For Team Yankee we can see two types of air support, ground attack planes and helicopters. Personally I love air support and I always want to try and get it into a game, not because I think it’s effective (not for me anyway), but because I love the way it looks.
First up we have the Soviet Sukhoi Su-25 (known to NATO as the Frogfoot). It when into service in 1981 and is still used to this day. Armed with a GSh-30-2 30mm cannon and hard points for 4,000 kg (8,800 lb) worth or other equipment.
Next up we have the Mil Mi-24 (known to NATO as the Hind), this is a classic Cold War icon! The Hind came into service in 1972 and is still also still in use today. Armed with a 12.7 mm Yakushev-Borzov Yak-B Gatling gun, either a twin-barrel GSh-30K or twin-barrel GSh-23L and a load of other hard point equipment. This is the model I’m most looking forward to getting for Team Yankee.
Thanks for reading this update on Team Yankee, next week is the turn of the artillery so keep an eye out for that.
