Intel from our German allies indicated a Russian move on Gelsenkirchen. To forestall this, elements of RCT Everly were ordered to take the town and hold it against all comers.
The Americans moved into the town and began to establish defensive positions. Then it dawned on them they had almost no AA assets. Like bringing a knife to a gun fight.
With the AA assets gone, the Soviets took out our M 109 battery and landed troops to move onto the far objective. Once they were on the ground though, we were in our element and destroyed 4 Hinds and most of their troops. His dice were pretty bad.
Then another Air Assault Company landed on the other side of the table. Just where would my reserves go? Especially with Hinds hovering like hawks waiting for something to move into the open.
