AKA, Unit 101’s 2nd Fight of Operation Payback
It’s 0330 on 5 Jul 1990, and Unit 101’s Team 2 has just captured The Sheikh and is on the way to the HLZ for extraction. But they run into a little trouble; luckily Major Villanueva figured this might occur and had planned accordingly. The Platoon Sergeant and Team 3 are standing by on overwatch.
Overview, north is up. The HLZ is at right, Team 3 will be in overwatch at bottom center and bottom right, covering Team 2 coming in at top right, while bad guys enter via the road at left. The objective is simple: Team 2 gets The Sheikh to the HLZ and is extracted.
I’m playing these fights using Ivan Sorensen’s rules “Five Men at Kursk,” modified a little to make them a bit more modern and deadly.
The good guys; most of the troops are 15mm Khurasan, but the shooters have two Battlefront figures, and the sniper and MG teams are Eureka.
The bad guys: ten hostiles (Flytrap Factory Taliban).
Sniper team on overwatch.
The machine gun team laying down fire, what? Uh-oh… To see how the fight went, and if the extraction went off, please check the blog at:
Next stop, gotta see a guy about a bomb maker in northern Italy. Next fight, coming right up.
