VS United States

Ordered by High Command the 18th Guards Motor Rifle Regiment sent a Tank Battalion supported by a BTR Battalion to Leipzig to stop the NATO advance. They took up position along the Route 87 in vicinity of Altranstadt. The Motorised troops occupied a small township while the tanks secured the woods to the north. The enemy were sighted just before last light and the tanks and artillery engaged them destroying several vehicles. However after a valiant effort by the tanks that were destroyed the position became untenable and as darkness fell the surviving troops withdrew.

    Unlucky on the loss! :'( I’m sure your comrades have made you aware, but high detail battle reports can really turn the tide of the campaign! 🙂

    Looks like fun. If you need help in how to write up the reports, see Red Alert’s advice in our sides forum

    Nice battlefield, weak report…and it looks like this should be linked with the battle reported earlier by thommo1137. If you actually played 2 battles on the same tabletop switching sides, help us out by saying so in the words someplace. Otherwise it messes up the VP scores. Just saying….

    To link, email/text your code in your report. It comes up in the bottom of report after you publish. You get extra VPfor the link
