SA-8 Gecko SAM Battery
Includes two resin and metal SA-8 Gecko SAM vehicles and one Unit Card.
The SA-8 Gecko is a highly effective mobile air-defence missile system that incorporates both its engagement radars and missile launchers in one vehicle. This allows it to detect, track, and engage aircraft independently.
Its SA-8 surface-to-air missiles are further enhanced by a radar guidance system that can guide two missiles simultaneously. It also has a back-up electro-optical guidance system that can be used if the radar is jammed by ECM (Electronic Counter Measures).

155mm Field Artillery Battery
includes one Command M16 team, one Staff team, one Gun section with three M114A1 155mm howitzers with crew one Small three-hole base, one Medium four-hole base & three Large six-hole bases.
Development of the 155mm howitzer M1 began during the late 1930s, when the United States Army determined it needed a new medium field artillery piece to replace the World War One vintage howitzer M1917.
includes three M109 (155mm) Self-propelled gun with M108 (105mm) option, four Vehicle commander figures, one M109 decal sheet & twelve rare earth magnets.
The M108 (105mm) and M109 (155mm) are the latest self-propelled artillery pieces in the US Army. Initially the lighter M108 was preferred for its ability to carry more ammunition and the relative ease of resupply. Later they were phased out in favour of the more effective M109, as the supply problems were reduced when operating from fire support bases.
M577 Command Vehicle
includes one M577 Command Vehicle & one Vehicle Commander figure.
The M577 is a derivative of the M113 series of Armoured Personnel Carriers; it is essentially a standard M113 but with an elevated roof that begun just behind the driver’s position. Originally designed as a command post vehicle, the M577 was also used as a fire-direction centre, communications vehicle and to provide mobile medical treatment.
Post War T-34 Tracks
includes one set of Post-war era T-34 tracks suitable for T-34/85 miniatures featured in Tour Of Duty & Fate On A Nation.
The T-34/85 had faithfully served the Red Army during the latter stages of World War Two and into the post-war years.
United Arab Republic Token Set
includes 30 full-colour United Arab Republic gaming tokens.
The United Arab Republic token set contains 30 full-colour gaming tokens including:
4x Bailed Out tokens; 4x Bogged Down tokens; 4x Dug In tokens; 4x Gone To Ground tokens; 4x Pinned Down tokens; 2x Ranged In tokens; 2x Reorganising tokens; 2x At The Double tokens; 4x Non-Assaulting Team tokens.
M42 (Twin 40mm)
includes one M42 (twin 40mm), one British head sprue to represent Jordanian crew for Fate Of A Nation & one America head sprue to represent American crew for Tour Of Duty.
The experience of the Korean War led US Army officials to begin the phasing out of the M24 Chaffee in favour of designs based around the more modern M41 Walker Bulldog. Included in the M24 family of vehicles was the M19 GMC. Developed towards the end of the Second World War, the M19 was armed with two of the highly effective 40mm Bofors anti-aircraft guns mounted in an open-topped turret capable of traversing 360º.
