10.5cm FlaK39 (GE552)
The 10.5 cm FlaK 39 was an anti-aircraft gun used by the Luftwaffe. It was an improved version of the FlaK 38, with an improved gun-laying system. Initially introduced as a competitor to the 8.8cm Flak gun (the infamous 'eighty-eight'), it proved too heavy for general field use and was mainly used in static mounts. However, some Luftwaffe Heavy Anti-aircraft Batteries did put the FlaK39 to good use..

Across the Rhine
We have had stacks of entries in our Facebook photo contest. There are some fantastic-looking photos, so even if you don't want to enter a photo of your British or German force, make sure you head on over and check out the entries. And remember to 'Like' your favourites. We would love to 'Like' some ourselves, but that doesn't seem fair.

The winner will receive a plastic Panther/Jagdpanther Platoon and a copy of Nachtjäger. The contest runs until April 8, so you still have almost two weeks to enter or vote.

Use the Across the Rhine tab on the Battlefront Facebook page, or click here...

You will be receiving a copy of Nachtjäger and a British Rifle Company box - everything you need to get you started toward getting your list on to the table. Congratulations, and thanks to everyone who participated in our contest.
