    I am looking for some transport for my 15mm Khurasan Miniatures DEVGRU operators, pictured below.  I was considering these Panther Command vehicles from Evil Bear Wargames, but as DEVGRU are American spec ops I was hoping to find something ultra modern American to provide transport.  Any thoughts?

    A bit more on the DEVGRU on my blog.

    DEVGRU is airborne-amphibious so their vehicles are Black Hawks or zodiacs I think. Modified HMMWV or MRAP vehicles would be appropriate in some situations but I don’t think you’d see SEALs driving around in a point target like that too often. Risky.

    These are rather ‘nifty’……

    Or stick with the Hi-lux pick ups available ‘locally’ wherever that might be!

    A damaged helicopter like in Operation Neptune Spear?

    Those are brave men knocking at our door. Let's go kill them!

    MA – You are correct of course, but for table top gaming I thought I might stretch the envelope a bit and give them some sort of “cool” vehicle for transport.

     

    GR – In looking at the MRAP…looks less cool than I had hoped for.

     

    Maybe I should be asking about 1/100th scale Blackhawks!  But I still do like the look of those Evil Bear Panthers.  🙂

     

    Found this silent Hawk:

    Rebel Minis MATV Comanche?

    Big and chunky, looks mean too………. as an Oshkosh stand in.

    I snatched a relatively cheap (a dozen bucks, IIRC) Italeri 1/100 diecast “MH-X Silent Hawk” on ebay a couple of month ago…

    But for the kind of games I play in 15mm, a chopper is more of a terrain feature than a actual gaming piece, so I went for a couple of the Rebel Minis MATV Comanche “not-Oshkosh M-ATV)…

    I explained it away by making up my own fictional USSOCOM unit (I’m quite into imagi-nations and made up “not-this” and “not-that”) inspired by Tom Clancy “Ghost Recon” Group for Specialized Tactics (GST, hence “ghost”)…

    I called them Special Target Reconnaissance teams (SpecTR -> “Specter”) and inspired myself form US Army Long Range Surveillance (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Long_Range_Surveillance) units but dialing the badassery on 11 to put them in the same league as DEVGRU.

    Any scenario I play calling for whatever US SF unit now see them replaced by Specter teams!
