Hasty Attack - Fulda Gap

After pushing through the border defences, Polkovnik Lednik led a forward detachment towards a nearby road junction. Speed was the order of the day. The further he could push before the NATO forces could organize their defenses the more lives of his brothers would be spared taking this ground.

1st Guards tank Army

HQ - T-72
4x T-72
3x T-72
BMP-2 Motor Coy - Small (4x BMP-2)
4x BMP-2 Recon

US Tank Coy

HQ - M1 Abrams
2x M1 Abrams
2x M1 Abrams
2x M163 VADS Vulcan
2x AH-1 Cobra
2x A-10 Warthog


US started with HQ, 2x M1 Abrams and 2x M163 VADS Vulcan

The battle was played using the Fulda Gap Hasty Attack. Soviets started strong with their entire force on the table in darkness. First turn they pushed forward and the few units that could fire failed to find targets in the darkness.

US retaliated by taking out 2x T-72. No reserves.

They continued pushing forward and moved close to both objectives. Took out both M163 VADS Vulcan and one M 1 Abrams.

No reserves, the game was in great danger. Without reserves this game was soon over. One remaining M1 Abrams bogged whe it failed a cross check, the other failed to score hits.

Both objectives secured, both remaining M1 Abrams destroyed.


Thoughts on Mission,

Was hard to defend with no reserves showing up.

    Nice to read both sides

  • Tgunner91 says:

    Yeah, sorry about the sucky reserve situation. I think all of the current missions have one or both sides with significant reserves and that can make all the difference in a game. I guess it comes down to picking out the best units you can to start with and assume they are all you´re getting.

  • Gandri says:

    I liked the game although i lost i should have had infantry to help me out alittle.
    Lesson learned

  • Baron says:

    I’m sorry to hear that you had problems getting reserves in, have you thought of playing with higher points or with infantry units to help produce 3+ save models with dragons/milans?
    I know that Hasty attack is one of the HARDEST to defend for NATO players so I find it a little unfair :/
    But did you enjoy the game as a whole or where there things you could’ve done differently?
