This is an injection-plastic military vehicle model kit.
From 1935 to 1941, the Krupp Protze was produced as a 1.5 ton, 6-wheeled Germany Army military truck. The 60hp Krupp Broxer was equipped with a 3.3 liter gasoline engine, and had a cruise distance of 70km/h. The most common vehicle was a type capable of towing a 3.7cm Pak 36 anti-tank cannon, with its operating staff and ammunition. Although it was a revolutionary desgin, it had a significant weak point in that it consumed twice as much fuel as the Opel Blitz, a very similiar military truck. Some of the vehicles were equipped with a 3.7cm Pak 36 anti-tank gun on the rear loading platform, used as a simple anti-tank self-propelled gun. The Pak 36 was very effective on light tanks during the war of 1939, but it was difficult for it to penetrate the heavy armor of British Matilda tanks and French Samua S 35 tanks.
Some of the anti-tank-gun-mounted Protze were equipped with armor palte, and were thus defended against small firearms; however, it experienced a drop in output due to the weight increase. More than 7,000 of each type of Protze were produced.
This kit includes photo-etched parts and high-quality decals, too.
