The Arsenal of Democracy
with Ben Polikoff
The Americans have been supplied with the best equipment American industry can provide. Locomotive factories have retooled to produce tanks, and automotive plants have used their industrial expertise to pump out combat aircraft at a record pace. While not an active combatant, the Americans had been watching the developments in the war and theorized what new weapons will best allow their troops, and those of their allies, success against the crack Axis troops they will face. They have been devastatingly effective against the Vichy French troops they have faced so far, but how will they fare against the Desert Fox?

Reluctant Conscripts At Derby Worlds
Most Flames of War players in the UK and some in Europe will be familiar with the Reluctant Conscripts through their long running series of competition events and with the running in recent years of the UK FoW GT and the UK Team Yankee GT. Based in and around Nottingham the Reluctant Conscripts have for several years worked alongside Battlefront to promote the game in the UK and had the pleasure of playing at the Battlefront HQ.

Lessons From The Front: 4th Edition
Last Updated 28 September 2017
A new rules set always results in questions about how the finer points of the game should work so Lessons From The Front is the place to go to find answers to some of the harder questions.

This latest update includes a number of recent questions from the forums as well as the updates from Early and Late War Update.

More Missions Pack

More Missions Update
Gamers have played many thousands of games since Team Yankee and Version 4 of Flames Of War were released, many of them played using the More Missions packs. With so many games being played, we’ve received lots of useful feedback on how the packs can be improved. After pondering the feedback and suggestions, we’ve made some changes and now we need you help in testing them.

We have an update to the More Missions Pack last week with the addition of the Contact mission as a replacement for Hasty Attack in the Battle Plans, and changed the Minefields entries to cover both Mid War and Early/Late War periods.

M4 Sherman Tank Platoon (Plastic)
The M4 Medium Tank—best known by the nickname ‘Sherman’. Over the course of the war there will be numerous variants, changing the engine and suspension, adding more armour and bigger guns, but all with the same tall, solid shape.

T28E1 37mm AAA Platoon (UBX61)

T28E1 37mm AAA Platoon
The The T28E1 CGMC (Combination Gun Motor Carriage) was an experimental design to give the armored divisions mobile anti-aircraft support. It featured a 37mm M1 anti-aircraft gun and two Browning .50-calibre machine guns, on a rotating platform, mounted on an M3 half-track chassis. As well as giving armored units their own self-propelled anti-aircraft artillery (AAA or triple-A), the T28E1 can also provide additional infantry support, mowing down soft ground targets.

Armored Recon Patrol
Each Armored Recon Platoon has two patrols of four vehicles each. The US Army likes its reconnaissance units to pack a punch. The M3A1 carries three machine-guns—one .50-calibre (12.7mm) and two .30 calibre (7.62 mm) mounted on a sliding rail around the top of the passenger compartment. Before it speeds back to report on enemy positions, it is more than capable of mowing down any enemy infantry caught in the open.

P40 Warhawk Fighter Flight (UBX52)

P40 Warhawk Fighter Flight
The Curtiss P-40 is the US Army Air Forces' main fighter-bomber in the North African theatre. It may not be the USAAF’s best fighter—its dogfighting capabilities are outmatched by the Luftwaffe's best fighters—but it is well suited to the ground-attack role, posing a serious threat to both armoured and soft-skinned targets.

Ruined Desert Walls
Solid walls are an infantryman's best friend, providing concealment and cover from enemy fire. The Ruined Desert Walls box includes four Tall Ruined Desert Walls, six Ruined Low Desert Wall, one Ruined Tall Gate and one Ruined Well.
