Nato command ordered a counter attack. Rather than being flanked, the soviets ordered a fighting withdrawal. My army consisted of a full mechanized company: 3 infantry backed up by 113s with VADS and 3 ITV platoons, Abrams and a attached 109 battery armed with copperheads and an observer 113. My opponent pushed very far out with his spearhead of 2 BMP reconnaissance , on my left side. Seizing on this opportunity. I allocated most of my ITVS and Armor on the left allowing me to immediately wipe out most of the lead elements almost immediately. What remained after one turn of fire just became a 'rear detachment' thanks to morale. My infantry managed to clear a path through the mine fields the soviets placed before the battle, so my advance up the left side was slowed due to continuous fire. from the T72's parked in the center of the board. The 109 and their copper heads paid for themselves as the FIST miraculously survived the entire battle and was able to lase some very important T72s with his designator. By turn 6, I had driven my opponent off the left objective. However he pulled it on that turn leaving victory just out of my reach. With turn over, we called it. As I expended all my assets was not able to push on to the center in any meaningful way. The soviets were hurting as well as 3 of their tank platoons had 1 remaining tank in each one again. Air power proved to be ineffective this game as my A10 pilots had to eject due to the dreaded SA9's . Morgan's Hinds didn't do any better as .50 aa fire turned them upside down over a forest.

    As fingolfen suggested, maybe a little line under each photo to give a better understanding what each is and it looks much nice with big Pictures to get the grasp of what happend.
    Sorry for the loss :/ But next time you will come around!

    Sounds like you did a lot of damage, shame none of his tank platoons ran away with their morale checks. Good job.

    Nicely done, Fitzi. Pushing an attack against Soviet tanks in that scenario is difficult. You did well to get that close

    You are correct!

    Decent report! You might consider interspersing the photos, but that is a nice looking table! Congratulations on the win!
