A bit of the U.S. Armored Team. Still need to build the Cobras A-10s

Mike: Nice looking force. Yesterday, I tried an East German Volks Armee for the first time using the T-55AM2 Panzer Battalion with two T-55 companies backed by a T-72 company. I was lucky with some dice rolls and had the T-55's bounce some long range shots from M1's and my opponent missing Cobra ATGW shots. The T-55's are useful in knocking out US light equipment like M901's, M113's and VADS, however, they are difficult to move in terrain with a 4+ crossing so coordinating an attack while maintaining command with T-55's is tricky. At game's end I had knocked out two M1 platoons with a combination of Hinds, T-72's and BRDM Spandrel shots while the T-55's took out a platoon of VADS and M901's and my Carnations pinned the US infantry. One thing I need to look at is if a pinned infantry unit still counts as in good spirits for formation checks.

Thanks Ron, got to get back to them. Still trying to work up the courage to try a camo pattern. I may just leave them dust coated green.

Well I did my US in the NATO camo colors similar to the West Germans. I noticed that T-64's are next together with BTR-60's. Wonder when some additional US kit will be released.
