Under the command of the Desert Fox himself, Erwin Rommel, field the new German Deutsches Afrikakorps DAK 1000 point force!

The Deutsches Afrikakorps, also known as the DAK, was the German expeditionary force in Africa during the North Africa campaign. They were initially sent to aid the Italian forces who were already deployed there after they lost ground against the British forces. With subsequent reinforcements, the DAK eventually pushed the British back and thus started a tug-of-war over the Western Desert.

This army starter set contains everything you'll ever need to field a DAK force just like they would have been deployed in the desert! With heavy elements of infantry and transportation, this army suits those who want to control the battlefield through tactical outmanoeuvring.

This set contains:

  • 1 x Afrika Korps Plastic box Set
  • 1 x Afrika Korps HQ Blister pack
  • 1 x Afrika Korps MMG Team Blister pack
  • 1 x Afrika Korps Medium Mortar Team Blister pack
  • 1 x Afrika Korps 5cm PaK 38 anti-tank gun Blister pack
  • 3 x Opel Blitz/Maultier Plastic box sets
  • 1 x Open-topped Kfz 69/70 Horch 1a
  • 1 x Sd.Kfz 231 (8-Rad) Armoured Car
  • 1 x Order Dice pack - Olive Drab
  • 1 x Bolt Action Afrika Korps Dice Bag
  • 1 x Armies of Germany 2nd Edition with Special Miniature

This entire force has been optimised for mobile rapid offensives almost identical to its real-life counterpart. Almost all of the infantry can be placed in the back of each vehicle which makes this army extremely potent at objective type missions!
