3./s.Pz.Abt.502 ~ Eastern Front 1944
When Germany’s mighty Tiger I tanks were first introduced, they were organized into special heavy tank battalions known as schwere Panzer-Abteilung (or sPzAbt. for short). The first three operational units were sPzAbt. 501, 502, and 503. Joining Dragon Armor masterpiece is this Early Production Tiger I from the 3rd company of the same sPzAbt. 502 unit. This famous battalion, whose insignia was a “mammut” (mammoth), had been caught up in ferocious fighting on the Eastern Front since its formation in 1942.
This fine 1/72 scale miniature tank from Dragon, numbered “302”, is wearing a two-tone camouflage pattern of red-brown strokes over a sand-colored base. Perhaps the most unique feature of this model is the remarkable zimmerit coating produced in true-to-scale dimensions. The model also has spare track links stowed on the turret sides, as usually occurred on the battlefield. The tank is beautifully finished and weathered to represent a Tiger I fighting in Eastern Front 1944, as these ponderous but lethal Tigers were continuously thrown into combat to plug the widening gaps in the German frontlines.
