The S-400 Triumph (NATO reporting name: SA-21 Growler), previously known as S-300PMU-3, is an anti-aircraft weapon system developed by Russia’s Almaz Central Design Bureau in the 1990s as an upgrade of the S-300 family. It has been in service with the Russian Armed Forces since 2007.
The development of the S-400 system began in the late 1990s. The system was formally announced by the Russian Air Force in January 1999. On 12 February 1999, the first tests were performed at Kapustin Yar inAstrakhanwhich were reported successful. As a result of this, the S-400 was scheduled for deployment in the Russian army in 2001.
The completion of the project was announced in February 2004. In April, a ballistic missile was intercepted in a test of the upgraded 48N6DM interceptor missile. Officially accepted for service in 2007.

Used in Finland during the Continuation War (1941-44), the BT-42 assault gun was something of a hybrid designed to overcome Finland’s shortage of AFVs. It mated hulls from captured Soviet BT-7 Model 1937 light tanks with British 4.5-inch howitzers. These QF 4.5-inch Mk.II guns had been donated to Finland when it was fighting Russia during the Winter War (1939-40), and they were fitted in newly designed turrets. They entered service in 1943.
It is a completely new subject in the 1/72 scale Dragon Armor Pro series. It features brand new tooling that have been leveraged for the best possible levels of accuracy and easy assembly. The upper hull, lower hull and turret, for example, are all produced as one-piece components via slide-mold technology. The whole plastic kit is a perfect blend of detail and convenience. This is exemplified by the one-piece DS tracks, which are even detachable just as they were on the original assault gun. Although the novel BT-42 was a desperate Finnish design used in combat during WWII, this kit marks the exciting start of its new modeling career.

This 1/35 scale IDF 1/4-Ton 4×4 Truck inherits the excellent foundational features of Dragon’s Truck before. However, it has been suitably modified to represent a jeep used by Israel. The model features a solid one-piece body tub that ensures accurate alignment. There are many new parts to help create the IDF variant, including a stowage box on one side of the rear compartment and a radio and antenna on the other. Perhaps the most notable feature of this vehicle is the mounting of two ex-German MG34 machine guns, one in front of the co-driver and another in the rear. The rear gunner is also provided with a bench seat. This is an exciting modification of the famous 4×4 American vehicle, now available with an Israeli twist for the first time in Dragon’s range.
– MG mounts are new
– Detailed MG34 machine gun
– New-tooled Box
– New bench seat for MG gunner
– New-tooled Radio & antenna
– Wire – Cutter on front part
– Spare wheel in new position
– Photo-Etched parts included

The Panzerbefehlswagen Ausf.K was designed to serve as a command tank for the German Army but, unlike preceding Panzer III command vehicles, it retained a main armament in the form of a 5cm KwK39 L/60 cannon. A total of 50 of these armed command tanks were produced between December 1942 and February 1943. It was based on a standard Panzer III Ausf.M chassis, and a star antenna was used instead of the previously favored frame antenna. The turret, adopted from a Panzer IV Ausf.F, featured a shorter mantlet, while the coaxial machine gun was deleted and an extra visor was added to the turret front.
Dragon previously released a Pz.Bef.Wg.III Ausf.K (Item No. 9118 in the Orange Box range), but this latest 1/35 scale kit has nothing in common with that release. Thus, the new command tank takes the most updated components from the latest Panzer III and IV kits in Dragon’s Smart Kit range to ensure that this fine new kit is of the highest quality. Besides, the horizontal upper-hull plate is new to fit the larger Panzer IV turret that was installed, plus the turret frontal armor, truncated gun mantlet and visor are new. Also new is the superstructure frontal armor plate plus three spare antennas stowed on the right-hand fender.Text Modelers seeking something a little different from a run-of-the-mill Panzer III need look no farther than this well-armed command tank.
– Antenna with photo etched part
– New turret frontal armor
– New spare antennas
– DS track for easy assembly
– New visor on mantlet
– New-tooled upper hull plate
– New gun mantlet
– New superstructure frontal armor
M4 Early VVSS 105 mm Sherman Conversion (TAS/ASU)
This conversion kit is designed to work with Asuka kit, 35-034 ‘China Clipper.’ However, it can be used with any Taska/Asuka large hull hatch VVSS M4 kit, or any Taska/Asuka VVSS M4 kit if you also purchase TMD’s large hull hatches to go with it.
This conversion is designed to fill a gap in the market by making it possible to build a highly accurate, early VVSS 105 mm M4 Sherman.
