Nothing wrong with that.
There’s an action in Red Army by Ralph Peters, where a Soviet airborne unit is dropped to take a bridge. The expected ground forces never arrive, and in fact aren’t expected to by anyone outside the airborne unit – the drop was a diversion.
I think that makes an interesting scenario, especially if the Soviet player hasn’t read the book.
