Pz. KPFW. III Ausf. J (TP)

The Panzer III was developed in the 1930s to act as Germany’s main battle tank with the task of taking on enemy armored vehicles. However, by the time it encountered Russian T-34 and KV-1 tanks on the Eastern Front, it had become obsolete for this task. In an effort to keep the Pz.Kpfw.III relevant, it was rapidly up-gunned and up-armored. One such variant was the Ausf.J, which featured 50mm-thick solid frontal armor, an improvement over the earlier 30mm armor. It also received a longer 5cm KwK.38 L/42 main gun, though later production examples of the Ausf.J received even longer KwK.39 L/60 guns. Another important change in the Ausf.J was a lengthened hull. A total of 482 Early Production Ausf.J tanks were built in 1941, while a total of 1067 vehicles with the more capable KwK.39 L/60 gun were produced up till mid-1942. The Ausf.J served in Russia as well as North Africa. Dragon is proud to announce a phenomenal 1/35 scale representation of a Panzer III Ausf.J Early Production tank. The kit boasts the correct modifications of this variant, with many parts such as the engine deck and turret shell newly designed and produced by slide molds. The slide-molded hull comes as one piece to serve as an accurate foundation for all the exquisite detail found in this kit. Photo-etched parts for elements like idler-wheel rings and air-intake grills add realism. Clever engineering also ensures this Smart Kit is not overly complicated to assemble, the job being made easier by parts such as Dragon’s patented Magic Tracks. This new 1/35 kit from Dragon extends the Panzer III range, and it has enormous potential in modelers’ dioramas or vehicle collections!
