The Afrika Korps used a mix of light and heavy armored cars for reconnaissance and to protect themselves from marauding British armored cars. The more numerous light four-wheeled armored cars were supported by giant 8-wheelers capable of moving cross-country faster than most tanks.
The German Afrika Korps is a hard-fighting force of tough veteran troops who have won many battles and expect to win many more. Their Panzer III and Panzer IV tanks outclass the British tanks they face, and have been steadily upgraded to maintain their edge over the opposition. Their infantry are organized to have ‘few men, many weapons’, so they pack a ferocious punch whether facing infantry or tanks. These are backed by the famous ‘88’ dual-purpose anti-tank/anti-aircraft gun and the Stuka dive bomber.
