Firestorm: Red Thunder

The Team Yankee Global Campaign

Bremen Firesack

Sig Nat
VS Warsaw Pact

A 110 aside clash with the British utilising spearhead moves to take both objectives and 3 out of the 4 board quarters before the Russains could deploy. (the Firesack) the inital Soviet turn left a couple of 432's & a rapier burnig. The return fire took out half the BMPs & about half of the tanks. End of turn two the soviets had 4 frogfoots that hadnt turned up yet....

Mission - Breman Counter Attack.
Table was setup by my opponent before I got to the club... Yellow Dice are the two objectives.

I took the South West corner as deployment, the Soviets North West.
Unit of Scorpions deployed in the woods to my East, then spearhead moved out at a terrain dash (no failed cross checks!) to behind the hill. The Scimitars then deployed on this hill and dashed forward to the East most building.
1 Platoon dug in on the East Hill joined by the Inf HQ & the blowpipes
2 Platoon moved into the building near the scimitars with a couple of stands dug in to the East..
2nd Armd Tp Setup in the East woods with 2 of the rapiers
Milan section dug in to the open space between the two woods
Strikers deployed to the front of the central woods joined by their HQ with the other 2 rapiers behind the wood.
The abots deployed against the board edge with 1 platoons & HQs 432s infront. 2 platoons 432s deployed as far forward as they could.

Soviets deployed with the BMPs to the East, all the tanks to the south of their deployment zone with the Hinds in the corner.

    Sig Nat,

    First, can use any of this. I don’t make comments of these nature and then walk away! Not my way! I’ve been helping my group with their write up too

    I cropped your photo and now have five additional shoots for you. Not sure how get to them to you?

    Is this how you were deployed

    To the North on the left flank 1st Mech Platoon, Immediately to their west was 2nd Mech Platoon and the Company HQ protecting a Battery of Abbots. In the woods to the south west were the Swing fire platoon and FOO. Behind the Rapier section was deployed. Between these woods and another to the south 4 Milan team had dug foxhole and laid in waiting. Hidden among the trees to the Southeast in the center of the battle position was a troop of chieftain and a section a rapier. In the Village to the west a troop of Scorpions stayed to the East to keep the village between them and the oncoming Russian forces. The Southern flank was protecting by 3rd Mech platoon and a section mobile Milan’s.

    The report is a bit lacking, review the stands of reporting. Upon resubmit I will re-evaluate. As is this would get one star!

    Storm Caller

    Check out on the how to evaluate a battle report in our briefing room. If you need help just say the word. With just this photo and the words I could possibly turn this into a five or six star rating

    A good win, Sig Nat, it would be good to see more information to improve your report. Splitting up the report by turn, and uploading the forces used in the battle will help your fellow commanders when they take the field.
