News: AVG Armour Goes in Action

15th February 1989: Sky News reported that American Volunteer Group armoured units had engaged Republican and German 'mercenary' units near Mansfield. General Munnery at GHQ stated that "superior American tanks had smashed the communists attempts to invade the heartland of the Royalist north of England".

In reality, whilst AVG M1's had engaged Republican forces, they were of limited numbers and had only achieved local success. However the escalation of the Civil War to now include American land forces was greeted with concern by both the Republican government in London and by Moscow.
