The Elephant was one of the secret weapons of German Army during the Battle of Kursk. However, mechanical problems and inappropriate tactical terrain did not contribute to achieve success.

The heavy tank Elefant  was in fact a tank destroyer operated by German Wehrmacht during World War II. It was built in small numbers in 1943 under the name Ferdinand after its designer Ferdinand Porsche, using tank hulls that had been produced for the Tiger I tank requirement which was rejected in favour of a Henschel design.

Some model kits manufacturers have constructed this tank at 1/35 and 1/72. Here we show some of the available Elephant tank models and accessories at 1/35 scale.
