|Mid-way through Autobahn battle|
Our first game was a Free for All, 100 pts, Poles attacking. For objectives we agreed that it would be the two hills in each others deployment zones. The Poles far-left T-72 company advanced through the Autobahn stop, winning the exchange of fire with the three Chieftains covering that avenue of advance. The center T-72 company advanced to provide added pressure and the Hinds swept across the battlefield and engaged the BAOR command element. The right T-72 company held the flank against the other half of the BAOR forces. The capture of the hill gave the Poles victory.
|Poles fail to hold Chow and Gas|
Our second was No Retreat, 100 pts, BAOR attacking. BAOR Recce elements advanced up their right flank flanking the defended gas stations and forest to come in behind the dug-in Polish infantry. The Chieftains on the left defeated an advancing attempt by the BMP-2s through the farm fields, but only after losing two of their number to combined fire from the center T-72s and the advancing BMP-2s themselves. NATO air power DEAD (destroyed enemy air defenses) and then added its pressure against the ground forces. BAOR forces destroyed the present Polish forces as T-72 reinforcements arrived piecemeal and late.
Our third game was Dust Up, 50 pts, BAOR attacking. (Sorry no picture) BAOR Recce forces attempted to pincer the Polish forces, but Polish BMP-1 Recon elements pushed out along the BAOR right, flanking and eliminating advancing BAOR forces. The delayed arrival of BAOR Chieftains resulted in what is best described as a stalemate between Spartans and a T-72M company on the BAOR left. The arrival of Polish Hinds with infantry and a second T-72M company shifted the initiative squarely to the Poles, with the Hinds landing around the distant objective. The successful destruction of 3 Hinds on the ground drove the infantry out of the helicopters early and gave the Poles victory.
