The Kfz.70 6x4 Truck served throughout WWII after mass production commenced in 1933. Some 7,000 trucks were produced up until 1942 and the vehicle was powered by an air-cooled 3.308-liter flat-four engine. The horizontal engine gave rise to the truck’s distinctive, sharply sloped nose, and also to its nickname “Boxer”. The truck was used for all kinds of purposes, and it was commonly employed for towing light artillery such as the 3.7cm Pak 35/36 antitank cannon. Now Dragon Armor is getting in on the action with a new fully built-up model in a personnel carrier configuration, in which state it was known in German nomenclature as the Kfz.70.
The Kfz.70 6x4 truck is finished in a winter camouflage scheme of white swirled over the panzer gray basecoat. It isn’t known what unit the truck originally stemmed from, but it did serve on the Eastern Front in 1943. The wheels and independent coil spring suspension are masterfully represented, as is the raking hood. To add to the item’s appeal and value, the truck is towing a gray-colored 3.7cm PaK 35/36 anti-tank cannon as well. This 6x4 truck was a workhorse of the German military during WWII, and here Dragon Armor has put it to good use towing a common early-war anti-tank cannon.
