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.

BTR-60 Transport Platoon (TSBX14)
Designed to replace older open-topped APCs the BTR-60 was fully enclosed giving it's passengers increased protection from enemy artillery (and grenades). Unlike other contemporary designs where the passengers exited out rear doors the BTR-60 had overhead hatches for passengers to exit and then jump or climb down from. The BTR-60 was also armed with a 14.5mm machine-gun and coaxial 7.62mm machine-gun in a small turret that was operated by a specialist gunner. The driver (who sat on the left) and commander (on the right) were in the hull of the vehicle.
