Soviet Reinforcements for Team Yankee

This time just a short post about my recent additions to my Team Yankee Red Army.

First we have a platoon of Spandrel Anti-Tank Vehicles.

They are based on the BRDM-2 chassis and fitted with 5 launchers for the AT-5 Spandrel ATGM. Although they are lightly armoured, with 3 shots of AT 21 FP 3+ these will provide some heavy punch versus the M1s and Leo 2s out there. For only 3 points that's a no-brainer.

Second I added 4 of the delightful SA-9 Gaskin AA vehicles.

Again a BRDM-2 variant, but fitted with SAM-missiles on a rotating turret including onboard radar. With 2 shots and a firepower of only 5+ they are not they most fearsome AA asset, but they are cheap and a welcome partner for my Shilkas.

These Battlefront resin models are pretty neat and were easy to assemble.Just glue on the metal wheels and weaponry, finished. But the real-life costs are quite expensive, a plastic kit might have been better and will hopefully be produced by PSC soon.

Further Soviets will be coming soon, including VDV infantry, more BMPs, Storms, Geckos and 4 more Hinds.
