US Tanks & The Means To Destroy Them For Flames Of War

July 11, 2014 in Flames of War, Historical, News by brennon

Flames of War has some neat tank based releases for the middle of July and we’ll start things off by looking at Otto Carius and his rather cool looking Jagdtiger tank!

Carius

In the set you get Carius’ Jagdtiger and the crew that went with it as well as Carius himself on foot too. Carius was quite the tank commander and a war hero to the Germans. He even has a rule where if he dies the entire army takes a blow to their morale. Not only was he approached by Himmler to join the SS (which he refused) but he also had a bounty set on his head by the Russians!

M36B1 Jackson

M4 Sherman Crocodile

Aunt Jemima Mine Rollers

If you want to see if you can take Carius down then you could pick up either the Jackson Tank Destroyer which could potentially do the job. For dealing with those dug in infantry units then your best bet would be the Sherman Crocodile with its flamethrower. I remember using these a lot in Company of Heroes to get rid of those dug in German units.

Last but not least if you want to make sure the way is clear of mines laid by the enemy then you can pick up the Aunt Jemima Mine Roller (which does indeed look like a hair roller) to make a safe path for infantry and more.

A nice selection!
