Bofors 40mm Anti-Aircraft Gun

The Bofors is a great AA gun, except for its one major flaw- Its not mobile. It seems everyone else gets good mobile AA in Mid-War, but the Brits are stuck with these in most lists. It has a good range, anti-tank rating, rate of fire, and firepower. Its even pretty cheap. However not being…

 

M7 Priest Artillery

The priest is another one of those units that never really found a permanent home in my army lists. It hits reasonably hard, doubles as a tank destroyer in Mid-war, and still can bombard while pinned. However the points cost for a battery of 8 is pretty rough in Mid-War. I haven’t played them a…

 

OQF 6pdr Portee

The 6lb portee is a bit of a tricky animal. They have great punching power for Mid-War but are pretty much the definition of a glass cannon. In ambush they’re great with their high rate of fire. They can get around the battlefield quickly to support the flank that needs help. However they also drop…

 

Dorchester AEC ACV

The Dorchester ACV is a really odd duck mini. I got it as a birthday gift long ago, but I’ve never had it on the table. I don’t think I’ve ever been able to find any rules to use it in Flames of War. I assumed it was old stock from v1, but apparently they…

 

M3 Grant Tank

The Grant tank is a bit of an odd tank, both in real life and in Flames of War. It was built as a stop gap measure while the Sherman was finalizing design. It has a 75mm sponson mounted gun and a 37mm turret mounted gun. It is one of the very few tanks in…

 

British ML 4.2″ Mortars

The 4.2″ mortar was my go-to artillery weapon for a little while. They pack a pretty good punch vs dug-in infantry, have just enough AT to make tanks wary and enough range to cover most of the board without explosing themselves too badly. Best of all they can still throw smoke bombardments and are cheaper than 25pdr…

 

M10 ‘Wolverine’ Tank Destroyers

The M10 tank destroyer was the answer to my disappointment in the OQF 17pdr. I bought these for use in Mid-war, but they’re painted green since they would have mainly seen use in Tunisia and Italy. The M10 and M10c are quite a potent force in Mid War, being able to knock out just about…

 

Crusader Tank

The Crusader tank has to be one of my favorite British tanks- at least visually. It is iconic for the desert way and just generally look funky. It is a real shame it has never been a viable tank for use in Flames of war. In Mid-War it simply is too under-powered. Everything can penetrate…

 

Valentine Tank

The Valentine tank has to be one of my least used units. It seems in nearly every situation there is another tank thank accomplishes what it does better. Its slow, has a bad gun, and rather mediocre armor. However I haven’t played much early war where it might have a chance to shine. I think I’ve fielded…

 

Churchill Mk IV Tank

  These Churchill tanks have to be one of the most often used tanks I own yet sadly on of the worst jobs I’ve done on armor. The treads are on backwards for example. I had no idea back then, but they fit better that way and I assumed it was the correct way. The camouflage is…
