Panzergrenadier Zug (TGR702) Panzergrenadier Zug (TGR702)

The modern Panzergrenadier Zug (Armoured Infantry Platoon) is a small but well-trained, -motivated, and -equipped, unit, armed with MG3 machine-guns, G3 assault rifles, as well as the Panzerfaust 44 anti-tank rocket.

Fliegerfaust Gruppe (TGR708)

The FIM-43 Redeye was a man-portable surface-to-air missile system, which used infrared track its target - hence its name. In West German service it was known as the Fliegerfaust 1. The Fliegerfaust Gruppe includes six Redeye teams, to help make the Soviet air units very nervous.

Fast Food Restaurant (BB207)

One or two strategically placed modern buildings can instantly bring your existing battlefield into the 1980s for World War III in Team Yankee. This fast food restaurant can represent a McDonald’s, Pizza Hut or Kentucky Fried Chicken (Team Yankee is set in a time before ‘fried’ became a scary word and they re-branded as KFC) or you could invent your own fast-food chain.

Iron Horses
Fielding a Marine Tank Company

List-building for Marine tanks is a very different challenge in the Pacific War and Late War periods. While the Sherman is far from exceptional in Late War, it is an absolute beast (albeit a very expensive one) in the Pacific Theatre. Mitchell Kemmis shares his list-building and tactical advice for playing a Marine Tank Company from Gung-Ho at both the Pacific War and Late War points levels.
