Big Power, Compact Scale
Armor evolved exponentially during WWII as both sides tried to gain the upper hand on one another; the Nashorn was one of the German answers to powerful Allied vehicles. Based upon a chassis employing Pz.Kpfw.III and IV components, and employing a brand new hull with a fearsome 8.8cm gun, The Nashorn debuted in Summer 1943 at the pivotal Battle of Kursk, where it put its phenomenal armor piercing abilities to effective use. It would serve until the end of the conflict, proving a constant thorn in the Allies' side.
