This model kit requires assembly. Cement, paint and other construction materials not included unless specifically stated in the description.
One of the last projects in the long line of German ingenious "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 produced 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 75mm 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 Jagdpanther, with the front having enough angles of inclination to produce 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.
