 At 71.7 tons, the German Jagdtiger tank destroyer was definitely the super heavyweight of WWII armored vehicles. Although it was armed with a lethal 12.8cm PaK 44 L/55 gun, the Jagdtiger's enormous bulk impacted severely on its mobility, meaning it could only hope to reach a maximum speed of 34km/h at best. The Sd.Kfz.186 Jagdtiger entered service in late 1944, and it served on both the Eastern and Western Fronts, with around 80 or so being produced. The first 11 Jagdtigers manufactured were based on a Porsche suspension system (using a paired external torsion bar suspension system with eight single road wheels), while subsequent vehicles employed a Henschel suspension design (individual internal torsion bars with nine double road wheels). 
Dragon’s new 1/35 scale 2-in-1 kit depicts just such a Jagdtiger with the earlier Porsche suspension system. The 2-in-1 descriptor applies because modelers can make a vehicle either with Zimmerit or without that special textured anti-magnetic layer. Thus there are two complete upper hulls (with fighting superstructure), lower hulls and rear plates in the box both with and without the characteristic Zimmerit pattern. Should a modeler opt for the Zimmerit version, they’ll find that the pattern is made to a master’s standard. This is an impressive kit, and the option of a textured or standard surface makes it even more desirable!
