Phil Yates’s Red Banner Tank Division Tank Battalion

After a year of hard work on Team Yankee, I’m stoked to finally be able to get the models on the table and play some games. Back in the late 1980s I fielded a Soviet Motor Rifle Regiment against my friend’s Belgian armoured brigade with a modicum of success, so the chance to revisit the period brings back good memories and the anticipation of making a lot more.

I chose the Soviet force because I’ve always loved their kit. The T-72 and BMP are just awesome, the Shilka is classic, and who can go past the Mi-24 Hind! The Soviet doctrine is so theoretically elegant – and utterly cold-blooded – that I have to try it out on the table top.

My force is based around lots of tanks with a smattering of everything else to get the cool kit on the table. As it expands, it will gain lots more tanks and some artillery, and the option of expanding the motor rifle company to give me more infantry punch. Phil at Team Yankee Armageddon
