DAK Transport

Well I think I've got enough transport for my DAK now(*) These are the six Pegasus German trucks that forced their way onto my painting table. The S Models Panzer II was completed at the same time. The trucks are quite basic, but fit for purpose, the only downside is that they have bench seats, which reduces their range of uses. The Panzer II is a really nice fast build kit, but the the suspension is a bit two dimensional, but I won't notice while playing.


* Trouble is, to make an early DAK force I need plenty of Horch field cars.

They look really nice. I think I just got some of the exact same trucks actually for my 8th army force. Now I think I have the wrong trucks!

adeptgamer/Will - my reading of the history of the war would indicate that both sides attacked and retreated so many times, that both sides were using large quantities of the other sides transport.... so 8th can quite happily use the Blitz's, and DAK would have used jeeps/bren carriers and all sorts...... when my Afrika Korps fight they have a supply train consisting of Bedford's, Austin's, Italian lorries, and Opel Blitz's... :o)

There were complaints from air force types on both sides because of misidentifying ground targets...black crosses on Bedfords and white kangaroos on Italian tanks! Nice kits. Well done.

I'm aware of the mixed usage by both sides and the confusion it caused at times, and I've got a couple of Bedford MWD in the stash ready to be modified to a German version.
