All those tanks and armored vehicles running around in North Africa still required regular troopers to go along with them. Tanks might be formidable, but they can’t do everything, and your average rifle-carrying soldier is still an invaluable part of the military effort. In this Flames of War article, Battlefront is featuring their Afrika Korps Rifle Platton.

From the post:

After taking heavy casualties in the siege of Tobruk, infantry units in Africa were reorganised to have ‘fewer men, more weapons’. Each company was organised as a self-contained battlegroup with its own anti-tank and artillery capability. This allowed the tanks to operate independently from the infantry, giving them the freedom to manoeuvre against the enemy.
