Also in the 1977 Matchbox Kit Catalogue was the Counter Attack Playset, which, to all intents and purposes, was aimed directly at the Airfix Combat packs then available. "Counter Attack" - mmmm?
The set came with a base board for setting everything up, instruction sheet, a main shelled-out building, a sentry tower, various other battlefield parts, an American Greyhound Armoured Car, two air-pump-powered weapons/grappling hook and a suction-powered land mine. Last, but not least, were a set each of American and German Infantry. I seem to remember that they did not come boxed but rather bagged in this set. The pictures below show my own personal additions to the set here.
