Early War Germans
Four GHQ packs, all German AFVs which are very typical of the early years - Blitzkrieg in France and in the East. The Panzer 35(t) and 38(t) were Czech tanks, appropriated by the Germans when they occupied Czechoslovakia in 1938, and they were an important part of the Panzer armies. The Panzer 1b was hardly worthy of the title "tank" - with thin armour and just a pair of MGs as its armament, it was already obsolete in 1939, but there were still a lot of them around in the early campaigns. Finally the Sdkfz 222 armoured car was another familiar vehicle, along with the 223 radio car.
