WWIII Team Yankee - US Tanks

 Following up from my previous post about US Mechanized forces, today's post is of my US tanks! I have enough US armor for a M60 company or an M1 Abrams company. When I first got into Team Yankee I went with the Soviets because I knew most people in my area would be building US forces, and I've never been a fan of blue on blue games. Later when the Stripes book came out and introduced the M60A3's I then jumped in. Since then I have added a Mechanized company to go along with my US Army M60A3 company, and I've finally fallen for the M1 Abrams, which had not really interested me in the past.

I really like the M60A3 tanks.

These were my first US tanks that I painted for TY.

The M60 is also a great value when making a US force.

Now with TOW II's, you can get support that can kill most things the M60's can't.

You just have to use a lot of them!

Probably my favorite US tank for my play style, the IPM1.

The gun is still the older 105mm but with better armor.

I really went all out with these!

I also have a few old M1 Abrams, just for the points.

But the IPM1's are still my main tank.

However, I couldn't help but make a few M1A2 Abrams as well!

That 120mm gun and great armor is something else.

But so are their points cost!
