West German
Oberst Hunts
VS West German

We did not originally plan to file a report but since we have no WP forces playing I will try and construct the battle report even though we took no pictures. The battlefield was made up of rolling hills and small sections of woods miles away from any of the villages. The enemy took the field and placed his artillery hidden behind some woods on one end and his Helos behind some woods on the other flank of the battlefield. In the center were his Mech infantry and Gepards with his Luchs moving onto the southern flank. Our forces spearheaded forward in the center and north and took as much of the terrain that was possible to deny terrain to the enemy mech forces. Our infantry held an objective in the south while out tanks maneuvered into the center of the battlefield. Our Jaguar 2s positioned in the north to deny two avenues of approach to the enemy.

Turn One was a little slow as each side maneuvered a little to get better positions and avoid being pounded by each others missiles. My Marders pushed south to try and flank the enemy and make a run toward his hiding helos in hopes of getting some shots at them. Of course, the Luftwaffe failed to show up, and would not arrive until turn Eight.

Turns Two though Seven are a blur as we spent much time discussing tactics and capabilities against WP tanks and hoards as we were taking pot shots at each other. I lost a couple tanks but the remainder were highly motivated and stayed on the battle field. It was in turn Four that my Marders made it behind the enemy and got some shots at his helicopters, killing two of them. That was a first for me killing helos with non-ADA assets.

Turn Seven resulted in my forces pushing forward and attacking his mech forces on the objectives and finally killing enough of them to take one of the objectives.

Turn Eight and it was over with a tough fought battle on both sides. Southern West German forces pulled out the win.

    congrats on the win! good work on the training scenario, god practice for when you face the red menace!!!

  • Nabeshin says:

    I know you never planned on reporting, but consider that, since we’re pretty low in numbers, our forte should be report quality > wins. Quality will be the calling card of the West German report, my friend 😉

  • Stone says:

    A good training mission allowing for trial of many different tools. Greatly appreciated the instruction.

  • CrazyIvan17 says:

    Truth. That’s what I get for reading too fast, too early in the AM on a school day. I hope you’re able to get a game in with some more of the Haven gang soon!

  • Oberst Hunts says:

    As I mentioned from the start, we did not originally plan to file a report so there were no photos. There are normally many, almost too many photos and it certainly detracts from the gaming experience.

  • Kubikhan says:

    A win is a win! We West Germans need them, so congrats Oberst!

  • CrazyIvan17 says:

    As for the lack of Red players, I’d love to help out and give you some T-64s to schwack, but alas I am unable to assist.

  • CrazyIvan17 says:

    A nice summation of the game, but I’ll echo that some photos or some maps would greatly help.

  • Victor says:

    I hope you will give us more details and pictures next time 🙂

    About the “Blue on Blue” or “Red on Red” To Quote Phil at Battlefront: “They are treated as two battle reports for the same side. There’s a bit more behind the scenes to balance things out, but that’s the basics of it.”

  • Storm Caller says:


    Many Group are having the same challenge. Here is how my group deals with it

    1). As example Red1 on a Red2 (our challenge) situation: Red2 is selected to represent Blue. If Red2 win , He fills the report with a Blue team member for the win and to keep the points correct for the stragetic game. The Red1 player would fille the report as normal a lose. If Red1 win then Red2 would file a lose report. It’s work for us because we rotate who have to present the opposing force.

    2). Set up a Blue and Red accounts for the sole purpose of filing opposing force

    My recommendation is just clearly state who is who in the initial text block


  • General POTUS says:

    No WarPac players available? We had this in our Red Thunder campaign. Keep the training missions coming

  • bayankhan says:
