This may sound strange, but the iron mechanical power of the Wehrmacht in World War II began with... a tractor. It was under the name "agricultural tractor LaS 100" that Germany produced the first combat tanks of the largest war of the 20th century.
The modification of the basic model Panzer I became the light tank “Panzerkampfwagen II” or “Pz.Kpfw. II”. It was one of the most mass-produced combat vehicles of World War II. By 1942, when they gave way to heavy machines, more than 3,500 of them had been produced.
This not-fast tank, weighing about 8 tons, could reach a speed of 40 km/h on the highway and was designed to cover infantry attacks. Its armor was sufficient to protect against small arms and mines, but artillery strikes were fatal to the Panzer II. Moreover, its firepower was hardly impressive. The main weapon of the tank was a 20mm automatic cannon. There were several weapons options - tank modifications with flamethrower systems and heavy machine guns as the main weapon exist. The main protection was the turret design with ricochet angles, which allowed for the softening or reflecting of enemy weapons hits.
The crew of the “Pz.Kpfw. II” consisted of three people. The loader and commander had a 7.92 mm MG-34 machine gun at their disposal, located on one front panel with the main weapon.
The small size and good maneuverability helped the“Pz.Kpfw. II” successfully perform combat tasks and provide the German army with victories in the first years of the war.
The "Pz.Kpfw. II" self-assembly model is an excellent gift for history buffs of military equipment, WWII battle reenactors, and all fans of technical creativity.
This model features the recognizable design of the "Pz.Kpfw. II" tank: the geometry of the rotating turret, a chassis on six rollers with a special suspension, hatches, weapons, and engine radiators. Textures and images are applied to surfaces by electrochemical etching, giving the model a resemblance to the original combat vehicle. All model parts are made of stainless steel used in the food industry, the production of consumer goods, and toys. The assembly of the "Pz.Kpfw. II" excludes any harm to the owner. The precise cutting allows for the assembly of models without the use of additional tools, soldering, or gluing.
The assembled scale model of the light tank "Panzer II" can be used as a souvenir, interior decoration, or paperweight. It can also be used to create installations, models, or reconstructions of tank battles in World War II. It will take a worthy place on the stand of a collector of military equipment.
