Strategy & Tactics 309, Mar-Apr 2018

Strategy & Tactics 309, Mar-Apr 2018

The War of Turkish Liberation: After their defeat in World War I, the Ottoman Empire was in ruins. In May 1919, Turkish nationalist forces would find themselves in a war for independence.

Other Articles:

Battle of Antietam: The Battle of Antietam is remembered as the bloodiest single day battle in American military history. Often overshadowed by other famous battles in the war, Antietam was instrumental in enabling Abraham Lincoln to issue the Emancipation Proclamation.

Lucky Forward - Patton’s Third Army in Lorraine: In the course of 280 days, the US Third Army blazed across Europe, liberating over 81,000 square miles of territory. From September to early December 1944, the Third Army fought a grinding campaign to push the German army from Lorraine.

Aotrs Shipyards Jan 2018 Release: BTR-70

Aotrs Shipyards is a webstore on Shapeways.com, a 3D print house which had production and shipping facilities located in the USA and the Netherlands.

We start the new year with the BTR-70 at 144th, complete with the swimming hull!

Photos as usual of Replicator 2 prototypes - albeit with a different filament, seeing as we have not been able to get our preferred grey. This brown is... adequate to the task, but it definitely doesn't look or photograph as well, I'm afraid. (I think with it being darker, it makes any tiny strings show up far worse - the sort of thing you wouldn't notice on a painted model - and, of course, not something you get on the Shapeways WSF anyway! Still, I always figure it is better to have an actual picture than a render.)

APCs are likely to be something of a theme for at least the first part of the year! Next month will see the release of the BTR-80; the Chinese YW-531 (aka Type 63 aka K63) is ready and will likely follow and the British FV432 is underway.
