Iron Maiden covers the British Army Of the Rhine and features four different formations that you can field:
The Death or Glory Boys (or 17th/21st Lancers) bring the might of the Chieftain tank, with up to 14 per formation.
Supported by Swingfire anti-tank guided missile armed vehicles, as well as a recce troop of Scorpions, Abbot field artillery and a platoon of mechanised infantry each Chieftain Armoured Squadron is more than capable of defending the line against the Soviets.
What the tanks seize, the infantry hold. And the men of the Irish Guards are no strangers to difficult missions, having faced the Germans in World War II and now the tide of Soviets 40 years later. Each mechanised company is based around three platoons of infantry transported in FV432 personal carriers. They bring their own mortar carriers, mobile Spartan Milan launchers as well as infantry Milan teams. Like the tanks, they can expect support from Chieftains, artillery and Scimitar recce troops.
Blunting the Soviet offensive is not just about standing in front of them and that’s where the Lynx Airmobile Company of the Gordon Highlanders come in. With infantry platoons loaded up with Milan anti-tank missiles, and mounted in Lynx helicopters they can be quickly repositioned on the battlefield to strike and unguarded objectives.
Before you can fight the enemy, you must find the enemy, and the Queen’s Dragoon Guards have a mix of Scorpion and Scimitar recce vehicles to do just that. They can also count on their own Striker anti-tank guided missile vehicles and infantry platoon to help if the going gets tough.
In addition to these four formations, there are also plenty of divisional assets to destroy the enemy including attack helicopters, heavy artillery, close support aircraft and anti-aircraft batteries.
