British Army Support Group

View in Store

The British Tommy faced his Axis adversaries throughout the war with tenacity, bravery and his legendary love of a ‘brew’.

After years of fighting in North Africa and the Far East the British Army set foot back in Europe with the invasion of Sicily and Italy. In 1944 they spearheaded the D-Day landings in Normandy before pushing on into the German homeland and ultimate victory.

British soldiers made good use of the water-cooled Vickers machine gun – the same weapon their fathers use in the Great War – and the 3″ mortar.

Suffering heavy casualties in the assault on Crete during Operation Mercury, Adolf Hitler forbade German airborne troops from further airdrops.

The Fallschirmjager instead acted as elite infantry serving in all theatres in which Germany fought. Supported by two weapons with a high rate of fire – the deadly MG42 general purpose machine gun and the Granatwerfer 34 8cm medium mortar – they were respected by the Allies for their fighting ability and honourable actions.

  • 2 officers

Waffen-SS Support Group

The armed wing of the Nazi Party, the extremely well-equipped Waffern-SS were rightly feared by their opponents – both for their fighting ability and uncompromising ferocity.

Supported by two weapons with a high rate of fire – the deadly MG42 medium machine gun (nicknamed Hitler’s Buzzsaw by the allies) and the Granatwerfer 34 8cm medium mortar – the Waffen-SS, in their trademark camouflaged uniforms were a truly dangerous foe to face.

Contains:

  • 2 officers
  • 1 Medic
  • 1 2-man Forward Observer team
  • 1 medium mortar team
  • 1 MG42 MMG team
  • Bases
