View NE to SW. It was a clear morning. Our forces gather along the forest and in the Marsh's. This is not good ground to fight on.
The main Commander moved his two groups of T-72 thru the woods thanks to the BMP-2 recon they found a safe path.
Recon also reported some enemy infantry units in the area. This should be a cake walk.
So major Meyers made the decision to attack. I have to answer to him although I thought it was a little early. He rushed from his spots and opened fire.
He started his formation behind the hedge. He gave away his position. He was going to fast for a night battle.
Major Meyer paid dearly. The British were waiting for them. Milans opened fire and took out some of the T-72 s. An order from high comand came thru saying use the road.
The major thinks he knows better. He went over the hedges instead. Rookie mistake, all hell half of the tanks are bogged down. Leaving the rest of the tanks stuck behind them and out in the open.
A medium force of BMP-2 Infantry unit move in to help support the held up tanks.
Finally the tanks get over the hedges and start a firing line. They opened fire and missed there intended Targets.
So I finally caught up with the main body. My recon and infantry enters but the standing order I received from high comand was attack left. The major was on the right. Now I know why he is called away right Meyers.
My platoons were engaged by a recon patrol of scorpions. So we engaged with the BMP-2 support.
Then the ambush was spung. 3 chieftans popped out of cover. BMP-2 had no chance. The infantry was calling the major for assistance.
The idiot Commander let my boys die. He continued to press the British infantry instead of the chieftans.
He pays when the chieftans changed Targets when they realized the my Infantry was no real threat. The chieftans and mulians continued to hit the tanks and BMP-2 units.
Ok so instead of engaging the chieftans he goes to try and destroy the British infantry instead. He cannot see the bigger threat.
Well he once again losses move tanks and BMP-2. My infantry units engaged the scorpions and was able to knock out 2. Then we went mulians hunting. Slowly we think them down.
A group of copters showed up but forgot BMP-2 can shoot them. The BMP-2 shot down 2 and the other two ran. One small victory to us today
Looking over the battlefield I started to with draw my infantry units. When high comand asked were are you going. I responded back moving to the left flank as ordered. The major looks like he has it. Once we moved into position the major was losing. He was almost captured by the British. I sent in my fast moving recon units and saved him from capture. Unfortunately we were forced off the battlefield. Major Meyers will be given full credit for this lost of men and materials. I was promoted to Commander after this battle. I never found out what happened to the major.
The morning was clear and our forces gather. The T-72 line up on the right side and have moved into position thanks to the recon units. Major Meyers move too fast for a night attack. He rushed up to the hedge line and started to fire. A big mistake. What was worse was he didn't use the road and tried to jump the hedge line. Rookie mistake and it cost him as the tanks started to bog down. Then a formation of Chieftans popped up out of ambush cutting thru the T-72 formation like butter. I move my Infantry units in and got the chieftans attention. They made short work of my BMP supporting my infantry. All the infantry was able to dismount. Then the chieftans changed their attention back to the t 72 realizing we were not the threat. The British sent scorpions to engage us. Then reports of the T-72 were attacking infantry instead of engaging the chieftans. What is that idoit doing. Milans and chieftans now have the 2 formations of tanks in a cross fire. Well that is the difference between training and experience. The order came in to regroup and try and hit left. The major enored the order and continued to attack the British infantry. The chieftans continued to pound the T-72 and BMP-2 formations. I said to myself I have to save this idiot Commander. I sent in my BMP recon and was able to get him out. I was promoted to Commander and I never saw major Meyers again.
