LWG001 Winter German King Tiger Tank - 2nd Company, Panzer Abt. 509 - Hungary

First Legion is extremely pleased to present the first set in our Late War German sub range of our WWII figure series.    Panzer Abt. 509 was an was an independent tank battalion operating on the Eastern front.   It was equipped with King Tiger tanks in December of 1944 and took part in the failed relief attampt of Budapest in January 1945 as part of Operation Konrad III.  During this action, the battalion lost some 40 of it's tanks.  The King Tiger was the successor to the Tiger I as Germany's Heavy Tank and combined the thick armor of the Tiger I with the sloping armor of the Panther along with the firepower of the 8.8 cm KwK 43 L/71 anti-tank cannon.   Ours is depicted with the Henschel turret and a superbly detailed "winter whitewash".   This tank is a real beast for sure at 70 tons and our rendition of it is modeled and painted to the very highest standards including additional weathering.      

The model is made from a mixed media (resin, metal, plastic, brass,  photo etch, etc...) and has the following features:
- Opening & Closing Commander's Cupola
- Removable spare tracks on the turret
- Opening & Closing hatch on turret
- Fully Rotating Turret
- Removable AAMG
- Gun Raises/Lowers
- Antenna
- Extremely realistic weathering and superb sculpting and painting
