VS Warsaw Pact

As elements of a US light Reconnicence division moved forward to perform a dawn recon on the town of Leipzig they were surprised when the Russians had taken up forward positions further ahead than first expected. With a rolling series of booms several HMMWV’s where destroyed instantly.

Calling for support US army AH-1 cobras opened fire from their position behind the tree line targeting the T72’s that had revealed themselves in the early morning darkness. While elements of a US Mechanised company moved forwards into a position to either capture the cross roads or the fields

Warsaw Pact forces struggle to target the elements of the NATO advance but return fire knocks an unlucky cobra out of the sky. While the newly arrived Hinds miss the US Mech platoons in sheltering behind some buildings.

US forces move up the flanks with HMMWV’s and M60A3 Patton tanks and M901 ITV’s. A Stinger man pad and M163 VADS open fire and knock two hinds from the sky. With the majority of of the T72’s destroyed the Cobras concentrate fire on the distant 2S1 battery and knock two out with their TOW missiles.

BTR60’s on the hedgerow open up on the HMMWV’s oposite them and shred them to pieces and the Shilka unable to reach the cobras redirects fire into another HMMWV recon platoon and destroys them.

M60’s open up throwing shells at the Russian infantry along with supporting fire from M113’s and the M163 VAD’s who can no longer hit the out of range hinds. The Shilka also gets destroyed by a shot from the M60 Platoon leader.

Daylight begins to appear as the sun starts to rise.

Another platoon of T72’s appear on the right flank but fail to accurately target the M60’s in cover behind the bocage hedgerows. On the left flank hinds and remaining T72’s open fire on the M901 ITV’s and destroy them.

US Infantry Platoons deploy from their M113’s and lay waste to BTR60’s with support from the M60’s and then advance on the field objective and pinned down remnants of the Russian infantry platoon.

US and NATO Victory but at a heavy cost to the Light Recconacence Company.

  • CrazyIvan17 says:

    Delayed comms are to be expected in modern war.

  • bayankhan says:

    Server delay, comrades. Nice report

  • M. Nisbet says:

    They’ve only just appeared now. Very odd

  • Ben_C says:

    A fun battle with the advantage being to the US, especially in the night turns. The TI balancing out the +1 to hit caused Soviet casualties. I could have really done with that T-72 ambush being more effective!

  • Blondie says:

    There was pictures (21 to be exact) when I pressed upload.

  • M. Nisbet says:

    A good win. But no pictures? I think the US need to work on getting their Press Corps near the front lines.
