The Volksarmee, or People’s Army, might just sound like a small group of volunteers who are really just accountants and bakers and janitors who wanted to go play Army. That is not the case, though. Within the Warsaw Pact, there’s no other army that’s more highly-trained and better equipped. And they’ll be making their way to the fields of Team Yankee tables next year.
For example, the 9th Tank Division has both T-72M tanks and a collection of BMP-1 and BMP-2 infantry fighting vehicles. The various Rifle Divisions get to the battlefield in BTR-60 8-wheeled APCs and are flanked by T-55AM2 tanks.
Pre-orders are being taken now for the various units. They’ll be shipping out for arrival on January 21st.
