C Squadron, 17th/21st Lancers, and the Irish Guardsmen supporting them made their last-minute preparations, each man checking his weapons one more time and going through the little rituals that had become talismans against violent death.
After days of hard fighting, they were worn and frayed, no longer so eager to test themselves in battle. Their expressions were grim and hard. The coming battle was not going to be easy.
The Chieftain has a simple job in Team Yankee: find a good firing position and destroy everything that comes in front of it. With its heavy armour and 120mm gun, there are few tanks that want to engage it in a stand-up fight.
The TOW Lynx mounts the US Improved TOW anti-tank missile for the HELARM (Helicopter, Armed) operations. The Lynx is fast and aerobatic, making it ideal for the anti-tank role as it can fly below tree-top level to sneak into position, then pop up using its roof-mounted sights to acquire targets and destroy them with its missiles. Once done, the helicopter quickly repositions to avoid unwanted attention from Soviet air-defence vehicles.
Artillery Bombardments in Team Yankee use a Template to show the area being bombarded. There are two sizes of template: Artillery (6"15cm square) and Salvo (10"/25cm square) depending on the ROF of the weapons firing. The printed template in Charlies Chieftains is designed to give you two sizes of template in one.
