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....

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.
