Forward troops of 8th Guards Army pushed Forward in an attempt to outflank Frankfurt an reaching the Lahn river at Limburg. If succesfull, there would another day or two to finally reach the Rhine.
Some worn down US Forces stood in their way.
The Mission was Free for All.
1x BMP-2 Command
5x T-64 (Cobra)
Flo's US Forces
1x M1 Command
1x MEch. Inf. platoon
I was the attacker and there fore started to deploy first. My aim was to go over the left flank with my dashing infantery and to hold the other one with my BMP's. My T-64 should use the village in the middle of the table to sneak into the american lines.
He won the roll for the first turn ans started to shoot on my BMP's. There are enough of them. I postioned my BMP for the next turn to hit his M1 with very available Konkurs Missile. My Su-25 also arrived and attacked his Vulcans directly. My T-64 also were in Position to do so. As a result every Vulcan was destroyed in the first round. Not that bad. I lost a Su from AA fire, but the sky was clear now.
On the second turn he started to hit my T-64. Lucky for me that the M1 did not shoot well, only the Cobras knocking out one T-64. His Arty hit one Company of BMP and destroyed some.
In my turn the SU arrived again, hunting this ugly Cobras. The Hinds attacked one platoon of M1. He rolled for his AA fire and killed one Hind making the other turn around. How often does this happen in my games. I should only use four or more. His Arty was killed by accurate Konkurs fire and one M1 also fell to T-64 Cobra Missiles.
He knocked out several BMP with his M1 and tried to Reposition the rest of his army. My T-64 were now a able to strike in every direction and also with 14" of movement able to hit the flank of his M1.
On the left side my infantery was short before the objective and started to fight his mech platoon.
The fight was short and the mech platoon was wiped out completely. The objective was still to far away.
His one M1 platoon was the only unit that could reach the objective. With the danger to get sideshots from the advancing T-64. Well done.
