Stripes (FW912) 

Stripes - US Forces in World War III
Stripes is our second book to expand on the forces that came with original Team Yankee rulebook. It covers the US forces in Germany in August 1985, more specifically the 1st Armored Division, 82nd Airborne Division, and the 2nd Marine Division. Can we have an Ooh Rah!

Stripes substantially expands on the forces available to the US Team Yankee player, as well as adding a bunch extra options for those who haven’t been tempted by the Americans yet.

From the mighty Abrams and Patton tanks to the HMMVW and LAV, this book has it all!

Stripes Book Spotlight... 

Abrams Tank Platoon (Plastic)
The M1 Abrams was a new tank built from the ashes of a failed project, built with cost in mind, but not neglecting technology. It utilised the latest armour, targeting, night vision, and engine technologies. The IPM1, produced in 1984 with a new turret, substantially increased the armour performance of the Abrams further.

M48 Chaparral SAM Platoon (TUBX09)

M48 Chaparral SAM Platoon
The M48 Chaparral is a tried and tested surface- to-air missile (SAM) weapons system that first entered service with the US Army in 1969. This SAM system fires MIM-72G Chaparral missiles (based on the AIM-9 Sidewinder air to-air missile) which use an infra-red seeker to lock on to the hot exhaust of an aircraft.

M247 Sergeant York AA Platoon
The M247 Sergeant York came out of the DIVAD (DIVision Air Defense) programme to find a replacement for the M163 VADS and went into production in 1981

The M247 is fitted with fully-stabilized twin 40mm Bofors anti-aircraft guns and with a search and track radar designed to track aircraft out to a range of 40km. The Sergeant York is also fitted with a laser-rangefinder and digital fire control system. This was all housed in a new turret mounted on the hull of a M48A5 Patton medium tank.

AV-8 Harrier Attack Flight (TUBX12)

AV-8 Harrier Attack Flight
The US Marine Corps adopted the British Hawker-Siddley Harrier, the famed ‘Jump Jet’, in 1971. Designated AV-8, the Harrier is a high performance jet aircraft that is uniquely capable of vertical and short take-off and landing (VSTOL). It does this by swivelling its exhaust nozzles down to allow it to take off vertically.

Battlefront Customer Service Update
During the year we came to realise that we had lost some of the personal side of dealing with our customers as we became overly reliant on technology and systems, that as good as they can be still are never quite the same as having a real person to help you out.

This led us to evaluate our customer service and direct ordering systems so we decided to take a step forward by taking a step back and put real people in the mix again. Starting immediately we will now have dedicated staff, before this was handled by the entire warehouse team, whose sole job it is to handle your orders and your customer service issues.
