Description

This is an injection-plastic military vehicle model kit.

From the manufacturer:

One of the last projects in the long line of the ingenious German "E-series" next generation tanks, the E-100 was planned to be the basis for a whole new line of super heavy armored vehicles.  The Salamander was based on the E-100 chassis, and was developed to be the next generation tank destroyer. The prototypes were produed in Henschel of Haustenbeck in the suburbs of Paderborn. The main armament consists of a 170mm anti-tank gun capable of firing armor-piercing projectiles at ranges up to four kilometers.  A 77mm co-axial gun similar to the Maus was planned, but was done away with to give more room for the crew and ammunition.  The shape that integrated a fighting compartment within the main body is reminiscent of the Jagdspanther, with the front having enough angles of inclination to product 200mm of frontal armor.

With a 1,200hp engine and a new torque converter from Mekydro, a projected speed closer to 40km/hour was attainable.

This kit is molded in gray plastic, with flexible black plastic tracks; decals are also included.
