BM-13 Katyusha was greatly feared by German infantry. A battery of four BM-13 launchers could fire a salvo in 7–10 seconds that delivered 4.35 tons of high explosives over a 400,000-square-metre (4,300,000-sq-ft) impact zone, an effect roughly equivalent to that of 72 conventional guns. Katyusha batteries were often massed in very large numbers, with devastating effect. The distinctive howl of the rockets added to the psychological impact of the weapon. The Germans nicknamed the Katyusha “Stalinorgel” (“Stalin’s organ”), because of the launcher’s supposed resemblance to a church organ.
This highly detailed plastic kit depicts a BM-13N Katyusha, comprising a Studebaker US6 6x6 truck with a rotating and elevating rocket launcher.

The T-34 was a Soviet medium tank which had a profound and permanent effect on the fields of tank tactics and design. First deployed in 1940, it has often been described as the most effective, efficient, and influential design of World War II. At its introduction, the T-34 possessed the best balance of firepower, mobility, protection, and ruggedness of any tank. Its 76.2 mm (3 in) high-velocity gun was the best tank gun in the world at that time; its heavy sloped armour was impenetrable by standard anti-tank weapons; and it was very agile. Though its armour and armament were surpassed later in the war, when they first encountered it in battle in 1941 German tank generals von Kleist and Guderian called it "the deadliest tank in the world.”
The T-34 was the mainstay of Soviet armoured forces throughout World War II. The design and construction of the tank were continuously refined during the war to enhance effectiveness and decrease costs, allowing steadily greater numbers of T-34s to be fielded despite heavy losses.
It was the most-produced tank of the war, over 33,805 were produced.
With this Rubicon model kit, you can assemble the T-34/76 into either a Model 1940, 1941, or 1942 version of the tank. It comes with 2 gun, 2 turret, 2 hull and 2 road wheel choices.

The T-34 had well-sloped armour, a relatively powerful engine, and wide tracks. The initial T-34 version had a powerful 76.2 mm gun, and is often called the T-34/76. In 1944, a second major version began production, the T-34/85, with a larger 85 mm gun intended to deal with newer German tanks.
The German Tiger I tank appeared on the Eastern Front in late 1942, as a response to the T-34. Soviet firing tests against a captured Tiger in April 1943 showed that the T-34’s 76 mm gun could not penetrate the front of the Tiger I at all, and the side only at very close range. An existing Soviet 85 mm anti aircraft gun, the 52-K, was found to be very effective against the frontal armour of the Tiger I, and so a derivative of the 52-K was developed for tanks.
In 1943, T-34 production had reached an average of 1,300 per month; this was the equivalent of three full-strength Panzer divisions. By the end of 1945, over 57,300 T-34s had been built: 34,780 T-34 tanks in multiple variants with 76.2 mm guns in 1940–44, and another 22,609 of the revised T-34/85 model in 1944–45.
The improved T-34-85 became the standard Soviet medium tank, with an uninterrupted production run until the end of the war.
With this Rubicon model kit, you can assemble the T-34/85 into either a Model 1943 or 1944 version of the tank. It comes with 2 turret top and 2 mantlet choices with oil drums & accessories options; and can be built as an OT-34/85 flamethrower tank as an option.
