Welcome to the final model preview for Team Yankee (but not our final Team Yankee preview!).
Let's start with the M1 Abrams, the work horse of the U.S. forces. Entering service in 1980 and replacing the M60 Patton. Armed with a 105mm L/52 M68 rifled gun and protected by Chobham armour this is a beast of a tank.
Moving onto anti-air, the M163 Vulcan Air Defense System (VADS) is an adaption of the M113 chassis. Armed with a 20 mm M61 Vulcan rotary cannon, the gun fires 3,000 rounds per minute
The first of the two Soviet options is the ZSU-23-4 "Shilka". Entering serive in the early 1960s the Shilka is armed with four water-cooled 23 mm 2A7 autocannons that have a cyclic rate of 850–1,000 rounds per minute.
And there you go we have looked at all the models for the first wave of Team Yankee. Let us know what your favourite is, I can't decide between the Hind, A-10 Warthog or the T-72...
Thanks for reading
