Gents,
Any suggestions for what to use for a set of Modern US infantry with a ground surveillance radar in 6MM? Suitable for the 1980s.

What is the nomenclature for the radar that you are trying to model? I ask because I don't know anything about radars and I would like to look it up. From a generic search it looks like a tripod with a small flat radar screen on top?

Redleg,
I'm afraid that I do not know. I'm converting rules systems to the modern adaption of the Battlefront WWII rules and one of the unit cards for American Mechanized Infantry is a ground surveillance radar. No picture of it on the card. To be honest I had never heard of the system at all before these rules. In the Marines we were not so high tech in the 80s:)

Take a look at the GHQ forum where you posted the same question. We found a pic of the AN/PPS-5 and it looks like some of the guys on there have experience with it. It should be easy to scratch build with some brass rod and a piece of styrene.
