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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 a HQ section and three rifle sections.

Chieftain Armoured Troop (TBBX01)

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.

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.
