Description Extended Information
 
DeAgostini DAKS29 German Kriegsmarine Type 1936A Class Destroyer - Z24 (1:1250 Scale) "The Beast."
- Prime Minister Winston Churchill's portrayal of the German battleship, Tirpitz

Z24 was one of eight Type 1936A destroyers built for the Kriegsmarine (German Navy) during World War II. Completed in 1940, the ship spent the first half of the war in Norwegian waters. She was very active in attacking the Arctic convoys ferrying war materials to the Soviet Union in 1941-1942, but only helped to sink one Allied ship herself.

After being rearmed in late 1942, Z24 was transferred to France where she spent 1943 escorting Axis blockade runners through the Bay of Biscay and played a minor role in the Battle of the Bay of Biscay at the end of the year. After the Allied landings in Normandy on June 6th, 1944, she was one of the few remaining destroyers in French waters and was badly damaged during the Battle of Ushant several days later. After repairs had been completed in early August, the ship was damaged by Allied fighter-bombers in mid-August. Another attack later in the month by fighter-bombers sank Z24.

Shown here is a 1:1250 scale replica of the famed German Kriegsmarine destroyer, Z24. Now in stock!
