Building a V1 Rocket Launch Site

Building a V1 Rocket Launch Site
The V-1 rocket included in the Hit the Beach Boxed set is a wonderful model that I feel makes the perfect objective or centrepiece for the game table. In fact, I like it so much I decided to use it as an inspiration for an entire terrain piece that looks right at home in your D-Day themed games. In this article I will detail how I built this terrain so that you can construct something similar for yourself to enhance your games of Flames Of War.

US 4th Armored Division in Normandy and Brittany
While the US 1st Armored Division (Old Ironsides) was slugging it’s way through Italy, five other US armoured divisions were fighting their way onto the beaches at Normandy and then through the bocage country. Two of these divisions have become the most well known over the course of time, that being 2nd Armored Division (Hell On Wheels) and 3rd Armored Division (Spearhead) as featured in Cobra. However, three other divisions played an integral role as well. Let’s take a brief look at the 4th Armored Division.

Sd Kfz 234/2 Puma

Pumas In Normandy
The 234 series of armoured cars was one of the most advanced concepts in wheeled fighting vehicle designs to appear during the war. It had improvements in armour, speed and range. In its original 1940 concept the 234 series was to operate in hot climates. The Czech firm Tatra produced its air-cooled V-12 diesel engine that had an out put of 220hp. The Bussing organization made the hull, which was made of monocoque construction. Daimler-Benz and Schichau were jointly responsible for the turret.

 The Big Four Of Late War

Two (or Three) Days In The Hutt
Chris jumped on a jet plane last week to head down to the Hutt Valley (just north of the New Zealand capital city, Wellington) for a weekend of pushing his massive Czechoslovakian army around and playing WWIII: Team Yankee.

Despite a cancelled flight and an extended stay he learned a lot about his army and had some great games as well!

Polar Bear V

Polar Bear V
January 25 - January 26 - Iceland
Burning Bridges Wargaming Club proudly presents the fifth Polar Bear Tournament in Reykjavík, Iceland. The tournament is named in honor of the 49th West Riding Infantry Division that was sent to Iceland as an occupation force in 1940 and their divisional insignia the Polar Bear was adopted.

The Tournament will be a 81 point Mid War Tournament. The Tournament will be themed on the Eastern Front. Operation Dervish was the first Arctic Convoy with supplies to the Soviet Union in World War II and it assembled in Iceland in the summer of 1941. Players are encouraged to base their armies on the books, Red Banner, Ghost Panzers, Enemy at the Gates and Iron Cross. If you do not have a Eastern Front force then other MW forces are welcome. 81 points is the anniversary of the beginning of World War II but 2020 also celebrates 75 years from its end. 60% of 81 is 49 points.
