Good afternoon, all.  Here is the slightly-edited stream replay of last night’s game of People’s General, where we imagined a scenario in the early 1990s where the “Fall of the Soviet Union” was much more violent than took place historically.

Long story short, Communist Party and Soviet Army hard-liners won out in the power grab after the the fall of Gorbachev, and the Soviet Union made a last desperate play against NATO in Europe, preferring to “die fighting.”

The scenario was built to roughly represent two of the top units that would have faced off on the norther German plain: 1st UK Armored Division and 9th Guards Tank Division.

Forces engaged:

9th Guards Tanks Division (1st Guards Tank Army, GSFG)
1,2,3 Battalion, 7th Guards Tank Regiment (T-90A)
1,2,3 Battalion, 40th Guards Tank Regiment (T-80U)
1,2,3 Battalion, 44th Guards Tank Regiment (T-80U)
1,2,3 Battalion, 9th Guards Independent Rifle Regiment (BMP-2)
1,2,3 Battalion, 249th Guards Rifle Regiment (BMP-2)
1,2 Battalion, 841st Guards Artillery Regiment (2S3 155mm)
1,2 Battalion, 1018 Antiaircraft Missile Regiment (2S6M Tunguska)
638th Guards Missile Battalion (BM-21 Grad)
