Description
 
Gaso.Line Gas48504 German BP42 Armored Train - Commandement Wagen (1:50 Scale) "We must do everything we can to promote anti-tank defense, and work just as hard to guarantee successful counter-attacks through the instrument of powerful tank forces of our own."
- Major-General Heinz Guderian, "Achtung Panzer!"

Armored trains were used by both sides on the Eastern Front during WWII. In fact their use began at the end of WWI and was further developed between the wars in the conflicts in Eastern Europe. Both the "Reds" and "Whites" factions fighting for control of Russia used armored trains in considerable numbers during the Russian Civil War, as did Poland at the beginning stages of WWII. Once WWII began, the Germans had to catch up on their armored train proficiency to help protect reinforcements and supplies from reaching the eastern front since they were constantly harassed by local partisans. As the Red Army grew in strength and the front became more fluid, there were a number of battles and skirmishes between tanks and armored trains.

Two 32 MT Commandement Wagen cars were part of a typical BP 42 armoured train. Each was equipped with two radio sets originally used for tanks along with a FM radio set for inter-car communication. An infantry platoon travelled in each car, with the train commander in one car and the deputy commander in the second command car. The soldiers could also bring their small arms fire to bear through the many loopholes dotting the sides of the cars. Sold Out!
