Trumpeter 1:35 - German Geschutzwagen Tiger Fur 17cm K72 - Plastic model kit #00378

In 1942 the decision was made to build a heavy self-propelled gun carrier for the 17cm Kanone 18 based on the chassis of the Tiger II. The vehicle was named the Geschützwagen Tiger. Its total weight including 8 crew members would reach 60 tons. The armour thickness was 30mm at the front and 16mm on the sides. The Geschützwagen's planned top speed was 45km/h on roads.

The first prototype of this vehicle was tested at the end of WWII, but the tank never saw service due to the defeat of Germany. The partly assembled prototype was found by Allied troops in Haustenbeck in 1945.
