Storm Anti-tank Platoon
The Storm mounts the powerful long-range AT-6 Spiral anti-tank missile on the MT-LB armoured gun tractor. This combination makes for a low profile anti-tank vehicle that is hard to detect in well-concealed ambush positions. The Storm supplements the AT-5 Spandrel antitank vehicles used by anti-tank units. However, as a superior anti-tank weapon, Storm equipped units are intended to stop enemy armoured breakthroughs.

Apartment Building

Apartment Block
Not every home is a mansion on a country estate. Sometimes home is a multi-storied building with a bunch of popular 20-somethings living upstairs making a lot of noise.

The Apartment Block box comes with a pre-painted building and a set of unpainted Air-conditioning units ready for you to further enhance your buildings, or give your Flames Of War buildings a touch of the 1980s.

Recently highlighted in the new Christopher Nolan film, this was where the British Expeditionary Force was evacuated from France after the Germans invaded that country in the early days of World War II.
