Plastic Soldier Company Bring New Tanks To The Cold War

June 24, 2017 by dracs

Plastic Soldier Company have been working on some goodies for Cold War games, including two new tanks and the reveal of Battlegroup Northag.

Tanks A Lot

First to be revealed is the T55, a 20mm tank that Plastic Soldier have just put up for pre-order.

The T55 was produced shortly after the end of WWII and swiftly formed the Soviet forces main battle tank, although it never faced off against NATO forces directly.

For their next tank, Plastic Soldier are going to 15mm scale to produce the Leopard 1.

The Leopard 1 was designed in West Germany with fire-power and cross-country performance in mind. It became a staple of the European forces of the time, and vehicles derived from it are still in use in modern day.

Heat Up The Cold War

Perhaps most exciting of all is Plastic Soldier’s announcement that they will be starting work on Battlegroup Northag this summer.

This new set of rules should give you everything you need to get stuck into the “what if” scenarios of a Cold War that has heated up a bit, hopefully without those pesky nuclear weapons ruing it for everyone.

These are exactly the kind of alternate history things that tend to capture my interest when looking at historical gaming. I know very little about the Cold War, outside a bit about the conflicts in Asia at the time, so I’m intrigued to see what warfare at this point looked like.

Are you interested in the history of the Cold War? Do you want to try these new rules?
