Thor 1946

To a degree, the Thor project represented the desperation of a war weary Germany, outnumbered and retreating on all fronts. However, necessity is often the mother of invention and so it was that the Thor, or more precisely, the Mjolner rocket that it fired would radically re-balance the tactical battlefield and allow Germany to weather the Soviet storm well into 1946. Indeed, it could be argued that the massive casualties inflicted on the Soviet Forces and the ultimate stalemate that descended over the Eastern Front was directly attributable to the massed use of thermobaric weapons. It is equally argued that it was Hitler’s last minute decision to cancel Operation Citadel and adopt a flexible defence that allowed Germany the time and strategic reserve to field its new weapons effectively.

As the Tiger I was slowly phase out of front line service by the introduction of the Tiger II, the older but still useful Tiger I’s were converted into numerous heavy support vehicles. The Thor was a 24 round box launcher mounted on just such a hull. The GWGr 21 ‘Mjolnir’ unguided thermobaric rocket was 21cm in diameter, 3.5m in length and had a range of approximately 7-8Km. The 24 rockets could either be fire in pairs or salvo fired over a period of 15 seconds. Although the whole launcher turret assembly could rotate 360 degrees, it was standard practice to fire in the fore and aft position as this gave the best stability for firing. A pair of stabilising hydraulic jacks were mounted at the rear of the vehicle. The launcher was elevated by a pair of hydraulic rams attached to the rear of the stub turret. A dedicated reload vehicle was used to recharge the launcher.

In 1946, the Tiger hull provided the crew of 4 (Commander, Gunner, Driver, Co-Driver/MG Gunner) with much needed armoured protection. For close in defence the Thor carried 2 x 7.92mm MGs – one in the original Tiger I hull position and a second in the stub turret under the launcher.

The model depicts the 2 HQ vehicle of the 3rd Battery, 1st Abteilung of the 10th Schwere Rakete Brigade and consists of a very old Tamiya Tiger I, some bits from the spares box, a lot of plastic card, some hard wood and some golf tees.

Friendly fire isn't and suppressive fire rarely does!

Federation of Germany Panther F with Gas Turbine that was in action with the Allies against the Soviet invaders in Late 1945. A new camo scheme was developed for these night fighting specialists to blend with their preferred ambush sites on the edge of forests. Fitted with all the latest Infrared gear they are very effective and when deployed own the night battlefield.. sadly they are very, very few in number.
