Posted on September 18th, 2014 under , , . Posted by

When deciding on support for my Remagen King Tiger list, I hemmed and hawed over which AA to take. Finally, I settled on the standard 2cm AA (GE542) because it was a light gun with a gunshield. I thought mobility would be helpful, especially as I plann…

Hi fellow wargamers I’ve recently finished some Landsverk AA for my Finnish Panssarikomppania.
