Enfilade gun emplacment 50mm

£29.50

Product Code: ENF/50

 The gun is included as a three part resin assembly to complete this wargames terrain model. The gun itself has a cast-in metal barrel.

The VF600 was one of the most common gun positions. The Vf600 – SK, basic Vf600 gun emplacement, was widely modified to suit local conditions. One of the more notable modifications was to reinforce the standard design with a massive 3.5 metre thick glacis added toward the enemy approach direction to provide protection against gun fire from artillery and tanks. This is reflected in  this wargames terrain model. This wargames terrain model represents a shorter version of the parapet Vf600. In addition a reinforced concrete roof was constructed over the gun. This is also reflected in  this wargames terrain model and is removable to allow easy access to your wargames figures. The lip of the roof was formed with a zigzag pattern as a crude type of camouflage, which is also incorporated inthis wargames terrain fortification. The position was designed to provide enfilade fire across the enemy’s approach.


Given the history and effectiveness of these gun emplacements they would make excellent scenario objectives. Whilst holding up the armour your infantry assault teams would have to outflank and assault the gun from its more vulnerable side. Of course the enemy would have thought of that and would have protected this postion with supporting machine gun tobruks or sanbag machine gun nests (these wargame terrain models are available separately). Good luck with that!

 

Dimensions

The enfilade gun wargames terrain emplacement model is approximately 133mm wide by 75mm high (average) by 176mm front to back, including base. The internal dimensions of the emplacement are 59mm deep and 59mm wide, and will provide sufficient cover for most 25mm to 28mm wargames figures. This gun emplacement is complete with a demountable roof and the clear dimension (in which a figure must fit) is 38mm, which should suit most 25mm to 28mm gun crew figures. Please note that this wargames terrain model is heavy and extra care should be taken when lifting or not to drop when moving.


The gun is included as part of this wargames terrain and comprises three parts, which will require superglue to assemble and a brass rod pin is included for insertion into the base. Adult supervision will be required. We recommend that the pedestal is mounted on the pin in the emplacement first, then the gun. The shield will need to be aligned with the top of the wargames terrain emplacement to ensure it is level before gluing into place. The gun barrel may stay in place without gluing and as such the elevation can be altered. However, we would also recommend gluing this in place at an angle to suit your requirements.


This model can be combined with the anti-tank wall system or tobruks ringstande wargame terrain models to form a long impenetrable defence. You can also leave a gap in the anti-tank wall for access but this can be reinforced by using the anti-tank wall system with steel barrier and this can be supported with “ringstande” wargames terrain tobruks, complete with captured French tank turrets (also available).

This terrain model is also suitable for 1/48 scale model dioramas.
