The Ossies entered Niedebayern in order and ready to deal with any resistance they could meet. But there was no resistance. In a while, they found an abandoned McDow full of perfect bavarian beer in big barrels. The position was secured, and the Oberstleutenant thought the beer wouldn't do any harm... How wrong he was! As the Ossies finished the first Mass, they saw capitalist armour in the distance. They wouldn't believe that it was the NATO secret weapon in effect, and started to shoot at... Soviet T-64s! The Soviet BMPs opened fire to help the T-64s and destroyed several East German vehicles.
The East German Shilkas crushed the "capitalists" from the flank, the BMPs returned fire from the front.
Т-64 moved to counter the flanking attack, a Soviet motor rifle platoon attacked mot.-schuetzen from backside. But here arrived the help from the skies - a four of shining Mi-24s!
The Soviet BMPs were destroyed or driven away.
Shilkas against Shilkas - which are better?
Socialist operating proficiency allowed the East Germans to repell all the attacks and finally mount a counterattack.
The panzers came from reserve to support the counterattacking mot.-shuetzen.
The Soviet Mi-24s arrived, making a threat for the coming panzers.
Even after the first platoon of T-55 was destroyed, the attack continued
Despite the skill and combat efficiency of the Soviet T-64 tank crews, there was no possibility to hold the T-55 tide!
Only in Leipzig after sobering up the German socialist soldiers understood they delivered Plzen into the hands of NATO!

    Curse you! Not for claiming a West German win, we’ll take that. But your apartment buildings look so darned good on that excellent table that now I’m going to have to order some! Interesting game, with a surprising outcome.

    Interesting! East German on Russian with the victory by East Germans?

    Yet it counts as a WARSAW PAC victory!

    Our group has the same problem, Had to have two of our NATO players play a game as WARSAW PAC, The NATO players are doing the report as a loss (So they get credit for the report) and then linking to our senior WARSAW PAC player to get the point for the WARSAW PAC.

    Our Senior East German player just went over to the NATO forces and is now attacking the Senior Russian player! were trying to figure out how to score, Most likely will use a similar method as we have for the above.

    In this case, you should claim as lose and link to a NATO player for points

    This is the problem with red on red and blue on blue

    Great looking battle field!
