Team Yankee VADS & ITV platoon

Do you have any bootleg stats on the expanded Team Yankee world? I picked up some T-80s (6mm) which are very much in the period but not sure how to rate the points. I also have some Heuy gunships and other oddities that I am not interested in waiting on BF to figure out. Thanks in advance.

I don't have an inside source.

Ur best bet is to find or start a thread on the BF forum, Team Yankee section.

 

These two threads most closely relate to your questions:

Confirmed at Salute that British would be out November/Pre-Christmas.

Ok, so I picked up this kit(x2).  I got busy with the magnets and made at least one model that can serve as a M113, VADS, Mortar Carrier, or ITV.  It was an interesting challenge.  I set up each of the base chassis(s?) up to be taken this far, but I've so far only built out one that is fully 100% configurable.

 

Now that I know that it can be done, I've been paying a little more attention to the appropriate mix of configurations.  I will post pictures of my model/magnet config, but if you have any ideas on how many models really need to be "taken all the way", I'm all ears.  

 

It's a fair amount of extra work so my intention is to be efficient AND flexible.  So if the most logical mix is to have 4 that can be anything, and then 4 that can be M113's and Mortar carriers, no problem. Or some other odd mix.  I have 8 m113 chassis and and can take all 8 to the "100%" status, but that seems like overkill.  

 

Your opinion might just save me work that I am otherwise am OK with doing.  What do you think?

Excellent approach.

Chkd rulebook.

Assuming 1 Combat Team + Division Support, here are the US Army M113 variant numbers (varies by Armored or Mech):

VADs= 0, 2 or 4 (Div SPT)(either team)

ITV= 0-8, in pairs (0 or 2/Armored, 0-8/Mech)

SP Mortars= 0, 3 or 6 (either team)

JustJokin, I am also doing the magnet thing. I look forward to your pictures to see how you approached it. I am doing mine to get more flexibility ... though I will have to add a second group to have what will be most flexible. 

 

I didn't magnetize the M113's / ITV's turrets ... I just use a wee bit of sticky tack ... does the trick ... makes the pieces interchangeable. Though I did magnetize the gun deck.

 

I would ... in my mind ... do four and then see how that works. You may say ... good, that's all I need or you might want to do more. I will let you know when I get to that point. Right now progress is slow and the M1 Tank's stowage has my attention for the moment.
