The 3mm project expands to the US Army. I opted to start with a cavalry formation, because cavalry is awesome, and everything else can be lumped into the lesser category of "ain't cav" I am aiming for a mid-80's look for my collection, which meant going with forest green as the basic color. (All of the M1 (IP) I remember from the early 90's were still in this color) This also helps them stand out from the Bundeswehr minis I did in NATO 3-color.
This represents a single Armored Cavalry Squadron, which is essentially a battalion sized formation. It also highlights the difference between NATO and WARPAC formations. A WARPAC armor battalion fields between 31-40 tanks while a US Armor Battalion has 58. This group represents a post 1986 cavalry group with 3 troops of 9 Tanks and 13 M3 CFVs and 1 Armor Company.
I completed the rest of the US models in the lead pile, which provided enough Bradleys to do 1 more scout platoon and five platoons of M1s to get the start of an Armor Battalion.
I plan on doing more of an ad hoc Brigade task force for the US side with an M1 Armor Battalion, 1 of M60A3s, and at least 1 INF battalion with M113s.
