German Panzer II  6th Pz. Div. Kursk, USSR,Operation Zitadelle 1943

 Diecast Model

Krupp Sd.Kfz.121 Panzer II F
Designed to fill a gap in the production of the Panzer III and Panzer IV tanks, which were lagging behind in development, the Panzer II or Panzerkampfwagen II was first tested in October 1935. Larger than its predecessor, the Panzer I, the Panzer II was Germany's main battle tank until early 1941, but it was nevertheless quite ineffective in combat. It was really better suited for use as a light reconnaissance tank, and is particularly important because of the role it played in the development of more powerful Panzers thereafter. Panzer IIs were withdrawn from the front lines in 1942.

Beginning on July 4, 1943, German forces launched an offensive known as Operation Zitadelle (Citadel) against Soviet forces in the Kursk region. The Germans anticipated a Soviet offensive and hoped that Zitadelle would encircle large numbers of Soviet troops and equipment, weakening their enemy sufficiently to tip the balance of power in their favor. Instead of a great German success, Operation Zitadelle began what became the Battle of Kursk with heavy German casualties that they could not afford. The Soviets had received advance information about the attack and were prepared. This was the last German offensive in Eastern Europe.
