United States

Solo Mio!

“Colonel Attwood, I need your boys at Leipzig!” snapped General Bryant. The Russkies are throwing everything they have at us to stop us from going into Berlin! Your job, Colonel is to stop them dead in their tracks, got it? “Yes sir.” Attwood left Bryant headquarters wondering which company commander he was going to tap for this job.
“Have a seat, Captain.” The Captain sat down wondering what the next job was going to be. “You know the Russians are hitting us hard to prevent us from getting Berlin.”
The Captain nodded. “Your company is going to hold the line at the town of Torgau. There is a lot of woods and rivers there so you should be able to do this.” “Colonel, I need protection from the air and the VADS just cannot cover every square inch of the sector.”
Attwood smiled. “I am having a unit of Chaparrals coming up your way now. These boys are fresh off the transport plane, but they know what they are doing. You just keep them protected , got it?” “Yes, sir.” As the Captain turned to leave the Attwood spoke, “Captain, this is a no retreat situation. Under no circumstances are you to retreat, understood?” “Yes, sir.” The Captain left the HQ to go back to his company.

Russian Turn 1
Both T-72 tank companies moved out. The left company made slow progress as some of the tanks failed their cross checks. Shots were fired at the M1 platoon in the woods near the river with no effect. The right company proceeded down the road fired at the other M1 platoon in the wheat field and missed. The Hinds came toward the forest where the Mech platoon dug in. The Chaparrals responded, hitting the Hinds, one of them went down.

Ready! Set! Go!
BMPs move out!

Russian Turn 2
Before the Hinds could say or do anything, the Chaparrals fired, hit and did not down them, but the .50 cal MGs on the M113s did! No more Hinds to worry about! BMPs are moving forward. The right and left companies moved forward shooting at the M1s but to no avail.
