First announced during the 2017 Nurember Toy Fair, Amusing Hobby provides us a peek at what is inside the box.
In early 1943, Krupp proposed to mount a 30.5cm L/16 mortar in an enclosed superstructure, and that by May of the same year, resulted in a conceptual design known as the Bär (Bear). The gun would have an elevation arc of 0 to 70 degrees and a limited traverse of 2 degrees right or left. It should be capable of firing two types of shells: high-explosive and concrete-piercing munitions. The vehicle would be well protected by having 130mm armor on its upper hull, 80mm on its sides, and 50mm on top. The vehicle however did not progress beyond the design stage as a competing design being worked on by Alkett was chosen and eventually produced as the Sturmmörser on the Tiger I chassis.

Amusing Hobby’s 30.cm Mörser Bär (35A014) is offered as an injection molded kit in 1/35 scale. The kit features photo-etched parts and individual track links.

Background information on the vehicle sourced from Panzer Tracts.
