  1. I enjoyed this scenario. Very nice experience in real time. I liked the fact of not disclosing the objectives. I even truned off objectives on map. If one knows what to do in defence, it is quite easy to deal with enemy forces, even withou the helos.

  2. Topics says this is also for H2H, but text says it’s for AI only. Can someone change it to whatever is correct?

  3. I just played this battle. Excellent little battle with plenty of challenge.

    The scoring could be done differently as to results. But that is always a designer choice. It would be good to add points for unit losses to get more options as to results to ones play.

  4. Great small scale engagement, there was a lot of flexibility allowed and the forces were well balanced. Truly immersive, with lots of maneuvering firefights and plenty of great little stories.

    ***SPOILER ALERT***

    Starting out with the engineers and the HQ left at the farm and the sniper and javelin sections holding the town it became clear I was up against more than just a few scouts. Retreating the commander back to the church after losing the main gun on the Bradley, he picked up the Javelin and started doling out his revenge from the church spire. Two BMP’s and a T-72 later, he sat by helplessly as the Russians attacked his cut off engineer section at the farm. Setting up an ambush at the bend in the road leading in to town, the heroic engineer squad with the supporting Bradley managed to fend off the Russian attack even as the Squad leader was cut down by a BMP. Getting greedy after blunting the attack on the left flank, the engineer’s Bradley shifted right to engage the BMP’s attacking across the open field but was met by the incredible marksmanship of a BMP on the move, forcing the crew to bail out. I breathed a sigh of relief when follow-on forces arrived bringing fresh javelins and Bradley to rescue my force. Pulling back the engineer squad and rearming them with AT-4’s, they sat and waited for the Russians to enter the town and blunt their advance. The reinforcing javelins halted the Russian advance across the field while the snipers picked off any dismounts that were foolish enough to stick their heads up. The few BMP’s that remained met their fiery end at the hands of 1st section’s Bradley as they pushed down the road the engineers had retreating down. The Apaches arrived on station and they started their grim task of mopping up the survivors in the field. The sound of T-72’s was reported coming down the MSR and one of the Apaches was redirected to engage. One got through and wreaked havoc through my rear until a couple of brave scouts got a mobility kill at the cost of their lives. The re-tasked Apache soon finished him off and the battle ended in a US victory.
