In the Nick of Time
The SU-76M filled an important and particularly pressing Soviet need for an effective self-propelled gun against invading German forces after the start of Operation Barbarossa in WWII. Based upon the T-70 light tank chassis, it was production-friendly and some 11,000 were manufactured between 1943 and 1945. Its 76.2mm ZiS-3 gun helped it to play a valuable part offering supporting fire and as an anti-tank weapon. Superior mobility was its calling card, and the SU-76M was also able to operate in close unison with infantry units.
About the Model

- Realistic assembly type tracks feature one-piece straight sections and jig for construction.
- Contains three figures in authentic pose, and comes with two marking options.
- A job worth doing is a job well done! Exhaustive study of the SU-76M led to this accurate depiction of its no-frills makeup.

- Assembly type track parts offer a convincingly realistic finish, and a jig is included to make sure the track sag is just so.

- The open top of the SU-76M handily allows appreciation of an impressive interior, with gun breech, shell racks and more rendered realistically.
