Quote from: Big Insect on 09 July 2022, 11:24:51 PMMuch appreciated - it was a devil to research due to the various/assorted designations for the different equipment (e.g. a Type 59 can be a rifle and an MBT for example). Plus the fact that there are/were so many different prototypes and export models. It's really easy to go off down a research 'rabbit-hole' and get 'fixated' on a specific vehicle type, only to discover it was never used by the PLA and only a handful of prototypes were ever made!I've also got very interested in the multiple arming of the later MBTs, with each potentially having their own separate ATGW launchers and even SAM capabilities. Hence I've started to add Upgrades to Armour units as well as to Infantry.There is a post Vietnam War Vietnamese on its way (not far off) - so that 1979 Sino-Vietnamese border clash will be possible; and also a post Korean War (is that an allowable statement??? - maybe a post 27 July 1953 ceasefire) North Korean War list on the stocks as well. I'm also planning a Royal Thai - but that might take me a while as I've got to keep myself on-task with the published release agenda. So for now, it's a couple of African list next on the drawing board.Just need somebody (Leon???) to produce some Cold War Chinese in 10mm and we're off CheersMark

I am having a terrible time of trying to work out what is what and could do with the help! I am not familiar with PLA/N gear at all and mini manufacturers seem to have little consistency.
Quote from: rim66 on 12 August 2022, 02:31:06 PMI was just looking at the Falklands list and saw the Carl Gustav - I was at a talk by Maj Gen (Retd) Aidrian Freer a few weeks ago and he mentioned that they did not function in the conditions and so were not used - he was 2ic A Coy 3 Para at the time. That said, I am pretty sure the Naval Landing Party used them so they should be there, but thought I would mention it for anyone wanting to do a force for the latter part of the conflict.I hope this helps/is of interest.Kind regards,Richard
