The armoured squadron is the strike force of the British Army. With their exceptionally fast Cromwell tanks, the ‘Desert Rats’ have the ability to rapidly strike the enemy rear area and relentlessly pursue the slower enemy forces. This speed allows the armoured squadron to continually work around to the weaker flanks of enemy formations, always striking from the side rather than slogging their way up the middle.
British Desert Rats Squadron includes:
• Five Plastic Cromwell (75mm) tanks • One Pastic Firefly (17 pdr) tanks • Four Plastic Stuart (37mm) tanks • Three Churchill Crocodile tanks • One Paratrooper Platoon • Three Universal Carriers • Four 25 pdr Guns • Two Plastic M10 tank destoryers • Complete A5 Flames Of War rulebook • One British "Start Here" Guide • Two Decal Sheets • Seventeen Unit cards
For a limited time only boxes of Unit Cards will be available for each Flames Of War Late War book. The packs will contain one of each Unit Card that relates to their book. The packs have been designed to assist existing players that have already bought our miniatures and built their armies under previous editions and want cards to help transition to V4.
On June 6th, 1944 the Allied forces launched one of the largest amphibious assaults in history. This book follows the British and Commonwealth forces that overcame the German defences and claimed Sword, Gold, and Juno beaches as well as the breakout after, and guides you through building your own British D-Day force!
The units in the book are broken down into three major groups: regular war weary units that form the backbone of your forces, the famous Desert Rat veterans, and a selection of elite troops like the Commandos and Airborne units. These options are perfect to build any army for D-Day and the breakout.
Even though they are toy soldiers, your troops react to heavy fire like real soldiers. Sometimes they get pinned down or bail out of their tanks. They can dig foxholes for protection or go to ground, hiding from the enemy.

2x Ranged In tokens; 4x Foxholes tokens; 8x Pinned Down/ Bailed Out tokens; 1x Leader token; 4x Gone To Ground tokens; 1x Anti-Aircrafttoken; 2x Objectivetokens.
