Battlefront has Volksarmee , East German’s for Team Yankee , coming out in Jan 2017, kinda looking forward to it as I already have 29 T-55’s built…not the right ones but what the hell….
More on all this as time goes by.09/12/2016 at 12:30 #53610irishserbParticipant
Well its about time! I’ve been waiting for East Germans since 1989. That’s awesome, thanks for posting this. Looks like I’m finally going to dive into the realm of Team Yankee a little.09/12/2016 at 18:56 #53632
It will be fun, Irishserb !! I’ll post about the book and stats here as I get them.10/12/2016 at 23:39 #53655
The T-55’s are going to be tougher than the Leopard 1’s but Rate of fire is still a 1. They will also bog on a 3 , I guess to reflect the added armor. They will be cheap to field in army points so if you can afford the 72.50 for 5 of BF’s T-55’s you can have a ton of them.11/12/2016 at 11:34 #53670Rod RobertsonParticipant
With 29 T-55’s you need only 2 or 10 more to have a full battalion of Soviet tanks with which to steamroller your opponents. Let four M1A1 Abrams and four M-2 Bradleys try to stand up to that juggernaut when it’s supported by a battery of direct fire artillery and a company of motorised infantry.
Cheers and good gaming.

My FLGS may get the Volkarmee book in next week, we seem to always run a month later that the rest of the world getting the new releases for Battlefront in. I hope that Plastic Solider Company goes ahead with their plastic T-55s as there is no way I will be able to buy the Battlefront ones.
Our Northern Front Team Yankee campaign kicks off the 29 of this month and I hope to post AAR’s and what have you .19/01/2017 at 07:37 #55915Jemima FawrParticipant
Only a small part of East Germany’s tank force was made up of funky T-55AM2, so your ‘wrong’ T-55s will be perfectly up to the job, Kyote!
Like you’ I’ve got a ton of ‘ordinary’ T-54s and T-55s ready to roll! As well as a stack of BTR-152s, so those East German infantry figures are gong to have to be bought!

Another delay at my FLGS, they maybe getting Volksarmee and some of the East German kit in next week. The Northern Front campaign kicks off next Sunday so I hope to start a new thread for it and gasp write up some AAR’s as I play out some of the battles.22/01/2017 at 07:13 #56149shelldrakeParticipant
Pity about the delay.
My Battle Front Russian Platoon arrived, and they are rather nice.25/01/2017 at 04:56 #56394
I may get the book some time this week. I kinda get discouraged when every thing takes so long.26/01/2017 at 06:19 #56497
The Volksarmee book is in but due to a fall I took last Sunday driving is painful right now so I’m going to have to wait till this Sunday to pick it up.26/01/2017 at 08:37 #56512shelldrakeParticipant
Hang in there – it is almost Sunday… well, it is one day closer to Sunday where I am in the world than where you are
