I. SITUATION

    Friendly forces from the 12th Armoured Regiment are are preparing to conduct their attack along Highway 252 to seize critical bridges at Großenmarpe. The enemy in Großenmarpe is estimated as Battalion-strength, however, we are only expecting a MECH COY in our sector which is serving as a flank protection force. We anticipate encountering enemy recon forces between Phase Line ARRAN and BADGER, with the most probably enemy defensive positions near the town of Kleinenmarpe (between PL BADGER and CARLOW). Friendly scouts made contact in Bruntrup last night but were forced to retrograde after taking casualties and direct fire from enemy armor. 

 

    Objective Guardian is key terrain for supporting Großenmarpe; the enemy Brigade is in a position to support the defenses at Großenmarpe and retain those critical bridges, but their axis for reinforcing passes through Objective Guardian. Therefore we must hold Objective Guardian to protect the flank of the 12th Armoured and prevent additional enemy forces from reinforcing Großenmarpe.

A really good mission I enjoyed it, very well scripted. The REDFOR was well balanced, and was appropriate with regards to equipment and ammo. 

 

The REDFOR had been placed in well picked ambush positions and did a good job of snagging my advance. 

 

I'm being really picky here... 

 

Personally I would've put in MCV Warriors, instead of ULAN's. However it was a breath of fresh air, playing with a 30mm digital FCS, stabilised and with thermals. So that's not a criticism.

 

With regards to the UK ORBAT a TYPE 58 regimental style of squadron I feel would've fit better. So 3 Challenger Troops, with 3 vehicles each. Then a CO and XO. 4 Warriors/ Ulan Kept the same. 

A reconnaissance force of scimitars would've worked well here, no more than 4, half of a RECCE troop. I ended up using the CO challenger and an ULAN to act as recon. 

 

The 120mm mortar teams were my biggest criticism, if it was a NATO force and they were attached then fair enough. The only mortar in service now with the UK is the 81mm. I would've rather have had 6 tubes of off map 155mm. This would have traded more time for splash, to a harder hitting arty strike. 

 

I did like the fact that the care had been taken to fit the force with the correct ammo, so the challengers were sent out with L28A1, and the Infantry had NLAW LAT. So a big credit to apocalypse for that, I was expecting to see LMG teams with MG3's.

Thanks for the feedback. V3 will reflect those recommendations, minus the Scimitar.
