The Breakthrough Assault previews continue for Flames Of War Team Yankee where they’re looking at the artillery that both the Soviets and US can bring to bear. If you thought the amount of firepower vehicles could level in World War II was impressive wait till you see these…
Kicking things off for the Soviets we have the Soviet 2S1 Gvozdika which comes armed with a rather deadly 122mm cannon. According to the information on the vehicle it is amphibious and could work in all manner of different battlefields.
If that one cannon wasn’t enough then you can look to this ‘Hail’. It comes with forty rockets mounted on the trailer at the back so even the best cover isn’t going to survive that.
The Soviets are really bringing the shock and awe to the battlefield I feel. If you’d like to know more about them as vehicles you can find out about them over on their blog post.
The Americans show off with an even bigger cannon for their first vehicle. The M109 is armed with an impressive 155mm cannon.
The M106 is armed with guided missiles on the top of it which makes it quite an interesting and quick ‘move and fire’ style vehicle for harrying armoured assailants.
Last but not least we have the Mortar Carrier known as the M106. These existed during World War II of course but have been up armoured and armed for the new age of warfare during the Cold War.
Are you excited about the models coming out for Flames Of War?
