PSC (Plastic Soldier Company) showed off some artwork on Facebook for a newly released box of interesting vehicles for the German Army in the North Africa campaign. I thought this was appropriate seeing that this weekend is going to be about the EL Alamein battles.
What you are looking at is a collection of heavy armoured reconnaissance cars, the German SdKfz 231 8 rad Armoured Car for the Afrika Korps around 1943 Tunisia with the 15th Panzer Division.
By the looks of them, one can not help to wonder how fast these vehicles really were. Remember an important trait of a good reconnaissance vehicle is the ability to get somewhere quietly and get out of trouble quickly.
I can also only imagine how hot it got inside of those machines baking in the Egyptian desert sun. For any of you, DAK fans out there you might want to keep your eyes out for this one. No word on a release date as of yet.
What do you think?
