German Infantry Bicycle with Panzerfausts

The Battleground German Infantry Bicycle with Panzerfausts in 1:16 and 1:18 scale accurately replicates not only the features of the original scout bike but includes the added Panzerfausts which were attached to the handle bars.  The bike comes as a single piece so no assembly is required. 

 

The German army made widespread use of bicycles, known as Truppenfahrrad, throughout World War 2.  Most were equipped with a case that was attached to the cross bar.  The case could hold a single MG42 ammunition can.  During the latter part of the war, they found a very unique and powerful combination when adding their anti-tank weapons like Panzerfausts with the silent and highly mobile infantry bicycle.   Soldiers so equipped could move stealthily and quickly to take position near enemy armor, fire their weapons and quickly escape in situations where a tank would be too noisy or an anti-tank gun would have been quickly spotted after the first shot.
