Restock: 8.8cm Flak 36 – Anti-Aircraft Anti-Tank Gun

8.8cm Flak 36 - Anti-Aircraft Anti-Tank Gun

About the 8.8 cm FlaK 36:

First created in 1934, the FlaK 18 or German 88 was developed in secret to avoid the restrictions of the Treaty of Versailles in 1919. The improved FlaK 36 followed soon after and became a favorite among German Army personnel because of its ability to slice through armor as far as 1,800 meters away. Though mostly used for air defense, the FlaK 36 saw some action as an anti-tank weapon as well, although its size and weight made it difficult to transport across uneven or soft terrain.

Later in the war, the FlaK 36 was mounted on railway cars and vehicles and was even used as the main weapon in the heavily armored German Tiger Tank.

Additional Information:
Brickmania’s latest FlaK 36 kit features new ambush camo and a traversable gun that rotates a full 360° and elevates to 90°.

Restock: WWII US Army Ranger – 2nd Rangers at Pointe du Hoc

WWII US Army Ranger - 2nd Rangers at Pointe du Hoc

About the WWII US Army Ranger – 2nd Rangers at Pointe du Hoc

One of the most infamous assaults in Operation Overlord, the taking of Pointe du Hoc provided an essential position for Allied forces to solidify their foothold in France. Located atop a 100-foot cliff, the German defenses had a perfect artillery placement to fire on American forces invading at Omaha and Utah beaches. It was up to Lt. Col. James E. Rudder and the 2nd Ranger battalion to climb the monstrous cliffs and capture the German artillery units. Despite excruciating casualties, the Rangers captured the guns and defended them for two days. When they were finally relieved by Allied forces, just 90 of the initial 225 Rangers still stood combat ready.

The WWII Pointe du Hoc US Army Ranger minifig features 360° UV printed Normandy assault gear, Ranger sleeve insignia, and 2nd Battalion Rangers emblem on the helmet. This minifig was designed by Lando and custom printed at Brickmania HQ.

Restock: LeFH 18/40 – 10.5cm Light Howitzer

LeFH 18/40 - 10.5cm Light Howitzer

About the LeFH 18/40 10.5cm Light Howitzer (Ambush Camo):

Born from the German Army’s need for a lighter, more transportable howitzer, the 10.5 cm LeFH 18/40 first saw action in 1942 and continued service until the end of the war in 1945. Featuring a double-baffled muzzle brake, the LeFH 18/40 barrel and gun mount connected to a two-wheeled trailer with a split trail leg recoil system that doubled as a tow leg while in transport. Crewed by four to six soldiers, the LeFH 18/40 was capable of firing six to eight rounds per minute, with an effective range of nearly 14,000 yards.

New Release: S-Tank – Stridsvagn 103 Main Battle Tank

S-Tank - Stridsvagn 103 Main Battle Tank

About the S-Tank – Stridsvagn 103 Main Battle Tank:

Designed and manufactured in Sweden during the Cold War, the Stridsvagn 103 or S-Tank was the first tank of its kind to use a turbine engine, which led to its unique low profile design. The purpose of the design was for the S-Tank to act as a defensive weapon, fortifying itself and its crew in a well protected area and then using the tank’s suspension to adjust the position of the gun. The tank was armed with a fixed Bofors 105mm L/62 and featured no turret, leaving the elevation and rotation of the gun to the tank’s revolutionary suspension system which could reach an elevation/depression of 22 degrees, better than most Cold War era tanks. Adding to its versatility, the S-Tank was also completely amphibious and could “swim” after less than 30 minutes of preparation.

Specifications:

  • Weight: 42.5 tonnes (49 tons)
  • Crew: 3
  • Speed: 50 km/h (31 mph)
  • Range: 390 km (290 mi)

Additional information about this Brickmania® custom building kit:

Expertly designed to capture the unique shape of the S-Tank and equipped with a BrickArms® combat LMG, frontal RPG slat armor, and an opening top hatch, this Brickmania model includes a detailed suspension with a wide range of elevation/depression to accurately adjust the model’s fixed gun.

Model Statistics:

  • Designed by Andrew Somers
  • 850 LEGO®, BrickArms®, Brickmania® and Minifig.Cat elements
  • Custom printed minifig
  • Additional printed elements
  • High-quality sticker sheet
  • Full-color printed building instructions

Restock: SU-76 Self-Propelled Gun

SU-76 Self-Propelled Gun

About the SU-76 Self-Propelled Gun:

Another example of Soviet utility, the SU-76M was designed as an inexpensive, multi-purpose weapon. Over 12,000 produced between 1942 and 1945, this self-propelled gun helped the Soviet war effort by providing a weapon that could be deployed as both an anti-tank gun and light artillery piece. It could also be used for indirect fire. Mounted on a modified T-70 chassis, the SU-76M was equipped with a 76mm ZiS-3 gun and two PPSh submachine guns for crew defense.

Much like the T-34/76, the SU-76M saw widespread use on the Eastern Front, some of the first being at Kursk in summer 1943. Its weight (11 metric tons) made the SU-76M ideal for rough terrain and hastily constructed bridges. Despite its vulnerable open-topped design, the SU-76M also performed well in urban combat, providing infantry support and excellent observation capabilities.

Deployed through the Vietnam War, several well-preserved examples still survive in museums and memorials today.

  • Specifications:
  • Crew: 4
  • Engine: 2x GAZ-202 liquid-cooled gasoline
  • Range: 200 mi (320 km)
  • Speed: 28 mph (45 km/h)
  • Armament: 76mm ZiS-3 (Model 1942) gun, 2x PPSh submachine guns

Features:

  • Elevating Gun
  • Operating Hatches
  • Brickmania Track Links™️
  • High-Quality Sticker Sheet including Soviet unit markings and “battle-worn” pattern
  • LEGO® Tools
  • Red Army Certified Panzer-Dismantling Machine
  • 1/35th scale to match other Brickmania models
