New: Belgian FRC 76mm mortar!

Following hot on the heels of our new Belgian FRC 47mm anti-tank gun is this tasty 76mm mortar. Although mostly used in mortar mode it could also be used as an infantry gun, firing over open sights…

The Canon de 76 FRC was a Belgian infantry support gun, Produced by the Fonderie Royale des Canons (FRC), the Canon de 76 FRC was usually a 76mm calibre weapon but there were also an optional 47mm barrel which could also be fitted. Captured by the German forces sweeping through Belgium and the Low Countries, the gun was redesignated as 7.6 cm IG 260(b) by the Wehrmacht. This would be an unusual addition to your German forces with Wehrmacht crew!

As you can see from the photos here, the crew use our Figure Head system and are therefore available as either Chasseurs Ardennais or regular Belgian Army troops.

The FRC 76mm was designed to be trailer wtowed and as luck would have it we have just the vehicle to pull your guns into the thick of the action…

And it would be rude of us not to remind you of our Belgian paint set – all the colours you’ll need to get your army onto the tabletop without the need to trawl through paint lists.

That’s not all for those of you collecting a Belgian army for WWII – more on the way soon…
