MBT Flats: BAOR Forces

Watermarked PDF

Have you sometimes thought about jumping into the exciting world of Cold War era miniatures, but haven't because of limited time, resources, or lack of interest in painting an entire US, Soviet, West German or British division, brigade or regiment. How about all those interesting tanks you would like to field, but can't find the miniatures?
Then MBT Flats are the answer for you! These unique 2D paper miniatures are full-color, highly detailed, individually numbered, scaled for 1/285 and 1/300 play, and are set and ready for play. All you need to do is print and mount the sheets and cut out the various vehicles, aircraft and infantry. You can easily set up a battle in less than a few hours - in far less time (and with a lot less money out of your pocket!) than it would take to purchase and paint a similarly size force of miniatures.
All units are mounted on a common neutral base/background. All of the various combat units from the Challenger 1 to the Lynx AH.1 are represented. These are not generic images of vehicles and aircraft, but the real units. Each 8.5 x 11 page contains 1.7 x .7 inch (42mm x 17mm) vehicle units, 1.7 x 1.3 inch (42mm x 34mm) fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters, and .3 x .8 (8mm x 21mm) turrets.

The infantry includes 1 x .5 inch (25mm x 13mm) half- squad-sized units and .5 x .5 inch (13mm x 13mm) section-sized units.
Created for the MBT board game (set in 1987), MBT Flats’ common design with only a name, numerical ID, and national symbol makes them ideally suited for any game or set of rules. Your options are endless (and economical!) to build up your forces and jump into a whole new world of gaming fun!

I bought the WW2 versions but was kinda disappointed as they didn't look so good printed, as they were just compressed images.

Are these the same way, or are they vector art that can be printed at larger sizes and still look good?

What are you looking for beyond the Soviet Forces flats?

Any plans to scale these to 1:100/15mm? Or should we just do that ourselves?

If there is enough demand, that scale could be released. It will require all new sheets and layout.

With Team Yankee coming out, I'd expect at least at the initial release for US and Soviet forces to be in demand at 1:100.

For 15mm, that would leave enough room for 8 flats per 8.5 x 11 sheet. That would require a ton of sheets if each flat were numbered. Unnumbered would require just a single sheet for each individual unit type. That would mean about 20 pages for the USA and about 30 pages for the Soviets. In addition, I don't have 15mm infantry. So, those units wouldn't be included.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
