Seven Days To The River Rhine -3rd Time Lucky

Postby WingAttackPlan-R » Sat Jan 11, 2020 4:18 pm

At this point, I`m starting to have serious doubts about the Brits as we faced-off against the Soviets for the first time.

The Brits load-up with a few more Chieftain Stillbrew in an attempt to counter the T-72 tank, and Spandrel anti-tank missile. The UK infantry come into their own killing T-72s with LAW rockets.

The Chieftain`s finally get their shooting boots on, and begin to stabilise the front.

The British love it when a plan, finally, comes together! :roll: ;) :roll:

As an example of how tight these games can be, this game ended on turn four with the last roll of the dice. The Soviets were down to one command token, the Brits down to three. The surviving Chieftain on the left of the road (32B), activated using a command token. The Soviet T-72B reacted, using his last token, fired, and missed. 32B fired, hit, penetrated, and killed what happened to be the Soviet HQ vehicle. The Chieftain on the right of the road (31C) used the Brits second last token to power down the road using a `rapid move` to get a shot at the last surviving T-72B. The last UK token was then spent, a successful activation roll was made by 31C. A four was needed on a D10 to hit and `10` was rolled. The Chieftain hits with `10`, set against the T-72B forward armour of `16`. From the last dice, facilitated by the last token of the turn, a `7` was rolled, just enough to kill the T-72B, taking the Soviets past the required threshold of 66 `Breakpoints` by a single point to 67 Bp. On such fine margins can these games turn, keeping them enthralling, right to the end of play.
