Waffen-SS Section (Early War)
As Hitler's military machine unleashed their devastating assault on Poland in 1939, the SS were still in the process of transitioning from political to military organisation, becoming the Waffen-SS (armed SS) and the military wing of the Nazi party.
This box set contains a 10-man (all metal) section:
•1 NCO with SMG
•2-man LMG team
Well-supplied and well-led the fanatical Waffen-SS were an increasingly formidable fighting force. These controversial but elite troops were dogged by accusations of atrocities, particularly in Poland and on the Eastern Front during Operation Barbarossa.
Dressed in their trademark camouflage smocks and helmet covers, and with squads often built around the firepower of the reliable Czech-made CZ-26 light machine gun, the Waffen-SS were at the forefront of the German Blitzkrieg offensive in the early stages of World War II.
Models supplied unassembled and unpainted

Known as "Hitler's Buzzsaw" on account of its high rate of fire. The MG42 fired 1250 rounds/minute, more than twice that of the British Vickers Machine Gun and American Browning. Add this tremendous firepower to your Germans and give your infantry some much needed support.

StuG III Ausf. G
Beginning with the StuG III Ausf. G, a 7.92 mm MG34 could be mounted on a shield on top of the superstructure for added anti-infantry protection from December 1942. Some of the F/8 models were retrofitted with a shield as well. Many of the later StuG III Ausf. G models were equipped with an additional coaxial 7.92 mm MG34. By the end of the war, around 11,300 StuG IIIs and StuH 42s had been built.
