Machine gun position at cobbled 'T' juction


Product Code: RD/TMG

This wargames terrain modular road section represents a 'T' junction cobbled road with manhole cover. The manhole cover is removable so that a wargames  figure can be positioned 'popping up' through the manhole in ambush. This terrain model comes complete with a 28mm german figure (top half only to fit at road level) with MG42 and shield.

These positions would comprise the machine gunner and an anti-tank obstacle such as hedgehogs or steel posts (not included but available separately).

Cobles or cobbs were large chunks of stone, cut roughly square, and set into the road surface. Whilst hard wearing they did not always provide a smooth ride! The manhole is a means of access to the underground drainage sewers. primarily used for maintenance of the sewer they also became useful 'pop-up' positions for troops which used the sewers as a means of hidden movement around the city. The urban battleflield is truly 3 dimensional.

During WW2 city sewers were used by both sides to move around the city without being seen. Particularly in Stalingrad. See the modular sewer terrain models. Not only will you have to watch the windows, doors and roofs but now the sewers and cellars as potential ambush sites.

History has shown that fighting in built up areas (FIBUA) is one of the most demanding operational scenarios. The complex 3 dimensional terrain and close quarter nature of the combat makes it extremely costly for the attackers, which is hopefully reflected in your wargame rules. Conversely a small group of well prepared and determined defenders can resist a much larger attacking force. Our terrain and modular scenery buildings bring the challanges of fighting in built up areas to your wargame.
