German units in Warfront: Turning Point
The following contains a list of infantry and vehicles that feature in the game Warfront: Turning Point.
The Wehrmacht Infantry is the first line infantry of the German Army, equipped with an MP40 sub machine gun. The Wehrmacht Infantry units are cheap, but well trained. In great numbers very fast and effective.
The Wehrmacht Panzerfaust is the primary Anti-Tank Infantry in the German Army, equipped with a Panzerfaust, capable of engaging light, and medium armored vehicles
The Wehrmacht Jetpack Infantry is an advanced and experimental elite infantry squad equipped with a jetpack and a flamethrower. The Jetpack Infantry is able to jump long distances; enabling it to traverse otherwise impassable terrain, jump over objects, or large numbers of enemy units.
The regular Paratrooper is the light level air-to-ground support armed with a light machinegun. A modified Junkers carries and drops regular infantry units to the selected target area.
Heavy Paratroops Infantry
The Heavy Paratrooper is the medium level air-to-ground support. A modified Junkers carries and drops Panzerfaust troopers to the selected target area.
Commando Paratroops Infantry
The Commando Paratrooper is the high-level air-to-ground support equipped with a jetpack and flamethrower. A modified Junkers carries and drops Jetpack units to the selected target area.
The German heavy trooper, also known as The Exoskeleton is an experimental weapon of the Wehrmacht, equipped with heavy armor, long range heavy machine guns and six medium range rockets. The Exoskeletons are very effective against almost all kinds of ground units, including light and medium tanks.
The Flammwagen APC is a modified German armored personnel carrier armed with flamethrowers. It has a relatively short range of fire, but it is able to do great damage against infantry units, bunkers, lightly armored vehicles and buildings. The Flammwagen units are very dangerous in groups. It can also carry 12 infantrymen.
The Wurfrahmen, which literally means "Throwing Frame," was Germany's answer to the Russian Katyusha rocket launching vehicle. By attaching a specialized launch rack to a SdKfz 251 fighting vehicle, the Germans had quickly created a mobile rocket platform nicknamed "Stuka zu Fuss" ("Stuka by foot") for its ability to deal massive amounts of damage while maintaining a high level of mobility. The Wurfrahmen fires 280mm or 300mm explosive rockets, or 320mm incendiary rockets.
July 5, 1943 was the first time Russian forces would encounter the German Panther tank during operation "Citadel". Unfortunately for Germany, more than 80% of its Panther units failed due to mechanical issues. It didn't take long for Germany to come up with a better design for the Panther, which soon became the mainstay of German armored combat forces. In War Front: Turning Point, the Panther is a flexible unit, capable of performing multiple roles on the battlefield.
The Tiger is a legendary combat vehicle. Built using a design that was far ahead of its time, the Tiger and its 88 mm main cannon were a force to be feared on the battlefield. In the hands of experienced commanders, the Tiger dominated in every battle. In War Front, the Tiger is considered a medium-heavy battle tank.
The Elephant is the German heavy tank-hunter, which has heavy armor and an armor-piercing heavy weapon. The greatest disadvantage of the tank is the turret's stabilizer system. The Elephant needs to stop to open fire on any target.
The Maus is the German heavy tank of the Wehrmacht, which has very heavy armor and weaponry, but the lack of speed and maneuverability makes the Maus a formidable heavy tank.
The Hummel is the German Howitzer artillery, which was built on to the older PZKW III chassis. It's able to provide mobile artillery support for friendly ground units from a great distance. The Hummel is very effective against base defenses and buildings.
The German Sonic Tank is an experimental, advanced high-end prototype technology, which is able to blast sonic waves, dealing great damage to ground forces, damaging everything in their path
The Wirbelwind German armored anti-aircraft unit weighs 22 tons and represents an effective defense against any hostile air units. Based on the Tank IV chassis, the Wirbelwind packs four 20 mm cannons, and can fire 600 rounds per minute.
The Rheintochter is a mobile Anti-Bomber weapon equipped with a ground-to-air guided missile. Its tracking system never misses its target, and the rocket instantly destroys any airplanes.
Messerschmitt (ME 262)
In 1938, the Messerschmitt Corporation was given the order to develop a jet-powered aircraft for the Luftwaffe. The 262 was the only jet-powered plane to become available during the war, and its incredible combat-readiness made it the pride of the German Air Force.
Stuka (JU 87)
The Stuka dive bomber was one of the more recognized aircrafts of the war. Its unique ability to dive at a 70 degree angle made it almost impossible to be hit by anti-aircraft fire, however it was unable to defend itself in air-to-air combat.
The Horten is a jet-propelled long-range bomber equipped with heavy, high explosive bombs, capable of making devastating carpet-bombing runs against enemy ground units, base defenses and buildings. The Horten is fast and maneuverable; it is equipped with medium armor making it less vulnerable against AA guns and enemy fighters.
A heavy bomber able to erase base defenses, buildings and large concentrations of hostile ground forces and formations with one bombing run. The lack of speed and maneuverability makes the Junkers vulnerable to Anti-Aircraft weaponry and fighters.
The Giant Zeppelin is an experimental aircraft. With its aluminum structure, advanced engines, and large air-to-ground artillery cannons, the Giant Zeppelin is a great threat to every enemy ground unit. It's only vulnerable to Anti-Aircraft weaponry and enemy fighters. If a Giant Zeppelin is shot down, the explosion harms nearby units in a moderate radius.
