WH077 Machine Gun Team


SKU: WH077 Category:


This 2-man set has the excellent MG42 machine gun lined up and ready to decimate any approaching enemy. This belt-fed machine gun was so well-designed and manufactured that a direct derivation of it is still in use with the German Bundeswehr (Army) today!

By the time the 1934 Party Rally in Nuremberg had taken place and been filmed the Nazis had just been in power for less than 20 months. Just over 10 years later the picture had dramatically changed, the British and Americans were steadily advancing from the West and the Soviet steam roller was smashing all before it from the East. Germany was throwing all its reserves into the front lines to try to stave off defeat or at least postpone the inevitable in the vain hope that Hitler’s “Wonder Weapons” would soon arrive. Among the soldiers defending the crumbling borders of the Third Reich were these Panzer Grenadiers.
