This week, I'm finishing off a Danish armored reconnaissance squadron. In 1981, it would have consisted of two troops of light tanks; unmodernized M41 Walker Bulldogs:
Also three squads of infantry (some squadrons had four), each mounted in an M113A1:
And a platoon of six reconnaissance Land Rovers (likely to be 88's):
As usual, O8 doesn't have armed Land Rovers, other than the 110 SOV, so I have to grit my teeth and use it. And they don't have 88's period.
The squadron commander would be mounted in a Danish home grown M113A1 command vehicle, as Denmark never bought M577's:
And everyone together for the obligatory group shot:
The upcoming three day weekend has me full of plans to get loads of painting done, while it has Mrs. HistoryPhD full of plans to prevent me from getting that accomplished. Need I say whose plans will win out? See you next time!
