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.

Chieftain Armoured Troop (TBBX01)
The British fought the Second World War in fast light tanks, outgunned by their opponents. But times have changed! Now, the Chieftain tank has the thickest armour and biggest gun of any tank in NATO.

M109 Field Battery (TBBX08)

M109 Field Battery (TBBX08)
The divisional artillery has replaced the Abbot with the American M109, with its 155mm gun. This powerful weapon is called upon when some serious firepower is needed.

Harrier Close Air Support Flight (TBBX09)
The Hawker-Siddley Harrier, the famed ‘Jump Jet’ could swivel its exhaust nozzles down to allow it to take off vertically. The Hawker-Siddley Harrier, the famed ‘Jump Jet’ could swivel its exhaust nozzles down to allow it to take off vertically.

Tracked Rapier SAM Section (TBBX07)

Tracked Rapier SAM Section (TBBX07)
Tracked Rapier is a self-propelled version of the excellent Rapier surface-to-air missile (SAM) mounted on the chassis of a modified American M548 tracked carrier. Typical of British missiles, the Rapier is not a homing missile, instead the commander tracks the target using a helmet-mounted sight, and the launcher sends signals to the missile to steer it on to the target.

Tracked Rapier SAM Section (TBBX07)...

Mechanised Platoon (TBR702)
As the FV432 armoured personnel carrier was designed to carry a full section of infantry, the mechanised platoon mirrors the organisation of the standard rifle platoon with an HQ section and three rifle sections.

Mechanised Platoon (TBR702)...

Lynx HELARM Flight (TBBX05) Lynx HELARM Flight (TBBX05)
The TOW Lynx mounts the US Improved TOW anti-tank missile for the HELARM (Helicopter, Armed) operations. The Lynx is fast and aerobatic, making it ideal for the anti-tank role as it can fly below tree-top level to sneak into position, then pop up using its roof-mounted sights to acquire targets and destroy them with its missiles.

Lynx HELARM Flight (TBBX05)...

Abbot Field Battery (TBBX06)
The FV433 Abbot self-propelled gun mounts a 105mm gun on a modified FV432 armoured personnel carrier chassis. Although its calibre is relatively small for a modern artillery piece, the 105mm gun fires a high-capacity shell that gives it an excellent performance.

The Abbot provides close support for the armoured brigades, where its presence is much appreciated. The guns are very effective against infantry and light armour, as well as providing smoke screens to mask the defenders from enemy fire while repositioning.

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.

Hiding in Plain Sight: Modelling Camouflage Netting

Hiding in Plain Sight
Modelling Camouflage Netting
Miniature designer Evan Allen has been conducting exhaustive research for his new Iron Maiden army. One thing he found for the CVR(T) (Combat Vehicle Reconnaissance (Tracked)) family of vehicles was the extensive use of camouflage netting and local foliage – important for lightly armed and armoured vehicles whose mission (and survival) relies on being inconspicuous.

Mechanised Company (TBBX10) Mechanised Company (TBBX10)
The Mechanised Company comprises a Company HQ and two Mechanised Platoons. Each platoon has an impressive variety of firepower at its disposal, with the ‘Gimpy’ (GPMG or General Purpose Machine-gun) and L1A1 SLRs (Self-Loading Rifles), the ‘Charlie G’ (84mm Carl Gustav recoilless gun) and one-shot 66mm light anti-tank weapons for anti-tank work, and a 2” light mortar team, whose main role is to use smoke to blind enemy machine-guns.

Mechanised Company (TBBX10)...

Milan Group (TBR706)
The Milan missile is a modern man-portable, light anti-tank missile. Its small size makes the missile team easy to dig in and conceal, yet it can penetrate most tanks. The British have access to a plentiful supply of Milan systems, making them fearsome in defence.

British Markings British Markings
Vehicle markings of the BAOR
The British have a more complex marking and unit numbering system than other NATO countries, and they have a variety of decal sheets.

Casey has prepared a handy guide to help you correctly place all of your vehicle markings.

FV432 or Swingfire Platoon (TBBX02)
The FV432 armoured personnel carrier is the British equivalent of the ubiquitous American M113.The design is very conventional, being made of welded steel plates and capable of carrying a section of ten infantry.

This box gives you five plastic FV432 APCs to use as ‘battle taxis’, delivering your infantry to the battlefield protected from enemy fire. Or you can assemble them as Mortar carriers or Swingfire missile vehicles.

Iron Maiden – British Army in World War III

Iron Maiden is out now!
Last weekend we celebrated the launch of Iron Maiden – British Army in World War III with a weekend-long live blog.

Iron Maiden (FW907)
British Army in World War III
Iron Maiden, British Army in World War III is a 48-page hard-back book that tells the story of Major Charles Leslie’s Squadron of Chieftain tanks and the stubborn fighting withdrawal they fought against a relentless Soviet invasion.

Iron Maiden provides players with Army lists for the “Death or Glory Boys’” Chieftain Armoured Squadron, the Irish Guards’ Mechanised Company, the Gordon Highlanders’ Airmobile Company, and the Queen’s Dragoon Guards’ Medium Recce Squadron, as well as history of the British Army of the Rhine, painting guides and scenarios.

Automobile Garages (BB211)
The Battlefield in a Box range of tabletop-ready scenery is a quick and easy way to create a wargaming table straight out of the box. The Automobile Garages are a great addition to any modern battlefield. They can stand alone, or accompany a Petrol Station, a Factory or Mechanics Workshop. And for those who have collected Battlefield in a Box houses for WWII tables, garages are a great way of making them look more modern – as automobiles became more popular, adding garages to homes became much more common.

Although it is designed for Team Yankee games, it could just as easily feature on your World War II battlefield.

West Germans in World War III 
Leopard – West Germans in World War III is the first supplement for Team Yankee, the World War III miniatures game. It introduces the forces of West Germany to the turbulent battlefields of World War III in 1985. Leopard and the West German range of Team Yankee models include everything you need to hold back the Red Menace.

Inside you will find background on the West German Bundeswehr (armed forces) and Heer (army) and their role in the initial stages of World War III. You will also find the stories of Panzer Division 1 and Kampfgruppe Müller as they fight to defend their country form the invading communist forces.

Müller’s leading platoon rounded the wood and were faced with a battalion of tanks and a company of infantry parked in several long tree lined fields. The German tanks were quickly spotted, which sent the Soviets into a mad scramble to mount their vehicles. The Leopards began to pick off the stationary T-72s as they desperately tried to swing their guns into action.

The West German army deal for Leopard is Kampfgruppe Müller, which includes five plastic Leopard 2 tanks and two plastic BO-105P Helicopters.

Look to the skies! Soviet air assault troops are coming to Team Yankee. The desantniki of the Soviet VDV airborne forces in the Afgantsy Air Assault Battalion are tough veterans of the Soviet-Afghan War. They have learned their trade in bitter fighting against the mujahideen rebels in the mountains of the Hindu Kush. Now back in Europe, they are ready to show the NATO troops the awesome power of a Soviet air assault.

Harold Coyle's Novel of World War III
You probably already know Team Yankee was inspired by a signed copy of the novel Team Yankee sent to Battlefront by its author, Harold Coyle, an avid wargamer. To coincide with the release of the game, Harold has revised the novel and is republishing it. This excerpt gives you a taste of the story and a feel for the style of both the novel and the game.
