Germany produced a number of tank destroyers in an effort to resist the tide of armor pushing against it from all sides. One of these designs was the Panzer IV/70(A). As indicated by its name, this vehicle was based on an unchanged Panzer IV chassis (specifically an Ausf.J) and it was produced by Alkett as an interim design. A total of 278 tank-killer vehicles were produced concurrently with the more common Jagdpanzer IV/70(V) from August 1944 to March 1945. A long-barreled 7.5cm PaK 42 gun was mounted in the superstructure. The nose-heavy attitude of the vehicle dictated that the first four road wheels be steel-rimmed, while the vertical lower sides of the superstructure visually distinguish this type from the Jagdpanzer IV/70(V).

Dragon has created another 1/35 scale version of this important tank destroyer. Its based on Item No.6689, itself based on Dragons Panzer IV Smart Kit family. This newest Pz.Kpfw.IV/70(A) family member is a Late-Production type, and the major difference is that it possesses a modified hull derived from a later-production series of the Panzer IV. The suspension features three return rollers per side, plus there are other detail differences appropriate to a Late-Production vehicle. As a Smart Kit, theres a one-piece lower hull, convenient Magic Tracks and the fighting compartment is made by slide molds so no multipart assembly is necessary. There are Schurzen side skirts and of special interest is the mounted MP44 Vorsatz P, a weapon with a curved barrel to protect blind-spots not covered by the mounted MG42 machine gun. The gun breech is fully represented, and it can be viewed through the open roof hatches. Welcome to the new family addition
