My Megablitz units: Germany – 389th Infantry Division (1943)

My German Megablitz forces include the 389th Infantry Division. This was formed in February 1942 and was assigned to Army Group South. It took part in the battles for Stalingrad, where it was destroyed. It was re-formed in February 1943.

My Megablitz 389th Infantry Division consists of:
  • HQ (Staff Car + Command figure)
  • 389th Divisional Supply Column (Truck)
  • 544th Grenadier Regiment
    • I/544th Grenadier Battalion (Infantry)
    • II/544th Grenadier Battalion (Infantry)
  • 545th Grenadier Regiment
    • I/545th Grenadier Battalion (Infantry)
    • II/545th Grenadier Battalion (Infantry)
  • 546th Grenadier Regiment
    • I/546th Grenadier Battalion (Infantry)
    • II/546th Grenadier Battalion (Infantry)
  • 389th Artillery Regiment (105mm leFH 18 Howitzer + SdKfz 7 + Spotter figure)
  • 389th Panzerjäger Battalion (50mm PaK 38 AT Gun)
  • 389th Fusilier Battalion (Infantry)
  • 389th Pioneer Battalion (Engineers + Truck)
Notes on the figures, weapons, and vehicles:
My Megablitz 389th Infantry Division was put together from a variety of different sources:
  • Most of the figures are from the 20mm German World War II range produced by SHQ, although there is at least one made by Skytrex.
  • The 105mm Howitzer and 50mm PAK guns are Skytrex models.
  • The vehicles are either Airfix (the Kubelwagen, the modified SdKfz 7 and the larger Opel Blitz) or ROCO (the smaller Opel Blitz) models.
