The Flames of War website was updated with several new product spotlights and articles.

Spotlights
Flammwagen B-2(f) (Char B) (GE180)
In 1940, the Char B was the principal medium tank of the French army. Having fought against the Panzers in the Battle of France, the Germans were able to capture a number of Char B tanks after the French capitulation. These captured vehicles were pressed into service by the Germans as training vehicles or for duties behind the frontlines.

Airlanding Light Battery (BBX20)
When the British Airborne forces were formed a number of options were considered when looking for a suitable air-transportable light artillery piece. Initially the 3.7 inch howitzer was used, but the more modern M1A1 howitzer replaced this before any of the airborne artillery went into action.

Glider Pilot Platoon (BR808)
The glider pilots are attached from the Glider Pilot Regiment. After they land their gliders they are expected to lend aid where ever they can to protect the landing zones.

that was not the end of their service.
