Forces of Valor Engine Plus Series 801024A Henschel/Porsche Sd.Kfz.186 Jagdtiger Diecast Model German Army sPzJgAbt 653, #331, Germany, 1945, w/1 Figure
Henschel/Porsche Sd.Kfz.186 Jagdtiger
The German Jagdtiger was heavily armored and wielded a powerful PaK 44 128mm gun that could defeat enemies at long ranges; the imposing Jagtiger was built to take out any tank on the battlefields of WWII. However and underpowered engine, extreme weight and slow reload time were caveats to its deadly reach. Plagued by mechanical breakdowns, the Jagdtiger was more likely to be put out of commission by a lack of fuel or engine trouble than an enemy round.
The Panzerjager Tiger or Jagdtiger was a tank destroyer that saw service from late 1944 to the end of the war on both the Western Front and Eastern Front. It was the heaviest armored fighting vehicle to see service during World War II.
Forces of Valor's 1:32 scale Jagdtiger is designed with a mix of plastic and diecast metal components. The upper portion of the hull is metal with the top and rear casement made from plastic for detailed recreation of hatches and access doors. The lower portion of the hull and the wheels are plastic and feature detailed rivets and bolts. Casting effects and torch marks can be seen at the ends of the casements. The opening commander's hatch has a removable figure, and the main gun pivots and can be positioned on the retractable transport support assembly. The battlefield equipment is removable and the rubber tracks and tires roll freely.
