More D-Day Germans Available For Flames of War from Battlefront

The Germans are lining the beaches, looking across the English Channel, waiting for the Allies to make a play at taking their control away from mainland Europe. They're well equipped, with all manner of different weapons ready for action. This week's set of releases for Flames of War from Battlefront includes some anti-armor elements.

From the announcement:

8.8cm Tank-hunter Platoon (Plastic) (GBX175)

The new 8.8cm anti-tank gun is a tremendously powerful gun, capable of destroying any tank on the battlefield. The latest version is mounted on a cruciform chassis like the famous 8.8cm anti-aircraft gun, but is much easier to conceal.

Puma Scout Troop (Plastic) (GBX172)

With their 5cm guns, the big eight-wheeled Puma give the light armoured cars of the armoured reconnaissance battalions some heavier back up. However, worried that commanders would start fights rather than scouting as they are supposed to, later production switched to the Sd Kfz 234/1 with a 2cm gun.

7.5cm Tank Hunter Platoon (Plastic) (GBX148)

No anti-tank gun has earned its reputation more than the 7.5cm PaK40. These guns started to arrive in large numbers on the front by the start of 1944, replacing the older 5cm guns.
