Leading the way, we have the Churchill GC 3-inch Gun Troop that is ready to support your infantry on the tabletop. They could be used as an opponent to the German Tiger that had found its way onto the battlefields of Tunisia.

Following on from the Churchill, we also have another big and heavy piece of armour to throw onto the tabletop. Here we have the TOG 2 Armoured Troop.

"The Old Gang" is a mix of the old and the new. It uses classic design techniques from earlier in the war and then combines it with what's needed during the war in the desert. This is very much taking the idea of a landship and making it a reality. You wouldn't want to show off your side to your enemies considering the length of this thing!

We move away from heavy tanks and instead look to scouting vehicles next. Here is the Boarhound Armoured Car Troop.

A lot of folks wanted to get their hands on these during World War II and their success on the battlefield had the army clamouring for more. However, high production costs meant that only thirty of them were ever delivered. I really like Armoured Cars as they always feel like the closest to more modern military vehicles. Plus, they are fast!

Now, a little bit of a mix of both American and British goodness. Here we have the T14 Armoured Assault Troop.

Combining the need for a new assault vehicle and a heavier tank, this vehicle was very handy for both the British and the US during World War II. The T14 was a mix of both American and British engineering and was able to fulfil both needs. It was a handy option to have in the back pocket for the Allies.

New German Vehicles

As well as the British and the US, we also have some options for the Germans that are taking them to task on the sands of the desert.

You can use the 15cm Bison Infantry Gun Platoon to support your forces as they rush forward into battle. This vehicle was used as a quicker support option thanks to the lighter gun. It could keep up with the infantry advance and provide fire where it was needed, moving from spot to spot. It was very handy for heavy close support.

Last but not least, we have the Tiger (P) Heavy Tank Platoon. Phwoar...

These tanks were deadly and the air-cooled engines made them well suited to the desert conditions. They were armed with deadly guns capable of punishing tanks, artillery support and dug-in infantry units. It was also pretty agile for such a big tank but suffered from being unreliable and couldn't keep up with some of the faster tanks. Still, it's a Tiger. It's a big, mean, killing machine.
