Breakthrough in NORTHAG Sector

Chieftains Counterattack

Despite strong counterattacks by British forces into the Hamburg area, the Warsaw Pact forces have broken through and are advancing on Bremen.

The Hamburg theatre is closed and the Bremen theatre opened.

Breakthrough in V Corps Sector

Heavy fighting in the Fulda Gap has resulted in significant losses to the NATO covering force. The main defensive line in front of Frankfurt is now under concerted attack.

The Fulda Gap theatre is closed and the Frankfurt theatre opened.

V Corps Counterattacking Strongly

US and West German forces have been launching strong counterattacks against the Warsaw Pact forces in the Hof Corridor. Warsaw Pact forces continue to advance slowly, but the losses on both sides are high. There are rumours of a NATO plan to reinforce this area and launch an attack into East Germany, although other analysts have stated that this may be premature given the overall situation.

    Are my eyes deceiving me or are those M60 tanks in that top picture? The hull and suspension look right and so does the turreted cupola. However I don´t remember the bustle rack.

    Reinforcements in form of US National Guard units are on the way. Hold the line until the transport ships arrive with fresh and motivated troops!

    These Soviets, their overconfidence amuses me. They’re praising each other, not realising that the element of surprise is now gone, and the NATO forces have regrouped and are ready to push them back over the border, and keep pushing until Berlin is liberated from their grimy grip once and for all.

    This is the most important phase, we must establish a breakthrough before the NATO forces can regroup!
