I was also thinking it could serve as a Chinese Fighter-Bomber for some Sino-Soviet fighting in west Asia.
|Fitter with Decals! The squadron insignia is actually from a Battlefront Vietnam M113 kit but I thought it looked like an appropriate Air-To-Ground squadron marker.|
|Still have to apply some PVA to the decals then spray the matte coat on.|
Okay and now onto the ground stuff. Next up is a pair of M163 Vulcans from Battlefront for "Team Yankee." Since these guys would have been cross-attached from the SHORAD Battalion, I felt it appropriate to put them in a different paint scheme. Although I'm not really happy with the patterns, these guys did turn out OK in NATO 3 Color scheme.
Next time the Blue-Tac will be smaller to allow for more shapes. These guys are all ready for Duck-Hunting at Ken's tomorrow! Let's hope they bag a Frogfoot! (or else my M1s are toast!!!)
And last but certainly not least, the unsung heroes of the Anti Tank company. These M901 ITOWs (Improve TOW Vehicles) are the anti tank meat of my Infantry Battlegroup. A section of them with Anti Tank 21 I believe. Anyways they are painted in MERDC to match the rest of the team.
And the class photo. 2 Tank platoons, 2 Mech platoons, a howitzer platoon, FIST track, M163 VADS ADA, M901 ITOWs, Command Infantry team (if I go the infantry route) all weighing in at an impressive 88 points for Team Yankee and all ready for their big match tomorrow!
|Yes the second tank platoon is in NATO green and that's it but I didn't have time to complete the MERDC!|
