|The base on the vehicle helps it fit a little better with the infantry...you can see the very slight bend in the base on the tank....|
|Infantry from Peter Pig|
The infantry are Peter Pig troops from their "Professionals" selection in their modern range. These were test models, so they are not meant to represent a specific squad and there is a mish-mash of weapons - several RPD MGs, a couple of officers and a couple of guys with RPGs. I don't believe Syrian infantry sections were that heavily armed...
|An RPG, some AK-47s and an RPD|
It is hard to see in these terrible pictures, but the infantry have khaki pants and green jackets with camouflage splotches applied to both. It is almost impossible to find a colour reference of a Syrian infantryman from the 1973 war - the Osprey book does not have one, and I have never seen one on the Internet. So I just bodged from pictures of their uniforms used in Lebanon (would they have been that different? Probably not, I hope...).
At some point I might do some infantry based in groups (as seen in games such as "Flames of War") but I really like the individual look of the infantry in this scale, so I will stick with it and see how it goes.
