Any wargame rules recommendations for 6mm for the Cold War and Modern era that do not need markers, tokens or book keeping (or at least very little) that also provide fun and satisfying game play?

Team Yankee uses markers tho right? Gone to ground, pinned, bailed out?

Cold War Commander is very popular, uses a well tested engine, and has very little bookkeeping.

Modern Spearhead requires both written orders, tracking artillery ammunition and some means of marking suppression.

CWC requires (from memory) annoying little piles of dice all over the table to show hits.

Brigade Commander is good, but you need to keep track of pinned units, suppressed units and units with potential casualties.

WRG 1950+ requires you to track neutralisation.

NATO Brigade Commander requires you to track hits and units which are disorganised or routed.

I would humbly submit that finding _any_ modern rules which don't require some sort of markers is a tall order.

In the venerable AHGC AiW you turned suppressed units over, but they were counters.

Fistful of Tows. You will need a marker for suppressed units and keeping track of who moved or fired and that is about it.

Covert Laserstorm from scifi to modern. Should be easy to do.

I'll second Laserstorm. A very good set of rules that didn't get the fame they deserved. Converting back to modern should be straightforward.

Convert KISS Rommel to modern.

Must read through laserstorm, got it for year or so. but also TAC II could work.
