Team Yankee

Tally ho chaps! This week sees two more all-plastic kits released for the British in Team Yankee. The Scorpion or Scimitar Troop and the Spartan or Striker Troop now join the ranks of the other units available for Iron Maiden. What!

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.

Ripping into the Enemies Defences
In this episode we take a look at the Soviet Hinds of Team Yankee and the amount of them you can bring to the tabletop.

 What is the best tactic when using the Hinds you're asking yourself; what’s going to shoot back? Remember, you can also use defensive fire from your Allied tanks to thin our the enemy flanks before they get a chance to shoot those birds.
