Revell Sd. Kfz. 173 Jagdpanther of Abteilung 654 in 1/72 Scale

Schwere Panzerjäger-Abteilung 654 was the first unit which was equipped with the Jagdpanther, receiving the first two vehicles in March 1944.  In June it was deployed to Normandy, having only eight vehicles in total.  Their first combat action occurred on 30JUL44 near Saint Marting Du Bois.  Three 2. Kompanie Jagdpanthers engaged British Churchills of the 3rd Tank Battalion (Scots Guards), destroying eleven Churchills.  Another column of Churchills managed to flank the Jagdpanthers, disabling two and a battalion command tank.  The model represents a 2. Kompanie Jagdpanther from this engagement.
