Avanti: Italian Forces In North Africa 1942-43

 Churchill Tank Deployed

Armoured Fist: Churchill Tanks Deployed

This is going to be another amazing year for Mid War players with the much anticipated release of Avanti next month where M14/41 tanks and Semovente SP guns will return to the battlefield.

In April our British players will be able to reinforce their armies with impressive Churchill, as well as Valentines, Shermans and Priests thanks to the release of Armoured Fist.

Later this year we will also be turning our attention to the Eastern Front as the skilful German army goes head to head with the might of Mother Russia!

Avanti: Italian Forces In North Africa 1942-43

Avanti Pre-orders Now Open
The Italians learned about modern warfare the hard way in 1940. Now they are back, showing the world what the Italian soldier can do. Fighting under the famous ‘Desert Fox’, General Rommel, they form a crucial part of the Italian-German Panzer Army. Tough, determined, skilled, and aggressive veterans, the Italians broke through the British Gazala Line to save the trapped German Afrika Korps, held the line at El Alamein, and opened the way at Kasserine Pass, before holding up the American offensive at El Guettar. Fight or die for the new Roman Empire!

LAV Platoon (Plastic) (TUBX16) 

LAV Platoon (Plastic)
The Light Armoured Vehicle, or LAV, is one of the newest vehicles in the Marine Corps’ arsenal. Based on the Swiss MOWAG Piranha and built by General Motors in Canada, this vehicle offers the Marines a fast, highly mobile reconnaissance and light fire support vehicle.

Introduced in 1983, the Marine Corps have organised a number of light armoured vehicle battalions equipped with the LAV and assigned to the Marine divisions. Each battalion has four light armoured vehicle companies equipped with LAV-25, LAV-AT and LAV-M vehicles.

AAVP-7 Platoon
The AAVP7 (Assault Amphibious Vehicle, Personnel Mark 7) is a fully tracked amphibious landing vehicle used by the assault amphibian battalions to land the infantry assault elements and equipment during amphibious operation. They can also conduct mechanized operations ashore.

M551 Sheridan Tank Platoon (TUBX17)

M551 Sheridan Tank Platoon
The M551 Sheridan Armored Reconnaissance/Airborne Assault Vehicle, or ARAAV, is fitted with the M81 dual-purpose gun/missile launcher. It can fire conventional HEAT antitank ammunition for shorter range targets, or the MGM51 Shillelagh (pronounced shil-laylee) anti-tank guided missile, which was more effective at longer ranges.

Overpass
Many key battles can take place around or on roads. An overpass provides a unique set of advantages for a commander, providing cover below at the sides and high ground of the bridge from which to fire upon the enemy.

Battlefront Customer Service Update

Battlefront Customer Service Update
During the year we came to realise that we had lost some of the personal side of dealing with our customers as we became overly reliant on technology and systems, that as good as they can be still are never quite the same as having a real person to help you out.

This led us to evaluate our customer service and direct ordering systems so we decided to take a step forward by taking a step back and put real people in the mix again. Starting immediately we will now have dedicated staff, before this was handled by the entire warehouse team, whose sole job it is to handle your orders and your customer service issues.

Avanti: Italian Forces In North Africa 1942-43

Avanti Forces and Formations
Avanti: Italian Forces in North Africa is our latest book for Flames Of War in our Mid War range. With the coming release and following the same format of Desert Rats and Afrika Korps they use similar formations with a few unique advantages. We’ll be seeing the Formations in the book along with some historical background on the 20th Armoured Corps

Corpo d'Armata Motocorazzato, the 20th Armoured Corps, took a leading part in nearly every battle in the North African Campaign from Gazala to Enfidaville. The core of the formation was the 132nd ‘Ariete’ Armoured Division, the 133rd ‘Littorio’ Armoured Division, and the 101st ‘Trieste’ Motorised Division.
