Golden Journal:
May Day 2017

Several times a year, when we feel like it, the Golden Journal brings Gold Club members a set of extras for their Avalanche Press games. Our 21st issue delves into Panzer Grenadier (Modern) for the first time, with a battalion of Soviet paratroopers to battle the Israelis in the threatened but never executed intervention into the Six Day War.

The Soviet Army's 103rd Guards Airborne Division is a well-trained and well-armed outfit, in the midst of preparations for the Dnepr 1967 exercises - a complete contrast to the Arab armies the Israelis face in the standard scenarios in 1967: Sword of Israel.

The Soviet parachute battalion of 1967 is very much a light infantry outfit - air-droppable armored carriers would only start to arrive the next year, converting the airborne formations into far more capable all-arms units. To make up for that lack, the battalion wields a large number of support weapons: Sagger anti-tank missiles, heavy mortars, recoilless rifles and the diminuitive ASU-85 assault gun.

The May Day 2017 Golden Journal comes with 24 new laser-cut and mounted playing pieces representing these troops, plus a couple of new Sword of Israel scenarios for their use. We’re only printing a small number of these and when they’re gone, they’re gone forever - we don’t want to keep Journals in stock long-term.
