Contains: 2x Hornisse (8.8cm) Tank-hunters in Metal and Resin

The Hornisse was developed as an interim solution, to the lack of long range tank destroyers in the Wehrmacht in 1942. Engineers devised a light turretless chassis based on the Panzer III and Panzer IV tanks and armed it with the 88mm Pak 43 anti-tank gun.

Though only lightly armoured and displaying a high profile, it could frontally penetrate any Allied tank at long range, and its relatively low cost and superior mobility to heavier vehicles ensured it remained in production until the war's end.

These are a great choice to use in support of fast moving armoured formations, combining the range of their guns with a high penetration AT rating to destroy most Allied Armour opposing it. Just be aware of incoming fire as the defensive rating for the points cost is low compared to the Elefant
