Main Battle Tanks
APCs & IFVs
Artillery and Air Defense
Helicopters and Aircraft
Light Vehicles And Miscellaneous Units
Infantry and Full Units
For 21st century models, mainly those used in Iraq and Afghanistan, please see the the US Army in the 21st Century page.
Full US Units
GHQ's modern US heavy weapons and infantry are excellent, far better than every other manufacturers. They are a bit large in scale, but it allows sufficient detail in the models and makes them paintable.
Infantry and Command
Forward Observer and Stinger
Custom Built Units
I needed 81mm Mortar and M2HB units, so I decided to build them from GHQ modern US heavy weapons teams. The HMG team came out great, and uses the CinC M2HB. However, the mortar, made with a length of plastic, was not a success. Still, they'll suffice.
GHQ Vietnam-Era Infantry
I'm using these models to represent US Army National Guard infantry
The two Vietnam-era infantry packs are are in some ways better than their modern US counter parts -- there is a wider variety of poses in the infantry packs, and a good selection of weapons in the heavy weapons pack -- 81mm & 107mm mortars, 90mm RR gunners, M60 gunners, infantry with shotguns (might be 40mm grenade launchers?), mortar crew, commanders, radio men, etc. More to follow.
