The Hefty JagdTiger weighed nearly 60 tons, and the conventional way to implement a suspension system utilised torsion bars, a very reliable design that could withstand more add-on weight. The downside, however, was the amount of space occupied inside the chassis compartment flooring would be built upon these cylindrical bars ans as one can imagine, the remaining space for the crew to carry ammunition, their daily living possessions and other equipment would be compromised.
These issues were fixed by using Porsche Suspension, mounting suspension externally to the hull which was also easier to repair which is good as reports of driving off road said that it was prone to breaking.
Includes a number of accessories among which are a HL230 Engine set atop a rotatable stand, realistic commander figure, antenna decoration and anti aircraft MG-42 machine gun.
Forces of Valor is well known to the collectors for three fundamental elements; Die-cast, Weathering effects and Moving parts. Since the first 1/32 scale tank debuted to the market, collectors were fascinated by the amount of details being added to the model, what collectors found most surprisingly upon seeing the models was the of level surface detail, even the internal engine, ventilation pipes, internal main gun stowage bin, something that everyone would normally neglect.
To appeal the devoted collectors Forces of Valor has spent a significant amount of time & engineering into developing the hatch & hinges, different kind of gearings etc. Without actually visiting a museum, you can inspect the mechanical components with Forces of Valor replicas.
