Team Yankee

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.

Milan Group (TBR706) Milan Group (TBR706)

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.

British Markings
Vehicle markings of the BAOR

The British have a more complex marking and unit numbering system than other NATO countries, and they have a variety of decal sheets.

Casey has prepared a handy guide to help you correctly place all of your vehicle markings.

Mechanics Workshop (BB209) Mechanics Workshop (BB209)

You can’t have cars without car maintenance. This automotive workshop or garage is a great addition to a modern battlefield. It can stand alone, or it can accompany a Petrol Station or Factory.

Need to change the oil and spark plugs in your tank? Better capture the Mechanics Workshop before the enemy does!

WWPD: Why We Fight Episode 7
Interview with Peter Simunovich

In this episode the guys talk to Battlefront chairman Peter Simunovich. Being the boss means Pete is free to talk about a lot of new information without getting into trouble, and he really spilled a LOT of beans about the future of Flames Of War and Team Yankee, as well as giving some insight behind the scenes of the gaming industry.

The whole episode is worth listening to, but if you’d like to skip straight to the action, Act 2 with Pete’s interview starts at 31 minutes into the episode.

Beasts of War
Charlie's Chieftains Unboxing

If you’re can’t decide whether to pick up the Charlie’s Chieftains Armoured Squadron box set, Beasts of War have a great unboxing video to help convince you. Justin and John take a good detailed look at the box contents, including an interesting discussion of the history of British Army equipment in the 1980s.

Jonathan’s Armoured Squadron
Part 3 – Painting the Army

One of the new Iron Maiden staff armies we saw on our launch weekend was customer service manager Jonathan Peace’s Armoured Squadron – his first 15mm army, which he has been trying to complete as quickly as possible. Last week he showed us how he assembled the models. This week he updates us on his painting progress.

Victor Paints the Berlin Brigade Victor Paints the Berlin Brigade

 Victor Pesch found himself intrigued by the Berlin Brigade’s elaborate rectangular camouflage pattern (he’s not alone in that!). He came up with a plan for making re-usable masks to make it easier to paint the coloured sections.
