Soft plastic figures are very below average. Guns are fantastic though.

5cm Tank-Hunter Platoon (Plastic) (GBX115)

Flames of War: Iron Cross New Releases

5cm PaK38 guns are mounted on light frames, so that troops can move them into difficult areas where they can surprise enemy targets. They are built low to the ground, making them easy to conceal. As Soviet tanks became more heavily armored, older anti-tank guns were replaced by the formidable 5cm PaK38 guns in late 1941.

10.5cm Artillery Battery (Plastic) (GBX117)

Flames of War: Iron Cross New Releases

The 10.5cm leFH18 light field howitzer's main mission was to support German attacks and to shatter enemy counterattacks before they reached their objective. They also provided a base of fire in a last-ditch line of defense.

SMG34 Machine-Gun Platoon (Plastic) (GE759)

Flames of War: Iron Cross New Releases

The heavy machineguns of the MG platoon are essential for setting up a base of fire to support an infantry assault or destroy a Soviet human wave attack. Mounted on a tripod for long-range accuracy and with plenty of ammunition, it is an excellent defensive weapon. The company's heavy machineguns are allocated to the most exposed platoons.

Mortar Platoon (Plastic) (GE760)

Flames of War: Iron Cross New Releases

Panzergrenadiers had mortar sections attached from the battalion's heavy-weapons platoon. These would be located close to the action to make sure the infantry was well supported with overhead artillery support, allowing them to bombard enemy infantry trying to hide behind cover and knock out enemy guns.
