1985: Deadly Northern Lights Upgrade Kit

This kit will allow AFNORTH and Baltic / North Sea Theatre Commanders to update 1985:DNL to the Second Echelon standards. It is unfortunately available in a very limited quantity!

SITREP UPDATE 20230202 1745ZT: Well, it survived 30 minutes. I’m sorry for the ridiculously fast sequence of events.

Please be aware that:

  1. it is practically a Second Echelon unboxed version; the only missing parts are the Task Forces and Air Combat charts already fielded during the first mobilisation.
  2. The equipment will be airlifted from France. Deployment to non-European fronts can be expensive (40+ Euros).

Report to the Quarter Master here!

Die Festung Hamburg – France POMCUS Committed!

As usual, we were keeping a small strategic reserve in Europe earmarked for emergencies and counterattacks.…..Tonight, SACEUR ordered to commit a significant part of it to the front.

Please be aware that:

  1. The equipment will be airlifted from France. Deployment to non-European fronts can be expensive (40+ Euros)
  2. France POMCUS is out of Field Manuals (the 8-pages examples booklet). The original booklet is downloadable here, and to make up for its absence each box will contain one extra 98×75 cm map of NORTHAG Sector 1, useful for planning / reserve / War Room poster.

SITREP UPDATE 20230130 1531ZT: Fighting definitively stopped on the whole front. There’s no survivors.

1985:DNL First Echelon Upgrade Kit

In just three years, war has changed and become even more deadly.

Troops who started fighting the Scandinavian Campaign in the First Echelon can now increase their combat effectiveness by upgrading to the latest, more advanced equipment used by the Second Echelon forces.

NOTE: This is a free, downloadable Print-and-Play. You will need a good printer, some heavy photographic paper, and probably your local printing shop for the updated LOC map as it measures 100×60 cm.
