Some off the wall stuff. The rocket panzer looked like a whiff. This requires further investigation.

Also looks like somebody on the company's Facebook page is claiming they've pirated his stuff. I dunno, make of that what you will.

It's all in the wrong scale, anyway! ;)

The Raketenwerfer variant was designed by Skoda and armed with 105mm Raketenwerfer (rocket launcher) mounted on a fully traversible platform in place of the standard turret, but the design never reached hardware stage.

I believe this may also be another future 1/35 release of theirs:

Does anyone have any info on this one?



It is listed as a T34 with 2x45mm and 1x76mm gun.  I can find no record of such a mod though.

 That's a puzzler.  I recall a KV variant that was supposed to have that armament fit, but not a T-34.

As the Doc sez, the KV-6 (or KV-7 ver. 1, sources vary) had that armament arrangement, but I don't see how it'd
fit in a turret on a T-34.

I know the KV variant you speak of.

Re this T-34, I did find this online - I can't vouch for its authenticity though:
