Description

The A7V was a heavy tank introduced by Germany in 1918 during World War I. One hundred chassis were ordered in early 1917, ten to be finished as fighting vehicles with armoured bodies, and the remainder as Überlandwagen cargo carriers. The number to be armoured was later increased to 20. They were used in action from March to October 1918, and were the only tanks produced by Germany in World War I to be used in combat.

This kit reporduces the German A7V "Schnuck". After a defect of chassis 544, its structure was set to chassis 504 (Schnuck). Damaged by friendly fire at Fremicourt on 31 August 1918 it was abandoned by crew, and captured by troops of the New Zealand Division three days later. Displayed in London on Horse Guards Parade 1918/19 and given to the Imperial War Museum in 1919 but disposed of in 1922 with only the main gun kept.

The sole surviving A7V tank in the world known as 'Mephisto' was immobilised in an area close to Villers-Bretonneux and was sent to Australia as a war trophy. The A7V is now on display at the Queensland Museum Brisbane.
