PanzerShop updates its line of complete resin kits with a model of the Soviet 240mm self-propelled mortar.
Developed during the late 1960s the 2S4 Tyulpan (Tulip) is a heavy, self-propelled mortar that was in service with the Soviet Army early the following decade. Mounting a 240mm breech-loading mortar, the 2S4 fires a variety of mines including HE, anti-armor, and chemical. It is also capable of firing laser-guided munitions, and there have been claims that the 2S4 has the capability to fire mines with nuclear warheads. Around 400 are estimated to have been built.
2S4 Tulip Self-propelled Heavy Mortar (PS35C185) is offered as a complete multi-media kit in 1/35 scale. The kit contains resin and photo-etched parts as well as a metal barrel.
