OK well we'll confirm the manning prior to start (ideally you can both be there at little early, 1800 GMT - if you can make it).

Has our OOB been finalized?  Also, there is currently an imbalance of tank-to-mech players.  If needed, you can switch me to a Leo.

Yes the OoB is final, its listed in the Orders above and is the same as when we ran this last June.

 

The manning isn't.

 

As I've written a few times already (is reading really such an overrated skill) we will distribute the manning depending on:

 

1. Who actually turns up.

 

2. Which CT is in contact. You are likely to be controlling a vehicle section / platoon and moving from one CT to another as the battle develops. The lead CT will be manned the most, the 2nd a little less and the depth one will be primarily controlled by me (until the lead CT is attrited).

 

I'm not too worried about a Tank to Mech imbalance as there are twice as many Leo platoons to Marder ones.

That's good because there will only be one. :)

As expected it was a bloody affair. We were able to blunt the Soviet spear but at great cost.

I hated those Hinds.  Must have been about ten of them in all.  Wish we had some SAM teams or something better.  Tough mission, but fun playing.  I want to play this on my own, but the password prevents me from cutting out those Hinds.  Heheh.  I'll just have to deal with 'em.  In any case, we destroyed a good supply of the early entry numbers of T-90s.  Should be a bit easier from here on against T-80s and T-72s.

Glad you enjoyed it.

 

Attack helos are just part of what Red gets - along with buckets of artillery.

 

The air defence was busy guarding the river crossings and unfortunately fighting units usually have to fend for themselves.
