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.
