  • PANZERWAFFE TARNFARBEN – CAMOUFLAGE COLOURS AND ORGANIZATION OF THE GERMAN ARMOURED FORCE (1917-1945)

    ENGLISH

    English & Spanish. 128 pages. Hard cover.

     

    During the Great War, the assault tanks in the German Army merely played an anecdotal role. Due to the restrictions enforced by the Treaty of Versailles, the first training unit for armoured forces wasn’t organised (secretly) until 1933. The existence of the first three Panzerdivisionen of that new German Army was officially revealed in 1935. The armoured troops or Panzertruppen were an independent branch of the Army, with their own command. This allowed concentrating the tanks in divisions so units were capable of significantly strategic deployments. General Heinz Guderian forged both words: Panzerwaffe to refer to the armoured force and
    Panzertruppen to identify the elitist armoured troops which would conquer half of Europe in the following years.
    The evolution of the camouflage schemes painted in tanks and vehicles of German armoured units is analysed in the book along with the organisation of these German units during WWI and WWII and the whole interwar period.

    Durante la Gran Guerra, los tanques de asalto en el ejército alemán simplemente jugaron un papel anecdótico. Debido a las restricciones impuestas por el Tratado de Versalles, la primera unidad de entrenamiento para las fuerzas blindadas no se organizó (lo hizo en secreto) hasta 1933. La existencia de las primeras tres Panzerdivisionen de ese nuevo ejército alemán se reveló oficialmente en 1935. Las tropas blindadas o Panzertruppen eran una rama independiente del ejército, con su propio mando. Esto permitió concentrar los tanques en divisiones para que las unidades fueran capaces de despliegues significativamente estratégicos. El general Heinz Guderian acuñó ambas palabras: Panzerwaffe para referirse a la fuerza blindada y Panzertruppen para identificar las tropas blindadas elitistas que conquistarían la mitad de Europa en
    los años siguientes.
    La evolución de los esquemas de camuflaje pintados en tanques y vehículos de unidades blindadas alemanas se analiza en este libro. Junto con la organización de éstas unidades alemanas durante
    la Primera y la Segunda Guerra Mundial y todo el período de entreguerras.

    This book shows the original German camouflage of vehicles used by the Deutsche Afrika Korps, with color variants throughout the war. We look at German Army vehicle colours for the African campaign, including the European Dark Gray (RAL 7021) in which they arrived to Libya. This continues through to the initial camouflage colours, Yellow-Brown RAL 8000 with Green-Gray spots RAL 7008 (in 1941), and the Yellow-Brown RAL 8020 and Sand Gray RAL 7027, used from1942. We also include a selection of Italian vehicles, often forgotten, which fought alongside the Germans against the Allies from 1941 to1943. This is supplemented by the addition of allied vehicles serving with the Axis troops, with some curious American halftracks with distinctive German markings. Over 170 profiles cover schemes from the most common camouflage to the most originals and unusuals vehicles used by the DAK and Regio Esercito, including major artillery pieces used in Africa, highlighting above all the powerful 88 mm Flak 18/36/37. Through the 108 pages of thisbook, the modeler will find inspiration for next African modelling projects.

This superb new title provides an unparalleled view of air combat in the skies of Britain and France, from dog-fighting between Messerschmitts and Spitfires during the campaign in the West and the Battle of Britain, to fighter bomber missions over southern England, to the Allied invasion of Normandy and the desperate sorties flown by the unit’s Fw 190s against the huge USAAF bomber streams.

    Authors: Erik Mombeeck, Maciej Góralczyk

    This new volume is devoted to JG 5 ‘Fighters of the Midnight Sun’. Nothing predestined young German fighter pilots to fly and fight among the grandiose landscapes of Norway, Finland or Lapland with their hostile climates. Many of them would find their last resting places in the storm-tossed icy waters of the Arctic Sea or the snow-covered plains of the tundra. Who even now knows that the defeat of the Wehrmacht was precipitated by the failure to conquer Europe’s northern-most small territory?

     

    This latest Luftwaffe Gallery ‘special issue’ tells the story of this fighter Geschwader and its numerous aces on 96 pages, filled with rare and newly translated first person accounts, over 240 photos (many previously unpublished) and 32 specially commissioned artworks that had been created by Janusz Światłoń.

    Authors: Erik Mombeeck, Maciej Góralczyk

    JG 54 was perhaps the most fascinating fighter Geschwader of the Luftwaffe, not least for modellers. This is in large measure due to the variety of non-standard colour schemes worn by the unit’s Bf 109 and Fw 190 fighters as well as the diversity of its emblems and insignia displayed both early and late in the war.

     

    On 96 pages of this latest Luftwaffe Gallery ‘special issue’ we highlight the story of this fighter Geschwader through rare and newly translated first person accounts, 207 photos of which many are published for the first time, and 32 specially commissioned profiles that had been created by Thierry Dekker.

    Author: Erik Mombeeck

    Several factors characterise the history of JG 77: the diversity of its origins, the fact that the Geschwader fought on all fronts, flying the Messerschmitt Bf 109 throughout (except for a very brief interlude on Macchi 205), the striking number and quality of its insignia and the fact that it had in its ranks a large number of the leading fighter aces.

     

    Through newly translated personal accounts, over 230 photos and 31 colour profiles, we tell the story of this unit on 96 pages of this ‘special issue’ of Luftwaffe Gallery.
