Germany’s standard heavy infantry gun throughout WWII was the schweres Infanterie Geschütz 33 (contracted to s.IG.33) of 15cm caliber. It was a larger counterpart to the 7.5cm le.IG.18 infantry gun. Approved for service in 1933, the s.IG.33 was originally designed to be horse-drawn although, at 1,750kg, the s.IG.33 was quite heavy for use by infantrymen. Nevertheless, it could fire 15cm rounds such as high explosive, smoke and hollow-charge (for the antitank role) to a maximum range of 4,700m.

After previously releasing a 1/35 scale towed version of the s.IG.33, Dragon is pleased to now release the earlier horse-drawn type. The new Smart kit of the s.IG.33 for carriage by horses has new wooden wheels – produced by slide mold – rather than the pressed-steel wheels clad in solid rubber tires employed on the motorized towed version. The kit includes an aluminum gun barrel with realistically rendered rifling. The detailed hydraulic recoil system allows the gun to be posed in normal position or in full recoil, plus different elevations for the gun barrel can be chosen. The breech can also be shown open or closed, depending on which part the modeler selects. The highly detailed gun kit comes replete with a number of accessories such as DS parts like protective ammo wicker cases and wicker ground mats. As a bonus to the 15cm ammo rounds already on offer, the kit even boasts Stielgranate 42 ‘stick bomb’ demolition rounds. For modelers wanting to add some ‘horsepower’ to their diorama, this is a masterfully produced kit of an important German artillery piece.

This kit's main features:
- Brand new wheels
- Aluminum gun with rifling
- Muzzle-loaded Stielgranate 42 "Stick Bomb" is included
- Realistic Gun recoils
- DS protective wicker cases for rounds and wicker ground mats as Bonus!
