|Survivors from Scenario 1|
|Red "flash" markers indicate which tanks have shot - these are now visible at daylight ranges.|
On the other flank the two surviving T72s from scenario 1 tried to engage the remaining M1s but failed miserably - then quickly paid the price as both were killed in quick succession.
Back to the main attack. The T72s halted on encountering the minefield but the infantry worked around the edges and started to infiltrate into the woods to secure the objective.
At which point the Mech Platoon opened up with its Dragon ATGMs, instantly killing a T72 and putting quite a lot of hurt on the infantry. Return fire was ineffective mainly as the Yanks were dug in.
|Holding the objective|
The Soviet infantry try to assault the Mech position, but are beaten off by infantry fire supported by the M113s .50 cals
Meanwhile the remaining M1s swing around the wood to try and engage the T72s which turn to meet them
Again the superiority of the M1s is quickly proven, forcing the Soviet commander to commit more tanks to the flank.
So two training missions down, one to go. This time it will be a Soviet counter attack in the face of both US armour AND air support - I expect it will be brutal :-)
