GIBRALTAR – THE RECONQUISTA
Spain claims Gibraltar, a 6-square-kilometre Overseas Territory of the United Kingdom in the southernmost part of the Iberian Peninsula. Then a Spanish town, it was conquered by an Anglo-Dutch force in 1704 during the War of the Spanish Succession on behalf of Archduke Charles, pretender to the Spanish throne.
The legal situation concerning Gibraltar was settled in 1713 by the Treaty of Utrecht, in which Spain ceded the territory in perpetuity to the British Crown stating that, should the British abandon this post, it would be offered to Spain first. Since the 1940s Spain has called for the return of Gibraltar.
Spain has now ordered its Armored Forces to cross the border and take possession of Gibraltar.
The Extremadura and Cantabria Brigades are to capture the following objectives and defend Gibraltar from any attempt of the UK to retake the peninsula:
1/Extremadura 3 x Leopard 2A5 Tanks
2/Extremadura 3 x Leopard 2A5 Tanks
1/Cantabria 3 x Pizarro F1 IFV
2/Cantabria 3 x Pizarro F1 IFV
U.K. Garrison Forces are reported to have Chieftain Tanks and Infantry with Anti-Tank weapons.
A message will be generated when an objective is captured.
Mech Infantry must be used to capture an objective.
Scenario takes approximately 45 minutes to play.
