HobbyBoss 1:35 German VK1602 Leopard


2 items left

The German VK1602 Leopard was designed in 1942 as a reconnaissance tank based on the Pz. Kpfw. II Ausf. J (VK 1601). It was planned to finish the first prototype by the 1st of September 1942, and the serial production was scheduled for April 1943. However, the project was abandoned when the first prototype was still incomplete. The reason for cancellation was that the tank's gun, the 50 mm L/60, was insufficient to fight against modern Soviet and Western tanks, which made the vehicle vulnerable. Moreover, the Leopard had a very high weight (21900 kg). The fact that the Leopard was similar to the Panther meant that a reconnaissance Panther could be developed and produced at lower cost.
