More D-Day Germans Available for Flames of War From Battlefront

I'm sure when the Allies hit the Normandy beach during D-Day, they thought that the waves of German troops would never end. And that's how it feels with these posts. We've got yet more German forces that you can add to your Flames of War armies.

From the announcement:

Jagdpanzer IV Platoon (GBX151)

The Jagdpanzer IV is the first fully-armoured specialist tank-hunter to enter mass production. Combining the mobility and firepower of the Panzer IV tank in a low-slung, well-armoured chassis, the Jagdpanzer is well suited to its role.

Hummel Artillery Battery (GBX158)

The Hummel (Bumblebee) has seen extensive since Kursk, where it entered service. Built on the Panzer IV chassis, the Hummel mounts a powerful 15cm howitzer that gives excellent service in support of panzer attacks.

Wespe Artillery Battery (GBX155)

The Wespe (Wasp) self-propelled howitzer first saw action at Kursk in 1943. Based on the reliable Panzer II chassis, the vehicle quickly proved itself well suited for supporting armoured units. Its weapon is the standard 10.5cm howitzer, which provides powerful mobile artillery firepower to the panzer divisions they support.

Sd Kfz 7/1 Quad AA Platoon (GBX159)

The Sd Kfz 7/1 half-track is armed with quadruple- mounted 20mm anti-aircraft guns, giving each vehicle a tremendous rate of fire of 1800 rounds per minute. With that much fire in the sky, any Allied aircraft will have a very difficult time attacking panzer spearheads.
