Ferdinand Tank Destroyer.
Bolt Action by Warlord Games has been pumping out some fantastic models and we wanted to feature Bolt Action models with their comparison World of Tank Tier levels. So many tanks, so little time!
The Sherman Tank was the main stay of the American army. The Break out from the Normandy beaches and the bocage could never been achieved without the armoured support.
The M5 Stuart entered production in April 1942 and by mid 1944 over 10,000 vehicles in two variants had been produced.
The first M3s were operational in late 1941 the U.S. Army needed a good tank and coupled with Great Britain's demand for a medium tank immediately, the Lee began production by late 1940.
Brought in towards the end of WW2 by the US army, the M26 Pershing was designed and built to counter the German heavy tanks like the Tiger and King Tiger.
The Churchill was one of the heaviest allied tanks of the war, best known for its heavy armour, large longitudinal chassis with all-around tracks with multiple bogies, and its use as the basis of many specialist vehicles.
The most produced Cruiser tank the European theatre! Armed with a potent 75mm gun and with good cross country performance this vehicle was more than a match for the venerable Panzer IV!
The Panzer II (also known as Panzerkampfwagen II), was a light tank that saw action at the start of and throughout the war and an almost all battlefields.
The classic Panzer 4H with shurzen side skirts. This was perhaps the most common foe that British, American or Russian tank crews found themselves engaging, and this version of the workhorse of the German armoured force went right through to the end of the war, never fully being replaced by the mark J which was the next mark in line.
The Tiger is probably the best known of all German tanks of World War II and certainly the tank most feared by the Allies!
The Tiger II, also called King Tiger or Royal Tiger by the Allies, was a development of the famous Tiger Tank. It only started operating in 1944, too late to have an adequate impact on the war. However it was feared and respected by the Allies whose tanks could be easily destroyed by the high velocity 88mm gun mounted on its turret.
This version II of the Tiger's armour was still very thick but was also more sloped, a design feature borrowed from the Panther medium tank. It was deployed on both the German western and Eastern fronts and had enormous operational accuracy even at long distances.
First deployed in 1940, the T-34 was a Soviet medium tank which had a profound and permanent effect on the fields of tank tactics and design. It has often been described as the most effective, efficient, and influential design of World War II.
The KV tanks were a series of heavy tanks, named after the Soviet defence commissar and politician Kliment Voroshilov. Known for their extremely heavy armour protection during the early part of the War, especially during the first year of the invasion of the Soviet Union.
The Chi Ha tank was one of the most heavily produced Japanese tanks used in World War 2 with over 2,000 units being made.
Arguably the best tank made by the Japanese during WWII up until 1945, the ShinHoTo was an upgrade to the original Chi-Ha tank.
Have a Great Battle!
