WEAPONS DETAIL: Weapon looks like a German 3.7cm PAK 36 anti-tank gun, or a Hungarian Rebarreled of the Pak 36 to take Skoda 40mm A17 ammo, but this is just my guess. RIFLES OF HUNGARIAN TROOPS: Hungarians could be armed with German-Hungarian G.98/40 this was a version of the German K98 five round bolt action rifle in 7.92mm. Troops are Arrow Cross UNIFORM OF THE DAY: Troops have been issued the German-pattern steel helmet, greatcoat and cloth puttees wrapped around short boots.
