V4 Flames Of War 

V4: 12 Months, 8 Books and Counting
A year ago we launched V4 to the world. It was the culmination of many man hours of work throughout the Design Studio, and the entire company. It was fair to say that like all new products that we release there was a mix of excitement and trepidation about how it would be received, especially given the (literally) game changing nature of V4. Now we find ourselves 12 months down the track with tens of thousands of games having been played and more tweets, comments and posts than we could ever hope to track, as well as small mountain of books and models in the hands of new players. We wanted to take a assessment on where V4 sits right now and where we thought it was going, and of course share it with you, our community.

Russian Grand Tournament 2018
The first Russian GT FoW gathered 26 players from 5 countries: Portugal, Serbia, Poland, Belarus and Russia. We played 5 games over 2 days at the greatest place we could have dreamt of – the Central Museum of the Great Patriotic War, or the Victory Museum. After the tourney, a tour in English was organized for the foreign guests.

M14/41 or Semovente Platoon (Plastic)
The M14/41 is excellent against enemy infantry. It has plenty of machine-gun firepower and an effective high-explosive round for engaging anti-tank guns. The Semovente mounted the 75mm howitzer on the chassis of the M14/41 tank. The Semovente mounts a bigger gun, and  is also more heavily armoured, thanks to no longer needing a turret.

90mm on Lancia Battery (IBX15)

90mm on Lancia Battery
The Royal Army developed truck-mounted guns in the First World War to make moving heavy artillery easier. They continued this trend with the new 90/53 long-barrelled 90mm heavy antiaircraft gun, mounting it on a Lancia Ro truck along with numerous outriggers to stabilise it when firing.

Although large, the resulting vehicle provides the artillery arm with a mobile, high-velocity, dual-purpose anti-aircraft/anti-tank weapon.

90mm on Lancia Battery (IBX15)...

AB41 Armoured Car Platoon
As a wheeled armoured car, the AB41 is very fast on hard surfaces, although less mobile in difficult terrain. Its 20mm gun is effective against enemy armoured cars, allowing it to drive off enemy reconnaissance to protect their own force's advance.

AB41 Armoured Car Platoon (IBX16)...

AB41 Armoured Car Platoon (IBX16)

L6/40 Light Tank Platoon (IBX17)

L6/40 Light Tank Platoon
The L6/40 was designed as an infantry-support tank, so is well armoured for such a tiny vehicle, giving it a distinct advantage over the lighter Allied armoured cars.

While its 20mm gun is an effective weapon, having the commander act as gunner and loader limits how well it can be used.

Avanti Unit Cards
For a limited time only the Avanti Unit Card Pack will be available. The pack contains one of each Unit Card that relates the book. These packs have been designed to assist existing players that have already bought our miniatures and built their armies under previous editions and want cards to help transition to V4.

In addition to the Weekly Draws we also have prizes each week for any Featured Battle Reports we highlight on the Team Yankee website

This week we have two featured Battle Reports from our Firestorm: Stripes Campaign. Harald Knauer's Battle Report drew our eye not because the author won, but rather because he learnt some valuable lessons.

Check out Harald Knauer's Battle Report here...

Our second featured Battle Report comes from thommo1137.

We thought this one was worth a look for a couple of reasons, firstly it just looked like a fun table to play a game on and if you are going to play, then it is nice to play on a good looking table. Secondly who doesn't want to play a game with their son (or dad)!

Check out thommo1137's report here...

We will be in touch in the next few days to arrange your prizes and we are looking forward to your next reports.

T-55AM2 Panzer Kompanie (Plastic) (TEBX03)

It was also fitted with a laser rangefinder.

Counter-Air Defense In Team Yankee

Counter-Air Defense In Team Yankee
Air power in Team Yankee comes in two forms, attack aircraft Close Air Support (CAS) and attack helicopters Close Combat Attack (CCA). Both can be devastating but must first clear the Anti-Aircraft defences or Counter-Air Defence of the enemy. The focus of this article is to look at what units are the most effective at Counter-Air Defence. This serves both sides as it also defines priority targets for SEAD – Suppression of Enemy Air Defence.

Return Of The Gaming Mat
Last year we released our first Flames Of War double sided gaming mat. Customers with long memories will remember that we suffered from a number of issues outside our control including our manufacturing partner in China pulling a disappearing act, literally packing up their machines and moving without telling anyone.

Now we are ready to release a new version of the mat that incorporates a number of the improvements that customers suggested to us, ranging from some changes to the image on the mat through to how it was packed to avoid creases.
