Is is their tradition on Fridays, Warlord Games has opened the flood gates and has a whole new flood of figures available. This time around, we’ve got new German units for Konflikt ’47, several new American releases for Bolt Action (including new bundles), and a new mounted unit for Pike & Shotte. Let’s take a deeper look.
Lead from the front lines with the German Heavy Armour Platoon Officer and provide medical support using the German Specialist medic.
The LVT(A)-1 was the first dedicated infantry support Landing Vehicle Tracked. Based on the LVT-2 (the A standing for armoured), this armoured fire support version had a turret similar to the M3 light tank, with a 37 mm gun whilst also mounting two machine guns in turrets just behind the main gun. It had a quite respectable speed of 25 mph or land and 6.5 mph in water, and an operational range of 125 miles on land or 75 miles in water.
As the re-taking of the islands continued in the Pacific it was quickly realised that the 37mm of the LVT(A)-1 didn’t quite have the firepower needed to dig out an entrenched enemy. The need for a heavier fire support version saw the turret of the 75 mm Howitzer M8 being fitted to the LVT-2 hull producing the LVT(A)-4.
Semper Fidelis! With the release of the LVT(A)-1 & LVT(A)-4, what better time to begin your Pacific in Flames campaign, than with these excellent USMC sets…
Lead the charge with the new Wars of Religion Mounted Gendarmes.
