M18 – Tank Destroyer Platoon (Plastic) (UBX93)

Flames of War – Bulge: American New Releases

The 705th Tank Destroyer Battalion is one of the first equipped with the new M18 Hellcat tank destroyer. Its small profile and powerful gun make it a quick success. The M18 was purpose-built for the TD men, taking on-board feedback in the field, designed with a unique suspension system, and stripped down to only the minimum armor needed to stop rifle fire.

M24 – Chaffee Tank Platoon (Plastic) (UBX94)

Flames of War – Bulge: American New Releases

The new M24 Chaffee is an excellent replacement for the M5A1 Stuart. It combines a powerful 75mm gun with the speed of a light tank, making it a deadly new weapon in the arsenal of freedom.

M26 – Pershing Tank Platoon (Plastic) (UBX90)

Flames of War – Bulge: American New Releases

The T26/M26 Pershing was the outcome of a series of prototype designs for replacing the M4 Sherman. The M26 was a 42-tonne vehicle, armed with an M3 90mm L/50 gun, the same that equipped the M36 tank destroyer.

M36 or M10 – Tank Destroyer Platoon (Plastic) (UBX89)

Flames of War – Bulge: American New Releases

As German tanks became harder to deal with, the tank destroyer arm decided to up-gun their M10s with the M3 90mm anti-aircraft gun. A larger turret was designed to hold the new weapon. The new vehicle was designated the M36 90mm GMC.

M15 & M16 – AAA Platoon (Plastic) (UBX87)

Flames of War – Bulge: American New Releases

When enemy air is on the prowl, use the Triple A platoon to guard your valuable guns and positions. Even when aircraft are not a threat, the anti-aircraft artillery can saturate enemy strongpoints and pin down the enemy with a tremendous amount of fire.

T27 – Xylophone Rocket Launcher Battery (US145)

Flames of War – Bulge: American New Releases

The 2nd Infantry Division first used the T27 4.5" (114mm) Xylophone rocket-launcher in August 1944. They rated them poorly because they were not effective as single launchers. They are now paired up and placed on the back of a 2½-ton truck for better mobility and stronger bombardments.
