The combined strength of both the British and American forces, combining all three branches of the Airforce, Navy, and Army struck across the beaches of Normandy trying to find a chink in the Germans impenetrable defences. The Germans put up a fight, making capturing the beaches hard, but the Allies secured a foothold on the beachheads. It was enough to withstand the following German Counter-attacks and eventually break out of Normandy. The war for western Europe was now being fought in earnest, as the Allies raced to liberate France and bring the war to Hitler’s front door.
Armoured troops are designed for the attack. With their speed and hitting power they can easily roll over enemy formations after moving to the flank and engaging them. The hardhitting 17 pdr of the Firefly tank can take on the toughest German targets.
Cromwell Armoured Troop (Plastic) includes four plastic Cromwell tanks, one Firefly or Sherman tank, one Tank Commander Sprue, one Decal Sheet, and seven Unit Cards.
