Sd.Kfz.181 Sturmtiger Diecast Model
German Army, 1944

1:72 Scale   Length   Width
Sd.Kfz.181 Sturmtiger   3.5"   2"

The Sturmtiger, based on the Tiger I, was armed with a short-barreled 38cm Raketenwerfer 61 L/5.4, breech-loading rocket-launcher/mortar. The RW 61 launcher fired short-range (4.600 to 6,000 meters). Sturmtigers equipped three Panzer Sturm-Morser-Kompanie (PzStuMrKp)-1000, 1001, and 1002, that served mainly on the Western Front. Only eighteen Sturmtigers were produced, and they did not have any effect on the out-come of the war. In their limited use, Sturmtigers provided to be excellent defensive weapons, but were slow and mechanically unreliable.

Sd.Kfz.181 Sturmtiger

Production of the Tiger began in August 1942, and by August 1944 1,355 of these tanks had been built. The 88mm main gun was the most powerful anti-tank gun in use by any army. The superior mobility of Allied tanks allowed them to attack from behind or from the side in the hope of taking a Tiger down. The influence of Tiger tanks on allied morale grew to almost mythical proportions, and was known as "Tigerphobia." Tigers destroyed tremendous amounts of enemy equipment and often just the sight of a Tiger would induce the Russian tankers to withdraw.
