Mech Infantry Platoon (TIS702)

Mech Infantry Platoon (TIS702)
Contains 1 Command Team, four Galil Assault Rifle Teams, three FN MAG Teams with M72 LAW, one M47 Dragon Team, one 52mm Mortar Team, three RPG-7 Teams and five unit cards.

Israeli infantry forces used a wide variety of small arms, from foreign designs like the US M16 assault rifle and Belgian FN MAG light machine-gun, to captured Soviet designs like the AK-47/AKM assault rifles and Negev machine-guns. However, the frontline mechanised brigades were issued with Israeli designed and produced Galil assault rifles, backed up with FN MAG machine-guns. For short range self-defence anti-tank they used the US M72 LAW desposible weapons.

The Israelis also recognised a good weapon system when they saw it and used locally manufactured copies of the Soviet RPG-7 rocket-propelled grenade anti-tank weapon. Each platoon also had a M47 Dragon antitank guided missile team and a light mortar. 

Each Mech Infantry Platoon was organised into three rifle squads of ten men mounted in a M113 ‘Zelda’, with an additional armoured personnel carrier for the platoon headquarters.

Oil War: World War III In The Middle East

Oil War
With Europe ablaze the shadow of war quickly crept across the globe. In the Middle East, Iran and Iraq had been locked in a conflict across their border since 1980, and looked unlikely to stop anytime soon.  Further west, Israel and Syria had come to blows in Lebanon as Israel fought PLO forces operating from inside their northern neighbour. The oil rich region, already rife with conflict and tension, was about to be drawn into World War III as the Soviet Union and US led NATO set about protecting their interests in the black gold that kept the wheels of industry turning.
