Correction to my earlier post. The Chieftains are Dinky toys, not Corgi. Corgi did produce a range of Vietnam era vehicles under the Unsung Heroes range which would be suitable for various NATO armies. Again these can be picked up relatively cheaply at Toy fairs and are @ 1:50 scale.

When Soviet troops entered and then occupied Afghanistan in 1979, they wore uniforms little different to those that their fathers and grandfathers wore during The Great Patriotic War. Armies need to adapt in order to be effective, and these miniatures represent troops from the middle to late period of the war, reflecting changes to Soviet kit after combat experience.

The troops are equipped with modern body armor, an innovation for the Red Army and the first issued to Soviet troops since World War II, when some specialized assault engineers were equipped with body armor. Soviet troops also adopted the 'chest rig' for holding their spare Kalashnikov magazines, at first using webbing taken from their enemy, later producing their own version of the Chinese-style chest rig.

Both sets of Motorized Infantry portray troops in summer clothing, wearing the light-weight KLMK camouflage suit. The Soviet tropical hat dates back to the 1930s and was still a popular item until the end of the Soviet occupation in 1989.

Both the helmeted and tropical hat-wearing sets feature different poses, and consist of ten figures.

Soviets

We also have a set of five Soviet tank crewmen armed to the teeth and ready for action. Inspired by a certain 1980s war/action film. All are equipped with historically accurate weapons, but with a ghostly aspect thanks to their Soviet issue gas masks.

Soviet tankers

A 28mm set of elite U.S. Navy SEALs have arrived as reinforcements for our first set of SEALs. Equipped the latest GPNVG-18 night vision goggles, they can be grouped together as a 'stack' for dynamic entry into close-quarter battle.

The figures portray elements of the U.S. Naval Special Warfare Development Group during Operation Neptune Spear.
