    Played some more games and it is very tank centric. Infantry and Arty are not the game winners they should be. I may have to tinker with it. But the plastic kit is fun to build!!!

    The BF Carnations tracks mold is already showing wear and the tracks are lumpy with flash between the road wheels. Not what I expected from a new model.

    Old Man,

    What the hell are Carnation tracks?
    EDIT** Disregard, I just figured out you’re talking about the Soviet SPGs.

    And regarding your comments on the rules, that infantry and arty are not the battle winners, I don’t think they are/would have been on the Cold War mechanized battlefield.  I think tanks were/would have been the arm of decision; sure arty can cause casualties, but in the overall scheme of things it was breaking up formations and/or pinning formations in place so that armored/mechanized elements could outmaneuver them and leave them to whither on the vine.  Same goes for infantry, certainly infantry that couldn’t keep up with the tanks.  For all the talk of ‘having to dig them out of the built up areas,’ if you’re doing maneuver warfare correctly you’re by-passing the built up areas.

    V/R,
    Jack

    Carnation is FOW speak for the Soviet 2S1 122 Self Propelled Howitzer. Sorry.

    Carnations done, now working on the M-109’s Tracks are not as bad but still not crisp.

    The 2S1 Gvozdika (Гвоздика) – Gvozdika is Russian for Carnation.
