Stripes Logo

The United States has the most powerful armed forces in the world. Three army corps stand ready to defend Western Europe from the red horde poised across the Iron Curtain. Armoured troops’ powerful M60 Patton tanks or state of the art M1 or IPM1 Abrams tanks, mechanized infantry mounted in reliable M113 personnel carriers, and light infantry of the 82nd Airborne all stand ready to stop the red tide.

Stripes: US Forces In World War III...

Introduced in 1983, the Marine Corps have organised a number of light armoured vehicle battalions equipped with the LAV and assigned to the Marine divisions. Each battalion has four light armoured vehicle companies equipped with LAV-25, LAV-AT and LAV-M vehicles.

The standard LAV-25 found in the light armoured vehicle platoons mounts a turret armed with an M242 25mm chain gun that can fire anti-tank and high explosive rounds. A coaxial M240 machine-gun is mounted alongside the chain-gun, and a pintle-mounted M240 machine-gun is mounted on the turret roof.
