Welcome to the second update looking at the models coming out for Team Yankee. This week we are going to look at airpower.
First up we have the Soviet Sukhoi Su-25 (known to NATO as the Frogfoot). It when into service in 1981 and is still used to this day. Armed with a GSh-30-2 30mm cannon and hard points for 4,000 kg (8,800 lb) worth or other equipment.
Now onto the Americans and the Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II. Known as the "Warthog", the A-10 is a beast of a plane armed with 30 mm GAU-8 Avenger cannon. This is another classic Cold War era plane and I'm sure we will see a lot of U.S. players using them,
The last picture for today is the Cobra helicopter. This is an upgraded version than the one we have seen in FOW Vietnam. You will notice the canopy is cubed not rounded for one of a few differences. In service since 1967 it is armed with a M197 20mm Vulcan Gatling gun plus a load of rockets and other hard point weapon systems.
