2 x Soviet MiG-23 Floggers, and 1 x SU-22 Fitter aircraft.
There is also an SU-25 Frogfoot enroute but according to evil Amazon, he won't show up until December (???)
With this generous allotment of tactical air, my Soviets should have an easier time smashing a hole into NATO's forward positions. Right?
|The SU-22 will be first to be put together.|
|Obviously the MiG-23 was a fighter. So these models will pull double-duty as MiG 27s or SU-24s.|
The price on Amazon was too good to pass up.
In other news, thank you to Ken for his excellent book recommendations. I recently purchased "The Red Effect" and "The Black effect" for Kindle and have been reading "The Red Effect" on the train to and from work of late. A real nail-biter.
If you are into Cold War gaming then these books are a must read. As someone who has read most of the "classic" WWIII books (Red Army, Red Storm Rising, Team Yankee, Chieftains, First Clash, the Suvorov "Inside the Soviet Army" and "History of the Third World War" book to name a few) I can tell you this is the book you've been waiting for. If you don't believe me, go to Amazon, look up "The Black Effect" and read the sample about the set-piece Soviet attack on the British position. That may convince you....
I'm off to try and finish some of the projects on the workbench!
In case you'd like to learn more about these Wings of the Red Star, here are some links for further reading on theMiG-23 Flogger and the SU-17 Fitter.
