LAV Platoon (Plastic) (TUBX16) 

LAV Platoon (Plastic)
The Light Armoured Vehicle, or LAV, is one of the newest vehicles in the Marine Corps’ arsenal. Based on the Swiss MOWAG Piranha and built by General Motors in Canada, this vehicle offers the Marines a fast, highly mobile reconnaissance and light fire support vehicle.

Introduced in 1983, the Marine Corps have organised a number of light armoured vehicle battalions equipped with the LAV and assigned to the Marine divisions. Each battalion has four light armoured vehicle companies equipped with LAV-25, LAV-AT and LAV-M vehicles.

M551 Sheridan Tank Platoon
The M551 Sheridan Armored Reconnaissance/Airborne Assault Vehicle, or ARAAV, is fitted with the M81 dual-purpose gun/missile launcher. It can fire conventional HEAT antitank ammunition for shorter range targets, or the MGM51 Shillelagh (pronounced shil-laylee) anti-tank guided missile, which was more effective at longer ranges.

Overpass
Many key battles can take place around or on roads. An overpass provides a unique set of advantages for a commander, providing cover below at the sides and high ground of the bridge from which to fire upon the enemy.

Battlefront Customer Service Update

Battlefront Customer Service Update
During the year we came to realise that we had lost some of the personal side of dealing with our customers as we became overly reliant on technology and systems, that as good as they can be still are never quite the same as having a real person to help you out.

This led us to evaluate our customer service and direct ordering systems so we decided to take a step forward by taking a step back and put real people in the mix again. Starting immediately we will now have dedicated staff, before this was handled by the entire warehouse team, whose sole job it is to handle your orders and your customer service issues.

BMP Vs. BTR
The Soviet Union had a long proud history of mobile infantry, with motor rifle divisions dating back to the Great Patriotic War. The concept of mobile infantry is a force that can quickly be repositioned and can reliably hold on to ground recently captured by advancing armored forces. However, there were many times where mobile infantry worked on the flanks and even ahead of armored forces. This led to the concept of mechanized infantry. Mechanized infantry fight either from armored personnel carriers, such as the BTR-60, or infantry fighting vehicles, such as the BMP series.

One, Two, Three, Four, I Love The Marine Corps!

One, Two, Three, Four, I Love The Marine Corps!
Founded in 1775, The United States Marine Corps has always been the tip of the spear for American Forces. In the 20th century, they would distinguish themselves as some of the toughest warriors in the world. From the Battle of Belleau Wood to the shores of Okinawa, American Marines have always defended freedom and liberty. In the last 70 years they have won two world wars, and there will be no exception here! Whether they come from the sky in their rugged Huey transport helicopters or come from the sea in their massive AAVP7s, the US Marines will give the commies one hell of a fight.

HMMWV King of the Hill Competition 
The release of Stripes includes one of the most iconic vehicles of the US Army, the ubiquitous HMMWV. As the kit is so quick and simple to put together we decided to come up with a fun office challenge, were we each built one and then prepared to duke it out to see who would be “King of the Hill”.

Soviet Artillery

Soviet Artillery
The use of artillery was key to the Soviet army, and this is no different in Team Yankee. Artillery along with reconnaissance units enable Soviet units to get right where they want to be, up close and personal in a knife fight with the enemy, forcing opponents to move, abandoning prepared positions and cover, causing confusion and panic. Artillery then it switches fire and hammers reinforcements and enables success to be exploited.

This is the way of the Soviet Army.

Team Yankee Quick Missions
Quick Missions for Smaller Forces

With the Firestorm Campaign running we have been playing a lot of lunch time games here in the Studio. To get a result in a limited amount of time we have been trying out games with smaller armies. We then thought "let's make some themed missions related to the campaign designed for these smaller armies."
