About Luftwaffe units in the Africa Corps
Rommel’s Africa Corps included a number of Luftwaffe anti-aircraft units, equipped with 88mm guns used not only in ground-to-air situations but also in engagements with enemy armor such as Matildas’ and M3 Grants. The units’ teamwork was a constant boon for the Africa Corps, whether the enemy was airborne or a land vehicle.
About the Uniform
Both Army and Luftwaffe troops in North Africa received tropical uniform. The Luftwaffe version had a large pocket over the left knee, and other small differences. The sand-colored cloth was lighter than the Army equivalent, but faded rapidly in the sweltering heat, leading to many different shades.
