Tamiya 1/35 German Bundeswehr Self=Propelled Howitzer M109A3G

Since its establishment in 1955 the Bundeswehr has extensively deployed U.S. hardware. One example was the M109G self-propelled gun, a version of the base U.S. M109 received from 1964 onwards, and which the Bundeswehr modified with new tracks, fire control system, muzzle brake and breech. The long-serving M109G had a major upgrade between 1986 and 1990 - denoted M109A3G, converted vehicles had a Rheinmetall L/39 155mm FH70 gun with a 24.7km range. At the same time, the fire control system was overhauled, a bulletproof cover added to the panoramic sight, and shell capacity increased from 28 to 34. Replaced by the cutting-edge PzH 2000 in 2007, the Bundeswehr's very own M109 gave over 40 years of service in its different guises.

The popular Italeri M109 kit is packaged with parts to accurately depict M109A3G components such as the long-barrelled gun, Bundeswehr tracks, cupola, MG3 machine gun and cradle, smoke dischargers, plus turret rear storage boxes. A wide range of parts are on hand to recreate accessories such as tools, rear view mirrors and so on. Parts recreating the turret-top panoramic sight and drive sprocket center caps have been freshly molded for a more precise finish.
