Ghost Panzers Spotlight

Ghost Panzers Spotlight
Ghost Panzers centres on the action around Operation Citadel, also known as the Battle of Kursk. It was here in July 1943, that one of the war’s largest tank battles took place, with over 2450 German tanks and assault guns. Over 3600 Soviet tanks were waiting for them, setting the scene for the largest tank battle on the Eastern Front.

Join Mike as he takes a look at what is in store for players in Ghost Panzers.

Bake's Fire Brigade (Plastic) (GEAB17)

Bäke's 'Fire Brigade (Plastic) (GEAB17)
Hartmann wiped sweat and dust from his forehead with a muttered curse. 'Hold here,'

he called down through the open hatch and braced himself as the panzer slowed to a halt in the grass of the steppe. He peered up the slope ahead, seeing tan dust rising to meet the gathering clouds from beyond the crest. 'Turret, front – fifteen degrees. Get a bead right on the top of that ridge'. 

Looking ahead he saw the other tanks in his platoon had halted. He thumbed the transmit button on his microphone.'Loaders, ready with reloads. That’s a lot of dust so look alive.'

Grille 15cm Gun Platoon (GE142)
Unlike the lighter 7.5cm infantry gun, the 15cm howitzer couldn't be mounted aboard a Sd Kfz 251 half-track, so instead the Germans experimented with using several different out-dated tank chassis. By 1943, the result was the Grille (Cricket) self-propelled 15cm gun. This gave the panzergrenadiers their own high-calibre, mobile guns to shatter enemy strongholds.

8.8cm Tank-hunter Platoon (GE532)

8.8cm Tank-hunter Platoon (GE532)
The legacy of the famously versatile 8.8cm FlaK36 anti-aircraft gun on the Eastern Front began with its ability to deal with the heaviest Soviet tanks, such as the KV-1. The 8.8cm FlaK36 anti-aircraft gun is accurate out to a range of several kilometres, giving it the ability to knock out tanks beyond the range at which they can reply—High-velocity 8.8cm armour piercing rounds can penetrate any tank in service, and have no difficulty knocking out just about any tank at any range.

Borgward Demolition Carriers (GE611)
After the invasion of Poland, the German army needed a solution to quickly clear mines ahead of a blitzkrieg attack. Early experiments using mine-rollers and Panzer I tanks carrying demolition packages met with limited success. In 1940, the German automobile manufacturer, Borgward, designed the B IV, a small one-man tank that could carry and deliver a 500kg explosive demolitions package. In the final attack run, the tank could be remotely controlled to the target and detonated, preferably after having dropped off the explosives and saving the Borgward carrier. Trials were successful and, by early 1942, the 300th Panzer Battalion (Radio Control) was created and shipped to the East Front in May 1942.
