General Ludwig Cruwell
Ludwig Cruwell was a senior Afrika Korps general under Erwin Rommel. Awarded the Knight’s Cross with Oak Leaves for bravery, he was captured by the British when his spotter plane mistook British troops for Italian soldiers and landed near them by mistake.
Rommel's ADLER Command Vehicle
During his time in North Africa, Field Marshal Erwin Rommel made use of several different vehicles to get around the battlefield – both German and captured British. Two of his personal favourites were a pair of SdKfz.250 half tracks especially adapted for his personal use, “GREIF” and “ADLER”. Back in 2007 K&C produced a “Strictly Limited” version of the “GREIF” which swiftly sold out and ever since has been much sought after on the ‘secondary market’. Now, we have produced a brand-new and much improved model of the other vehicle, the “ADLER”. Again this new model has a fully detailed interior and two complete figures, a driver and a radio operator. Unlike the first Command Vehicle this new version also has a 2-colour camouflage scheme.
