A long weekend and time for a game on Saturday evening of Modern Spearhead, and what a fine game it was.
The Soviets complete with BMPs and BTRs launched a considered attack on the British who conducted a flexible defence. Supported by tanks the Soviets struggled to gain traction initially, but as additional battalions were committed so the British defenders came under increasing pressure.
Realising the Soviet plan the British commander ordered forward one then two battalions. Now, while Chieftains and FV432s lurched forward in counter-attacks artillery observers directed coordinated fires in support of mechanised infantry in a desperate effort to breakup the Soviet attack.
Yet would the Soviet Hind helicopters wreck havoc on the British defenders around Erlabrunn?
