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.

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.
