A new global political divide was formed between the Communist East and Democratic West.The West formed the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) in 1949, and in response the Warsaw Pact was formed by the Soviet Union and its allies, including East Germany, Czechoslovakia, and Poland in 1955. The Soviet Union’s and Warsaw Pact's most powerful forces are poised on the border with West Germany ready to strike at a moment’s notice. Soon the western workers will be free and the dawn of a new socialist age will begin!

T-72B Tank
Warsaw Pact Starter Force: T-72 Battalion (Plastic) (TWPAB01)

In 1985 the T-72B was introduced into service. This was much improved over the previous model the T-72A. It included a new fire control system, incorporating the 9K120 missile system allowing it to fire main gun launched missiles such as the AT-11 Sniper (9M119 Svir). These features combined with an updated 2A46M main gun, a new gun sight, and an improved stabilisation system.

T-55AM-2 Tank
The T-55AM2 is fitted with a modern fire control system with a ballistic calculator, calculating such things as air pressure, air temperature, weight of ammunition, reduced velocity for tube wear, and so on. It is also fitted with a laser rangefinder. Warsaw Pact Starter Force: T-72 Battalion (Plastic) (TWPAB01)
Gaskin AA Vehicle
Warsaw Pact Starter Force: T-72 Battalion (Plastic) (TWPAB01) The SA-9 Gaskin (its NATO designation), called Strela-1M (Arrow‑1M) by the Soviets, is a wheeled, amphibious Surface-to-Air Missile (SAM) system based on the same vehicle as the BRDM-2 reconnaissance vehicle. The missile system has both optical and infra-red guidance, and a target ranging radar.
MI-24 Hind Helicopter
Unlike Western attack helicopters, which play hide and seek with their opponents, the tactics of the Mil Mi-24D Hind, called rather appropriately the Krokodil (Crocodile) by its crews, are more aggressive. These large, armoured assault helicopters close with the enemy, firing all the way with their four-barrelled 12.7mm YakB Gatling guns and UB-32 57mm rocket pods, or AT-6 Spiral, Shturm (Storm) for its Soviet designation, anti-tank guided missiles. The Mi-24 can also transport a small squad of troops, giving commanders great flexibility. Warsaw Pact Starter Force: T-72 Battalion (Plastic) (TWPAB01)
SU-17/SU-22 Fighter-bombers
Warsaw Pact Starter Force: T-72 Battalion (Plastic) (TWPAB01) The Su-17 Fitter is a design improvement over the Su-7 Fitter replacing the Su-7's fixed wing configuration with a variable-sweep wing. This modification improved its range and performance. The Su-17 Fitter is mainly used for ground attack where it can be armed with missiles, rockets, and guns.
