Let's start with the Gepard (Cheetah in English) a German anti Aircraft tank. As you can see it has lots of radar as well as two rapid firing cannons.
I only ever bought 2 of these as I have never been too excited by them for some reason. Which seems strange to me as they are quirky enough for me to like the look of them.
In the cold war period 2 of them can be attached to a headquarters to act as anti-aircraft support. so they should function well after all no reason not to use the guns on soft skins as well.
Next up two M901 TOW launchers. Tow being an anti Tank Guided weapon. While I can't find them in my TO&E for mid 80's cold war German forces. They were/are used by several different armies so I suspect they could be on the battle field. The one in the picture I think is Japanese but I am not sure. The Germans tended to use Jaguars with Milan or Hott missiles. So I shall do some of those pretty soon.
Clearly the basic carrier is an M113 which has been adapted to an anti-tank role by carrying TOW missiles.
Finally for today here are 6 Mann trucks for Logistics support. In games where the vehicles are so small there is no need to just concentrate on the fighting vehicles. I feel that logistic support is something vital to the battle field if only as targets for the opposition. I would strongly state that they are more than just targets though for without them the battles could not be fought as all sorts of supplies would run short very quickly.
So here are 6 of the beauties all ready to transport things to and from the point of FEBA (Forward Edge of the Battle Area) . I have misplaced the canvas tilt on one but that all adds to the variety of the beasts.
All these figures are about 25 years old to me (possibly older) and originally came from Heroics and Ros a company I believe to be still going. I would encourage anyone wanting to do this scale and era to do an internet search and I am sure you'll find them with little difficulty. I Believe they were at the Salute show this year so I am sure they are still active.
That's it for today, thanks for looking. All the best Clint
