|A somewhat minimalist Soviet infantry battalion|
Rapid Fire! calls a small HQ section, three six-to-eight man companies and a heavy company with an MMG and an 81mm mortar a battalion for the Soviets. That being so, and at the lower end of the scale, I present my first Soviet infantry battalion.
The second battalion is being sketched out now which means I'll also have to find a Regimental HQ, a 45mm ATG and a 75mm infantry gun. All fun tasks, I hasten to add!
Also on the drawing board are a company of Revell panzer grenadiers. I spent a rather grim session early this morning shaving off the flash and mould lines before undercoating them.
