"Extra Escort"--two Panzer Grenadier figures walking with K98 rifles

Two supporting Panzer Grenadiers both carrying the classic K98 rifles.

"Panzer Grenadiers On Patrol"

By the autumn of 1944, the general appearance of most German soldiers had changed dramatically since the early victorious years of the ‘Blitzkriegs’ of 1939-1941.

Practical battlefield experience, raw material shortages, and other wartime economies had brought forward the introduction of an all-new, much simpler, less fussy and far less expensive uniform closely modeled on the British Army’s own ‘battledress’.

At the same time, other changes included short canvas gaiters together with M44 lace-up ankle boots and modified field equipment.

These eight new Panzer Grenadiers also carry an assortment of weapons including the excellent, battle-proven, K98 rifle, the superb MG42 machine gun, the newer anti tank ‘Panzerfaust’, and the MP44 assault rifle.

On the Grenadiers’ steel helmets are both the standard, late-war camouflage cover and the simple but effective ‘chicken wire’ net.
