Since I picked up the 6mm Israeli force a few weeks ago I’ve been looking at putting together some opposition. I’d originally thought to do Egyptians but after some initial reading I’ve decided to go for Syrians. The initial plan was to go for GHQ/CinC to match the ‘scale’ of the IDF I have but the cost of the models, and given I need a reasonable amount of them really precludes this.
Next option is to use all the left over Soviet kit I have but most of that is 80s rather than early 70s. I did pick up a batch of stuff off eBay a few weeks ago which had some T54/T55s and what I thought were BTR-60s. I decided to paint a few of these for Syrian use and only as I based them did I realise they were BTR-70s! So I’ve based one up anyway to try out some colours:
