Wayne’s West Germans: Part Two
Here we are some seven months since the Leopard launch weekend and I have my first 100 points of West Germans completed. A lot has happened since then, we’ve released Iron Maiden and Volksarmee, but I have managed to stay relatively on target despite these distractions.

SA-9 Gaskin SAM Platoon (TSBX12)

SA-9 Gaskin SAM Platoon (TSBX12)
The SA-9 Gaskin (its NATO designation), called Strela-1M (Arrow‑1M) by the Soviets, is a wheeled, amphibious Surface-to-Air Missile (SAM) system based on the same vehicle as the BRDM-2 reconnaissance vehicle. The missile system has both optical and infra-red guidance, and a target ranging radar. Each vehicle carries four missiles in a ready-to-fire configuration and the crew would then manually load additional missiles once fired. Designed to protect against short-range threats it would often be deployed in conjunction with batteries of ZSU-23-4 self-propelled gun systems making a deadly combination.

East German Mot-Schützen Platoon (TEG702)
The Russian BMP-1 is the successor to Germany's ground-breaking Hanomag halftrack of the Second World War. It carries the 
Schützen into battle in relative safety, then gives them fire support as they launch their attack.

Artillery and aircraft are not precision weapons. Their shells and bombs blanket a wide area, possibly wiping out dozens of the enemy at a time. Artillery and Salvo Templates make it easy to work out who is hit and who isn’t.

Team Yankee East German Token Set (TTK05)
Even though they are toy soldiers, your troops react to heavy fire like real soldiers. Sometimes they get pinned down or bail out of their tanks. They can dig foxholes for protection or go to ground, hiding from the enemy. Tokens help you keep track of the state of your troops.

Schlamperei Ivan, sloppy’, muttered Oberleutnant Fritz Fischer as he watched his russische Kameraden deploy from column to line. Two of the Russian tanks had been late in executing their turns and were racing to catch up their assigned positions, trailing clouds of diesel fumes. There was no way his men would ever be that sloppy.

The Panzers of World War III The Panzers of World War III
East German Armour in Team Yankee
The East German Volksarmee, or Peoples’ Army, has the reputation of being the most well-trained of all the Warsaw Pact armies. It has a high proportion of professional soldiers and is well-equipped. In Team Yankee it shares many similarities with the Soviet army but Volksarmee also introduces a number of new models that bring a unique flavour to the East German army.

T-55AM2 Panzer Kompanie (TEBX01)

T-55AM2 Panzer Kompanie (TEBX01)
Of the 2100 T-55 tanks supplied to NVA by the Soviet Union, Czechoslovakia, and Poland, nearly 300 were upgraded to the T-55AM2 standard. The T-55AM2 was fitted with a modern fire control system with a ballistic calculator, calculating such things as air pressure, air temperature, the weight of ammunition, reduced velocity for tube wear, and so on. It was also fitted with a laser rangefinder.

Two Sides of the Iron Curtain
German Forces in World War III
After its defeat in the Second World War, Germany was occupied by the victorious Allied Powers. The Soviet Union controlled the part to the east, while Britain, France and the United States occupied the part to the west and the responsibility for the security of Germany was left to the four occupying powers. The relationship between the democratic West (the United States, Britain, and France) and the communist East (the Soviet Union) soon broke down and an Iron Curtain was drawn across central Europe. Germany was divided in two.

BRDM-2 Recon Platoon (TSBX10)
The Soviet-made BRDM-2 (Boyevaya Razvedyvatelnaya Dozornaya Mashina 2, or Combat Reconnaissance Patrol Vehicle 2) is a four-wheel amphibious reconnaissance vehicle ideally suited for East German Aufklärungs troops. The vehicle has been designed to cope with a range of terrain. In addition to being amphibious, it also has two pairs of belly wheels that can be lowered by the driver for trench crossing and has a centralised tire pressure system that is used to adjust tire pressures to suit the ground conditions.

BRDM-2 Recon Platoon (TSBX10)...
BRDM-2 Recon Platoon (TSBX10)
Spandrel AT Platoon (TSBX11)
The 9P148 Konkurs (Contest, or Spandrel as its missile is designated by NATO) is a light mobile armoured vehicle mounting five excellent wire-guided 9M113 Konkurs (AT-5 Spandrel) anti-tank missiles. The 9P148 vehicle is based on the same vehicle used in the reconnaissance role as the BRDM-2. It has good cross-country and road speed allowing it to get into good positions from which to launch its missiles. The roof mounted launch system meant that the vehicle could hide its bulk, only exposing the launcher and gunner’s sight on the top of the roof to the enemy making it difficult to kill or suppress should the enemy even see the weapon firing.

Spandrel AT Platoon (TSBX11)...
Mot-Schützen Kompanie (TEBX02)
The Russian BMP-1 is the successor to Germany's ground-breaking Hanomag halftrack of the Second World War. It carries the 
Schützen into battle in relative safety, then gives them fire support as they launch their attack.

Mounting an AT-3 Sagger missile, the BMP-1 also protects the infantry from enemy panzers. The company’s riflemen are armed with the classic AKM assault rifle, or MPi KM (Maschinenpistole Kalashnikow Modernisiert) submachine-gun as the East Germans called them. Each squad is also equipped with an RPK squad automatic weapon, disposable RPG-18 anti-tank rockets, and the powerful RPG-7 anti-tank rocket launcher.

Rob's West Germans
Rob is one of our resident rivet counters in the office, loving all things Bundeswehr. When developing Leopard he brought in a wealth of information for the team to read and review. He also brought in a rather impressive 1/6 scale remote control Leopard II that patrolled the office rolling over anything that got in its way.

Scorpion or Scimitar Troop (TBBX03)

Scorpion or Scimitar Troop (TBBX03)
The British Army Of the Rhine had three tracked reconnaissance regiments. The recce troops of the first two were equipped entirely with Scimitar reconnaissance vehicles, while the recce troops of the third mixed Scimitars and Scorpions together.

Spartan or Striker Troop (TBBX04)
The FV103 Spartan armoured personnel carriers based on the same Scorpion chassis as the rest of the squadron. These give them the speed and protection to get into position ahead of the enemy in time to prepare a hot reception.

Chieftain Armoured Troop (TBBX01)

Chieftain Armoured Troop (TBBX01)
The British fought the Second World War in fast light tanks, outgunned by their opponents. But times have changed! Now, the Chieftain tank has the thickest armour and biggest gun of any tank in NATO.

M109 Field Battery (TBBX08)
The divisional artillery has replaced the Abbot with the American M109, with its 155mm gun. This powerful weapon is called upon when some serious firepower is needed.

Tracked Rapier SAM Section (TBBX07)
Tracked Rapier is a self-propelled version of the excellent Rapier surface-to-air missile (SAM) mounted on the chassis of a modified American M548 tracked carrier. Typical of British missiles, the Rapier is not a homing missile, instead the commander tracks the target using a helmet-mounted sight, and the launcher sends signals to the missile to steer it on to the target.

Lynx HELARM Flight (TBBX05)
The TOW Lynx mounts the US Improved TOW anti-tank missile for the HELARM (Helicopter, Armed) operations. The Lynx is fast and aerobatic, making it ideal for the anti-tank role as it can fly below tree-top level to sneak into position, then pop up using its roof-mounted sights to acquire targets and destroy them with its missiles.

Lynx HELARM Flight (TBBX05)...

Lynx HELARM Flight (TBBX05)
Abbot Field Battery (TBBX06) Abbot Field Battery (TBBX06)
The FV433 Abbot self-propelled gun mounts a 105mm gun on a modified FV432 armoured personnel carrier chassis. Although its calibre is relatively small for a modern artillery piece, the 105mm gun fires a high-capacity shell that gives it an excellent performance.

The Abbot provides close support for the armoured brigades, where its presence is much appreciated. The guns are very effective against infantry and light armour, as well as providing smoke screens to mask the defenders from enemy fire while repositioning.

Hiding in Plain Sight
Modelling Camouflage Netting
Miniature designer Evan Allen has been conducting exhaustive research for his new Iron Maiden army. One thing he found for the CVR(T) (Combat Vehicle Reconnaissance (Tracked)) family of vehicles was the extensive use of camouflage netting and local foliage – important for lightly armed and armoured vehicles whose mission (and survival) relies on being inconspicuous.

Mechanised Company (TBBX10)
The Mechanised Company comprises a Company HQ and two Mechanised Platoons. Each platoon has an impressive variety of firepower at its disposal, with the ‘Gimpy’ (GPMG or General Purpose Machine-gun) and L1A1 SLRs (Self-Loading Rifles), the ‘Charlie G’ (84mm Carl Gustav recoilless gun) and one-shot 66mm light anti-tank weapons for anti-tank work, and a 2” light mortar team, whose main role is to use smoke to blind enemy machine-guns.

The Milan missile is a modern man-portable, light anti-tank missile. Its small size makes the missile team easy to dig in and conceal, yet it can penetrate most tanks. The British have access to a plentiful supply of Milan systems, making them fearsome in defence.
