In Topic: kit loadouts

Soviet kit really seems to be a bastard to source these days, the fieldgear and tin pot is easy enough to source but the uniforms rarely turn up in sensible sizes, this was the case with the M88 afghanka since time immemorial but now it seems to be true of Obr.69, KLMK and even the old potato-sack KZS is scarce these days.

You can get Soviet gorkas if you want to do a special forces loadout now, and I'm forever hearing mutterings of replica afghankas being made (though no proof), but the chances of seeing a full section of Motor rifles in their wonderfully basic Obr.69 kit seems unlikely  :(

Just thought I'd add, I've only done one cold war game, and really enjoyed it. I do intend to do more, but not sure when yet. As Foden says, the dress code is not super strict, although it is good to get everyone wearing a close approximation to the real thing. 

I'd still like to see a few more European countries added to the NATO forces, (would love to turn up in Austrian kit, or West German border guard- I'm the kind of guy who likes to use less common load outs..) but I guess the fewer countries, the less confusion...

As with all of the games, there is an element of role play, and back story which really does make for a better experience.

I may try going US next time, or maybe even Soviet...

 

I've actually got a full Bundy kit together, it's not bad gear and very cheap! Sadly I doubt it'll get much use as WarPac are always so undermanned, Josh  said he'd love to do an exclusively West German Vs East German game sometime... perhaps one day. There was one West German at 'The Machine' this year, cheeky bugger refused to defect to his German brothers of the liberating NVA.
