The force is based around the Hungarian 2. Armoured Division between April 1944– early 1945. Early April was when the Division deployed and the later period allows me to add some German assistance to the group.
May 1944 the Germans initially gifted some armoured vehicles to the Hungarian 3rd Tank Regiment to replace their losses. (I’ve avoided Hungarian language to speed up the typing!). This consisted of some Tiger 1, Pz IV, StuG and as time progressed started to sell material to the Hungarians where new equipment (StuG & JgdPz 38(t)) became available to them.The Hungarians had a ‘bit of a hard time’ with their Turán’s which were outdated by the time they actually went into production, although the Hungarian tanks crews acquitted themselves well with what they had. I have a couple of Tigers to add along with a couple of platoons of JgdPz 38(t) along with 1-2 Panther for the late 1944 supply of around 5 Panthers to the Hungarians.
Apologies for the crap photos, I borrowed a mate's camera which does take a great photograph, it's just not idiot proof me-thinks!
