Not often that you can buy 33% of a production run in one box.

I was going to say something similar. However I will want a couple of these myself (2 vehicles not boxes) for the new Battlegroup Torch rules, so I am glad they are easily available again.

Actually there were 9 altogether. 6 were delivered Jan 42 and a further 3 in Feb 1942.Not sure if all 9 were availble at any one time.

They were mainly used in the Gazalla battle. This is the only time when "numbers"of these Should be used.

No worries even if only 2 of something were built every FoW army you face will have at least one of them! Another reason nobody I know plays FoW anymore! Cheers!

Well that wouldn't worry me with the rules I will be using as I wouldn't say they were game changers as such. But certainly around the Gazzalla period I will be looking at using 2 of these critters.
