Anti-Tank Team with Panzerschreck (two Normandy Fallschirmjager wearing gas masks (without the canister attachment), ammunition crate and 2 x personal side-arms for the crew)--RETIRED--LAST ONE!!
Item Number: FJ022A
FJ022 comprises a new version of an anti tank team very reminiscent of TGM003 released some 6 years previous. The Panzerschreck was a mid war anti tank weapon based on captured samples of the American Bazooka utilising previous German technology. The main difference between the German and American weapons was that the German variant fired an 88mm rocket which could penetrate any Allied armour, but at the same time produced more smoke upon firing, giving it the nickname Stovepipe. The large amount of smoke produced meant that the crews had to change positions after firing in order to avoid being attacked by surviving tanks and infantry. This, in itself, was hazardous, especially under battlefield conditions. A shield was added later, adding a further 2 Kilos to the overall weight. But, in true battlefield tradition, this new shield was sometimes removed by its crew in order to make carrying less labour intensive!
Our unique set features two Fallschirmjager wearing gas masks (without the canister attachment), ammunition crate and 2 x personal side-arms for the crew.
Limited to 100.
