Dragon has just announced a combo box containing their SdKfz 7 8t halftrack and sFH18 howitzer.

Looks like they are still trying to stay relevant and making an attempt to offer more value than they have been doing the last few years. I'd rather they reissue their Bf 110 nightfighter or an all-new piece of armor, but hopefully this release will make someone happy.

I wish they had continued with their Sd.Kfz.7 and instead of reboxing they release an armored Bunkerknacker variant with the 88.

It would be nice if Dragon had explored finishing up the families/variants of their vehicles other than their Pz IIIs abd IVs. Since makers like Miniart are starting to go in this direction (like their T-55 series) it would seem to make sense to work all the potential out of those molds.

Kit number is 6918 for those who want to look it up. Doesn't look like anything extra will be added.
