Manoeuvre Group – Red Storm Cold War 1986 to 1990 Lists 21 to 26


Manoeuvre Group – Red Storm Cold War 1986 to 1990 Lists 21 to 26 This is the newest army list release by Manoeuvre Group . It covers the cold war protagonists from 1986 to 1990. It’s early days and the kit is less sophisticated. It covers Russian Tank and Motor Rifle divisions, British Armoured Division, US Heavy Division and German Panzer and Panzer Grenadier Divisions. The lists are unique in that they define the organisations in peacetime and when split into their warfighting task groups. We have improved the format to make it easier to quickly go between the Peacetime TOE and the warfighting organisation. As always they cover all the logistics elements and indicate the roles the units take on in a shooting war. This is vital information for those wanting to run a coherent and realistic campaign stretching beyond a single encounter. Although Manoeuvre Group itself is a set of rules for platoon up to a company task group and beyond, if infantry fighting is very restricted, the divisional organisations are there to make scenario writing easier. They detail the higher level assets that can be deployed in support of a company task group. In addition, many reconnaissance assets are held at divisional level and it is these units that would form blocking forces to slow down attackers while the defenders call up re-enforcements and fully deploy to take-on an aggressor. Therefore the lists enable to players to widen their horizons in terms of scenarios they can set up and explore. If you want to attack a Battalion HQ with specialist forces, you know what the battalion HQ consists of. For Manoeuvre Group players, full vehicle and weapon specifications are included on separate pages including organic heliborne assets. For non-Manoeuvre Group players, the vehicle specifications are defined in such a way that the armour values can converted back to basic values for use other rules.

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.
