There are two types of forward observers in Bolt Action, the Artillery Forward Observers (AFOs) and the Air Force Forward Observers (AFFOs). The Soviets have an interesting army special rule in Bolt Action, the "Massed Batteries", to represent the Red Army artillery barrages, which were truly terrifying.

I really like the British Bren Universal Carriers light armoured tracked vehicles. I chose the Warlord Games' Red Army version for my Bolt Action games when I bought two of them. During WWII the Soviet Union received around 2.700 such Lend & Lease vehicles.

A zaichata squad in Bolt Action consists of two inexperienced snipers, nicknamed зайчата (young hare) and a master sniper, who tried to teach them the skills in order to survive as a sniper. Many zaichata didn't and perished within their first weeks of combat.
I had a sniper from the "Red Army" box of 23 metal miniatures and the free miniature of "Campaign Stalingrand" book, both products of Warlord Games and four Soviet snipers of Black Tree Design.
I used all six of them to build two zaichata squads. I chose again the "amoeba" camo as I did for my assault engineers. Below you can see the result.
