VS British
Dan Grant

August 25th 1985 1700hr local

British Armor seen crossing highway 12. Heading West toward Ottisville. Composition unknown.

Quick mission-Recon in force (reset the board)

Objectives set. Are you ready to rummmmmble!!!

Turn 1:
Troop 1 dashes forward, Troop 2 moves to cover their dash, XO and CO split to support each troop and swingfires dash to their right

Russians use spearhead and scouts move to the first Russian objective-The first T-64 company is right behind them, 2nd T-64 company fans out to the left. Durchenko moves to the extreme left.

Scouts forward.
Going according to plan. Dan is planning something.

Turn 2 :
The troops move -1 troop moves up and over the open field and 2 troop moves toward the closest objective-fire at scouts-miss-fire long range T-64s and bails it.

Russians remount the T-64, Scouts fir ATGMs roll 2 1s and miss.

Misses.

Turn 3:
1 Troop secures 1 objective and 2 Troop secures another objective. Now to claim a third!!! The swingfires move to cover an objective. A T64 is KIA and the CO KIAs a scout BMP.

The remaining scout passes morale fires-misses
T-64s fire and ......useless
Another T-64 company moves and 3 bogg down in the trees

It's all gonna come down to that center objective.

Turn 4:
The Brits have a round of just awful rolling. The CO does KIA the last scout BMP, but they only manage to bail 2 T-64s

The Russians manage to KIA the British CO and KIA an additional Chieftan.

Not according to plan.

Turn 5:
8 shots from the chieftans and another bad round results in only 2 bails -a swingfire shot hits-Russian rolls a 6 armor save. XO misses his shots. And its gonna end badly.

The Russians Kill 2 more Chieftans and miss the swingfires and the XO. The last Chieftan breaks it's morale and the fight ends.

Game over man!! Game over!!

So-not our best game-but pretty fast-less than an hour. Bad rolling for Dan and some lucky rolls for me got me the win. I'll be honest-my only plan was to keep Dan from getting that center objective.
