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!

Iron Maiden - British Army in World War III
Mechanised Platoon (TBR702)

The rifle sections break down into a machine-gun group armed with a ‘Gimpy’ (GPMG or General Purpose Machine-gun) and a number of L1A1 SLRs (Self-Loading Rifles) and a rifle group equipped with a ‘Charlie G’ (84mm Carl Gustav recoilless gun) for anti-tank work and more SLRs.

A tripod-mounted or support fire (SF) version of the GPMG is attached to platoons needing extra firepower or well sited for long-range harassing fire. Sections of two Milan anti-tank guided missiles are usually attached to platoons for additional anti-tank capability.
