Re: Converting some guys from FoW to IABSM!

It's okay: I have a SiG 33B in my collection (only 24 ever built) and three Pumas (only 101 ever built).

The SiG 33B must be close to the top of the charts in terms of ratio between models sold to wargamers versus actual vehicles ever built!

Re: Zis-30

I think you're thinking of the IABSM Blenneville or Bust! Avaux scenario AARs on Vis Lardica. There's a nasty off-table 88 that does exactly that.

Yes, I agree.

Even in IABSM, with its larger ground scale, I usually use the German 88 as an off-table weapon, firing along a particular axis.
