    Nice. Brings it all flooding back.

    Less enthusiasm, please. This is Britain.

    Right, today’s the day ‘Harry’s Chieftains’ get their baptism of fire! We’re doing two scenarios from ‘One Hour Wargames’, a bridge found unguarded and crossed by a patrol and a straight battle for two river crossings for the second.
    BAOR have two Chieftains, a FV 432, three Infantry stands plus Harry’s personal HQ. Ivan’s got some sort of very ugly tank, a wop off giant APC, four scabby looking Infantry stands and equally scruffy looking HQ… I’m impartial, so no clue will be given as to where my true loyalties lie.
    We let the HQ unit attach themselves to a badly shaken unit and rally off a D6 of hits, HQ then sticks with ’em to victory or death!

    Ivan has broken through with an elite Guards battlegroup and is rushing the river crossings. Motorised infantry have occupied the wood on the left flank supported by armour. On the right flank an infantry attack is forming to take that bridge too. Overhead is a fierce combat for air superiority.

    Scratch British units race to contain the Russian thrust…

    But, something is wrong with our bloody tanks today?

    The Empire strikes back!

    A shower of RPGs whoosh from the wood, the British APC explodes and Ivan crosses the left flank bridge. On the right flank the British tank commander’s excellent firing stall the Russian infantry attack.

     

    Seeing the enemy motorised infantry on his flank, the British tank commander’s brayn goes wonky, he rushes from an excellent hull down position to retake the bridge. It ends in tears very quickly…

    As night falls Ivan pushes on, he knows that a dawn attack on the next river crossing will have broken the enemy front completely.

    At dawn Ivan’s motorised infantry find the bridge completely undefended…

    Well concealed BAOR tanks open fire from their hides, these lads aren’t just anybody, these are Harry’s Chieftains!

    The Russian armour meet a quick end, but not before causing casualties to the British infantry.

    Harry’s lads unleash the full might of the Battlegroup and Ivan’s assault is smashed, he looses all his vehicles and their commander, Major Akim Lysenko, is captured and stands disconsolately by the roadside as Harry’s Chieftains thunder over the bridge!

    I like how completely unbiased you are.

    Way to go Harry
