Spotlights
29th Infantry Division Assault Company (UBX09)

LCVP Boat Section (UBX08)
Landing on the beaches under enemy requires not only well trained and equiped troops, but also specialist landing craft capable of delivering troops and then returning to sea for another load. The LCVP was crucical in ensuring the sucessful landings on D-Day as well as many other amphibious assaults during the war.

Panzer III E (GE030)
The design of the Panzer III came about due to the necessity of mounting a 50mm gun in order to counter the British 2pdr gun and the Soviet 45mm gun. Initially, due to the need to standardise weapons and ammunition with the infantry a 37mm gun was agreed upon.

Machine-gun Platoon (GE754)
Armed with the versatile MG34, the HMG platoons of the German army were able to pour fire into an enemy to either suppress them in attack or pin them down in defence.

Most Schützen battalions have a weak machine-gun platoon in each company and a further company of two machine-gun platoons and a battery of six 8cm sGW34 schwere Granatwerfer heavy mortars.

German High Command recognised the need for a specialised vehicle capable of engaging enemy heavy tanks with a weapon of greater penetrating power than the standard 3.7cm PaK36.

15cm sIG33 auf Panzer I (GE140) with two vehicles.
The 15cm sIG33 auf Panzer I was an attempt to make the 15cm infantry gun more mobile for attacks on bunkers and fortified buildings – a need highlighted in the Polish Campaign. The result was a devastating weapon for the short-range destruction of guns and fortifications.
