Soviet BA-10
 
Heavy Armoured Car
 
 The BA-10 (Broneavtomobil 10) was an armored car developed in the Soviet Union in 1938 and produced until 1941.  It was the most produced Soviet pre-1941 heavy armored car – With 3,311 built in three versions.  These were the BA-10, the BA-10M (improved version with new radio), and the BA-10ZhD (equipped for dual railway/road use).  The basic BA-10 design was developed from the BA-3 and BA-6 heavy armored cars.  It had an improved GAZ-AAA chassis and improved armor.  Like its predecessors, the BA-10 could be converted to a half-track by fitting auxiliary tracks to the rear pair of dual tandem wheels.  These tracks were often fitted when the vehicle needed to move across snow or soft ground.
 
 The BA-10 first saw action against the Japanese in Manchuria at the Battle of Khalkhin Gol in 1939.  Some were captured and later used by the Manchukuo.  It was involved in all the Soviet Union’s subsequent military operations and campaigns of 1939-1940.  During World War II the BA-10 was used against the Germans on the Eastern Front, but was rarely seen after the winter of 1941–42.  Later in the war the heavy scouting role was taken over by light tanks such as the T-60 and T-70.  A few BA-10s were seen as late as 1943 on the Leningrad front.  Large numbers of captured BA-10s were used by Axis powers in Europe.  In May 1945 a few BA-10s of ROA fought alongside the defenders of the Prague uprising.  The BA-10 was in Red Army service until 1945.

  • British Commando Characters

    Lord Lovat was one of those characters you couldn’t make up. Tall, handsome and brave, he was born to the task of command, being in fact a Highland Laird. It was Lord Lovat who famously fought his way in land on D-Day to cross the bridges held by the British Paras, carrying a rifle, accompanied by his faithful bagpiper Millin! 

    Millin was banned from playing when under fire by the English War office but Lovat claimed that it clearly could not apply in this case as they were Scottish! Millin survived cold water and enemy bullets, causing consternation and surprise wherever he went, some think he was not shot at by the Germans as they thought he was clearly insane!

    It would seem that Millin came ashore in Kilt but discarded it inland, so we have included both leg variants for Troowsers and full Kilt. 

    Finally is the extraordinary maverick Brigadier Peter Young. Amongst Britain's most interesting and most decorated soldiers, ”The Brig” was legendary in the Commandos. His troop was the only one to fully succeed at the disaster of Dieppe. Charismatic and intelligent, he was quite the pirate, but his men would go to extreme lengths to never let him down. We have him portrayed here with his trusty (borrowed) Garand and cane. After the war he went on to be a top historian and write a best selling book about war gaming!
