Battle Report - The Hungarian Border Conflict

25 Comments

Game Three of the big Team Yankee show down saw the Soviets counter attacking the Lyodoslavian - Hungarian border defended by two US mechanised platoons and a pair of VADS AA Tanks (Shilkas as proxies...).

CommodoreRob & Commanderkaiser would take command of the Soviet ground forces and Helicopters, with Oriskany providing top cover in the Frogfoot. The US forces were split between Wayne07 & DaveBPG while Stusidle was keeping a watchful eye in the skies in a pair of A10 Warthogs.

Our story begins at dawn as the Soviets follow the main road heading towards the border crossing, captured by the US forces the previous day.

The US Infantry had spent the night digging foxholes and preparing their defensive positions, hoping to be able to hold out long enough for Armoured and Helicopter support to arrive before the Soviets arrived.

As the ground began to shake and the squeaking noise of treads rolled over the horizon... they realised with a sigh that today might not be their day after all.....

Battle Report - The Hungarian Border Conflict (Turn One)

31 Comments

The Americans have dug in in this first turn of the battle and the Soviets have rolled forward up the road with an eye to oust them from their fox holes.

The Frogfoot flew in but didn't manage to hit anything, instead blasting a house to smithereens! Some American reserves are powering in however to support.

There has been a lot of posturing from the sides as they move closer together. Interestingly the A10 flew in behind enemy lines and didn't manage to bring a single chopper down...

Look out for what's coming next as the armies get ready to bring each other down.

Battle Report - The Hungarian Border Conflict (Turn Three)

21 Comments

The US bought on some reserves this turn and were able to bring down a couple of the Soviet tanks which have taken up position right in front of the US soldiers who were dug in behind the hedges.

A strike from the air did nothing as it was scared off by AA and the infantry valiantly tried to bring down some of the approaching armour.

Things are looking dire for the US as the Soviets still have a whole host of HINDs in reserve. Next turn could prove to be bloody as the tanks finally just roll over the infantry.

Battle Report - The Hungarian Border Conflict (Turn Four)

22 Comments

The Soviets and the US have rolled into each other and despite some destruction from the Soviets, as the tanks and AA tried to hold them back, we've had some big successes on the US side.

The US managed to bring down FIVE HINDs and then bought in some reinforcements which have been pounding the Soviet tanks and forcing them to think again with their strategy.

Cobras have hunkered down and will be surprising the enemy as they pop up from behind the fuel tanks. Meanwhile the Abrams pick off a few of the forces in the open.

The game stands on a knife edge as the battle lines get incredibly close.

Battle Report - The Hungarian Border Conflict (America Strikes Back!)

21 Comments

Despite the US soldiers being run over by the Soviet tanks the Americans have been striking back.

Interestingly the Abrams have cleared the way and blasted apart a whole bunch of the Soviet tanks before then sending in some crunching shots to the side armour, brutally destroying around five of their number.

The dice have been on their side and the Soviets are still pushing in on the target objective however.

John puts together one of the HINDS from the Soviet set letting you see how they go together. It's certainly one of the favourite Choppers from the weekend.

It's the one we sprayed gold and turned into Lloyd's Premier Chopper!

Battle Report - The Hungarian Border Conflict (Final!)

22 Comments

The final nail in the coffin came with some awesome rolls which ended up bringing the enemy low. The Soviets pushed forward but all sorts of American counterattacking push the Soviets off the objective and made for a US win.

It was looking hairy to begin with as the Soviets closed in around the US and crushed their infantry. With the US holding the line I'm sure the next Soviet counterattack won't be far behind.
