1st US Armored Division in Tunisia, 1943, in 20mm size and for RF! rules
The green 1st US Armored Division (the "Old Ironsides") is famous for its action - and losses - around mid February 1943 in Tunisia against the DAK veterans. In time the division will become much better and won´t "charge across the planes" as it was taught to do in exercises, only to be picked by flanking fire and became an important unit in the fighting in Italy until the enemy's surrender. The models are: Tanks- Hasegawa, Matchbox, MiniGeneral, Esci and Airfix; M7s - Matchbox; M3 GMC - Airfix conversions; Dodge HMC - Esci.
