Description Extended Information
 
Forces of Valor 85010 German Wurfkorper M F1 50 Stuka zu Fuss Halftrack with Rocket Launchers - Unidentified Unit, Normandy, 1944 (1:72 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!"

After the campaign in France in 1940, J. Gast KG. Berlin were ordered to develop a projector for the Wurfgerat 40, which would be fitted on the Mittlere Schutzenpanzerwagen. The resulting Stuka zu Fuss ("Stuka on foot") could be traversed by the driver and used against enemy troop or armored formations some distance away. Each projector frame could be elevated anywhere from +5 degrees to +40 degrees. Firing took 10 seconds and gave the 3rd Panzerpionier Zug heavy bombardment capability up to 1.9km for Sprengragate and 2.2km for Flammgranate.

Shown here is a 1:72 scale replica of a German Wurfkorper M F1 50 Stuka zu Fuss halftrack w/ rocket launchers which saw action in Normandy during 1944. Sold Out!

Historical Account: "Pionieres" - At the end of World War I, the standoff in the Western Front caused the Imperial German Army to gather experienced and particullary skilled soldiers to form "Assault Teams" which would breakthrough the Allied trenches. With enhanced training and special weapons (such as flamethrowers), these squads obtained some success, but too late to change the outcome of the war. In early WWII, however, the Wehrmacht "Pioniere" battalions proved their efficiency in both attack and defense, somewhat inspiring other armies to develop their own combat engineers battalions. Notably, the attack on Fort Eben-Emael in Belgium was conducted by Luftwaffe glider-deployed combat engineers.
