I got two of these finished to go along with my two squads of mechanized Angolan infantry. I built them stock and didn't bother with any stowage. I really liked the clean lines of the vehicle and low profile. They seem a little small next to the slightly oversized infantry but they fit the role of amored transport very well.
|Angolan mechanized troops move into position on the|
outskirts of a small town.
|The BMP and some infantry suppress the enemy while|
other troops use the vehicle as cover.
|With the Sagger mounted over the 73mm cannon the BMP-1|
provides the Angolans with much needed bite.
|Its amphibious capabilities allow the Angolans to take the|
fight to the ROP regardless of the terrain.
|The BMP-1 has firing ports that allow its passengers to|
fire from within the vehicle.
Still have a ton of things that I'm working on, everything from more Belgians to neat armor conversions for the ROP. I'm working on getting enough tanks together to have some large scale armor battles between the different forces involved in the WIA. I really want to have a slug match between an Angolan Armored Battalion and the Republican Guard Armored Battalion. To have the kind of fight I want I'll need more Republican Guard infantry and tanks, and more Angolan vehicles too, so it might be a few months before I get to have the rumble in the jungle that I want. Thanks for reading and stay thirsty.
