VS United States

Brazen Capitalists advanced rapidly to surround the objective, a downed “Huey”, with tanks and infantry, and an Abrams unit across the open field cut off much chance of a flanking move on the larger mass of US forces. This unit of Abrams was also, one by one, picking off the Storm AT unit concealed by woods; the Storms in turn were failing to score any lethal hits on the Abrams. The T-72 Battalion Commander called for all units to attack the enemy head to head. All T-72 units dashed across open country to get tree lines between them and the enemy, forcing the Abrams to give up their cover in the far afield tree line to pursue. The Abrams missed with many shots, even at close range, but landed enough hits to destroy two of three T-72 companies. Third company avenged their comrades by destroying the remaining Abrams of the forward unit guarding the objective, but it was too late,… the objective could not be reached in time.

After Turn 1, Storms took a casualty from an Abrams unit far across open terrain.
After Turn 2, one Abrams destroyed; objective in sight just beyond infantry at one o'clock
Bottom of Turn 3, all T-72 units dash toward objective
Turn 4, advancing T-72s score 2 more kills; remaining Abrams is bailed.
Turn 5, T-72s take heavy losses but destroy remaining Abrams

Objective just out of reach (just beyond right edge of last photo). Infantry had survived several rounds of MG fire. Five T-72s still in the fight at the end, Battalion Commander and most of 3rd company, but only three active. Those three delivered the final fatal blow to the Abrams in the field.

    Better luck next time comrade.

    I recommend the Hinds, they are fun to play with, also you might want to take a look at the artillery discussion thread in the briefing room for ideas when using the carnations(2S1).

  • Stone says:

    Hard fight. Glad to see the NATO win with WARSAW knocking out so many successes.

  • DeltaRed58 says:

    They’ve all been tough. May be time to call for air support. I have four Hinds I could bring to the next battle, but they aren’t completely painted yet. I also have some Carnations. Maybe a thorough bombardment before advancing my tanks might be more effective.
