AK47 Summer Offensive 
I've been thinking about what to do for the Professional unit in the Ltumtu army. I was planning to use figures with helmets to represent the Professionals but have decided that I'd be better off saving these for another army. I have quite a lot of them and, given that I can only field one unit, it seems a better idea to use them as Regulars in a Peoples Popular Front or Superpower Backed force instead.
The alternative is to use figures with berets and soviet kit, which is what I was planning to do in the first place. I don't have many crew figures but I do have plenty of small arms, a few RPG's and even some AAA launchers, so they should look the part. They're going to have the option of heliborne insertion as well, complete with a fleet of Mil MI4 transport choppers, so the berets are entirely appropriate for airborne troops:
Unfortunately, I've left them at home, so the Professional heliborne cadre will have to wait until the end of the month when I get back.
