SS Panzergrenadier Platoon (Plastic) GBX141
SS Panzergrenadier Platoon (Plastic) (GBX141)
includes one Unit Leader MG42 Team, six MG42 Teams, three Panzerschreck Anti-tank Teams and three Unit cards.
SS panzergrenadiers were heavily armed, with two MG42 machine-guns in each squad backed with plenty of guns and mortars, so their firepower (and ammunition expenditure) was immense. Fortunately, their motorised transport meant that they could bring up the required ammunition each night, ready for the next day’s battle. Their fearless determination to defend the Third Reich, and the impressive volume of fire they could generate, made them a tough nut for the Allies to crack.

With the American and British forces poised to invade Normandy, they were brought west to France to rebuild, tripling their strength to become far stronger than the handful of regular Army Panzer divisions facing the Allies.

In the battles that followed, their unswerving determination and stubborn refusal to retreat made them the most feared opponents the Allies faced..
