Description

This is an injection-plastic military vehicle model kit.

When the Hungarian army saw the effectiveness of the assault charge of Germany's tanks in the Eastern Front, it was decided to develop a self-propelled cannon of the assault type based on the Turan middle tank. The main gun used the 105mm M40 type, which was left untouched while being developed, and the body was enlarged to compensate for the Turan's inadequate size. The battle chamber have a front 75mm pressure armor, and carried a main gun on a hemispherical shield. Although production was delayed at the end of 1943 due to inadequacies of the factory network in Japan, its performance was very effective and it received high marks from many officers. In the late part of the war, a type equipped with side skirts for bulletproof defense was also produced.
