Breakthrough Assault have added the final series of previews for Team Yankee onto their blog for the new Flames Of War ‘expansion’. See what you think of the Tanks and Anti-Air vehicles rolling onto the battlefield…
Rolling into battle are some iconic looking tanks in the M1 Abrams and variants of the T-72. All of these tanks could well be given the title of ‘work horse’.
The T-72 and variants were built in huge quantities with 250,000 of them ready to fight. As the process went on they had reactive armour added for extra protection.
Planes and airstrikes were a much deadlier prospect I would imagine after World War II and the advent of dangerous jet planes. With that in mind it seems prudent to have better Anti-Air vehicles.
Each of these vehicles are armed with different weapons for tackling incoming aircraft. The first vehicle, the M163 VADS, has a deadly rotary cannon that fires 3,000 rounds per minute.
The Shilka, next on the list, has four deadly autocannons that could fire between 850 and 1000 rounds per minute. The other Soviet option is the Gopher.
The Gopher was armed with a plethora of ground to air missiles focusing on one big explosive strike compared to relentless fire. Basically, the aircraft of the Cold War era should beware.
What do you think?
