I wanted a company of mid-80's Soviet tanks with Kontakt-1 ERA and tried to order the nice Khurasan T-64BV below but unfortunately it's unavailable. Oh well.


Not to be deterred, I found a thread Tango posted back in 2016 about a T-72B with Kontakt-1 offered by Skytrex: TMP link

It's not listed in their web store under 15mm post-war Command Decision, so I contacted the nice folks at Skytrex to see if it's still being offered. Luckily it is "by special order" so I ordered a bunch. Now I'll have a dozen Skytrex T-72B's with Kontakt-1 to go along with my 12 T-72B obr 1989's with Kontakt-5 from Zvezda. By the way, I previously ordered Skytrex's Bradleys and Challenger 1's and highly recommend them to anyone. Top quality stuff.

So more unofficial TY cards for everyone.

The profile and point costs of the T-72B with Kontakt-1 is exactly the same as the T-80B I made cards for earlier (scroll down for unbroken pics): TMP link

I also revised the cards of the T-72B with Kontakt-5 I posted earlier since the default T-72B is now the version with Kontakt-1. I know it really should be the vanilla version without any ERA at all but most T-72B's have ERA of some kind so that's the way it is.







New picture!

Why all the weird numbers when organising Soviet tank companies?
Is'nt it 10 tanks? 3, 3 tank platoons, and a command tank=10.

It is. They explain it by the fact that companies may have sustained losses but what it really is is that players can mix and match all kind of different equipment within a certain point budget and/or not everyone can afford to buy 15mm models by the 10s.

Thank you for the work, 28mm! (BTW, you might need to change your forum handle… evil grin )

It was a pleasure adapting these cards, though when TY second edition comes out next year BF will no doubt switch them to the new format as seen in FoW V4, 'Nam and FoaN.

I should give proper acknowledgment to the incredible Alex Clark, whose immense modeling skills are in evidence on these cards:
