Fielding the Panzer 38(t)
The Panzer 38(t) was a tank which was not originally developed by Germany, in fact it was designed in Czechoslovakia as the LT-38 or Light Tank model 38. The tank was designed by the CKD company and was in the early stages of production in 1938 when Czechoslovakia was annexed by the German Reich. Superior to the German Panzer I and II, the Germans continued the production of the LT-38, placing it into service as the Panzer 38(t), where the t stands for tschechisch, the German word for Czech. The continued production of the Panzer 38(t) enabled the Germans to expand their panzer forces and make up for the shortfall in Panzer III and Panzer IV production before the outbreak of the Second World War.

StuIG33B – The Bummbär’s Mother

Fielding the StuIG33B: The Bummbär’s Mother
The Sturm-Infanteriegeschütz 33B (Assault-Infantry Gun 33B) was a German self-propelled heavy assault. A new, fully enclosed, and heavily armoured boxy casemate superstructure was built on the chassis of the StuG. It mounted an improved version of the 15cm infantry gun. It had a very poor traverse, though the firepower of the charge was sufficient enough to demolish small buildings.

Force Diagrams
Force composition in V4 Mid War allows for a huge variety of armies to built, mixing and matching all sorts of support options to represent forces from many different theatres and battles, as outlined in Phil’s Companies Accompanied. 

To help illustrate these changes, and to make building your forces simple and straightforward, we will be sharing with you a series of Force Diagrams showing all the different options you have available to you. As Mid War develops and evolves, we will expand on these diagrams, adding new formations and support options for Fallschirmjagers, Paratroopers, Online Briefings, and Minor Axis.
