M3 Lee Tank Platoon (Plastic) (UBX50)

M3 Lee Platoon (Plastic)
In the build-up to entering the war, US Army planners knew they would need a 75mm-armed tank to overcome the latest German panzers. Of the proposed designs which could be produced quickly, none had a turret big enough to hold a 75mm gun. As a temporary solution, the hull of a pre-war M2A1 medium tank was modified to take a short M2 75mm gun in a limited traverse sponson in the right front of the hull, while retaining a 37mm gun in the turret.

M10 3-Inch Tank Destroyer Platoon (Plastic)
The most potent weapon the US Army has in Tunisia for dealing with enemy tanks is the M10 tank destroyer, officially named the M10 3-inch Gun Motor Carriage. It has one job: to stalk and destroy enemy tanks, breaking up the focused armoured attacks for which the German panzer divisions have become famous.

37mm Anti-tank Gun Platoon (US788)

37mm Anti-tank Gun Platoon
The M3 37mm gun is the US Army's first dedicated anti-tank gun. Its small armour piercing round is not much of a threat to the tough front armour of the German panzers, but it can still be deadly from the side, especially at close range. The Battalion's anti-tank platoon was originally part of the Weapons Company, but it is now attached to the HQ Company.

Mortar Platoon
Mortars fire in a high arc, dropping a high explosive bomb down onto the enemy's positions. Rifle Companies can call on the support of two types of mortar—three 60mm mortars from their own Weapons Platoon, as well as another six 81mm mortars from the Battalion's Weapons Company.

Fighting First Command Cards (FW243C)

Fighting First Command Cards
Command Cards provide Flames Of War generals with a way to further personalise and enhance their forces. These optional cards include a range of options that can enhance or change your gaming experience by adding new Formations, Upgrades and Warriors, giving you even more choice when building your force.

Fighting First Command Cards (FW243C)...

Mission Cards
The army always has a plan, and your formation has a mission as part of that plan. While you can just stick your forces on the table and fight until one side is completely destroyed, missions and scenarios add a whole new level to the game as players struggle to tank or defend specific objectives or achieve goals vital to their war effort.

Ruined Desert Houses (BB230)

Ruined Desert Houses (BB230)
Four walls and a roof provide the infantryman with protection from small arms fire and shell fragments; making them difficult to winkle out without the aid of some real firepower.

Firestorm Red Thunder
We've had plenty of requests for players to extend the campaign for a few more days so that everyone has one last weekend to get some games in and strike a blow for freedom and liberty, or is that for equality and the fair distribution of resources!
TY Newspaper

In a surprise attack, the Soviet high command launched renewed thrusts on the Ruhr and Frankfurt in an effort to encircle the British Army on the Rhine (BAOR). NATO forces are fighting tooth and nail to maintain a corridor through Kassel to the embattled British force.

Heavy fighting on the Leipzig-Berlin axis is wearing down the Warsaw Pact forces, but NATO is making very little headway in its offensive.

On the flanks, NATO forces are making significant headway. It appears that the Soviet high command has withdrawn most of their first-rate formations from Amsterdam in the north and Niederbayern in the south, allowing British and German forces to regain much of the ground lost in the initial offensive. At the same time, pressure on the British in the Hanover Pocket seems to be lessening significantly.

There is speculation amongst the intelligence community that the Soviet command has fallen afoul of poor quality reports coming from local commanders claiming greater success than had actually been achieved, while the quality of intelligence coming into NATO command has allowed them to take advantage of this weakness.

Studio Battle Reports
Did you catch the Studio's big game last weekend on Facebook? We returned to Pete's gaming table (75 square feet of battlefield) for another big game.

Andrew and Chris (NATO allies) tried to hold back the Soviet tide of Peter, Aaron and Wayne.

Your Questions Answered

Over on the Flames Of War Facebook group we asked for your questions about the new book. Thanks you guys we got some great ones so Phil and Chris sat down to discuss them.

Early and Late War Flames of War Update
Flames Of War version 4 has been out for a while now, with lots of games played, and lots of feedback given to Battlefront. We’ve pondered the things players have been saying and are suggesting the following changes to the adjustments that the 1939-1941 and 1944-45 rulebook makes to version 3.

Thank you for all of your amazing feedback over the past couple of weeks. Without the assistance of the community we could not have had such a successful outcome. Based on your feedback we have finalised the changes. In the coming weeks we will integrate these changes into an updated Lessons From The Front.

Lessons From The Front: 4th Edition

More Missions Pack

More Missions Update
Gamers have played many thousands of games since Team Yankee and Version 4 of Flames Of War were released, many of them played using the More Missions packs. With so many games being played, we’ve received lots of useful feedback on how the packs can be improved. After pondering the feedback and suggestions, we’ve made some changes and now we need you help in testing them.

We have an update to the More Missions Pack last week with the addition of the Contact mission as a replacement for Hasty Attack in the Battle Plans, and changed the Minefields entries to cover both Mid War and Early/Late War periods.

Lessons From The Front: 4th Edition
Last Updated 10 August 2017
A new rules set always results in questions about how the finer points of the game should work so Lessons From The Front is the place to go to find answers to some of the harder questions.

These are living documents that we will update as often as possible but please bear in mind that whilst we listen to feedback in the forums (and other places) we need to take a considered approach before implementing any changes.
