Afrika Korps 5cm Tank-Hunter Platoon
includes three plastic 5cm Tank-hunter guns, three plastic Gun Crew sprues, three medium five-hole bases, one base plug sprue and one Unit card.
The 5cm PaK38 anti-tank gun defends the rifle company against enemy tanks. Whether entrenched in a defensive position or being dragged forward in an attack, the PaK38 is useful against any type of threat.
The 5cm Tank-Hunter
After the Spanish Civil War, the German authorities started to think that a new anti-tank gun would be needed, even though the 3.7 cm Pak 36 had proven to be very successful. They asked Rheinmetall-Borsig to produce a new and more capable AT-gun. The 5 cm PaK 38 was approved for mass production in 1939.
Armor-piercing projectiles fired by this gun were known to pierce the armor of British infantry and cruiser tanks as well as that of U.S. light and medium tanks.
The gun proved especially effective in jamming tank turrets by hits at the junction of the turret and hull. These hits fuse the metal of the two parts together and immobilize the turret.
The guns low profile and size made it particularly difficult to spot often allowing it to get the first shot off against enemy tanks.

Artillery Template (V4)
includes one plastic Artillery Template.
Artillery and aircraft are not precision weapons. Their shells and bombs blanket a wide area, possibly wiping out dozens of the enemy at a time. Artillery Templates make it easy to work out who is hit, and who isn’t when you introduce these weapons into your games.
German Panzer III J,L,M & N (x5)
Easy Assembly plastic injection moulded 15mm German Panzer III Ausf. J, L, M, N tank. Five vehicles in the box and each sprue gives options to build either an early J, late J, M, N or Flammpanzer and comes with 2 crew figures, Schürzen and a variety of stowage.
Desert Rats Humber Armoured Car Troop
includes three resin Humber cars, one plastic Tank Commander sprue and one Unit card.
The Humber is one of the most successful British armoured car designs. While its real job is reconnaissance, its 15mm Besa machine-gun poses a serious danger to lightly armoured targets.
Desert Rats Universal Carrier Patrols
includes nine plastic Universal Carriers, three plastic Crew sprues, one decal sheet and three Unit cards.
Each motor company includes a scout platoon of Universal Carriers. This versatile vehicle is commonly called a Bren Gun Carrier, which was the first variant developed, even though it has since evolved into a more general-purpose vehicle. Their usual job is scouting No Man's Land to reconnoitre enemy positions. They are also good for protecting the flanks as a mobile reserve, delivering extra firepower where it is most needed.
