In 1988 a unit of US Navy SEALs was tasked with a raid mission.

Soviet MRBM launchers were housed in camouflaged and hardened underground bunkers dotted around rural Cuba.

As part of Operation ORTSAC '88, one team was to locate and disable a complex near San Christobal before it could fuel and launch nuclear weapons at the good Americans of Florida.

That "M16A2" (3rd/4th pics extreme left and extreme right) didn't turn out good. It's an M16A1 originally and I scored the barrel cover to make it look like an A2 but the paint filled in my scoring : (

SEAL Platoon complete!

Now to work on late '80s Russkies! Among others I got the recently reissued ESCI Warpac (put out by Italeri in that same old ESCI crisp detail from the day.) set to combine with my Ultima Ratio Soviets..
