Home Forums Modern Team Yankee – 1968! Reply To: Team Yankee – 1968!


Thank you all for your kind comments! Yes by any measure the Centurion is a fine tank, probably still in service somewhere in the world, and a fine looking vehicle too! I agree that 1968 does seem to have been a bit of a low point in the Cold War, definitely plenty more scenario fodder to be found…

Yes, 2 Troop took no casualties, but 1 Troop probably left it too late to pull back to their second set of fall back positions and lost 2 Centurions unassing the village. NATO got away with it with some useful artillery shoots, whereas the Soviet artillery was a real let-down – I may have to rethink the ‘Conscript’ label for the Red Gunners….
