Außerdem erscheint die zweite Welle für die Australier des Pazifik-Krieges.

The second wave of Australians has hit the shores of the Pacific theatre! The guerilla warfare has intensified!

Australian 40mm Bofors AA gun (Pacific) – 18.00 GBP

BA 01 BA 02

One of the most popular and recognisable anti-aircraft guns of WWII, the Bofors was used by many Allied and Axis forces. Often firing over open sights at ground targets as well as it’s intended role as an anti-craft gun, the Bofors was the most common anti-aircraft gun of the war. The Bofors saw action in every theatre, and provided a reliable anti-aircraft mount that is still in use to this day! Wherever possible, the Australians deployed their Bofors guns to defend against marauding Japanese aircraft, especially around Allied airfields.

Australian 2-pdr light anti-tank gun (Pacific) – 13.00 GBP

BA 03 BA 04 BA 05 BA 06

At the outbreak of war, the QF 2-pdr was the standard anti-tank gun of the British Army. It was an adequate weapon for the time, being slightly more effective in terms of armour penetration then the contemporary German 37mm PaK 36. Most anti-tank men were reassigned under the Jungle Division restructure. Those few that remained formed ‘Tank Attack’ units and were equipped with both 2pdr and 6pdr AT guns supplied from Britain, although these were of very limited use in the jungle environment of New Guinea and so only saw regular usage in Borneo from 1944 onwards.

Australian 6-pdr anti-tank gun (Pacific) – 13.00 GBP

BA 07 BA 08 BA 09

The QF 6-pdr was the highly successful replacement for the 2-pdr, being copied by the Americans as the 57mm gun, M1. Its useful lifespan was extended by new developments in ammunition that improved its armour penetration capabilities allowing it to knock out heavy tanks from the flank. Although supplemented by the 17-pdr, it was never entirely replaced and continued to serve in infantry units long after the war ended.

Australian 75mm pack howitzer (Pacific) – 13.00 GBP

BA 10 BA 11 BA 12

The ubiquitous 25pdr was the standard artillery piece of the Australian Army in the Pacific theatre, as it had been in the desert. The complete lack of roads and the dense jungle terrain encountered on the Pacific islands meant that deploying these guns was extremely difficult. One solution was to modify the gun by removing the gun shield and shortening the barrel. These were known as the 25pdr ‘Short’ and were 500kg lighter than the original, able to be man-handled and air-dropped. The special anti-tank ammunition was not normally issued in the Pacific theatre.

Australian platoon scout team (Pacific) – 5.00 GBP

BA 13 BA 14

Japanese ambushes required a change in tactics to the desert fighting experienced so far. Instead of having the majority of a platoon’s sections ‘up front’, the Australians learnt to hold their platoons main strength in reserve until the enemy revealed himself. The forward scouts led the way for their platoon, risking death at any moment, this job was rotated regularly to make sure the scouts were always alert.

Australian medic team (Pacific) – 8.00 GBP

BA 15 BA 16 BA 17

Medical support in the jungle was vital, with tropical diseases causing more casualties than enemy fire. Lucky for the Australians, they could call on the local Papuans to assist them in evacuating the wounded by stretcher as the terrain made it impossible for vehicles to perform this role. In the Pacific theatre, the Japanese often deliberately targeted medics, so the Australians stopped wearing the Red Cross and some went into action armed.

Australian Forward Observer team (Pacific) – 5.00 GBP

BA 18 BA 19

Although the terrain prevented constant artillery support, in some key battles the Australian Field Regiment’s 25pdrs could be dragged into position to soften up a Japanese defensive position. If conditions were suitable, Australians could also call upon the 1st Tactical Air Force consisting of RAAF fighter-bombers.

Kachin Native Irregular Squad – 15.00 GBP

BA 20 BA 21

All sides made extensive use of native irregulars in the Burma theatre. Allied forces received help from Naga tribesmen in the mountainous northwest and from Chin, Karen and Kachin irregulars. These troops risked their lives many times over to help the deep penetration raids conducted into the inhospitable jungles and mountains in the north of the country.
This blister contains 10 men, in various poses, most of them armed with rifles except the NCO who has a submachine gun.

The New Guinea campaign spanned several years and thousands of miles; to even attempt to summarise such a huge campaign into a book of this size is to accept that it cannot do justice to those who fought in it. Many critical battles have not been presented as scenarios in this book, merely due to the constraints of the book size and the author’s wish to present a variety of very different scenarios for players. For those who are interested in a more in-depth look at the actual historical events surrounding the New Guinea campaign, a bibliography is provided to aid you in your research

  • Wow das ist mal ein Release. Ich suche nach deutschen und Amerikanern noch eine dritte Fraktionen. Die Australier gefallen mir gut. Da steckt Arbeit in den Modellen und der sogar die Gesichter sind hier vernünftig bemalbar ( siehe Mann auf der Trage). Guter Start in den Mittwoch!

  • Echt verwirrend, dass das Buch New Guinea zwischen den Neuerscheinungen aufgeführt wird, immerhin ist das seit letzem Jahr draußen. Aber das ist wohl eher Warlord zuzuschreiben.

  • wann soll Bolt Action ihre DAK und 8. Armee freilassen? Ich habe ihr Web gesehen und sie haben nichts darüber gesagt, nur in Bezug auf die Aussies.
