British infantry squads were made up of 10 men organized around the Bren light machinegun, and consisted of a machinegun group, formed by the second-in-command, machine gunner and loader, and a rifle group made up of 6 riflemen. The squad leader commanded both groups. The infantry uniform was marked by the distinctively shaped Mark II helmet, while the so-called "Battledress" of short wool jacket, leggings and boots was worn by all branches of the army. A denim version of the same battledress was worn in summer months, while leather jerkins were used in winter. Tank crews initially wore the same khaki battledress with the addition of a black beret, but in the later stage of the war this was largely supplanted by coveralls.
While sustaining huge losses at the onset of war, the Russian army was able to halt the German advance just short of Moscow thanks largely to the strength of their tank troops. Following concentrated artillery fire, tanks advanced in three waves with infantry riding on the tanks of the 2nd and 3rd waves. Since the Russian Ground Forces did not possess armored troop carriers like halftracks and universal carriers, so-called "Motor Rifle Units" were attached to every tank brigade to provide infantry support. Once encountering an enemys defensive position, tank riders would disembark, attack the position, and then remount to proceed with the offensive. These infantrymen spearheaded many attacks, and suffered heavy casualties from defending fire.
This selection features Late WWII German Panzer Grenadiers together with tank crewmen and a driver and officer figure specially designed for displaying with 1/48 scale light vehicles such as the Schwimmwagen.
About the Uniforms:
The German army in WWII is known for employing a wide variety of advanced and creative camouflage uniforms. One example is the reversible camouflage smock which featured a spring pattern on one side, and fall pattern on the other. The M44 fatigues issued from spring 1944 featured pea pattern camouflage of green, gray, brown and black spots on a neutral background. German troops such as Panzer grenadiers used this uniform, together with a variety of camouflage smocks, in the latter part of the war. Armored crews initially wore black fatigues, but began using camouflage uniforms from the middle of the war. While some units favored black leather jackets, the hooded combat jacket issued in 1942 was used widely until the closing days of WWII.
Set includes ten early WWII German infantry men and five tank crewmen in various poses.
Features separate plastic weapons and equipment for added realism.
