German Tank Destroyer Elefant
Tamiya's popular 1/48 Military Miniature Series features a broad line-up of models depicting historically important vehicles. This model is the first tank in current service - the Japanese Type 10 main battle tank. The model is not simply a smaller scale version of the 1/35 scale Type 10 (Item 35329) - it recreates a tank from the newer fourth production lot (C4), which was delivered from 2014 to Spring 2015 and featured a number of evolutions of the original design. The Type 10 was originally commissioned in 2010 and is a new cornerstone for the Japan Ground Self Defense Force (JGSDF) with Japanese-made 120mm main gun, modular armor, excellent maneuverability, and compatibility with the modern C4I network system.
