Arctic Tracks

To me this vehicle looks like a Soviet MTLB.

I have not been able to determine if this model is based on a real vehicle.

It too will join my group of Arctic vehicles.

Maybe they are counting polar bears, or doing astronomy in the clear air.

A pretty good vehicle I think.

Arctic Explorer

The new Arctic Thunder vehicle from Matchbox.

I got it at Walmart.

I have a small collection of Arctic vehicles and this will get added to it.

Vehicles are all over the Arctic for exploration for oil and other minerals.

So this will be one of those, likely without change.

Camp Life

Heavy machine guns.  The .30 caliber machine gun with a water cooling jacket was called a heavy machine gun because it could fire almost continuously as long as there was ammo and water.

Guard the camp.

All lined up in a military manner.

The camp, recast figures and accessories by BMC.

The recoilless rifle was explosive artillery not an armor penetrator like the bazooka.

Tenting Tonight

They are finished with the footing on my home and are working on casting the basement walls.

So without a proper barracks the troops are camping out in tents.

Field sanitation is important.  More troops are killed by disease than by the enemy.

Machine guns on the perimeter.

Recoilless rifles in the background.

Mop Up

Troops on the roof of the theater clear the bell tower.

Troops at the foot of the bell tower clear the square.

The enemy is forced back.

A few grenades and it's about done.

The few remaining aliens make their last stand, but it's over.

The Battle Continues

The troops are taking cover while the heavy weapons take their toll.

A few grenades made a difference.

Keep up the pressue.

The officer observes from the "balcony."

Troops line the roof edge to get a shot at the enemy.

Others are already close!

More Combat Action

Wave after wave of the enemy keeps coming!

Fire down on them from above.

Their bony fingers reach out to kill!

Keep firing!

Launch rockets, and throw grenades!

Troops vs Alliens

The soldiers also move to the high ground and take over the theater roof.

The officers direct the battle from up front.

Combat at close range.

A gun in each hand and blasting away with both.

 Take cover while the heavy gun blasts them!

Aliens on top of the clock tower.

Aliens at the Three Rocks.

The troops have arrived.

They are fighting the monsters in the streets.

The aliens hide on the rooftops.

Three Rocks

A strange craft lands next a Three Rocks!

Aliens!  The war in space must no have gone well.

They climb to the high ground.

Even on top of the clock tower.

They are a formidable foe.
