During the later stages of WWII, the heavy tank destroyer Jadgtiger (which weighed in excess of 70 tons and had an impressive 12.8cm gun and thick armor) was the heaviest tank seen on both the eastern and western fronts. Tamiya is releasing this 1/35 scale Jagdtiger after its first release 33 years ago in commemoration of the 40th year anniversary of the 1/35 Military Miniature series.
