This is a plastic model kit. Full assembly and paint required.Thanks to their larger scale, Dragonís 1/6 range of weapons and light equipment offer stunning detail and realism to collectors. The very latest weapon to swell the ranks is a 5cm PaK 38 antitank gun. This was a towed weapon introduced to troops in the summer of 1940, offering markedly improved penetration power compared to the incumbent 3.7cm PaK 35/36. One of its first combat tests was in 1941 during the invasion of Russia, where it proved to be the only German weapon capable of taking on the heavier Soviet tank designs that were being encountered for the first time. At 830kg, it was light, mobile and possessed a low silhouette, all important factors in an antitank weapon. The Rheinmetall-Borsig AG weapon was able to knock out the Soviet T-34 if Panzergranate 40 tungsten-cored ammunition was employed. Although heavier antitank weaponry such as the 7.5cm PaK 40 was introduced as WWII wore on, some PaK 38s served on until the very end.
