Sd.Kfz.184 (Elefant) - Sd.Kfz.171 (Panther) - Panzer Brigate 150

Last week my friends played to Rapid Fire and after they finished their game the table was already prepared so ... why not to take some pics of my new tanks?

The tank crew of a Sd.Kfz. 184 ... also called Elefant ... is working to refill his tank

The Elefant was an heavy tank destroyer used at the end of the war in particular during the Battle of Kursk.  It was a great tank if used for a static defensive role ... unfortunately poor mobility and mechanical unreliability greatly diminished its operational capability.

Before Christmas holidays I bought two Tigers and two Panthers to create armour unit in line with Rapid Fire ... waiting I finished to paint them I took some pics of the Panther I painted for test.

The Sd.Kfz.171 was initially used to fight against the Soviet T-34 but this model was largely used in a lot of war theaters.

That day, I had also some American soldiers with me so I thought  to take some pictures using them. The idea was to create a simple vignette inspiring to Panzer Brigate 150 

This German Brigate was formed to take part in the Ardennes offensive and it was a special unit that included English-speaking members wearing American Army uniforms to cause disruption and disinformation behind the American lines. 

Finally, why not to use the same crossroad to re create a movement of troops?

... or a simple hill or a road to take some pics of a Stug?
