A hard fought battle having NATO hold fast and win the day!
We both have never played a 50pt game before so this one was only the second of two. This battle was tough! The Soviets could have won it as early as turn 2 if air support hadn't shown up to clear the objective. Even moreso the Leopards in Ambush were the real heroes not only finishing off the T-72 push into the far objective but also seizing the objective at the end of the day. The Soviet smokescreen was cleverly deployed and caused a pinch of worry until the NATO units were able to roll up and start the hammer. Flanking the Soviet forces and hitting them on all sides really made the game itself rather quick. This whole game boiled down to fistful of shots that could have saved it but in the end, the Red gunners just couldn't lock the West Germans down. The day was won by sheer mobile forces and some very lucky dice rolls.
Soviet Commander after second battle and poor luck!
