Bradleys are coming in 'late' TY, along with M1A1s, Apaches, etc, so likely to be a desert/middle east setting. Main thing I'm grumpy about is the lack of Blackhawks, but it makes sense to use the Huey given the Nam/early TY revamp thats coming. Interested to see how they handle the twin engined huey the navy & marines used.
The good news is Harriers, which should be lower points than A10s, and chapparels and Sgt Yorks! And HMMMVs, which I can see being useful to tear across the field and engage enemy AA units. If I ever get time to actually play!

I was looking forward to the M1A1's also; the LAV models look great however plus the expanded range of AA (although given the creep in AA capability, I kind of feel Air support is not worth taking any longer - I certainly now look to spend my points elsewhere <on AA units funnily enough>).

Fingers crossed for Bradley's / Apache's in the near future.....

Pre-orders are up on BF site; just in time for Xmas! :)
All the new stuff looks v nice. Once the book is out I can decide if I want to go Marines or Air Mobile. Not too enamoured with mech platoons or M113s in MERDC.
My M1s are done - yay! Now working on Cobras in USMC colours (only cos it looks nicer than olive drab).
Just started a new job in Newport, but hoping to make it to the Duke at some point before I retire ...

I’m sure they’ll die just as cheaply! :)
