Rapid Fire! 20mm Gulf War - Saladin's Division (part 6) - The Mechanized Regiment of the 6th Armoured Brigade

The second Mechanized Infantry Regiment I'm showing you now has a few differences from the first one (the Mechanized Regiment of the 12th Armoured Brigade). Again you can see three Skytrex BMP-1's but for the rest there are many differences.

The command group has a Toyota pick-up (Majorette mini), ESCI figures, including SAM-7 and a radio man from Skytrex.

Most of the figures are using the summer uniform. Some of them like the RPG-7 firer are ESCI from the Vietcong set with US M-1 helmets.

Another toy truck with another scratch built ZU-2-23mm. The figures are Atlantic.

The heavy weapons company uses ESCI and Hasegawa figures. The Milan A/T guided missile was also scratchbuilt from Evergreen plastics.

Next: the 8th Mechanized Infantry Brigade.


  1. Thanks SRD. Many small bottles of iraqi sand color from Vallejo were spent, my friend.

    1. Thanks Bluewillow. Plenty more to come. I made this stuff years ago and nowadays I'm just basing them and adding a few things here and there.

  3. Yes a lovely series. You have given me plenty of ideas for my 15mm Iraqi forces which will HAVE to be out on the table soon after seeing your fine work.

  4. Thanks Big Andy. After the 3rd AD I'll show you the 5th mechas.div. Its also a nice unit.
