Jagdpanzer Elefant and Schwimmwagen

The crew of a Jagdpanzer Elefant is resupplying the tank with shells and fuel. The Schwimmwagen amphibious car has one MG 42 machine gun mounted and its position allows to see the propeller, in folded position.

Jagdpanzer Hetzer and Zundapp KS750

Amidst the debris, next to a Jagdpanzer Hetzer, an officer gives indications to a liaison rider mounted in a Zundapp KS750 motorcycle with sidecar.

Jagdpanzer Hetzer

The model is filled with many interesting details, such as the replacement tracks, the tug cable, the shovel, the MP-40 machine gun, the helmet, the gas mask container, the remainings of camouflage meshes... Note the stereoscopic periscope on the top of the structure.

Panzer 38t

The Panzer 38t light tank, of common use on the German Army in the first stages of the war, was later reconverted in a long serie of tank destroyers equipped with powerful anti-tank guns.

M4 Sherman and Willys Jeep

Some US Marines equipped with rifles and machetes, wait next to an M4 Sherman medium tank and a Willys Jeep, while a wounded is assisted.

Sturmgeschutz IV and Kubelwagen

Next to a Sturmgeschutz IV, a commander and an officer are discussing some plans while a soldier, possibly the chouffeur of the Kubelwagen, waits for orders when the discussion is concluded. Note the Stg-44 assault rifle leaned on the table, all the stuff laid on the rear of the tank and the panels that it has installed on the sides to protect the suspension, the tracks and the crew itself.

US Paratroops

US Paratroops armed with Thompson sub-machine gun, including radio operator with iroquois-style hair cut, sheltering within barricades, jerrycans, bidons, sand bags and debris. Note the strips on the trousers to avoid friction noises and the dagger.

ZIS-3 76,2 mm anti-tank gun

The German Army captured more than 1300 units of the ZIS-3 76,2 mm anti-tank guns; they were extensively used after slight modifications. At the end of the war, this was the most numerous Soviet Army field gun, with more than 103,000 pieces produced.
