Fighting a rural battle of the out skirts of build up city of Amsterdam. Position TF Nutcracker along major road network with Dutch low country on both sides. forward MECH PLT had placed mines on the road to channel the East German BMP threat to maneuver into Kill Sack 1 to our Right flank and Kill Sack 2 on our Left Flank. As such the DDR began probing us in the hours of darkness.
Turn 1 our forces were on order to hold tight on engaging targets until fired upon.
Once the battle was on, British forces fired at known threat targets during turn2. Hind Helicopters probe my right flank over watch HQ unit, and Mortar Platoon section, our defensive fire was good and destroyed one hind.
No reserves on turn 3 and 4. Daylight arrived and to our surprise it had to a Brigade to our front. Stress of war can make you count larger numbers than it is actually. The enemy was blocked on the left when I smartly deployed my MCT Spartan section in the ambush and destroyed 3 BMPs and 2 Milan sections had 2 more confirmed kills and one bailed out. The enemy got the courage to fight until my mortar section ranged in on the left flank and they started to dig holes in mud. The BMP threaten the forward right infantry section whom keep the weapons on safe until the BMPs was on top of them and stopped the enemy cold in the assault. The enemy paused and must have regroup for another fight.
Tom and I put a 2 1/2 hour limit. He wasn’t bad off for he only lost his hinds.
I didnt get any reserves but my next choice would of been the chieftains. Overall good game I will change out my M109 artillery for swingfires.
