A collection of military vehicles in 1/72 & 1/76th scalesIncluding brands like Dragon Armour, Warmaster, Blitz72 and many more.
The Fuchs 2 has a maximum combat weight of 20,000kg and is fully amphibious. The main improved features incorporated into the Fuchs 2 are the integration of a more powerful, low-emission engine allowing for a payload increase of 4 tons to a total of 9.4 tons, depending on the version. The drive and brakes have been upgraded to match the higher power and weight performance. The height of the rear crew compartment has been increased by 145mm and roof-mounted air louvers have been installed. Other improvements include the digital onboard system to CAN-Standard SAE J 1939 and a central tire inflation system.
The cabin is sufficiently large with 10.5m sq stowage capacity to accommodate a range of mission systems. The family of Fuchs 2 vehicles includes an NBC protection vehicle, reconnaissance, C4I command, control, communications and intelligence, C3I, mortar carrier and an electronic warfare vehicle.
Dragon Armor announced a fully built-up 1/72 scale model of the Schwere Einheits PKW A.U. Horch painted in an early-war panzer grey colour. Now a second version of this soft-skin vehicle is available to collectors. The 4x4 heavy car was produced by Auto Union and Horch from 1938 onwards, and it served in all theaters of WWII. The original Type 1a had four-wheel steering, while the later Type 1b produced from 1940 onwards had regular front-wheel steering. This vehicle possessed four-wheel drive but production ceased in 1941 as part of German efforts to standardize production. The personnel carrier was powered by a V8 Horch engine of 3.823-liter capacity.
