It was hella fun and we got more testing done on the rules mods, I've been a sporadic to vacant contributor, the work has been done by my comrades Than, Pooch and Kruger. Huzzah guys!
|Here we see an F-16 that got through our CAP bringing the pain!|
|Turnabout is fair play, however, it was Pooch again having his tanks killed...|
With two companies of Syrian tanks on our left and part of a Soviet MR battalion on the right we were confident. Both of Than's T72M companies took turns firing at the delaying force of the American armored cav, effectively neutering it in the first turn we thought. It is however, a big flexible unit. With ATSNKF they were unbreakable.
|A single BM is all we ever got on the damn Merks|
We needed to have put some more BM's on them at least. (Blast markers act as suppression on individual units.)
|Cute right! Krokodil thought so too, tasty!|
SHOULD have passed it up and smashed some Merks and again got a couple more BM's at least.
|Wait, attack helicopters attacking me?! Not good.|
|Bringing the pain.|
|An activation too far. About to get caned.|
|One of several, targeting two companies of T72M's for some reason.|
|Oh jeez. That is a lot of wrecks.|
|Here comes the infantry! Broken tank formations aren't scary.|
|Look at that Tomcat shaped shadow! Flares, flares...!!|
Total failure of our air cover should have been expected despite bringing two Mig29's! The enemy was also able to suppress our Shilkas and we hadn't modeled the integral SA7's of the MRR company yet.
Super fun game again though!
Pooch has more thorough AAR at his blog.
Total western domination, after a really good looking, and I may even say overwhelming start by the Soviet Bloc!
