Pzkw B2(f) Flamm in ASL

Post by Kopfdorfer »


Hi Guys ,

Just wondering . . .
Was there ever a counter made for the German BeutePanzer of the French Char B1bis , renovated as the
PzkwB2(f) Flamm by MMP ?
If so what module was it released with ?
I had an inkling that there was , and that it came with Pegasus Bridge , with the other French Beutepanzers.
Though at this point my aging memory is suspect.
I went to find it while brewing up a scenario in VASL , and couldn't find it.
The PzkwB2(f) was , but not the Flammmwerfer variant.
My game is in storage and I can't easily access it.
Help appreciated.

Hi Neal,

The Germans converted a number of French Char B1 tanks captured in 1940 to flammpanzers. German Vehicle Note #4 is a different beast all together. The Flamingos (Sd.Kfz.122 Pz.Kpfw II (F) Ausf A & B) were built on the chassis of Panzer II Ausf.D1 tanks and modified as flamethrowers.

The vehicle Kompfdorfer is referring to is depicted below:

Yes there are counters for the German conversions. I have seen them and I believe they came in a From the Cellar pack, but I am not sure of that. Hakkaa Palle! does have the captured tank as a German counter without the flame thrower.

Okay , Thanks Guys.
I haven't purchased any ASL Stuff in a decade , and I still have a niggling thought that I had a
counter for this Vehicle but perhaps I am mistaken.
I definitely haven't purchased Haake Palle.

Hi Kopdorfer,

A quick look at the ASL Scenario Archive shows that 6 scenarios have the PzKpfw B2 740 (f) listed in the OB. Four of these scenarios are published by Critical Hit, which indicates there are probably counters for the PzKpfw B2 740 (f) somewhere among their multitudinous ASL offerings. Unfortunately, from what I've seen of Critical Hit's vehicle counters, there probably isn't any sort of corresponding Chapter H data.

One of the scenarios is published by Lone Canuck; however, I don't see a PzKpfw B2 740 (f) among their counters.

Just as Prester John speculated, la Franc Tireur produced PzKpfw B2 740 (f) counters (looks like 2 in blue and 3 in SS black) in From the Cellar Pack 3. Included with the pack and counters are vehicle notes. Those early LFT packs aren't readily available, but they do show up on sites such as Noble Knight Games from time to time.
