T54's rolling into West Germany, circa 1985Well for anyone who has been living under a rock, Battlefront has recently released one of the most iconic Soviet Cold War tank, the T-54 (aka North Vietnamese K-2) As a Canadian, I may not have as much interest in the Vietnam conflict, however this is a kit that can be used for a variety of eras, not just Vietnam. But lets look at the models themselves first shall we?
The front and rear trackguards align perfectly (fuel tanks added)
T-54's lie in ambush, waiting for Canadian Leopard C1s to counter-attack

Side-by-side comparison. In real life, only the smallest folks could cram into a T-54
Overall, I give this box-set 9 swigs of Vodka out of 10, the addition of the fuel tanks would have made this a ten in my books. A must-have if you are going to be doing any sort of Cold War era gaming as the 'Red Team'. Dos Vidanya!
