Alkett Sd.Kfz.164 Nashorn Diecast Model
German Army 3./sHPzJgAbt 88, Red Heart, Eastern Front, 1944

1:72 Scale   Length   Width
Alkett Sd.Kfz.164 Nashorn   4.75"   1.75"

This model is painted in a two-tone camouflage scheme with a distinctive unit insignia of 3./s.H.Pz.Jg.Abt.88 fighting on the Eastern Front in the autumn of 1944.

The rhinoceros, a native of Africa, is identifiable by its mighty and dangerous horn. On the other hand, a Nashorn (German for rhinoceros) is identifiable by its long and lethal 88mm Pak 43/1 L/71 gun. When the earlier Hornisse tank hunter (a Panzer IV reincarnated with an 88mm gun mounted centrally in a lightly armored superstructure) was modified with this newer gun and a revised driver's front plate, it also received the new name of Nashorn, at Hitler's request.

Alkett Sd.Kfz.164 Nashorn

The Nashorn or, "Rhinoceros", was a tank hunter used by the Germans in WWII. The Nashorn began production in early 1943 with an 88mm anti-tank gun, the same gun used on the Tiger. It was design on a lengthened new Panzer III/IV (a mixture of the Panzer III and IV) chassis, with the gun being surrounded with an open topped superstructure. The tanks debut was made in the battle of Kursk 1943 where it met much success due to its ability to engage enemy tanks at a distance at which the allied tanks could not hit or penetrate it.
