Motor Platoon (8th Army)
with Trucked or Lorried options
Along with the Royal Horse Artillery, the Rifle Brigade plays a vital role in modern mobile warfare. We provide the foundation on which the tanks manoeuvre.
Lorried Motor Platoon
The riflemen of the Motor Platoons use their mobility to take their objective before digging in with their supporting anti-tank guns to hold it against enemy counter-attacks.
Trucked Motor Platoon
After the defeat at Gazala some Motor Battalions were reorganised to use two 3-ton lorries rather than four small 15 cwt trucks. This reduced the amount of petrol and other supplies (not to mention drivers and mechanics) needed to keep the battalion in battle.
The pack contains all the miniatures your need to field either the Trucked Motor Platoon or the Lorried Motor Platoon, all you need to do is choose your transport.
In Flames Of War
Used as part of the building blocks of a Motor Company they make a potent force, with mobility, fire-power and high morale. Combine them with tanks, artillery and anti-tank guns for best results.
