Cavalry Recon Platoon
includes one M8 Greyhound Armored Car & two Recon Jeeps.
The freshly arrived 14th Cavalry Group’s armoured cars, Stuart light tanks, and assault guns were all that stood in the way of the Germans at the Losheim Gap. They fought hard, but were eventually overrun. They then returned to the battle in support of the 7th Armored Division and by the end of the year they had received some of the new M24 Chaffee light tanks.
The Cavalry Recon Troop includes a veteran variant based loosely on the 2nd Cavalry Group, Patton’s Ghosts. This option is available for players who prefer more experienced troops to lead their charge!

8.8cm PaK43 Cruciform Mount (x2)
2 Guns, Crew, command team and plastic bases.
Resin Bases not included.
The PaK 43 (Panzerabwehrkanone 43) was a German 8.8cm anti-tank gun developed in competition to the Rheinmetall Flak 41 8.8cm anti-aircraft gun. Krupp’s Gerät 42 (designed as a replacement for the 8.8cm FlaK36) was developed into a dedicated anti-tank gun in 1943. Initially the design was to be on a low sitting cruciform mounting, this model simply known as the PaK43, but due to manufacturing constraints a simplified version mounted on the trail of a field gun was put into production as the PaK43/41 first. It weighed 4.9 tonnes. However later the complete cruciform mounted gun was eventually put into production. The main version of the PaK 43 was based on a highly efficient cruciform mount, which offered a full 360 degree traverse and a much lower profile than the anti-aircraft version of the 88. The PaK43 was able to penetrate about 200mm of armour at 1000m, letting it defeat any tank currently in service with the Allies. The barrel was 71 calibres long and the cartridge case was 822mm long.
