First up are the tanks and Infantry Fighting Vehicles. The total maneuver force is 31 x T-62s organized into 3 x companies of 10 tanks, and the Battalion Commander's tank. Also a cross-attached mechanized infantry company in BMP-1s.
|The 3 companies followed by the BMPs, and behind them are the support platoons. Lots of Red Steel!|
|Sprayed PSC Rusian Armor Green, inked, then dry brushed khaki. The tracks are painted rust and the ditch bars are painted also. Pretty simple ,but effectively "Soviet"|
|Saggers painted white more as reminders than anything else.|
Probably worth mentioning here that my desert Arab-Israeli forces will get the same treatment. These guys are being based for TEAM YANKEE in 6mm, DUNN KEMPF, etc. They're all based on Team Yankee/ FOW sized small bases. I plan on doing this same thing for WW2 as well to play FOW.
|Command vehicles were given something "distinctive" about their paintjob. In this case, this company commander's tow cable was painted rusty. Note this is the color of the vallejo mud before I painted it.|
|Note the red dot on the turret.|
|Forward Command post / FO and spotter vehicles.|
|Finally for the infantry commander's track, there is a red stripe around the SAGGER round atop the 73mm gun.|
