Hanover Germany near Langenhagen.
Day 3 of the War.
U.S. forces have shifted north after the diversion attack at Fulda. The true axis of the Soviet armored attack is heading for the German industrial heartland. If the Soviet armored onslaught cannot be stopped here only the nuclear option remains.
The advanced guard for the 2nd echelon 7th Soviet Guards Division is roughly 20 minutes away from contact with our forward scouts. Position your forces now.
OH-58D Kiowa Warrior support on loan from 10th Mountain Division- Set the scout route but no further east than defense-line BUZZER or you risk being spotted.

This scenario was put together with the help of the voices above and with the best intelligence available regarding forces in the AO of the era. While normally the BOAR would be handling the area to the northwest of Hanover, in this scenario a feint to the south has drawn British forces away due to soon forseen issues of war leaving US armor forces rushing to meet the enemy.
After consulting SSnake, the following airport, Langtenhagen, is NOT municipal in real life nor is it to the north-east of Hanover (it is to the north-west). Thank you Nils.
Also, UAV visuals were used seeing how the best I can do in terms of using the mast-mounted systems of the OH-58D at tree-top level. This is due to current limitations in SB Pro.
Ammunition in both tanks and in the hands of infantry is as accurate as possible to this era.
The challenge of this mission is to defend a wide area. The advancing forces are the advance guard of a Soviet tank regiment. The main body of this regiment will be seen in missions 3 and 4 in this series.
Helicopter support through OH-58D is available along with M109 support to the north.
Should you have issues or spot bugs please contact Cobrabase so that I can remedy the issue and build a more realistic experience. No doubt some issue will arise.
