Spanish mech-cavalry 1980s

Post by Richard B. »

I haven`t added anything to this my only Cold War force/project for ages; but when I saw Hobby Den`s German M113 mitt Milan I had to add one :D I already had a couple of pack of Elhiem West Germans/NATO guys infantry AT guys awaiting painting anyway, so did them as a group.

I`ve left all the vehicles for this unit without stowage, just the way I`ve done them :D

They'll need a truck then for hauling their stuff!
I've just seen a photo of a BMR 600 with Milan mounted in similar fashion.....

This unit represents one in the process of upgrading, they have a couple of Shaun`s lovely BMRs but the rest are still in M113s :D Including M106 mortar and M577 command tracks
