Trumpeter Military Models 1/35 German 12.8cm Kanone 43 bzw44 (Krupp) Gun Kit
The 12.8 cm Pak 44, (Panzerabwehrkanone) was a German anti-tank gun used during World War II. It was designed as a result of experiences on the Eastern front in 1943. The German army had encountered the Russian 122 mm guns and had issued a requirement for a similar weapon. Development initially concentrated on a field gun known as the Kanone K 44. However once heavier Russian armor such as the IS-2 started to appear the design requirements were altered to include an anti-armor role.
