Battlefront’s 15mm scale WWII game is adding more plastic & resin minis for the German treadheads out there.
Ferdinand Tank-hunter Platoon – $30.00
The Ferdinand Tank-hunter is a fearsome anti-tank vehicle. Not only a can-opener, the Ferdinand is unmatched in armour with 200mm (8″) of frontal armour. This protection will keep the tank in operation, even while under intense incoming fire. The 8.8cm Pak43 is the most powerful gun currently in service. This combined with its armour gives the Ferdinand dominance of the battlefield.
The 7.5cm gun version of the Panzer III proved an able support weapon but by the summer of 1943, despite its long and proven battle record, the tank was starting to show its age. To remedy this, it was uparmoured to bring it up to date. Ideally, the panzer divisions were meant to have two battalions of Panthers and one with Panzer IV tanks. While the tankers waited for the production lines to catch up with this demand, the units had to make do with older, but uparmoured, Panzer IIIs.
Panzer IV (Late) Tank Platoon – $45.00
Panzer IV tanks have received a new longer barrelled 7.5cm gun, making it ideal for taking out Soviet medium tanks. Like the Panzer III, the Panzer IV also received more frontal armour and sideskirts as well as Zimmerit paste applied to the body of the tank to prevent magnetic anti-tank weapons sticking effectively. More than capable of holding its own in battle, the Panzer IV would not be outshone by the Panther.
Brummbär Assault Tank Platoon – $30.00
The Brummbär’s mission is to blast an enormous hole in the enemy’s infantry and gun positions. To do this without being knocked out by enemy anti-tank guns, the Brummbär has over 100mm (4″) of frontal armour. The tank’s 15cm assault howitzer will have no problem shattering enemy fortifications. This is represented by its Brutal rating and AUTO firepower when used directly against dug in enemy units.
~All of these tanks feature in the upcoming Ghost Panzers supplement.
