Abbott Field Battery (TBBX06) Abbot Field Battery (TBBX06)
contains four FV433 Abbot self-propelled guns, six resin tank commander figures, one decal sheet & one Unit Card. 

The FV433 Abbot self-propelled gun mounts a 105mm gun on a modified FV432 armoured personnel carrier chassis. Although its calibre is relatively small for a modern artillery piece, the 105mm gun fires a high-capacity shell that gives it an excellent performance.

With its usual professionalism, the British Army has prepared for war. Now, as the Soviet Army floods across the border into West Germany, it is ready and waiting. Scorpion and Scimitar light tanks skirmish with the Soviet forward detachments as the Chieftain armoured regiments wait to strike back. The infantry hold the towns and woods, forcing the enemy into killing zones. If anything breaks through, the airmobile troops in their Lynx helicopters will hold them. The British Army is ready!

Abbott Field Battery (TBBX06)
The Abbot provides close support for the armoured brigades, where its presence is much appreciated. The guns are very effective against infantry and light armour, as well as providing smoke screens to mask the defenders from enemy fire while repositioning.
