    This scenario is dedicated to my good friend Steel Beasts Cavalry aka. Cobra (base). This is a scenario that would follow on to one of my previous and best scenarios, "Gradual Retreat". This one took a while as I wanted to perfect this scenario, It is accurate, ammo types are accurate to the year as well as vehicles, (But just think that the army national guard are still operating the M901's). --- After the gradual retreat scenario, the Soviet forces over run the defensive line and are moving with a large force, but the time bought has been used for our rear forces to establish a 170 Km defensive line, this is last line of defence before the Soviet forces reach France. The rest of the British forces left in the UK are mobilsed and will be in France within the next 16 hours, along with a 4 hr transit time before the first brigade of Challenger 1's can arrive from 4 Royal Tank Regiment. They have been redeployed from the Gulf. US Forces in the area have organised a defensive strategy to reppel the soviet advance, however it is unclear as to whether it will work. 2 ACR is divided into sub groups within sectors, groups 1-8 are defending Alpha section (North), whilst 9-18 are defending Bravo section (South). Each group holds a 10km wide gap, Alpha section stretches 80 Km, leaving bravo section with 90 Km. This 170 Km line is to protect France and Belguim, however France is under threat the most. 3 Group, 2 ACR's forward elements are expected to make contact with scouting elements from the first echelon of a detachment from a Guards divison, the 5th Motorised Infantry Regiment.

  2. KANIUM SUNDAY 27TH OF MAY 1800 GMT - "OPERATION JANUS" BY SNS Where: Kanium TS : teamspeak3.i3d.net:10077 World Clock 1800 GMT(Same time as always) World clock 1800 UTC IMPORTANT NOTICE: This SB session may be recorded w. video and sound and uploaded, including to a public youtube channel Everybody is Welcome you don't have to belong to kanium TF 3-78 TOC somewhere near STEINFURT – really early!! “Gentlemen please sit down” Lt Col Sweet looked tired. A coffee in one hand and a cigarette in the other he seemed to fall into his rather rickety folding camping chair. Huddled in his large combat jacket, and non-regulation fleece, he took a sip of coffee and slowly looked around the crowded audience. In the dim light of the tent, the low hum of the Bn TOC at work carried on in the background. “OK, listen up, this IS important. I have just got off a call with the Bde COM – I know it may not look like it right now, but apparently, we are winning. NATO air forces have turned the tide in the north. The Brits, Germans, Belgians and Dutch Corps managed to HOLD the Poles and Soviet 3rd SHOCK Army at the Dutch Border, with a little help from our REFORGER units that managed to get there in time – they made a difference. The French have also gave a good account of themselves, but being French did not stray too far from their own borders. Still………… So, the good news gentlemen is the Soviets are on the defensive, which means we get to ATTACK. Now I will let the staff brief you in a minute, but I wanted to give you my thoughts first, before you all get mired into the detail. I have a very simple mission. Go find the enemy, destroy him quickly to facilitate the CORPS flank attack into the Soviets rear areas. That is the good news. The bad news is I need to do this within the next 6 hours. 5 US Div RESERVE is the lead element of the Corps attack and is already mobilised and on their way here. We can expect to see their forward elements in the next 4 hours. And, the Enemy gets a vote. Our Soviet friends have only just moved into Hasty Defence and I do not want them to be too settled. We gave them a bloody nose, but as you all know they stopped themselves, they still have a lot of combat power. This will not be easy. But be clear, we MUST DESTROY the enemy force to our East and open a path for 5 Div to rapidly exploit. Now listen to the Staff, read the FRAGO and leave questions until the end. Lt Col Sweet stopped and let out a long breath. He looked at each of the TF Commanders in turn and wondered who would still be there for the AAR? Excerpts of the battalion commander's orders for TF 3-78... 1) SITUATION: a) Enemy: 1. Terrain: See Bn Trace. 2. Weather. Temp -6. vis out to 3000m, 50% chance of snow/sleet. 3. Vital Ground. All bridges are operational. Control of the Village of LANGEN (Obj PETER) will provide crossing points over River DANUBE. 4. Key terrain. Hill 213 and 214 offer good visibility of Obj PARKER. ALTHAUSEN is not controlled by the Soviets and we are prohibited by the Germans from entering or conducting FIRES into its location. PENELOPE is occuppied by a Soviet Armoured MR Coy+. CDT will strike and SECURE PENELOPE, but it is wel ldefended. DO NOT become decisively engaged with PENELOPE. 5. General Situation. The soviet invasion of western Europe has finally stalled after 8 days fighting. Despite heavy losses and with most of Western Germany under Soviet control, NATO BLOCKED the Soviet Advance and is now preparing to COUNER ATTACK. 6.

  6. Hello all, I have a question, how in real life a TC spots target for his gunner ? I understand that in M1A2, the TC has its CITV, so he can scan using it or just put it on automatic mode while doing other thing and when he see something, he slave the gun on what is saying and after that the 5 words procedure start. But for the M1A1, how they do ? Did they just watch outside with their eyes and binocle and when they saw something they try to move the gun in that proximatly direction or tell to their gunner "tank 2 o'clock 1 kilometer right of a house" and after that the 5 word procedure starts ? Other question. In steel beast and in tank manual that I rode, the "Identify" is used when you see the target that your TC is telling you, but on M1A1 for example, I guess that the TC and gunner are scanning for targets, more than M1A2 because gunner has most the time control of the TIS, I want to say that on M1A1 the gunner is the eyes of the tank when on M1A2 the TC and gunner are the eyes, if a M1A1 gunner see a tank, what does is say ? "Identify tank", "Contact tank", "Tank", what's the word ? M1A1 looks harder to use than the M1A2, because it doesn't have CITV and we have M1A1 and M1A1 (HA) in SB with poor TIS, when today USMC/US Army use M1A1 SA and M1A1 FEP, and I guess these version use better TIS like the M1A2 has. Thank's, sorry for my strange english

    The Red tide 1988. The war to hold back the Soviets is failing, the German forces have been forced to fall back as their flank has collapsed, the BAOR still stands strong, and we the US forces are on the retreat now. We have to try and hold back the soviet forces for there to be a civillian evac from the city of Archen, trucks still haven't evacuated everyone, they need an hour, so we must try and hold back the enemy force as there is no-one between us and the city. We have a simple mission, hold the enemy back for an hour. --- 1 PT of M1A1 HA 1 PT of M1A1 2 PT's of M2A2 1 PT of M3A2. With a few other assets. Good luck. NOTES: The ammo types are CORRECT. All blue and red forces are to date. Any bugs please comment below.
