GERMAN

PANZERKOMPANIE 

 

~1943 - 45 ~

.

My late war German panzerkompanie is not, perhaps appropriately, homogenous in terms of camouflage and colour schemes. Collected bit by bit over a number of years, and from a variety of manufacturers, it is as far from a parade ground formation as you can get.

It does, however, pack a powerful punch. The Panthers that form the core of the armour are damn good tanks:  a good gun, good mobility and good armour. Provided they are not crippled by the inclusion of a Fuel Shortage or Vehicle Breakdown card, there's not a lot of Allied tanks they are afraid of. Add in the Panzer IIIs and IVs for the numbers, the Tigers of the Schwerer Zug, the numerous tank-hunters and anti-tank guns, and you have a force that can stop anything. It's just a pity they are usually outnumbered five to one and keep breaking down!

The Panthers and Panzer IVs are from Plastic Soldier Company, except for the command Panther, which is Battlefront. All of the other vehicles are Battlefront.
