Actually, this is important because Trumpy released a "late" version that is mainly for hauling, and the "bunker buster" mounting an 88. These vehicles were important towing workhorses for German heavy artillery, and I'm for one glad to see it now in styrene.

I feel your pain!
I feel exactly the same way when extremely interesting Russian AA or radar systems are released in 1/72 scale ....
