The Shilka is nice. The T-72 is well... it's really the wrong tank but it's based on a work of fiction and I suppose it has a retro period wrongness to it.

No command vehicles? No  recce vehicles? No BTRs? Or is all of that in phase 2 of the roll out?

No doubt someone better informed will tell me I'm wrong but I seem to recall that pretty much all of the photos I've seen of Abrams and Bradleys for this time period in Europe show them painted in Forest Green.

I remember seeing them panted up like that in 86-87. Of course I was all of 3 or 4 years old so I might be wrong.  lol

I think I might 'tool up' my Syrians with some of those t-72s!

Well... T-72 is out of place (the soviets did not have them in Germany... I know the book says differently, but this has already been settled down, it was an intelligence failure, probably people got confused by the sequential numberings... -72 as to be better than -64)... I was hoping in a M-60, and also T-64 and T-74. Well it is just a first release. By the way you never really answered my questions on your blog, are they plastic or resin/metals?

I would love to get some of M-60s, But if they are basing the start of this line from the book Team Yankee I guess I can see why they went for it.

At least they don't list the M1 as having a 120mm gun...

MERDC camo came in during the mid-late 70s, although 'hard edge' definition of the respective colours, rather than the 'fade-in' spray painting gave, was apparently confined to those units who's commander insisted rocks be painted white and that sort of thing in the casernes.

While after the fact revelations did demonstrate it was the T-64 in service... everyone expected hordes of T-72s... given the inspiration is the novel, then T-72s is what you get.

Bearing in mind BF seem to test the waters with limited releases and a thin supplement (Vietnam, Arab-Israeli), I would imagine more toys will turn up if it's a success.

I'm all for fictional inspiration for ranges, so if a 28mm manufacturer is reading this, a line of figures based on G.I. Blues, Sgt. Bilko and Gomer Pyle USMC, would float my boat.
