Basij Infantry Platoon (TIR703)

Basij Infantry Platoon (TIR703)
Includes one Command Team, nine AKM assault rifle teams, four RPG-7 anti-tank teams, nine medium four-hole bases, one small three-hole base and four small two-hole bases.

The Basij were often lightly armed with a mix of weapons drawn from whatever stocks were available. The lucky units were armed with AKM assault rifles either purchased from foriegn sources or captured from the Iraqis. Some units were supplied by the Army with G3 battle rifles. Many had old bolt-action rifles from the 1940s and 50s. Particularly well-armed units had PKM machine-guns mixed in their assualt rifles. Soviet RPG-7 anti-tank weapons provided heavy firepower against tanks, dug-in infantry, and bunkers.

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.
