Jaguar Jagdpanzer Zug (TGBX04) Jaguar Jagdpanzer Zug (TGBX04)

The Jaguar 1 and Jaguar 2 were West German tank destroyers armed with anti-tank guided missiles. The Jaguar 1, armed with the advanced HOT missile system, supports your Panzer Kompanie. The Jaguar 2, with the older US-made Improved TOW missile system, can support your Panzergrenadier Kompanie.

M113 Panzermörser Zug (TGBX09)

The panzergrenadier battalions had their very own artillery in the form of 120mm M120 mortars mounted in modified M113 armoured personnel carriers. The main advantages of these Panzermörser (Armoured Mortars) are there mobility and immediate tactical availability. A company commander can request fire as required. For this reason the mortars are nicknamed ‘die kleine Artillerie’ (the little artillery).

PAH Anti-tank Helicopter Flight (TGBX12) PAH Anti-tank Helicopter Flight (TGBX12)

The Bölkow Bo-105P was selected as the German PAH anti-tank helicopter due to its outstanding manoeuvrability. It is armed with six wire-guided HOT anti-tank missiles, three mounted on each side. Flying below the tree line, it can sneak up to a firing position unseen, then unleash a deadly attack to smash a Soviet spearhead.

TANKS
Soviets in TANKS

Comrade soldiers! Today we fight for the very survival of International Communism and for the soul of the Motherland. The long struggle for the freedom of the workers and peasants continues as our glorious Workers’ and Peasants’ Red Army, smashes the fascist hordes, annihilating them where they stand and pursuing them to the viper’s nest from whence they came! This week Andrew talks about how the Soviets work in tanks and shares with us one of his TANKS army lists.
