Corgi Aviation Archive Strike East Series

Corgi Aviation Archive Strike East Series

The Russian Winter, sometimes personified as "General Frost" or "General Winter", is an aspect of the climate of Russia that has contributed to military failures of several invasions of Russia. Mud is a related contributing factor that impairs military maneuvering in Russia and elsewhere, and is sometimes personified as "General Mud". Russians call those muddy conditions, rasputitsa, which occur with autumnal rains and spring thaws in Russia and make transport over unimproved roads difficult.

Corgi's all-new "Strike East" series examines some of the Axis aircraft used during their first winter campaign in the Russian heartland towards the latter days of 1941. As such, many of the standard aircraft used throughout the previous stages of the German onslaught have been over-sprayed with a layer of white wash so that they could better blend in with the countryside now covered in blankets of snow some six months after their initial invasion of Russia in June 1941.

The Stuka was a rugged machine, designed to swoop down and destroy its target using 500-lb bombs or tear into them using 37mm flak guns mounted underneath the wings.
