21st Century US Military

This page focuses primarily on post-Cold War US units, primary Army, with a focus on the wars in Middle East.  In general, if you don't see it here, it is probably on the other US modern page (this is particularly true with both fixed- and rotor-wing aircraft)

Main Battle Tanks

GHQ M1A2
Post-Cold War version of the Abrams, an excellent model from GHQ.  This one has a GHQ mine plow mounted and GHQ's NATO chevron decals.


Same model in desert colors (and, amazingly enough, both machine guns)


GHQ M1A2







GHQ M1A2 Abrams TUSK
GHQs excellent new model of the recent M1A2 with the Tank Urban Survival Kit




CinC M1A2
A good model, particularly as it comes with the option of including both a commander and a loader manning their machine guns.  Baggage is made with bake-hard clay.






Another version...




M1A1
GHQ Model


M1A1
CinC Model







APCs & IFVs

M2A3
Recent model from GHQ, and a fine one.  I've added a fair bit of baggage sculpted out of clay.








More versions, in a slightly lighter color




Stryker APC
Part of the recent GHQ Stryker Range.  A fine set of models of the modern US APC widely used in Iraq.




Another Version, with the headlights painted (though not always well...)






Stryker Command Version
Needs to have aerials added




Stryker Mortar Carrier





Stryker Assault Gun




Another Version
This version is done with a more "flat" paint scheme.  I also tried to paint more details, but still missed the shovels.




Stryker Cavalry Vehicle




More Versions






Alternate Versions Of The Stryker

Purely hypothetical, using spare hulls and turrets I had lying around








M-ATV
Terror War model from GHQ -- a fine model


Cougar 6x6
Another Terror War model from GHQ






Cougar 4x4
Four-whelel version of the above model






Helicopters



Fixed-Wing Aircraft

YF-23
A resin model of the prototype that lost to the F-22 from GameCraft Miniatures.


MQ-9 Reaper
Shapeways model.  I should have added ordnance, but there you go.




Engineering Vehicles

M1 Assault Breacher
New model from GHQ, comes with two types of plows










M104 Wolverine Bridgelayer
GHQ Model






Buffalo EOD
Explosive removal vehicle from GHQ -- a really impresive model.  A big model, and very impressive looking.  There was one outside Fed-Ex field in 2011 when I took my boy to see the Patriots play the Redskins.




Stryker ESV
The mine plow is extremely well detailed, but somewhat fragile.






M728 AEV
GHQ Model


M105 Deuce

A new model from GHQ



Artillery

M109A6 Paladin
A fine GHQ model with added baggage










GHQ MLRS


HIMARS
New GHQ models -- very cool








M777 With FMTV Prime Mover
Modern 155mm gun from GHQ, along with its regular prime mover.  Crews are from GHQ.






GHQ M106 In Desert Colors



Air Defense Systems

M7 Linebacker

GHQ Model




M163
GHQ model


Patriot Launcher
A fine model from GameCraft Miniatures.  Now just waiting for them to release the radar unit...




This is with a GHQ prime mover modified...




HEMTT A3 Centurion Phalanx
A very cool model from Masters of Military


HEMTT L3 AHS HE Laser
Not really an anti-air vehicle, but a cool model from Masters of Military nonetheless.






Miscellaneous Vehicles

M577
CinC model in desert colors



M88A1
Rehabbed GHQ Model


HETS M1070 with M1000 Trailer
A fine model from Shapeways, designed by Masters of Military.  Truly rivals the best put out by any traditional manufacturer.






This is the Gamecraft Miniatures version of the same model. Equally good, but significantly cheaper.

This is the GHQ version of the gun truck -- an excellent model, but includes no crew members.
