Red Thunder Preview: Soviets in World War III Red Thunder
Soviets in World War III
When Team Yankee kicked off we gave you two sets of intelligence briefings in the rulebook to get everybody started, based on the forces featured in H W Coyle’s novel Team Yankee. Since then we have released Leopard (West German forces), Iron Maiden (British forces) and Volksarmee (East German Forces). Red Thunder is our first book to revisit the forces initially featured in Team Yankee. Red Thunder expands and enhances the forces available in Team Yankee for the Soviet Army.

29 July 1985 - Team Yankee

Pope Calls For Calm
Vatican press release
29 July:
A request on the part of the Holy Father to travel to Moscow to talk to the Soviet premier in an attempt to find a peaceful solution to the current crisis was denied. The Holy Father calls for both sides to remember their responsibility to their people and to the world and again offered his services in any future negotiations.

Meanwhile in Germany Chancellor Helmut Koh released the following press release; “Once more the storm clouds of war hang heavy over Germany. Despite our best efforts, the current crisis looks to be without a peaceful resolution. The Federal Republic of Germany will stand fast with our NATO allies and face any aggression directed against our nation and Europe. We stand as one.”

T-64 Tankovy Company (Plastic)
The T-64 tank was a second generation tank design that first entered service in 1967 to replace the older first generation tanks. It features many innovative design features.

The T-64 has improved armour protection compared to previous Soviet tanks and was also the first Soviet tank to be fitted with an autoloader, which allowed for the reduction of the turret size by removing the need for a loader crewman.

SA-8 Gecko

SA-8 Gecko SAM Platoon
The SA-8 Gecko is a highly effective mobile air-defence missile system that incorporates both its engagement radars and missile launchers in one vehicle. This allows it to detect, track, and engage aircraft independently.

Its SA-8 surface-to-air missiles are further enhanced by a radar guidance system that can guide two missiles simultaneously. It also has a back-up electro-optical guidance system that can be used if the radar is jammed by ECM (Electronic Counter Measures).

Nous Sommes En 1985 Et La Guerre Froide Vient De S’embraser!
La Team Yankee, une équipe de combat lourde composée de chars M1 Abrams et de véhicules blindés de transport de troupes M113 fait face à une invasion soviétique de l’Allemagne de l’Ouest. En infériorité numérique et surclassés en puissance de feu, les hommes du capitaine Sean Bannon devront combattre fermement et faire preuve d’intelligence tactique pour survivre.
Le Lt. Col. Yuri Potecknov se prépare à exécuter sa nouvelle mission de manière scientifique, conformément aux enseignements de l’académie militaire de Frunze, utilisés en Afghanistan. Une victoire aujourd’hui sera un pas de plus vers la révolution prolétaire mondiale.
Avec Team Yankee, le conflit qui couvait pendant la guerre froide explose et s’incarne dans des fi gurines que vous commandez sur un champ de bataille ultra-réaliste.

Team Yankee is available (in French!) from good hobby stores in France.

Visiting the New Zealand National Army Museum
Whilst returning from Panzerschreck 2017 the Studio team stopped off at the New Zealand National Army Museum in Waiouru. We took a short walkaround video of the vehicles on display whilst doing our best to not slip over with the recent dump of snow!

Ilya's Volksarmee

Phase One: The Requisition

When Team Yankee initially came out I knew I wanted to build my own Team Yankee rather than a Soviet force. Over the past year we have released British, West Germans and East Germans and my painting backlog has grown as I've started two new armies. Now with the release of Red Thunder I've completely failed my Last Stand check and decided to go headlong into another new army with a T-64 Battalion...

Red Thunder Live Launch Battle Report
We had a very busy day in the office with our Live Launch, but we still managed to play a Total War Game. Wayne and Phil lined up against Chris and Andrew to see whether the best of NATO could hold off anything the Soviets (and East Germans) could throw at them.
