This is a game piece for the Zvezda 'Art of Tactic' game system. It consists of a Pak-36 anti tank gun with two crew figures on a base, along with a marker flag. Although intended to be on the base the gun could just as easily be free-standing, although the two crew do not have bases of their own. The gun comes with the option of having the trail legs splayed open or closed, although of course for firing the legs would be open. The gun was made in the thousands and an excellent weapon, but although it served until 1945 it quickly became obsolete as heavier and better protected tanks came along. See the sprue image for full details of the parts that go to make up the gun, which are few, yet the model is really nice and pretty accurate, as well as easy to put together without need for glue. There was a little flash on our example, but nothing too noticable on an otherwise crisp model. The figures are very lightly equipped as might be expected, but are entirely accurate. The poses are very good, and while such a gun would have had more than two crew, as a game piece this is understandable and makes for a very nice model.
