Turn One Soviets advance.
West German Pocket faces Soviet Armor

Turn One: Soviets have the initiative. I advanced my T72s in order to conduct a frontal While my BMP-2s held on the right as a fire base. My infantry moved up my left flank as a cutoff force.

During the first turn my goal was to kill the Gepards.This would allow air support could come in UN-hindered. Easy enough with 8 T 72s and 4 BMP-2s firing their missiles. Well apparently no one adjusted their sights after the road move and all shots were missed.

DEFEAT! This was a close game. It came down to a T72 company passing a morale check to end the game. They failed and since my commander was dead that was it. Had they passed I still had my frogfoots and hinds which would have taken care of the Remaining leo 1s. As well as BMP-2s and Infantry. The German player had 3Leo 1s ,infantry and a tornado left. This match was really bloody but I had fun. Hopefully next time I will bring the motherland a victory.
