GERMAN INFANTRY, DAK, WWII era - ''TO THE STORM! FORWARD'' - Master Box 3593

The decisive influence on the formation of the organization and tactics of the German infantry before the outbreak of the Second World War was, on the one hand, the experience of the previous world war, but also theoretical works made in the 1920s and 1930s, which he often stressed the need to perceive the German infantry as a tool for waging offensive warfare. This affected both the equipment and the organization of the German infantry division, which during the September 1939 campaign consisted of 3 infantry regiments, each of which was divided into 3 infantry battalions, one artillery company and one anti-tank. In addition, there were numerous support units, including: an artillery regiment with 4 artillery squadrons (including one heavy), an anti-tank battalion, an engineer battalion and a communications battalion. In total, the so-called infantry division. In the first wave of mobilisation, it numbered approximately 17,700 personnel and had a significant artillery component, but was also profusely equipped with machine guns. It also had modern and efficient means of communication and command, for those times. During the war, the infantry divisions underwent a transformation: in 1943 some were transformed into armored grenadier divisions. However, since 1943, the standard "traditional" infantry division consisted of about 12,500 men (and not about 17,700 as in 1939), and its artillery component was also reduced - in particular the heavy one, while its anti - tank defense has been significantly improved. It is assumed that during the entire Second World War, about 350 infantry divisions served in the Wehrmacht.

ITALERI

Self-propelled M40 75/18 ITALERI 1:72

The box contains two quick-assembly self-propelled tanks, Italeri 1:72 scale. The Semovente M40 75/18, designed by Fiat Ansaldo, was used by the Royal Army from the end of 1941 in North Africa and was used for the entire duration of the Second World War . Although it was developed on the now antiquated chassis of the M13/40 tank, it was the only Italian armored vehicle, produced in large numbers, to constitute a serious threat to Allied vehicles. Its 75mm casemate gun had good firepower and was effective even with the most modern Allied tanks such as the Sherman. The good gun was unable to make up for too light armor and the not very powerful and reliable engine derived directly from the M13/40 tank. The Semovente was used, in particular, by the Ariete and Littorio Armored Divisions in North Africa, but also, over the following years, by the departments of the Social Republic.
