War Master WMTK015 German Sd. Kfz. 138/2 Jagdpanzer 38(t) Hetzer Light Tank Destroyer - Unknown Unit, Prague, Czechoslovakia, 1945 (1:72 Scale) "We must do everything we can to promote anti-tank defense, and work just as hard to guarantee successful counter-attacks through the instrument of powerful tank forces of our own."
- Major-General Heinz Guderian, "Achtung Panzer!"

Manufactured in Czechoslovakia at the Skoda Munitions Works, the Hetzer was designed to be a low-cost light tank destroyer that could stand up to the rigors of battle on any front. Entering service in July 1944, the Hetzer used a wide range of existing components from the outclassed PzKpfw 38(t) tank. Although the Hetzer employed a wider hull and sloped armor, its cramped fighting compartment and limited angle of fire presented many problems to its crew. The Hetzer also featured a roof-mounted remote-controlled machine gun for close combat support.

This particular 1:72 scale replica of a German Hetzer light tank destroyer was deployed to defend Prague, Czechoslovakia, in May 1945. Sold Out!

Historical Account: "Last Stand" - The Prague Offensive was the last major Soviet operation of World War II in Europe. The offensive, and the battle for Prague, was fought on the Eastern Front from May 6th to the 11th, 1945. This battle for the city is particularly noteworthy in that it ended after the Third Reich capitulated on May 7th, 1945. This battle is also noteworthy in that it was fought concurrently with the Prague Uprising.

The city of Prague was ultimately captured by the USSR during the Prague Offensive. All of the German troops of Army Group Centre (Heeresgruppe Mitte) were killed or captured. The capitulation of Army Group Centre was nine days after the fall of Berlin and three days after Victory in Europe Day.
