Rhinoceros






Here are some images plus a composite of Dragon Model's 1/35 scale Nashorn. From Wikipedia "Nashorn (German "rhinoceros", pronounced Nahz-horn, not Nash-orn), initially known as Hornisse (German "hornet") was a German tank destroyer of World War II. It was developed as an interim solution in 1942 and was armed with the outstanding PaK 43 anti-tank gun. Though only lightly armoured and with a high profile, it stayed in service until the end of the war and proved to be a quite successful tank destroyer.

I saved the tug as a screensaver!

No problem.

Lightly armored, but I'm assuming it better range than most tanks?

Pat- This vehicle was used throughout the war and I here well received. Fairly quick and great fire power.
