Firestorm: Stripes

The Team Yankee Global Campaign

Rearguard Surprise

Warsaw Pact
VS British
General Darcy

Surprise opportunity

In the aftermath of General Leadgend's battle against General POTUS ( https://firestormstripes.warconsole.com/battles/leadgend-vs-general-potus-1522114138 ) a set of NATO codebooks were found in the destroyed US HQ and the surrendering americans revealed they were to be withdrawn soon, meeting up with British under General Darcy at a refuelling depot on the Austrian border. There was no time to lose. Sending a message to General Darcy that the US were on their way General Leadgend sent his forces dashing down the road westwards.

Caught in the open!

General Darcy had deployed the British on either side of the fuel depot with scattered mines in front. General Leadgend deployed missile launchers to clear the British tanks and surged forward with the tanks in the centre and infantry on the right.

The British tanks quickly succumbed to the rain of missiles while the Czech tanks pushed forward up the road and Shilka AA tanks hosed the British infantry positions with accurate cannon fire.

British infantry fired back at the Shilkas with milans and rocket launchers and with support from swingfires and the remaining tanks managed to destroy them but by then the Czech tanks and infantry were well into the British positions.


With their tanks gone, their AA heading for the hills and their infantry rapidly disappearing under a withering fire from the advancing Czechs General Darcy raised a white flag and surrendered! Victory was ours!

Battle Notes

This battle was in round 4 of the Victorian Team Yankee championship at Conquest Games Convention ( conquest.asn.au ). I was running the tournament and as there was an even number of players wasn't getting to play, however General POTUS had to leave and couldn't make it back in time for the next round so I played his opponent General Darcy so he would get a game.

    Is this 1989? There was only one Canadian Division in 1985, my friend. Who is writing the fiction?

    Good report, by the way

  • Leadgend says:

    Klute it was an older code but it checked out. 🙂
    Nisbet, in our paper Stripes campaign at the Monday Knights club there has been a massive breakthrough on the southern front with Munich etc falling to a rapid advance by the Pact. Also this battle put Neiderbayern back into Pact control in the online campaign.

  • Klute says:

    I ensure all US Commanders leave decoy NATO Code Books behind after a great victory. We have about 12 of them. My favorite one is the Spearhead MulHouse…. The 4th Canadian Division have been amazing to work side by side with. 🙂

    Great Battle Report and thanks for sharing.

    Thank you also for taking the time to run Tournaments. This takes a lot of effort, time and commitment.


  • M. Nisbet says:

    Writing can fictions now? The US forces are standing strong in Niederbayern, along with the 4th Canadian Division. But I suppose whatever makes good articles for Pravda.

    ((A well written report, well done))
