Dropping the Frogfoots, downgrading the Hinds, removing one T-80, keeping the infantry allows us to add an artillery component to our list for an additional small outlay brings our spend to $270.50.
Adding the artillery allows us to have a template to drop on infantry teams and light vehicles plus has AT21 allowing them to act as a stop gap anti-tank unit if we get desperate. Adding in this unit brings the number of units in the formation to six.
This starter set is great value and a couple of these plus maybe a couple of additional boxes will get you well on your way to playing Soviets!
For those existing players who already have Soviet armies, this is still a great addition to upgrade your armies. If you just need T-80s and BMP-3s and maybe an additional BRDM family unit then I recommend getting one of these starter boxes plus an additional T-80 or BMP-3 box.
