Enemy at the Gates Spotlight

Enemy at the Gates brings the Soviet Army to Flames Of War. As you’d expect, the book has a variety of tank and infantry formations and plenty of interesting support (flamethrower tanks or rocket-firing trucks anyone?).

Phil takes us through Enemy at the Gates and introduces us to the wealth of new units and models that Soviet players will be able to enjoy.

Nikolay's Steel Wall (Plastic) (SUAB09)
A flash showed where a German gun was hiding, its round parting the tall grass, speeding towards his tanks. Smirnov had no idea whether the shot had hit or not, and had no time to look about. Without slowing, Smirnov fired another shot in the direction of the German gun. As the range closed, the tanks began firing their machine guns. The T-34s ploughed straight through wooden fences and raced between the buildings, glimpses of fleeing Germans amongst the smoke and ruin making the scene surreal.

T-34 (Early) Tank Company (Plastic) (SBX39)

T-34 (Early) Tank Company (Plastic) (SBX39)
When their speedy, but lightly-armoured, tanks suffered heavy losses in the Spanish Civil War, the Soviet tank designers built a replacement with thicker armour and a bigger gun, the T-34. Entering production before the German invasion, this tank continued to fight throughout the war, becoming the most-produced tank of the Second World War.

KV Tank Company (Plastic) (SBX40)
The KV-1 heavy tank is one of the most heavily-armoured tanks in the world, with up to 120mm (4.7 inches) of cast steel armour on the turret. Few enemy tanks (or even anti-tank guns) have any chance of penetrating its thick hide.

Valentine Tank Company (Plastic) (SBX41)

Valentine Tank Company (SBX41)
Britain and Canada shipped over 3000 Valentine tanks to the Soviet Union as part of their lend-lease aid. Although the British viewed the Valentine as a heavy infantry-support tank, the Red Army considered it a rather heavy light tank when compared with their own medium and heavy tanks.

Valentine Tank Company (SBX41)...

M3 Lee Tank Company (SBX42)
The rather unusual looking M3 Lee mounted its 75mm gun in a sponson at the front of the hull, and a 37mm gun in a small turret on top. This unusual measure allowed the tank to be designed and rushed into production quickly while a more conventional tank with a turret-mounted 75mm gun was designed and put into production.

M3 Stuart Tank Company (SBX43)

M3 Stuart Tank Company (SBX43)
As a classic light tank, combining speed and light armour, the M3 Stuart fit in readily with the existing Soviet doctrine for exploiting breakthroughs. However, experience showed that the M3 Stuart's light armour was insufficient to allow it to operate alongside the well-armoured T-34 medium tank as an assault tank.

M3 Stuart Tank Company (SBX43)...

T-60 Tank Company (SBX45)
Cheap and simple to produce, with a crew of only two, the tiny T-60 was expected to take its place on the front line alongside the T-34 and KV-1. The T-60 was produced in automobile factories while Soviet heavy industry was shifted to Siberia. It ran on a copy of a Ford truck engine and so was easy to manufacture in large numbers, freeing up heavy industry for the KV-1 and T-34 production.

Rifle Company (Plastic) (SBX50)

Rifle Company (Plastic) (SBX50)
The soldiers of the Red Army frequently demonstrated their lethality in close quarters assaults. Fighting to rid the beloved Motherland of the fascist invaders, they show little mercy. they were not permitted to stop and take cover for fear that they would not advance again.

Rifle Company (Plastic) (SBX50)...

SMG Company (Plastic) (SBX51)
Every regiment had one or more submachine-gun companies. These assault troops had massive short-range firepower to suppress the enemy defences, then kill them in close combat

Storm Group (Plastic) (SBX52)

Storm Group (Plastic) (SBX52)
The most experienced and self-reliant soldiers of the battalion are gathered together into a hand-picked storm group. Backed up with plenty of heavy weapons, they storm a German-held building, then bring up their supporting weapons to hold what they have taken.

Storm Group (Plastic) (SBX52)...

Maksim MG Company (Plastic) (SU770)
Fire support from the old, reliable Maksim machine-gun gives the rifle battalion the ability to keep the Germans pinned to the earth and unable to fire while the riflemen close and overrun their positions.

PTRD AT Rifle Company (Plastic) (SU771)

PTRD AT Rifle Company (Plastic) (SU771)
The Red Army used massed PTRD anti-tank rifles to protect their infantry from tanks. While one anti-tank rifle might not be particularly deadly, a dozen or more can be very effective, exploiting their speed and mobility to get flank shots in a way that anti-tank guns cannot.

82mm And 120mm Mortar Company (Plastic) (SU772)
When the heavy guns of the artillery batteries are otherwise occupied, it is useful for the infantry to have their own indirect-fire weapon. The 82mm And 120mm Mortars can be just as good as the bigger guns at digging infantry out of cover. Soviet mortars have built-in wheels, so the mortars can move quickly to keep up with the infantry that they are supporting.

122mm Artillery Battery (SBX49)

122mm Artillery Battery (SBX49)
The 122mm artillery gun throws a bigger shell than the equivalent German howitzer over a longer range, they destroyed guns, tanks, and infantry with equal ease. When rolled up to point-blank range, their brutal shells easily eliminated any target

122mm Artillery Battery (SBX49)...

76mm Anti-Tank Company (SBX48)
Heavy Tank-Killer Companies can be outfitted with either 57mm or 76mm guns, both devastating against German vehicles.The 76mm will hold its own against light armour and soft targets, while the 57mm variant trades its HE capabilities for great AP, giving it a better chance of knocking out tougher German armour.

45mm Anti-Tank Company (SBX47)

45mm Anti-Tank Company (SBX47)
These 45mm anti-tank guns are extremely mobile in the hands of their Soviet crews, but they have to be, as the Soviets are rarely afforded the luxury of motorised tow vehicles. These elite tank-killers were hand-picked for their skillful handling of their weapons, which accounted for 70% of all German panzers destroyed by the Red Army.

Katyusha Guards Rocket Battery (Plastic) (SBX44)
The Red Army was a world leader in the field of rocketry. They used truck-mounted salvo rocket launchers against the Germans right from the start of the war. These saturated a large area with explosives, quickly pinning down the enemy and causing widespread casualties

BA-10 Armoured Car Platoon (SBX46)

BA-10 Armoured Car Platoon (SBX46)
Once, the Soviet Union had thousands of powerful BA-10 armoured cars. Now, they make do with the handful of survivors. Armed with a 45mm gun that could easily destroy opposing armoured cars, the BA-10 led the advance. Dashing along the road ahead of the tanks, it located enemy concentrations so that they could be attacked or flanked.

DShK AA MG Platoon (SBX38)
The 12.7mm DShK heavy machine-gun is the Soviet equivalent of the American .50 cal machine-gun, and is used in a similar role. Mounted on a light truck, the gun is mobile enough to accompany the brigade as it advances.

Il-2 Shturmovik Assault Flight (SBX53)

Il-2 Shturmovik Assault Flight (SBX53)
The Ilyushin-2 Shturmovik ground-attack aircraft was one of the most important Soviet combat aircraft of World War II. The Il-2 was a well-designed, effective aircraft and was produced in great numbers.

Stalingrad Rubble Piles (BB238) Stalingrad Rubble Piles (BB238)
In the Battle Of Stalingrad many parts of the city were reduced to ruins with buildings damaged or even outright destroyed. These piles of rubble provided cover for infantry and could prove difficult for tanks and vehicles to cross.

War often takes its toll on the buildings with many reduced to shadows of their former selves. Even a ruin however still provide cover for a solider or a hiding spot for an ambush.
