Based on the book written by Harold Coyle in 1987, Team Yankee brings the conflict that simmered throughout the Cold War to life in a game by Battlefront Miniatures where you command your troops in miniature on a realistic battlefield.
‘All Call Signs Charlie, Zero Bravo’, Major Charles Leslie alerted his troops. ‘Move in five.’
After days of hard fighting, they were worn and frayed. Their expressions were grim and hard. The coming battle was not going to be easy. The Soviets fought tenaciously to hold what they’d taken. It wouldn’t matter though. C Squadron would live up to the regimental motto: ‘Death or Glory’, and today it would be the enemy that would die and C Squadron that would reach for glory.
Iron Maiden, British Army in World War III expands the story started in Team Yankee. Iron Maiden tells the story of Major Charles Leslie’s Squadron of Chieftain tanks and their defence of Northern Germany against the Soviet invasion. Iron Maiden provides players with Army lists for a Chieftain Armoured Squadron, FV432 Mechanised Company, Spartan Reconnaissance Company, and a Lynx Airmobile Company as well as history of the British Army leading into the Cold War, painting guides and scenarios.
With its usual professionalism, the British Army had prepared for war. Now, as the Soviet Army flooded across the border into West Germany, it was ready and waiting. Scorpion and Scimitar light tanks skirmished with the Soviet forward detachments as the Chieftain armoured regiments waited. The infantry held the towns and woods, forcing the enemy into killing zones. If anything broke through, the airmobile troops in their Lynx helicopters would hold them.
