7th Armoured Division #2

Today's Megablitz offering is the first of the 7th AD's divisional troops. I suppose technically they are support troops but we already have a Support Group and according to this OOB these toys are not part of the SG. What we have here is 3rd RHA with their 2pdr AT guns and Morris tractor/LOG vehicles. I may have a go at converting my next A/T regiment into a 2pdr-Portee. As we all know the 2pdr, at this stage of the war, was pretty deadly to all Italian armoured vehicles; less so to trucks and the like due to not having a HE round. the bizarre thing is that a 2pdr HE was available but was never supplied.

3rd Regt RHA:



The toys are by Zvezda (2pdr) & Corgi (Morris Truck)

All the best!
