Early Panzerkampfwagen III Ausf J's were fitted with the short 5cm gun until Hitler ordered their upgunning to the long 5cm. Used in 1942 in Russia and by Rommel in North Africa, the Panzer III J was the standard German tank in early mid war.

The SdKfz 223 (Funkapparat or radio) was the radio car version of the Leichter Panzerspahwagen series of armoured cars, armed like the SdKfz 221 with a 7.92 mm MG34 machine gun. It included additional radio equipment and had a large 'bed-frame' antenna over the vehicle. Over five hundred of the SdKfz 223 were produced.

The Schwerer Panzerspahwagen were a series of heavy armoured cars with six or eight wheels used by the German army. Intended for the vital role of reconnaissance, scouting ahead of the Panzer tank units to assess enemy strength and intentions, they were large and ungainly but a very fast addition to the German mobile arsenal. The SdKfz 231 (8-rad) was simply the SdKfz231 (6-rad) with eight wheels, armed similarly with a 2cm KwK 30 L/55 autocannon and an MG 13 machine gun.

Nebelwerfer literality means smoke launcher, an apt if somewhat misleading name for the German rocket launcher. When firing, the Nebelwerfer leaves an impressive trail of smoke behind the trajectory of the rockets, often making the battery vulnerable to counter-battery fire. It could however fire smoke as well as high-explosive rounds.
The Nebelwerfer was developed in the early 1930s. The 15cm Nebelwerfer 41 was the most common German rocket-launching artillery piece. It had six barrels; each barrel fired a 34-kilogram 15cm rocket (Wurfgranate 41) out to a range of about 6800 metres. The bundle of launch tubes was mounted on the modified carriage of a light 3.7cm PaK 36 anti-tank gun.
This Flames of War blister pack contains 3 large bases, 3 Nebelwerfers and 15 crew figures and command figures.
Turret Bunkers (GE681) with one R-35 turret, one APX turret, one Panzer II turret and two turret base plates.
Given the limited resources available to the planners of Fortress Europa, they used whatever material was available. While the French tanks captured in 1940 might be old and no longer battleworthy, their turrets were still useful as beach defences for the Wiederstandneste.
A Panzer division’s Gepanzerte, or armoured, Panzergrenadier battalion has armoured half-tracks to allow it to keep pace with the tanks on attack. The armoured Sd Kfz 251/1 half-tracks also offer a level of protection from small arms fire and shrapnel while on the move. Combined with Panzergrenadier Platoon (GBX76) the Panzergrenadier Company HQ box set allows you to collect the bulk of your Gepanzerte Panzergrenadierkompanie by simply combining the Company HQ with two or three Gepanzerte Panzergrenadier Platoons. This Flames of War box includes three plastic Sd Kfz 251 half-track sprues, three plastic Crew sprues, two plastic Panzergrenadier Command sprues, one Half-track decal sheet, two Small three-hole bases & one Medium four-hole base.
