheels. This makes this Dragon Armor that little bit more unique.

Details on this fully built-up model are beautifully recreated in miniature, and this tank destroyer with 12.8cm PaK 44 L/55 gun is ready to wreak havoc on approaching Allied tanks! In actual fact, only about 20% of Jagdtigers were lost in combat, with the majority being destroyed by their crews after they broke down or ran out of fuel. The model, vehicle no. “314” from 3/sPzJgAbt. 653, is painted in a two-color camouflage scheme. This heavy tank-hunter battalion fought the advancing U.S. Army in March and April 1945 south of Mannheim, before retreating into southern Bavaria. The model is an accurate representation of a Jagdtiger from this period, and is offered to collectors with its own diorama featuring a cobbled road and continental-style buildings. This is a well-balanced little scene that shows a mighty Jagdtiger growling up a narrow German street. All details in the diorama are pre-painted and preassembled, and it constitutes an instant vignette suitable for desktop display.
