Hello all and welcome to another Team Yankee Monday update.
Today we are going to look at the Formation Cards for Team Yankee. These are the equivalent of the briefing books for the WW2 version of FOW.
The pictures really tell the story here but I will add a few points. The Soviet card above shows your list options, you can either run Infantry or Tanks companies and both have the same support options available to them. To me this looks like a “series one” list, I think it will get bulked out at a later date.
One point and to put a few peoples minds at rest, there is a Recon option for the Soviets as shown by the BMP-1 or 2 Recon platoon.
You will notice that the Battalion Commander is only 5pts, so either Team Yankee uses a different points system or you will get a lot of tanks in your 1750pts games! I’d lean towards it being a 100pts game now. Also notice the how Battalion Commander has a better skill rating than the bog standard T-72’s we showed you last week.
The American card is similar to the Soviets, again the card shows it’s both a Tank list or an Infantry list. You may also notice that they have made it really easy to work out the models you need to purchase by including the product codes.
Next week we are taking a week away from Team Yankee to go back in time by about 70 odd years to 1918 to have a look at the new Great War briefing book.
But fear not Team Yankee fans, we will be back the week after and there is still lots to chat about. We have a podcast interview with Phil in the works, a look at the rules and the army deals and much more. So stay tuned.
Thanks for reading
