Armoured Cars & AA Take To The Battlefield For Flames Of War

June 9, 2017 by brennon

Battlefront is going to soon be adding to the battlefields of the Desert War in World War II with some new vehicles and options for Flames Of War. We start off with the Humber Armoured Car Troop.

These vehicles, apart from looking rather cool, were the best of the best during the period and would routinely be sent out on recon missions to try and spot where the enemy was holed up. The 15mm Besa machine gun mounted on the top was also hell for light vehicles to deal with.

Armoured Cars fulfilled the role of old school light cavalry, harassing the enemy and chasing them during a rout.

Additionally, for the British, we have the Bofors Light AA Troop which will begin to hold the aircraft at bay as they fly above you.

These guns were quick-firing and able to deal a significant amount of damage to the German aircraft as they tried to take out dug in troops. Of course, you might even be able to turn them against ground targets too.

German Response

The Germans also have the Sd Kfz 10 4 2cm Light AA Platoon which makes for great AA as it can move around the tabletop to answer questions offered up by the enemy.

The half-track was also a good choice for those out there in the desert as it could hold its own on the terrain out there which was incredibly unforgiving.

What do you think of these new releases?
