In the lead-up to WWII, Germany started to transform civilian vehicles into military ones, and one of the subjects was a light 6-wheel truck which was mass-produced starting in 1933. This 1936 evolution of the truck had a 60hp flat four square cylinder engine that mustered 55hp and provided up to 70km/h. The truck was used for transporting personnel and light artillery, and it utilized 6x4 independent suspension with rear 4-wheel drive. The first mass-produced variant was the Kfz.69, which was designed to tow a 3.7cm Pak 35/36 anti-tank gun and carried a driver and 5-artillery crew. It was employed as standard equipment in anti-tank artillery divisions and was seen in action in locations such as France, Poland, the Balkans, and Russia.
The Tamiya model faithfully captures all of the details of the full-size subject thanks to extensive research of surviving samples left over from the war.
- The model accurately recreates the form of the Kfz.69 with sloping engine hood and rear-mounted ammo cases.
- The newly-designed recreation of the 3.7cm Pak gun can be assembled to depict the weapon being towed by the Kfz.69, or being fired.
- A number of accessories are included to depict accessories such as the jack and soldiers' rifles.
- Comes with 2 marking options and 6 realistic figures.
