Flames of War: Team Yankee – Scorpion/ScimitarPlatoon

The British Army Of the Rhine had three tracked reconnaissance regiments. Therecce troops of the first two were equipped entirely with Scimitarreconnaissance vehicles, while the recce troops of the third mixed Scimitars andScorpions together.

As divisional troops, the medium recce squadron’s main role is to be atrip line to detect Soviet thrusts and identify the main effort ahead of thedivisions main line of resistance, while denying Soviet reconnaissance troopsthe opportunity to identify where the British defences lie. A secondary role isto act as a mobile force to eliminate light Soviet forces airlanded behind thefront line.

The main difference between the Scorpion and the Scimitar is their mainarmament. The Scimitar mounts a 30mm L21 Rarden automatic gun with a high rateof fire, while the Scorpion mounts a 76mm L23 gun with a slower rate of fire,but a deadly HESH (High Explosive Squash Head) round that demolishes lightarmoured vehicles, buildings, and infantry bunkers with equal ease.

Being small and light, the Scorpion and Scimitar are exceedingly quick.However, that small size is achieved at the cost of having the commander loadthe main gun making it difficult to coordinate fire and movement.

  • 4 x Scorpion / Scimitar plastic sprues
