Bagration: Axis Allies - Romanian Direct Only Range

Romanian Direct Range

Anti-Tank Crew (FSO107)

Anti-Tank Crew (RSO105)
includes four Anti-tank Gun Crews and one Observer Team.

In the Crimea, Germany supplied 7.5cm TAC 40 (PaK40) anti-tanks guns. These excellent guns provided the Romanians with the hitting power required to deal with the Soviet T-34 tank, and the heavier KV and IS models. In 1944 each division’s artillery organised a second battery of anti-tank guns. These divisional level anti-tank guns are 75mm guns for taking on the increasingly numerous heavier Soviet tanks. The 1st Armoured Division is equipped with the native TAC 43 or M43 Reșița gun. This gun took the best of the Vickers 75mm AA gun, German PaK40 and Soviet ZIS-3 and combined them into a Romanian design of their own.

Artillery Crew (RSO101)

Artillery Crew (RSO101)
includes four Gun Crews and one Observer Team.

Due to the limited numbers of guns available after the losses sustained during the Stalingrad campaign the infantry divisions’ artillery was reduced to two two-battalion regiments in 1944. Initially the Romanians planned to equip them with 100mm and 150mm howitzers, but large numbers of 75mm guns remained in service in 1944. Some divisions did have their artillery upgraded to 100mm howitzers. The 1st Armoured Division had its artillery upgraded to 100mm howitzers, either the M14/19 Skoda or the M30 Skoda, replacing the old 75mm field guns.

TACAM R-2 (76mm) (RO100)

TACAM R-2 (76mm) (RO100)
includes one TACAM R-2 (76mm) Tank-hunter.

Faced with the fact that the R-2 had to stay in active service, the Romanian Army decided to convert the vehicle into a self-propelled gun armed with a captured Soviet 76mm. By early 1944 it was decided that 40 R-2 tanks would be converted to TACAM R-2s armed with Soviet 76mm ZIS-3 guns with Romanian ammunition (both AP and HE). The gun was mounted in a three-sided fighting compartment that was roofed to provide overhead protection for its crew.

Cavalry Troop (RO708)

Cavalry Troop (RO708)
includes four Cavalry ZB30 & ZB24 Rifle Teams.

The cavalry are the elite of the Romanian army. They are mobile, highly trained and motivated. The cavalry prove time and time again some of the toughest troops in the Romanian forces. During the fighting in 1944 the 1st Cavalry Division is fully mounted. Modern cavalry are not the shock arm as they were in days gone by, though they are still more than capable of the odd dashing charge. Now they are like old fashion dragoons and fight as mounted infantry and are just as comfortable fighting dismounted. They would often hold defensive positions alongside the infantry or, as happened during the fighting in Crimea, be forced to fight on foot because of a lack of horses.
