Kostrad is the strategic reserve formation of the Indonesian army, typically receiving the best troops and equipment. Today our 15mm Indonesians receive the first deliveries of a new series of grav vehicles, matching the 6mm versions that came out some time ago.
Heavy armoured firepower comes in the form of the Suharto and Anjalika MBTs. Very similar in design, the Anjalika has a modified turret with a more powerful main gun. Usually one Anjalika is allocated to each platoon, but in some formations they are concentrated into separate heavy platoons.
The infantry ride in Sugama APCs. These are large battle taxis, armed only with a heavy 14.5mm gauss gun in a remote roof mount.
Bhima grav armoured cars perform the reconnaissance function, but carry sufficient firepower to act as tanks in light armoured units.
The final vehicle in this release is the Kijang grav truck. Armoured to APC standards and equipped with the same weapon as the Sugama, the Kijang provides logistic support right up to the front line, and some territorial formations use them as infantry carriers.
We’ll have stocks of all of these vehicles at Colours tomorrow, along with all of our other 15mm models.
