Category 2 Motor Rifle Battalion

 Hot off the production line is this battalion of Cold War Warpact infantry.  These are mostly the 1970s Airfix 'Modern' Russians with some Esci figures and a couple from a chap Chinese set of WW2 Sovs.

 As their first outing will be as 1973 Syrians it is fitting that they are photographed on my sun-scorched and desert-like lawn.

I bought several sets of these Airfix figures. I'm surprised they seem to have a bad rep. While the number of poses is bad, the figures can be used for different armies, such as your Syrians.

What will they be using for transport?

I think they’re nice figures. Much better than the dreadful US ‘moderns’ companion set. And as you say, very versatile!

Depending on their luck, either BMP, BTR-60, BTR-152 or Shank’s Pony......

They look ok for a rush job.

There's something reassuring and just right about the officer with a red topped clip board, that should please the political education comrade!

Keep this up, Tim, and I might be forced by your example to go down the same track with my own Army men stuff. Very tempting notion, your set up looks so good.
