WEST GERMAN - 3 (GE) Reconnaissance Battalion
I am working on the NATO Covering Force minus the 2 (US) Armoured Division (Fwd) which Andy Hamilton is doing. The main force for this is the Dutch 41 Armoured Brigade but attached to this Brigade was also the Dutch 103 Reconnaissance Battalion and the 3 (GE) Reconnaissance Battalion. Each Company consists of a Fuchs TPZ, a Luchs and two Leopard 1 tanks. I just have three infantry bases to do to mount in the Fuchs TPZ's. HQ is a Fuchs TPZ and a M577. As we are using the Recce Support House Rules I decided to base my Recce Support on different bases. After a discussion with Leon at Minibits he sorted out some 40mm x 20mm MDF bases with a point at the front for me so all my Recce Support units will be based like this. Easy way to remember their unit type.
