BFMMM01 Miniatures Box Set

When the war broke out in 1939, many in Britain expected a repeat of the First World War with the army joining the French in the trenches. They would build up an unbeatable material advantage and then smash the German trenches and roll on to Berlin.

The old gang of Swinton, Ricardo and Wilson who created the diamond-shaped heavy tanks of the First World War advised the General Staff to request designs for a ‘shelled area’ infantry tank to lead the breakthrough. The A20 specification called for a modernized version of the old heavy tank with all-round tracks, shell-proof armor, a field gun in the hull front, and two pdr guns in side sponsons! The ideal tank for the last war.

Fosters of Lincoln who had built the heavy tanks in the First World War worked with ‘The Old Gang’ to create a massive 81-ton tank, the TOG (short for The Old Gang!).

The first version with sponson-mounted armament wasn’t finished until after the German Blitzkrieg demolished the army in France.
