Humber Scout Car (x3)
With three resin and metal Humber Scout Cars, drivers, and optional Bren guns
Unusually, the 11th Armoured Division’s armoured recce regiment, the 15th/19th Hussars, was equipped with a mix of Daimler and Humber scout cars, rather than Stuart light tanks, to scout ahead of the armoured column. Once on the German Autobahn, they were very fast.
The 15th/17th Hussars
The 15th/17th Hussars was the 11th Armoured Division’s armoured reconnaissance regiment. Armed with Cromwell and Challenger tanks, the unit joined the division just prior to Operation Market Garden. As the 15th/17th Hussars were not part of the 29th Armoured Brigade, they supported the 159th Infantry Brigade through the battles of the Reichwald. As such, they were the last unit to be e uipped with Comets, and even then there were not enough to go around. A and C Squadrons were equipped with Comets, while B Squadron had to make due with the older tanks.
B Squadron was given all of the regiment’s operable Challengers and then filled their ranks with the Cromwells in the best condition. The tanks were grouped into troops armed with the same type of tank. This allowed them to detach their Challengers and send them out to support the Comets and infantry of the division as needed.

BP44 Armoured Train Infantry Car
includes one Armoured Infantry Car.
With captured Polish and Russian trains as templates the Germans went about creating a standard model of armoured train in 1941. This was known as the BP42, and with later additions, the BP44. These new trains borrowed from the captured designs’ increased artillery capability over the existing German trains. They also overcame some of the perceived design flaws in the captured trains by splitting the artillery car in two, leaving only one gun on each car and thereby reducing loss of firepower if an artillery car was knocked out. Modern anti-aircraft guns and tank-hunter cars were also added making a formidable self-contained fighting unit.
