After a little break for Great War and a couple of podcast with Phil Yates about Team Yankee we have another stat card post and it's one that will be popular, Air Power!
We will start with the A-10 and I think you will be surprised by a few things on the stat card.
The first thing to note is the A-10 hits like a normal unit, with a moving ROF (of course as it would crash if it didn't move), Oh and AT 27... AT 27!!! T-72's be afraid, very afraid.
Also it has a hit on value, this would make you think Air is shot at like any other unit in the game and not your skill rating.
Also the Strike Aircraft rule means it turns up on a 4+ instead of the old dice pool.
Now the Helicopters in the form of the much wanted Hinds.
This looks very similar to what you see in Vietnam. The Hind also has a nasty missile, only AT 23 but thats enough to keep M1's honest.
6 for 15 points is going to be a mandatory platoon in all my Soviet lists!
Thanks for reading and come back next week for more Team Yankee goodness.
