2S1 Carnation Battery (TSBX07)

Includes three resin and metal 2S1 Gvozdika ('Carnation') 122mm Self-propelled Howitzers and one Unit Card.

The 2S1 Carnation is a Soviet 122-mm self-propelled 2A18 howitzer. The 2S1 is fully amphibious with very little preparation, and once afloat is propelled by its tracks. A variety of wider tracks are also available to allow the 2S1 to operate in snow or swamp conditions. The interior is separated into a driver's compartment on the left, an engine compartment on the right and a fighting compartment to the rear.

The Soviet Union's most powerful forces are stationed in East Germany and Czechoslovakia, poised on the boarder with West Germany ready to strike at a moment's notice. They are equipped with the very best Soviet industry has to offer, from sophisticated missile firing T-64 tanks and powerful T-72 tanks to versatile BMP infantry fighting vehicles, as well as plentiful BTR-60 armoured personnel carriers. Supported by elite Afgansty Air Assault troops, powerful self-propelled artillery, and effective and numerous anti-tank and anti-aircraft weapons, there will be little that the corrupt capitalist armies of NATO can do to stop them.

Assembling the 2S1 Carnation 122mm SP Howitzer
Tip: When referring to left or right-hand side in regards to a Team Yankee miniature, the orientation is determined as if looking at the vehicle from the rear.
Step 1. Begin assembly by adding the tracks. there are L/R indicators on the back of each track to ensure they are put on the correct way.  Below: Left and Right tracks attached.

Adding Rare Earth Magnets
Alternatively, you may choose to glue rare earth magnets into the recess in the hull and to the bottom of the turret. Magnets are a quick and secure way of fixing your turrets to the hulls, rather than just relying on gravity.

Rare Earth Magnets (XX105) are available through the online store here...
