Description

Dragon had a tremendous response to its 1/35 StuG.III Ausf.C/D kit (Item No.6851), and a new variation on the theme is now available. It’s a kit of the Ausf.D variant fitted with tropical air filters and representing vehicles belonging to Sonderverband z.b.V 288. This was a special deployment unit raised on 1 July 1941 and which drew together crack troops from around Germany. The unit was originally created to pave the way for the Deutsche Afrikakorps to reach the Nile and continue eastward into the Middle East. In the end, despite Rommel never achieving the desired breakthrough, the unit did serve in North Africa with StuG.IIIs and it participated in battles such as El Alamein. The vehicles featured pre-filters placed above the main cooling air intakes to counter the hot and dusty conditions.

Models are supplied unpainted and some assembly may be required.
