Battlefront Miniatures has been showing off the new selection of pre-orders that are available for their American armies in World War III: Team Yankee. At the head of this is the new sourcebook for the Americans which guides you through building wargaming armies of the period.

World War III: Team Yankee - American Sourcebook

Here is some of the background as to what you get within this book and what it offers for those who want to dive into Team Yankee as the USA...

  • Background on the US 5th and 7th Corps, 1st Armored Division, Combat Team Alpha, 82nd Airborne Division, 9th Motorised Division, and the 2nd Marine Division.
  • Instructions on how to build a M1A1 or M1 Abrams Combat Team, M60 Patton Combat Team, Mech Combat Team, Infantry Combat Team, Combined Arms Companies, Fast Attack Company, Armored Cavalry Troops, Cavalry Troop, Marine Tank Company, Marine Infantry Company, and LAV Company
  • Three scenarios that drop you into the actions of an Armored Combat Team
  • A detailed painting guide to help you prepare your US Forces for combat

This updates the units that a lot of people will have in their collection from previous versions of Team Yankee and then develops things so you can make themed forces too. If you're looking to stop the Soviet menace then you'll want to bring all the armour that the US can bring to bear onto the tabletop.

As well as the new book, you'll also be able to pick up a selection of newly packaged miniatures throughout July. For example, there is a new American Starter Force.

As well as that, you'll also be able to buy a whole range of vehicles and aircraft that you can use as a combined arms force. The Abrams Tank Platoon is rolling out to support the rest of your American troops...

...but things go to another level with the addition of a bunch of flyers which are there to support your ground troops. During this period of the "Cold War Gone Hot", you start to see a lot more jets and helicopters used to rush the enemy and pin them down as your forces on the ground more forward.
