Firestorm: Stripes

The Team Yankee Global Campaign

Nieder, Nieder, Nieder, pumpkin eater

Warsaw Pact
VS West German

I have great news of another successful Soviet action in the campaign. At D6 games in Rochester MN, we had a 3 round team yankee event where all the matches were campaign games.

Round 1, we found ourselves in the Niederbayern section, getting ready for an early morning surprise attack.

Initial recon of the area.

NATO forces were situation on the right hand side of the recon photo. They were composed mostly of Luchs, Leopard 2s, Leopard 1 HQ, and a nasty ol rocket battery as only the West Germans can do.

I decided to deploy my small company of infantry to the left guarding one objective. I did not believe that that would be an active part of the table. I decided to deploy the T-64 approximately in the center of the table behind the village and then the medium sized infantry company and BMP2 swarm on my right flank to go after the objective on my right flank.

The Leopards 2 were opposite of our own tank forces. We wanted them to commit first and then we would strike hard to counter attack.

The Leopard 1 HQ, and Rocket battery were on my left flank across from our small infantry company. If we wanted we could probably successfully push on that side as well.

Under cover of darkness, the BMP2s and medium company pushed forward as quickly as they could. Sensing that was where the attack was coming the West Germans brought over their 2 Luchs to cover the objective. Likewise the Leopard 2s also were drawn to that flank, taking out a single, BMP2.

As dawn broke, the infantry and BMP2s were on the objective. A barrage of rocket battery fire came down on them but they stood fast. A luchs was blown up and the second bailed out. Sensing a quick victory was at hand the Leopard2 hit the gas to get onto and defend the objective.

Sensing the situation the T64s moved up, taking one Leopard 2 out, and then another. Unfortunately the first set of West German reinforcements arrived, more Leopard 2s. They moved to also secure the objective.

With the BMP2s and the Leopard 2s at close range, no BMP2 missile fire but, flank shots from the BMP2 cannons saved the day as the Leopards turned to face the T-64s, allowing the BMP2s to have their opportunity to carry the day.

The victory nearly won...
As an opportunity presents itself .... The Leopard 1 HQ moves in to take advantage of the T64 flanks as their attention is elsewhere. This Leopard I would take out 2 T64s and then ....

  • Nabeshin says:

    Really digging that BMP camo paint job. Good job on the win, unfortunately Leo 2 companies aren’t very good due to their massive points cost, all that German engineering, blown to bits :'(

  • Jagdpanzer says:

    nice win well done

  • Kubikhan says:

    Good looking BMPs, agreed. Hate to see the win for the wrong side, though. Hard to tell why, as report doesn’t give much due to your opponent’s course of action.

  • Der Scholinger says:

  • recce103c says:

    Comrade liked your game mat,

    but the AAR & pictures were very basic; even the movie doesn’t help much

  • ComradeDmitri says:

    @Red Alert. – Lol, needed more smoke and fire for that Leopard!

  • CrazyIvan17 says:

  • Red Alert says:


    Comrade Dimitri your efforts for the greater good have been noted.

    Funny report though, it took me time to find what was going on in the last photo 🙂 All I saw was the Dice of Doom 🙂
