Here is a pretty complex (red) scenario, that challenges your decision making in the field and your ability to read a map for defensive positions.
You have control of a reinforced Danish Leopard 1-A5 DK-1 tank platoon. It has been reinforced with 2 more Leopards from B-company and 6 M-113's with 106mm mortar. Appart from that you have a couple of scout GD's and a support attachment.
The OPFOR consists of 6 different levels ranging from 1 tank platoon to a brigade size force with support units. Furthermore the OPFOR can be enhanced with M-24 Hind airsupport, Mi-8 Airborne troops and/or a section of MRLS. So all in all a lot of different possibilitys of OPFOR.
Blue force is conducting a Defence in Sector, and OPFOR is conducting a Meeting Engagement.
Take your time in the planing phase so you don't get stuck with an element in the marsh or misplaced vehicle emplacements. Make sure you know how to get from one side of your sector to the other and have you your artillery priorities planed.
Small fast scenario. You have 2x M1A1's at your disposal - yours are slow as f... as it has a mineroler
See if you make the right decision the first time
And you better make up your mind in a hurry
M-SIMNET Platoon-Level Exercise
TASK: Conduct a hasty attack
Given four fully operational M1 simulators, SIMNET special
mapsheet with overlay, automated opposing forces, notional
friendly forces, and an OPORD, the platoon will move to and
assault an enemy position. The platoon will:
1. move along the specified route without error;
- formation and route
2. report all control measures IAW SOP;
- passage of all lines
- taking objectives
- getting in contact with enemy
3. execute appropriate actions on contact;
4. engage enemy forces with direct fires;
5. assault designated objective(s).
The scoring is based on the above rather then hits and how fast
you put steel on targets.
The tank platoon performs an attack on objective as one platoon of a
company team. The platoon leader receives the company OPORD
from the Co (Tm) commander and prepares for operations. The
platoon moves along designated routes from the TAA, crosses the
LD/LC, and continues to maneuver unopposed for approximately
five Km through PL Jack. The platoon orients toward OBJ STEEL A,
and secures CPs five and six. The platoon then performs actions
on contact, performs fire and maneuver to close and assault OBJ
STEEL A. The platoon consolidates on STEEL, reorganizes, and
prepares to continue the mission.
You should opt to play this either as gunner or TC in 1 PLT (1/A).
There are no scripted routes so you will have to move the platoons
in Company Wedge your self.

TASK: Conduct a movement to contact
Given four fully operational M1A1's simulators, SIMNET special mapsheet with
overlay,automated opposing forces, notional friendly forces, and an
OPORD, the platoon will execute a platoon defensive mission.
The platoon will:
1. move along the specified route - Do not go outside your boundrys
2. report contact and execute appropriate actions on contact
3. engage enemy forces with direct fires
4. assault Objective Dog and occupie for minimum 5 minutes in a defensive position oriented South. Report Objective taken.
5. report all line crossings.
Fail either of the above tasks and you will flunk the test.
The tank platoon performs a movement to contact as one platoon within a company team.The platoon leader receives the company OPORD from the Co (Tm) commander and prepares for operations. The platoon moves from the TAA along designated routes, crosses the LD/LC, and continues to maneuver untill contact with enemy. When the platoon makes contact it performs actions on contact. The platoon then performs fire and maneuver to close with and assault the enemy position. The platoon then consolidates and reorganizes on the
objective and prepares to continue the mission.
You can opt to play this either as gunner or TC. All routes are scripted untill north of PL AXE where the platoon are in company wedge. You will then have to move the company on your own.

Scenario based on the Tactical Vignette 99-1 including some random red stuff and blue routes for all units. Opt to controll either one, two, three or non of the blue Tank Teams.
Scenario based on the Tactical Viginette 99-1. Mission is to attack to secure a bridge as followup on a successfull brigade attack. You controll the brigades reserve consisting of two tank teams and one mech team. In all 6 tank platoons and 3 mech platoons.
Training lessons once done by DConner - dusted off, bridges repaired and M1A1's changed to Leopard 2A5DK's. Teaches the student about movement and defence in company size via small scenarios and briefings.
