Tough slog at first for the US with the original forces in town getting basically steamrollered. The AA units apart from the Tunguskas are about as useful as a chocolate teapot. Once the US heavy armor arrives however, the boot is on the other foot, although I did manage to lose a couple of Abrams. The battle was basically over before US air support or heavy artillery were in play. I think the key thing for the Russians is not to over extend and be caught with their ass in the air when the heavy team arrive.

This really is a fantastic combined arms scenario, showcasing CMBS in all its pomp and ceremony.

Huge though - needs two committed/seasoned players! Thanks a great game Marco.

Quite a lot of fun. The scenario starts off heavily favouring the Russians and then switches once the US forces arive

This is a great battle. Lots of varied men and eqpt on both sides - much fun! US forces are surrounded and get hammered early in the battle, but reinforcements arrive and the battle is truly on. Very very enjoyable! Highly recommended.
