Takon 2102 1/35 Sd.Kfz. 179 PzKpfw V Bergepanther Ausf.D (Umbau Siebert) Full Interior Kit.
The Bergepanzer Sd.Kfz. 179, or Bergepanther was a heavy armored recovery vehicle based on the chassis of the Panzer V Panther, with the first production model being the Ausf. A. The Bergepanther first began its development in 1942 because of the need for a heavy tank recovery vehicle that could manage heavy German armour such as the Panther medium tanks or Tiger I heavy tanks. These generally required up to three SdKfz 9 Famo half-tracks to recover them compared to the single half-track needed to tow a Panzer III or Panzer IV. This made the Panther the main contender for the new heavy armored recovery vehicle. Siebert, which was a large steel fabrication plant with extensive experience in the construction of U-boot hulls, assembled 61 Bergepanther Ausf.D (Umbau) between July 1944 and March 1945. These were rebuilt Panther tanks, without the turret or the transmission hatch over driver and commander, and a sheet metal cover was used over turret ring. An unditching beam and 2t Behelfskran were stowed for tank recovery duties. This kit includes parts for the assembly of one plastic model kit. The set requires both glue and paint in order to be completed. Paints and glue are not included. For modelers aged 14 and older
