Red Thunder Preview: Soviets in World War III Red Thunder
Soviets in World War III
When Team Yankee kicked off we gave you two sets of intelligence briefings in the rulebook to get everybody started, based on the forces featured in H W Coyle’s novel Team Yankee. Since then we have released Leopard (West German forces), Iron Maiden (British forces) and Volksarmee (East German Forces). Red Thunder is our first book to revisit the forces initially featured in Team Yankee. Red Thunder expands and enhances the forces available in Team Yankee for the Soviet Army.

Chris' T-64 Tank Battalion
Phase One: The Requisition

When Team Yankee initially came out I knew I wanted to build my own Team Yankee rather than a Soviet force. Over the past year we have released British, West Germans and East Germans and my painting backlog has grown as I've started two new armies. Now with the release of Red Thunder I've completely failed my Last Stand check and decided to go headlong into another new army with a T-64 Battalion...

Nous Sommes En 1985 Et La Guerre Froide Vient De S’embraser!
La Team Yankee, une équipe de combat lourde composée de chars M1 Abrams et de véhicules blindés de transport de troupes M113 fait face à une invasion soviétique de l’Allemagne de l’Ouest. En infériorité numérique et surclassés en puissance de feu, les hommes du capitaine Sean Bannon devront combattre fermement et faire preuve d’intelligence tactique pour survivre.
Le Lt. Col. Yuri Potecknov se prépare à exécuter sa nouvelle mission de manière scientifique, conformément aux enseignements de l’académie militaire de Frunze, utilisés en Afghanistan. Une victoire aujourd’hui sera un pas de plus vers la révolution prolétaire mondiale.
Avec Team Yankee, le conflit qui couvait pendant la guerre froide explose et s’incarne dans des fi gurines que vous commandez sur un champ de bataille ultra-réaliste.

Team Yankee is available (in French!) from good hobby stores in France.

A Team Yankee Tournament

Team Yankee France held its first Team Yankee tournament in Paris on Sunday June 18th. The 18th of June is a special date for French people as it’s the date of the famous “Call” from General De Gaulle, officially forming the Resistance in France and abroad in WW2. The events name “Paris fait son (Team) Yankee”, is a play on words in the French language about welcoming our American tourists to the capital, with the theme of the event being “welcoming”, “gathering” and “sharing”.
