Bagration: Axis-Allies - Hungarian, Romanian and Finish Forces On The Eastern Front

Bagration: Axis Allies Spotlight

Bagration: Axis Allies Spotlight
with Wayne Turner

In 1944 Stalin’s Red army is on the attack. While it throws the Germans out of Byelorussia, it also goes about defeating Germany’s allies; Finland, Romania and Hungary. The Romanians hold off the first Soviet attacks, but a second massive offensive in August 1944 sees them overwhelmed. They surrender and swap sides to fight alongside the Soviets.

Meanwhile, the Finns also fight for their survival as the Soviets attempt to steamroll them out of the war. They fight the Soviets to a standstill and agree a peace, but are forced to turn on the Germans.

Finnish Forces

Infantry Platoon (FI702)
An Infantry Company (Jalkaväkikomppania) is led by a Captain who is a veteran of years of fighting. Finnish divisions have had to be reduced from three to two regiments each of infantry, but they are still balanced units with infantry, light infantry (Jääkäri scouts), machine-guns and mortars.

SMG Platoon (FI703)

SMG Platoon (FI703)
The Finns found the submachine-gun very handy in the close confines of forest combat. As more Suomi and captured Soviet PPSh submachine-guns have become available, whole platoons have been equipped with them.

Maxim Machine-gun Platoon (FI704)
Large numbers of Soviet infantry are still the greatest threat to Finnish defences. But the ever reliable Maxim HMG is still at hand to see them off. As long as the Soviets keep coming, it will keep firing.

81mm and 120mm Mortar Platoon (FI705)

81mm and 120mm Mortar Platoon (FI705)
The little Tampella M/35 81mm mortar remains a great support weapon for the infantry. Skilled crews can bring their shells down on the Soviets before they have time to react. The Finnish Tampella 120mm mortars along with those captured from the Soviets provide infantry with heavy firepower. The heavy mortars’ high explosive rounds disrupt Soviet assaults as they advance on Finnish positions.

BT-42 Assault Gun (FI010)
The BT-42 assault gun is now hopelessly obsolete, and has been placed in an independent company. Even so, their crews have bravely set out to face Soviet heavy armour in the Panssari Division counterattack. They took heavy losses and were put into reserve.

Landsverk Anti II Anti-Aircraft Gun (FI160)

Landsverk Anti II Anti-Aircraft Gun (FI160)
The Swedish made Landsverk Anti II self-propelled anti-aircraft guns are very good weapons. Their 40mm Bofors cannon with its high rate of fire make them very useful in keeping roving Soviet aircraft away from Finnish armoured troops.

Hungarian Forces

Assault Gun Battery (Plastic) (HUAB01)

Assault Gun Battery (Plastic) (HUAB01)
While the Hungarians may have been behind the Germans in military technology, they were not slow to recognise a good idea when they saw it. In 1943 they went about creating their own assault gun forces to support their infantry divisions based on the German assault gun battalions.
