The SdKfz 179 Bergepanther was an armoured recovery vehicle that was used by Germany during World War II. It was based on the chassis of the Panzer V Panther with the first production model was the Ausf. A version. The Bergepanzer Sd.Kfz. 179 or Berge-Panzerkampfwagen Sd.Kfz. 179 was often abbreviated to Pz.Berge.Wg Panther I Sd.Kfz. 179.The Bergepanther first began its development in 1942 because of the need for a heavy duty tank recovery vehicle that came about with the introduction of German heavy armour such as the Panther medium tank or Tiger I heavy tanks. These generally required up to three SdKfz 9 Famo half-tracks to recover them compared to the single half-track needed to tow a Panzer III or Panzer IV. Tigers at the time were also valued highly, a little more so than the Panthers considering the Tiger’s smaller production numbers. This made the Panther the preferred base for the new heavy armoured recovery vehicle. This full interior kit features link and length style tracks, and hatches that can be built in open or closed positions. It comes with photo-etched parts, and 4 types of markings.World Hobby Miniatures has been the trusted distributors in Malaysia for many years now, we carry AFV, Aircraft, Automobile, Ships, Modelling Accessories, Tools, Paints, Photo-etch, Modelling Book, Magazine sand more.
