Skvěle vypadají model stíhače tanků. Nádherné maskování blížící se skutečnosti. Dobře se staví, absolutně žádný problém :-) Postavil jsem ho asi za tři hodiny a už si hoví mezi ostatními modely tanků, letadel a lodí německé armády :-)

You know that:

  • When in 1941 the German Armaments Office announced a competition for a heavy armoured vehicle with a minimum 88 mm calibre gun, two companies entered the competition, Porsche and Henschel. Ferdinand Porsche was so sure of his victory that he did not wait for the announcement of the competition results and immediately began serial production. When, during a meeting at the Heereswaffenamt in Berlin, Porsche learned that Henschel had won the competition, he had such a fit of rage that it was impossible to calm him down. Later, it was decided to use the work in progress, but that is another story.
  • Henschel produced the first units in March 1943. There was no time for thorough testing due to the situation on the Eastern Front. The first tanks were deployed in the Battle of Kursk. Ferdinand was a tough opponent, literally. The Soviet army at that time did not have a weapon and ammunition capable of penetrating the frontal armor of a tank. 
  • But even such a heavily armoured tank fighter had its weaknesses. Behind the destruction of many pieces is zero protection from enemy infantry, for which the lone clumsy Ferdinand became easy prey. All he had to do was climb onto the hull of the vehicle.
  • The machines that survived the Battle of Kursk were sent back to Germany for a rebuild that was supposed to eliminate the major deficiencies. The tank was fitted with an MG 34 machine gun and a periscope. Two 5l carbon dioxide extinguishing tanks were also installed. The modified tank fighters were named Elefant.
  • Despite all the disadvantages, the Ferdinan commanded great respect from the Red Army. The deployment of these machines was mirrored in contemporary Russian literature and newspapers. All the newspapers of the time wrote about a machine so large and powerful that no army in the world had ever encountered. But the fearless Red Army had already destroyed thousands of them. The problem is that only 90 Ferdinands were deployed on the Eastern Front.
  • The last Elefant was not destroyed until April 22, 1945, on the outskirts of Berlin.

From the memoirs of American tanker Lafayette G. Poole:

"Those Elephants were a nightmare for us during the Italian campaign. They were able to destroy our tank at a distance of over two kilometers. We had to try to get around them and attack their weak rear. But it was not easy because they were always accompanied by other tanks or infantry.”
