At last a splendid new Command group to lead your metal and plastic Wehrmacht warriors to victory! This splendid pack has four crucial men to make your squads perform to their maximum potential. There are two Officers – can represent a junior officer or a more senior position in the field.
• A classic German Officer, leaning forward with a pistol outstretched.
• A tough looking officer, in combat smock and tooled up with the fearsome ‘broom-handleb Mauser automatic and wooden stock.
• A radio operator/forward observer who is lying down in cover whilst firing a signal flare, perhaps calling down a barrage or directing incoming Stukas…
• The brave medic, with his red cross tabard and clutching his helmet to his head and his bag of tools, running to give help to the wounded that litter the battlefield.
The German Light infantry support gun 18 was a short-barreled 75mm howitzer. It was used throughout the war in most theatres and gave good quality, much needed support to the hard-pressed infantry. It could be towed by light tractor, or even pulled by hand into position where its low profile, small size and rapid fire made it a useful addition to the frontline strength.
Warlord’s model captures its stubby outline nicely and with its action packed 3 man crew is a no-brainer to add to any force.
