New Panzer II from Gecko, highly recommended if you like big models!
During the 1940 French campaign, the Panzer II, a German light tank, played a prominent role in Blitzkrieg tactics. Although initially designed as a training tank, the Panzer II was mobilized to support Panzer divisions. With its speed and agility, it quickly infiltrated French territory, often outmaneuvering heavier tanks. Despite its light armor and modest armament, the Panzer II proved effective against most French tanks. Their participation in the rapid German offensive contributed to the success of the Blitzkrieg, changing the nature of armored warfare and setting a precedent for future military tactics.
