German Tank Hunters Roll Out To Stop The Soviets In Flames Of War

July 16, 2015 by brennon

Two new vehicle kits have popped up from Battlefront for Flames of War this week. With the Soviets pushing towards the gates of Berlin the Germans are rolling out the big tank hunters with both the Waffentrager and Kleinpanzer Wanze looking to blow up some armour…

Waffentrager

First up we have a set of three tank hunters each with guns that look like they should be firing at range, not straight down at an enemy tank across the battlefield.

While they look impressive it’s not entirely sure how many of these saw action as they were developed right at the end of the war period. Some were spotted and noted to have been destroyed in Berlin however so they do fit in with the current conflict.

Try them out and see if they work for you in defending the city.

Kleinpanzer Wanze

On a slightly smaller scale when it comes to guns we have these tanks for the Germans too.

Kleinpanzer WanzeThese tanks were designed for close quarters street fighting against armour. Each of them was outfitted with a bank of rockets and the vehicle itself could quickly dart in and out of cover to fire it’s payload before retreating to reload.

Quite a funky looking little vehicle and something closer to a Sci-Fi tank than a Historical one in design.

Will you be bolstering the German defences?
