SD.KFZ.184 Panzerjäger Tiger 'Elefant' (Bovington Tank Museum) - Lego compatible COBI 2507 - 500 brick tank destroyer
Panzerjäger ('tank-hunters') units were a branch of the german Wehrmacht during the Second World War which operated anti-tank artillery, and made exclusive use of tank destroyers (also named Panzerjäger). They protected units of men from tank attack or supported infantry advances against an enemy using tanks and were often called upon to provide direct high explosive supporting fire to infantry by destroying machinegun and artillery positions, particularly in urban fighting. The original name of SD.KFZ.184 'Ferdinand' (named after Ferdinand Porsche, the manufacturer) was changed to 'Elefant' in 1944 after modifications due to the former's poor performance at the Battle of Kursk in 1943.
There is an original vehicle on display in the Tiger Collection at the Tank Museum, Bovington.
The model has a swivelling and elevating gun and operable hatches & engine compartment.
