Yes, over the holidays we streamed Red Dawn.  The 1980s original (remember watching it on a VHS player- older readers will recall the Video hire shops with VHS on one isle and Beta on the other).

Two images stuck with me: First the Soviet paras floating down into that school yard in Colorado.  The authentic kit, the distinctive jump helmets, the blue berets. Secondly the very real looking replica T-72 and other AVFs.  The film makers used an M8 (M41) chassis to fabricate the Soviet tank.


Soviet paras.   A big and vital part of the WP battle plans. NATO's worse nightmare. Nobody makes them in 10mm .....yet.  Smiley

"Starshina, any word on our 10mm reinforcements?" Sandsmodels 20mm soviet paras are wondering...

(From my "Enduring oppression" Afghan-Soviet campaign...)

I remember the furore about this when it came out, about how violent it was. Bet it looks really tame now.
