WAVE VIII Available at your FLGS, direct below or from your favourite online retailer
We’ve brought you heavy, light & medium tanks & tank destroyers…
It’s time to BRING OUT THE ARTILLERY!
This wave is the Self Propelled Gun wave, and we kick things off with the Brits! The British Sexton II is an SPG for the commander on a budget. SPGs bring a raft of new mechanics to the game, and the Sexton II is no exception; use Burst HE Shells to cause a massive explosion, stunning all nearby tanks, or load Light HEAT Shells for more damage. Of course, the highlight of SPGs is their ability to fire anywhere at any spotted target, so add Requesting Fire and your British can now receive support anywhere on the table.
If you want your SPGs to play a more damage-dealing role in your platoon, look no further than the German Hummel. This SPG hits hard, packing 7 Firepower to all but ensure you dish out critical hits. All SPGs fire HE rounds, but if you’re not a fan of HE, consider loading Heavy HEAT Shells to remove HE and add Big Gun to guarantee damage is dealt. The new SPG-specific upgrades are available here as well, Burst HE Shell and Requesting Fire, to provide support for your platoon.
The American M7 Priest gives your Americans some long-range fire support. Requesting Fire allows you to draw Line of Sight from any friendly vehicle, allowing your SPGs to hit targets that would otherwise be behind cover. Pair this with your light tanks and keep your SPGs hidden to create a deadly combination! You can also load Burst HE Shells to apply the new Stunned Critical token to all enemy tanks within Close Range and Line of Sight of your target, or load Light HEAT Shells for when damage matters more than critical hits.
The Soviet SU-76M is an extremely low-cost Tank Destroyer for the budget-conscious commander needing some additional support. It won’t take on the newest, heaviest tanks on its own, but alongside a platoon of aggressive tanks you’ll find it very capable of landing crucial blows. We couldn’t skip out an SPG however, so you’ll also find an entire tank card for the Soviet SU-122A in the box. Using the same model, suddenly your little tank-destroyer has a bigger gun, Firepower 7, and is ready to fling shells across the entire battlefield!
