So, while WWIII is still a fantasy, Battlefront is taking orders for Stripes, their new book for Team Yankee. It’s actually… well… the Yankees. No, not the baseball team. But the Americans. You can get your pre-order on for not just the book, but a special army bundle, too....

Halfway there. We’re halfway to getting back to the weekend. Methinks I’m going to take it easy this weekend. I found out my LGS is going to be absolutely packed with several events running for games I don’t really play, so I’ll probably just veg at my place. I could use a rel...

Not every operation that the military does is going to be known to the public. There’s all sorts of deeply covert missions going on all the time using teams of super-highly-trained soldiers. These various teams are surgical in their strikes, taking out key enemy personnel and locations. And soo...

There’s a new book coming out for Team Yankee. It’s called Red Thunder, and as you’d expect from them, they’re having a whole day dedicated to features for it. That day, by the way, is tomorrow. It starts pretty early, too. I mean, for many of us, it’s this afternoon, si...

Afghanistan has a pretty long history of conflict. For around a decade, it was the Russians that were trying to go in and take over the place. It didn’t turn out so well for them. But how did a technologically-superior group have such issues? Well, you can find out in Hind & Seek, a new [&h...

Is this week going by slowly for everyone else, too, or is it just me? I don’t know if it’s because I’m working from home as the new office continues to be set up, or if it’s just that this week is one that’s taking forever. Maybe it’s that I don’t currently ...

You know, you want to have your troops well-armed to take on numerous potential adversaries. The East German Mot-Schützen platoons certainly are. From several different types of anti-tank weapons to numerous anti-infantry weapons, including grenade launchers, they can take on just about anything the ...

In modern warfare (and it has actually been this way since about WWII), you have to make sure that enemy air power doesn’t hinder your ground forces too much. You can have your own planes try and neutralize them, but your aircraft can’t be everywhere at once. As such, having anti-aircraft...

During wartime, you will often see equipment get hasty upgrades, looking to make those particular items better than they were coming right off the line. In this case, several T-55 tanks were upgraded to have new fire control systems as well as extra armor against enemy anti-tank weapons. The result i...

Versatility is important in production. If you can create an item that can be quickly adapted to fill different roles, that’s good, as it will increase production speeds since you don’t have to keep retooling entire things from scratch. The 9P148 Konkurs uses the same chassis as the BRDM-...

If you’re looking to scout enemy formations, having a vehicle that can get over a wide range of terrain is crucial. That’s just the case with the BRDM-2. Not only can it go across open ground easily, it has an extra set of wheels that it can lower in order to make it over trenches. [&hell...

Getting your troops from place to place takes a lot of consideration. You want them to be able to get most places, get there fast, and be somewhat protected from enemy fire along the way. Thankfully, the British army in Team Yankee has the Spartan/Striker vehicles to do just the thing....

During WWII, the Allies weren’t known for their huge tanks. No, the Germans, with their Tiger and Tiger II are what’s remembered as the big tanks around. Well, in WWIII, that’s no longer the case. The idea of taking lots of fast, light tanks has given way to a new form of thinking. ...
