Prepare for an intense battle with the German Heer Begleit Stug riders! Protecting their Stug as it advances on your enemies…
As Stugs lacked a turret they could prove very vulnerable to enemy tank-hunting squads, so at Kursk, they were assigned Begleit (‘bodyguard’) infantry to ride on their rear decks.
The Begleit would disembark to clean out enemy infantry positions and keep tank hunters at bay, leaving the Stugs free to concentrate their fire on more valuable targets.
These 5 metal models have had a lot of detail and thought added to them & will fit on most German armoured vehicles, really helping you theme your force for those wintery battlefields.
