More D-Day Germans Available From Battlefront

The Germans had quite the production capabilities during WWII. They were able to churn out large amounts of vehicles, materials, and soldiers to continue their conquest of Europe (and the world!). When the Allies hit Normandy Beach, the Germans had quite a defense set up. Battlefront is bringing more of these D-Day Germans to your Flames of War tabletops, including a new Nebelwerfer, because you can't have a war without some werfed nebels.

About the releases:

Tiger Tank Platoon (Plastic) (GBX161)

The Tiger tank has such a reputation amongst Allied tankers, that any tank that held up their advance became a ‘Tiger’. With armour capable of stopping nearly all Allied anti-tank rounds, and a gun that penetrates Allied tanks with ease, its reputation is well deserved.

Fallschirmjäger StuG Assault Gun Platoon (Plastic) (GBX143)

The StuG (short for Sturmgeschütz, or assault gun) mounts the same 7.5cm gun as the Panzer IV tank, making it effective at both knocking out machine-guns to assist the infantry to advance and knocking out enemy tanks.

Sd Kfz 251 Transports (Plastic) (GBX152)

The Sd Kfz 251 half-track gives the panzergrenadiers the speed and armour to attack at the same pace as the panzers. Suppressing the enemy defences with their on-board weapons, the panzergrenadiers can be on top of the enemy positions before the defenders can reposition their reserves and bring fire to bear.

Gun Platoon - Mortar Section (Plastic) (GBX177)

The Sd Kfz 251/2 half-tracks from the heavy weapons platoon carry 8cm mortars in the passenger compartment to support the infantry with fast, accurate artillery fire. The half-tracks carry the weapon and ammunition together, ready and able to quickly provide support for the panzergrenadiers.

8.8cm Heavy AA Platoon (Plastic) (GBX149)

There are well over 100 heavy 8.8cm anti-aircraft guns in Normandy to keep the Allied air forces at bay. When needed, they are also capable of devastating Allied tank attacks.

10.5cm Artillery Battery (Plastic) (GBX145)

The 10.5cm leFH18 light field howitzer's main mission was to support German attacks and to shatter enemy counterattacks before they reached their objective. They also provided a base of fire in a last-ditch line of defence.

15cm Nebelwerfer Battery (Plastic) (GBX146)

The six-barrelled 15cm Nebelwerfer rocket launcher terrifies Allied soldiers, delivering six screaming rockets per launcher, scattering rockets, packed with 31.8 kg (70 lb) of high-explosives, across a wide area.

12cm Mortar Platoon (Plastic) (GE771)

The big regimental 12cm mortars fire a heavier bombardment at a longer range than the light 8cm mortars. However, they are less versatile as they lack the capability to fire smoke screens to blind the enemy as your troops manoeuvre.
