One Nordic BG (1xDK MECH BTN(+),1xSWE ARM BTN) will defend against Warsaw Pact forces (1 TANK REG(+)) landing in

Ystad and trying to linkup with Russian forces attacking down from Norrköping.

This will run the first Sunday of each month.

The first mission will be a recon meeting engagement which will be different from most of the others that will follow!

The outcome of each battle will decide start positions and which forces you as a CO will have available.

OPFOR will get a 3 to 1 advantage.

The CO of both sides will receive a scenario file with only their side so they can do planning and map recon.

From the second mission the Forces will be entirely decided by the CO of each team.

We will need a Blue CO for the first mission asap (He will not be the CO for the whole campaign).

We will need a CO and a small group of OPFORs to control the Red Forces

Further stuff like rules and TO & E on this link:

Hi Mark

Excellent but

This will run the first Sunday of each month.

So the next session in that campaign will be the 3rd April 2016

But we will be running another Scenario on the 13th the:

UK Armour 13th March 2016 - Defense of Hameln (big map)

This might become a series without fixed dates we haven't decided yet as we want to see how the first goes!

You will be welcome to that its a big map with live opponents (Russian)

We will hopefully see you there

This is UK armor session for March 6th!!

Its the start of our mini campaign. First mission is a recon head to head that will determine the next mission starting locations. Each side CO will be PM'ed orders and map.

There will be time before mission start to make plan on map.

This will be test template for further missions hopefully. The Google doc link has TOE and rules for both sides of campaign and will be updated after each 1. sunday in march.

Since this is duck and I first try at this comments are welcome or even PMs with suggestions.

Sign up for 6th is open 8)

yes - there is 2 plt of heavy recon for blue and for the opfor there is plenty of vehicles.

So just state blue or red. (this is a blue vs red but with emphasis on blue.

1. Gonna be a 4 plt (picked by blue co) vs 12plt red (picked by red co)

2. Of course if anyone wants to play red they are welcome but blue slots will have priority hopefully (since thats what we been doing since december:clin:)

That is 8 units in 1st platoon? Give a star if i counted right :)

Yes but that's because we have removed the PLT COs extra Command Merc 240 he and the PLT SG normally lead a section each from the 2 Leos, then 3rd in command leads the M113 with a INF squad, and lastly there are the Mortars, and of course the 4 Recon Mercs work in a buddy pairing mostly with cover from the Tanks(IRL they have 9) .

So pretty much the smallest unit with all arms.

This places a big responsibility on the PLT CO and PLT SG which both often work separated to cover for either pair of Mercs or for the INF !

Any chance of previewing the map?

Yes follow this link and read away

This article from July-August 1991 ARMOR provides an overview on the organisation and tactics of the Danish reconnaissance platoon which may be helpful: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/71686353/How%20Denmark%27s%20Army%20Uses%20Light%20Unarmored%20Vehicles%20for%20Reconnaissance_Armor_Jul-Aug%201991.pdf

The M41 DK-1 was replaced by the Leopard 1 DK.
