SA5150: AAR: Platoon Attack

Walking into it!
So after a pretty disastrous section patrol into AO Buffel, I decided that the Ark Light Battalion wasn't going to take any further chances.  It's clear that small patrols in SA5150 are likely to get absolutely creamed by even average PEF rolls.  So from now on any operations into District 10 were going to be a lot bigger and more capable.

Zvezda: BTR-80 Platoon

Lined up.

Painting vision blocks is like painting eyes on 28mm miniatures.  A real pain in the backside.

Just had to get that off my chest.

Zvezda: T-72 Battle Tanks in 15mm

I was fishing around the web for some Russian tanks for MNU and stumbled across The Plastic Soldier Company who were selling some plastic Zvezda T-72 tanks in 15mm scale.

Would mercenaries have tanks?  Well- historically- a certain South African mercenary company fielded T-72s in its operations in African trouble spots.  So I thought it would be fitting for the Ark Light Battalion to have its own armour.
