Sturmi Add-ons (FSO120)

Ersatz Panther (GE069)

Ersatz Panther (GE069)
includes one Ersatz Panther Tank.

In preparation for the Ardennes offensive, Hitler had given Otto Skorzeny and his commandos the task of infiltrating American positions to create as much general havoc behind enemy lines as possible. Orders were given to disguise the Panthers to resemble the American M10 tank destroyer and were painted green and given large white stars to complete the illusion. While the vehicles were far from convincing, at least Skorzeny now had the numbers he required to secure a route to the Meuse.

2cm Quad FlaK Gn Platoon (GE535)

includes two 2cm Quad Flak Guns with crew.

Not satisfied with the rate of fire of the single barrelled 2cm FlaK38, the quadrupled barrelled version of the FlaK38 boosted an impressive rate of fire of 1800 rounds per minute. However, under combat conditions this was reduced to 800 rounds a minute.

3.7cm FlaK 43 Gun (GE547)
includes three 3.7cm FlaK 43 Gun with crew.

As the Allies imposed their dominance in the skies the need for medium anti-aircraft weapons became greater. The 2cm weapons hitting power and range was not always up to the task, the 3.7cm weapons offered greater range and hitting power without a dramatic decrease in the rate of fire.The 3.7cm FlaK43 in its towed ground mount version was mostly issued to Luftwaffe anti-aircraft units. These Luftwaffe unit, however, were often found supporting Heer units in the field.

Reinforced Trucks (GE439)

Reinforced Trucks (GE439)
includes two Reinforced Trucks.

The trucks that went into combat with Graebner’s assault were reinforced with sandbags, 55-gallon drums filled with sand and grain, and anything else that would offer the slightest bit of protection for the troops inside. Though improvised, the troops were relatively safe from enemy small-arms fire.

21cm NW42 Rocket Launcher (GE592)
includes three 21cm NW42 Rocket Launchers with crew.

The 21cm NW42 was a larger version of the 15cm NW41. Due to it larger size, the 21cm NW42 had five launching tubes compared to the six on the 15cm NW41. The rockets were spin-stabilised and fired electrically, however the back blast created when launching the rockets left a highly visible smoke trail which left the position vulnerable to counter battery fire. Crews often had to act quickly to relocated their positions to avoid such occurrences.

30cm NW42 Rocket Launcher (GE595)

30cm NW42 Rocket Launcher (GE595)
includes three 30cm NW42 Rocket Launchers with crew.

Five Volks-Werfer Brigaden (People’s Rocket Launcher Brigades) supported the German forces during the Ardennes offensive. Each brigade consisted of two regiments with six batteries of 15cm NW41 rocket launchers and three heavy batteries of either 21cm NW42 or 30cm NW42 rocket launchers, depending on if it was the first or second battalion. The biggest advantage of Nebelwerfer rocket launchers is their ability to saturate a wide area quickly with high-explosive rounds. They are ideal for pinning down an enemy position while attacking forces approach for the assault.
