We played a big 300+ points Total War battle in Saint Petersburg, and changed some rules to match it to the campaign. As we played 3 on 3, we decided to count it as three battles for the campaign, so divided the report into 3 parts.
That is the second part of the Battle Report.

The Mi-24s attacked the Abrams tanks, which were supported by VADs and used every .50 cal to stop the Soviet helicopters
Five Mi-24s out of 10 were destroyed, but the other five killed two Abrams tanks and bailed another one, and the American tankers were so frustrated they fled the field of battle!
The second Abrams platoon engaged the T-55AM2s and together with M109 arty destroyed and bailed a bunch of them.
Leo-2s and light British armour advanced to engage multiple Soviet AT missile platoons.
Several AT missiles were destroyed, the NATO helicopters also destroyed a pair of Soviet T-72s
As for the Soviet right flank, the British were advancing in their characteristical manner, getting closer to their table edge.
SU-25s supported the East German attack, killing another Abrams and bailing one.
Leo-2s started to suffer losses due to the Soviet AT missiles fire, the British light tanks were annihilated in no time, as the Soviet infantry fired its AT assets at them.
The Soviets scored the first hit at the Chieftains, killing one with a T-72.
Americans needed help to hold against the countless T-55AM2s, and the West Germans rushed to the rescue with one platoon of Leo-2s and another of Marders. The feared A-10s entered the battlefield, damaging and destroying East German panzers.
T-55AM2s enterd close range under constant American artillery fire, but the sturdy Soviet design provided quite high protection from capitalist artillery shells!
The British returned fire, destroying several T-72s on the Soviet right flank.
More and more NATO forces were engaged against the East German onslaught!
T-55AM2s suffered medium losses.
Abrams tanks were concentrated at killing T-55AM2s in front of them, but another pack got'em from the rear!
One Abrams tank was destroyed by T-55AM2s flanking fire, the rest decided to fall back to a safer position.
One by one, Leo-2s were getting aflame as the Soviet and East German missiles found their weaker spots. The panzer crews got nervous and failed to cross a simple obstacle!
While their allies were in the heat of battle, the British tankers stuck to their methodical advance doctrine, hunting one T-72 after another.
Comrade! Be aware of the fact, that the video above is NATO-biased! It's better for you if you don't speak Russian, as in this case you won't understand the capitalist propaganda!
The battle was at it's peak, the main directions of advance were already chosen, but it was still a lot of fighting ahead! The Soviet infantry was either behind the thick walls of a town in the central part of their positions or in the comfortable BMPs far behind the endless tank hordes. They'll show their strength in the final part of the epic struggle!
