Tiger Heavy Tank Platoon (GBX99)

Tiger Heavy Tank Platoon (GBX99)
The massive Tiger tank was planned to be in service for the Battle of El Alamein. Technical problems delayed its arrival in North Africa until later in the year when they were shipped to Tunisia to fight there. They fought alongside the Afrika Korps in the Battle of Kasserine Pass.

Honey Armoured Troop (BBX32)
The M3 Stuart Light Tank is the first American-made tank supplied to the British Army under the lend-lease programme. One of its intended roles was infantry support. But to the British, infantry tanks are slow and heavily armoured, so the Honey is employed in the same way as the British-built cruisers. Compared with earlier British-designed tanks, it is much less prone to breaking down—so reliable that its drivers call it a ‘Honey’.
