GI Joe & Dimetrodon
MRS Bunkermeister and I visited the Dinosaur World park in Cave City, KY, with a few GI Joes.
Dimetrodon approaches GI Joe.
GI Joe manages to step aside as the dimetrodon walks past.
It takes a long time for this carnivore to walk past.
GI Joe watching carefully.
Gotta watch out for the tail.
GI Joe has a pith helmet and a bolt action rifle.
Not much against a dimetrodon.

GI Joe is exploring.
Looking in the forest for unusual wildlife.
He found some.
His rifle seems puny.
He is ready, none the less.
They are not too aggressive.
Time to move on.

When I saw these on line, I was worried that they were too tall. Here with a 60mm MPC ring hand figure.
They are a bit smaller than I thought, here the active MOFOS female with a more sedate Mrs. Kennedy.
General Patton likes a good shot group. Marx 60mm general.
Lido / Tootsietoy / BMC figure with handgun.
MPC walking man in 60mm.
The group pose.
The set comes with 5 black and 5 white figures; one in each pose.
The seller included a bonus grey figure, very nice.

This guy looked to me like Daft Punk in the Tron remake.
Two handguns and a helmet.
Ski mask and a broom handle Mauser.
He also has a small rod in his left hand, could be anything from a rolled up piece of paper to a pipe.
Five poses in the set, this one is the only female.
This is also the only figure with an edged weapon.

Sometimes the neighbors bull escapes and wanders over to our yard. Today there were two. I waited until the owner came by and rounded them up before I went outside to take photos.
MOFOS are some troops I saw online recently.
The scale listed was a bit iffy but I took a chance with them.
The kneeling guy has a pretty nice sniper rifle.
These figures seem to come in several parts and have great detail.
Walking man with sunglasses and pistol with silencer.
A very good figure, I think.

Tank Infantry Teams in the Attack
Tanks and infantry cover one another in the approach to the built up area.
Infantry ahead, beside and the behind the tank watch for enemy infantry and anti-tank weapons. Don't stand directly in front of the friendly tank in case it fires it's machine gun or main cannon.
Infantry can use grenades to clear a room.
Officers should lead from the front so they can respond to a changing circumstance.
Tanks should be deployed in depth to maintain momentum when one is disabled.

Russian Tanks in the City
When assaulting a built up area, tank & infantry cooperation is essential.
The tanks need the eyes of the infantry.
The infantry need the firepower of the tanks.
The infantry need plenty of submachine guns and grenades.
The tanks are vulnerable on their own.
