For protection? Protection from what? Ze Germans?
*looks at the new releases from Battlefront for Flames of War*
Oh, s---. Ok, maybe "Ze Germans" are here already. You can pick up some new reinforcements for your German D-Day forces now over in the Battlefront webshop or at your local LGS.
About the releases:
Grenadier Company (Plastic) (GBX170)
The troops assigned to defend the beaches of France against the Allied invasion had been deemed unfit for front-line service. They spent more of their time building fortifications than training, but their lack of combat skills mattered less when they stuck to their intended defensive role, but did limit their capability in offensive operations.
Panzergrenadier Platoon (Plastic) (GBX169)
The motorised panzergrenadier battalions have much more firepower than the rifle battalions of the infantry divisions, allowing them to launch attacks and counterattacks without the need to wait for outside support. When they have panzers and artillery attached, they are difficult to stop without a layered defence in depth.
sMG34 Machine-gun Platoon (Plastic) (GE784)
The sMG34 heavy machine-guns of the battalion machine-gun platoons form a base of fire for the infantry to operate around. They dig in and dominate the ground in front of them, pinning the enemy down so that the infantry can counterattack and wipe them out.
8cm Mortar Platoon (Plastic) (GE785)
The battalion mortar platoon reaches out and touches the enemy at long range, either bombarding their assembly areas to hinder their attacks, or knocking out their machine-guns.
