This is a new 1:144 German E75 standard tank with 105mm Kw .K L/68 (Krupp) from the new Wargame Armour series of CGD. This vehicle is fully painted in Dunkelgelb scheme. Weathered and no assembling required.
Dunkelgelb RAL 7028 (dark yellow) was used by WWII Germans as base coat for their vehicles starting from 1943. Field units were given tins of Rotbraun RAL 8017 (red brown) and Olivgruen RAL 6003 (dark olive green) paste concentrate to create camouflage patterns suitable for local conditions.
This model painted in Dunkelgelb can be used as is for the European theater or in North African desert. It can also be a good starting point for painting your own camouflaged scheme as the Germans did in the fields.
E 75 standard tank - In 1945, the German war machine initiated a development program (Entwicklung, or E) aimed at categorizing the development of AFVs in 5, 10, 25, 50, 75 and 100 ton weight brackets. The E 75 was designed to be between 75 to 100 ton and as a standard tank replacing the King Tiger and Jagdtiger. The tank was almost identical to the King Tiger in size but would be easier, cheaper and quicker to produce than the previous designs.
The E 75 shared a lot of components with the E 50 and has the same hull design and dimension. The E 50 has more space inside through using thinner rolled armour plate and hence lighter weight.
To handle the additional weight, the E 75 has an additional suspension unit with 2 more road wheels on each side. The E 75 used E 50's combat track as transport track and another wider track as combat track.
105mm Kw. K. L/68 - was initially proposed by Krupp for increasing the armourment of existing Panzers and Jagdpanzers. It was to be mount on "Tiger B" .
This 1:144 German E75 standard tank with 105mm Kw. K. L/68 (Krupp) features a King Tiger style turret with armour protected range finder and a longer 105mm gun. The chassis has 4 pairs of suspensions with total 8 road wheels on each side. A wide combat track is used.
