In anticipation for this, I’ve started looking around for sci-fi miniatures. A towd battle between a US battalion task force and a Soviet regiment usually takes one to three hours. As a result, turns typically take only 10 minutes or so.

The Robotic Extraction Vehicle, or REV, is a foot-long, 3,pound robot that can tuck a pair of stretchers — and life-support systems — beneath its armored skin. Apparently there was a new version, so out came the credit card They had no choice but to hold out to the bitter end. A good model from Scotia which shows the reactive armour very well.

The Leopard 2 and Abrams are very similar tanks. Shipping from Scotland is surprisingly fuol. It also has the largest set of vehicle and gun data ever published in an individual rule set.

Unfortunately the casting around the road wheels is a bit rough. Again, the first indication the Abrams is there will be when it fires — and well-trained Abrams crews are very accurate. Troop quality was important.

The Abrams features an auxiliary power unit, which allows it to shut off the turbine in some instances, allowing it to conserve fuel. The matter of auxiliary power is another thing not always mentioned in the specs. That’s just not enough to whittle down the Syrians before they close into effective range.
