D-Day German Forces In Normandy 1944

Hit The Beach (FWBX09) Hit The Beach (FWBX09)
With a thunderous crash another shell smashes into the wall above you, showering your trench with rubble. Looking around, your entire position resembles a cauldron of fire—every roof ablaze, black smoke billowing into the night sky. As the echo of the blast dies away, the crack of rifle fire breaks out, and an ominous clanking and rumbling… Suddenly, out of the flames roars a Tiger tank! Leaping from your trench you run forwards. ‘Bazooka! Bazooka, now!’ Even as the din swallows your shouting, you see a trooper levelling his rocket launcher at the great beast’s tracks. It may not be enough. You are in command. Take control. What are your orders?

German Panzer Kampfgruppe (GEAB18)
Like a phoenix ascendant, Germany has risen once again from the false defeat contrived by our traitorous leaders in the First World War. The Treaty of Versailles was foisted upon an undefeated army and a nation willing to do anything to achieve victory. We must all be willing to do anything, anything to have the Fatherland rule the world!

Panther Tank Platoon (GBX161)

Panther Tank Platoon (GBX161)
While the Panther tank is nominally a medium tank, its gun can penetrate any Allied tank with ease, while its own armour is difficult to penetrate in return. Their doctrine requires the panzer divisions to use their Panthers in heavy punches, smashing anything in their way to the objective, then withdraw them from the front line to prepare for the next attack.

Armoured Flame-thrower Platoon (GBX156)
Armoured flame-throwers like the Sd Kfz 251/16 half-track are successful terror weapons. With a flame-thrower spewing fire from each side, enemy infantry abandon their positions rather than be burned to death, clearing the way for the panzergrenadiers.

Grille 15cm Gun Platoon (GE142)

Grille 15cm Gun Platoon (GE151)
Unlike the lighter 7.5cm infantry gun, the 15cm howitzer couldn't be mounted aboard a Sd Kfz 251 half-track, so instead the Germans experimented with using several different out-dated tank chassis. By 1943, the result was the Grille (Cricket) self-propelled 15cm gun. This gave the panzergrenadiers their own high-calibre, mobile guns to shatter enemy strongholds.
