Flames Of War Germans Strike Back With Jagdpanthers & More!

February 12, 2015 by brennon

The folks at Battlefront have bought forth more German reinforcements for Flames of War. Not only are they rolling out the armour with the Panther/Jagdpanther Platoon but also the combined mechanised might of the Sd Kfz 251 Transport Platoon and the Panzersturm Platoon too…

These were some powerful tanks and well loved by the Germans. The sloped armour on the front of the Jadgpanther for example is enough to reflect even the most deadly guns. As well as the big guns they also have some added machine gun support making these quite the deadly force on the battlefield.

By comparison these small Half-Tracks probably don’t look like much but they were incredibly helpful in fielding soldiers around the battlefield. Assault infantry would gather up inside these and hit locations with deadly force. Mobility, firepower and speed make these perfect for getting troops across enemy held lands.

If you’re looking for some deadly soldiers to join you in your mechanised assault on the enemy base then this Panzersturm Platoon could be the set of soldiers for you. These chaps worked well with the Half-Tracks as they would get close and provide covering fire as the soldiers jumped out and stormed the enemy position. If there was enemy armour they also had the panzerfaust to deal with that too.

Some pretty deadly Germans and two of the sets in plastic. Not a bad haul!
