includes four resin BRDM-2 Armoured Reconnaissance vehicles, one Decal sheet and three Unit cards.

The Soviet made BRDM-2 (Boyevaya Razvedyvatelnaya Dozornaya Mashina 2, or Combat Reconnaissance Patrol Vehicle 2) is a four wheel amphibious reconnaissance vehicle ideally suited for East German Aufklärungs troops. The vehicle has been designed to cope with a range of terrain. In addition to being amphibious, it also has two pairs of belly wheels that can be lowered by the driver for trench crossing and has a centralised tire pressure system that is used to adjust tire pressures to suit the ground conditions.

The East German Volksarmee, or Peoples’ Army, has the reputation of being the most well-trained of all the Warsaw Pact armies. It has a high proportion of professional soldiers and is well-equipped. 9. Panzerdivision, or 9th Tank Division, in particular, is equipped with T-72M tanks and BMP-1 and BMP-2 infantry fighting vehicles.

BRDM-2 Recon Platoon (TSBX10) The BRDM-2 is armed with a turret mounted 14.5mm machine-gun and coaxial 7.62mm machine-gun. This means it is capable of defending itself against other reconnaissance troops and infantry but won't be tempted to go hunting for a fight. The vehicle armour, which is composed of welded steel, protects it fully against small arms fire and small shell fragments; but doesn't protect it against big artillery fragments or heavy machine-gun fire.

Thanks to the Spearhead rule a BRDM-2 Aufklärungs Zug can be used to scout ahead and expand the deployment area, giving an East German force a chance to push across the table and reduce the amount of time spent sitting in front of the enemy tanks.

Adding Rare Earth Magnets
Alternatively, you may choose to glue rare earth magnets into the recess in the hull and to the bottom of the turret. Magnets are a quick and secure way of fixing your turrets to the hulls, rather than just relying on gravity.

Rare Earth Magnets (XX105) are available through the online store here...
