Lonnie's Lynx Airmobile Company
With Lonnie Mullins
While it’s true that I’m still in the middle of finishing up my first 100 points of West Germans for Team Yankee, I must admit that I’ve been secretly squirrelling away Lynx Helicopter sprues for an Airmobile Company ever since I laid eyes on Iron Maiden a month or so ago.

You see, I’m a product of the Cold War. I grew up watching the Vietnam War reported on the nightly news, had friends go off to battle in both Operation Desert Storm and Operation Iraqi Freedom, and I’ve been fascinated with loads of helicopters delivering battle-hardened troops to the sharp end ever since. So, with that being said, if I were in command of a unit of the Gordon Highlanders – or, in this case, Mullins’ Marauders – here’s what I’d field for my 100-points:
Lynx Airmobile Company HQ
1 x SLR Rifle Team
2 x GPMG SF teams

3 points
Lynx Airmobile Platoon
4 x GPMG teams
3 x Milan missile teams
1 x 2” mortar team
3 x Lynx Helicopters

Just the idea of having 20 helicopters in my force sounds awesome! There’s more than enough Milan teams to deal with enemy armor. Add to the force some heavy artillery to eat away at enemy infantry with SAM batteries protecting them and a small harassing unit of scouts makes me drool (or maybe that’s just because I’m old). Once I finish off my West Germans, I know what I’ll be doing next!

Wow, lots of helicopters. I wonder how would transfer them to games without braking those rotor blades.
