GPMG yes.

Stinger was discounted as they went down in a helo crash so not used from what I can see. ????

Not quite. The one bloke trained in its use went down in the chopper crash. The Stingers, all six of them, were still available. Lucky first shot by someone just having a crack brought down a Pucara. No other successes.

No biggy, I have an alternative source of a Stinger if needs be. It’s a bit niche anyway.

Oh and apparently they bagged an Argentine Army Puma on Mt Kent as well.

OK then tempting but as you say a bit niche.  :?

Picked up the new SAS minis at Partizan this weekend, and they are even better in the flesh (or rather ..the metal).

Also didn’t realise how large the Armata was until I saw it on Paul’s stand - you get a lot of resin for your money.

The Bergen's are a separate item so can be left off although there are a few extra straps to hide but nothing major.
Thanks.

So I will not mention the MILAN or Carl Gustav for the Night of the Magpies scenario...

The GPMGs will come in handy.

Some more VDV on the horizon.

Jump helmets plus some added kit.

Hmm.  Those drop helmets sort of resemble AVF crew helmets.  One could conceivably use some of them for dismounted BMD crew, should their BMDs get whacked...

I must admit, this presents a thorny dilemna. Berets or jump helmets? Decisions, decisions.
