The IPM1 or M1 Abrams tank

The M1 Abrams’ NATO-standard 105mm gun fires the latest long-rod, fin-stabilised ammunition, giving it incredible penetrating power. This time-tested gun combines remarkably compact rounds for a high rate of fire, with a deadly effect against almost any type of target. Its advanced stabiliser, laser rangefinder, and thermal imager allow it to hit targets at any range while moving rapidly across any terrain, whether by day or by night.

The T-64 tank

The T-64 is armed with the excellent smooth bore 125mm 2A46 gun, which fires high-explosive, high-explosive fragmentation, and armour-piercing fin-stabilised discarding-sabot rounds. By the 1980s, the Soviet forces in East Germany had replaced most of their tanks with the T-64 tank. The T-64 can fire Kobra (NATO designation AT-8 Songster)
anti-tank guided missiles in the same manner as ordinary rounds. The missiles have a maximum range of 4000 metres and a hit probability of about 80%. The fully stabilised gun and sight system allowed the missiles to be fired on the move, unlike many other guided missiles. Not all T-64 tanks are armed with the Kobra missile, and some tanks were manufactured without the missile guidance system.

Waynes Team Yankee Soviets

Wayne's T-72 Tank Battalion
The original Team Yankee book included the T-72 tank (rather than the T-64 included in Hammerfall) but you can see his progress building his army as well as what supports he chose to add with the release of Red Thunder.

Aaron's M1 Abrams Tank Company
Aaron decided to stick with the MERDC scheme as well, but after painting enough US vehicles in the Winter Verdant variant of the MERDC camouflage pattern to last a lifetime, he chose to paint his force in the Summer Verdant scheme, for a bit of variety.

Team Yankee More Missions

Quick Missions for Team Yankee
With the Firestorm Campaign running we have been playing a lot of lunch time games here in the Studio. To get a result in a limited amount of time we have been trying out games with smaller armies. We then thought "let's make some themed missions related to the campaign designed for these smaller armies."

These would be a great place to move to if you running the forces from the Hammerfall box.
