Sounds like an interesting matchup.

Thanks for sharing.

I was unaware of this little conflict. Seems like a good way to get some early Cold War armor, and ubiquitous WWII armor into battle against one another.

I think I'll give that a try with 1/144th scale minis.

I ran across this, while looking up more info about the conflict:

Cypriots had the ex-Soviet, and some British vehicles - T-34/85s, BTR-152V1s, etc..

Turks were using US armor - M47s and M48 tanks, and M113 APCs.

There's also this, showing losses for both sides:
