The background to the war was outlined in a previous post. The Anglophobian flotilla soon found a likely looking bit of coast and quickly landed a Naval Battalion and an armoured train. Unusually good planning had ensured that the train would run on the narrow gauge Vulgarian track. Confirmation that this was indeed Vulgaria soon arrived in the shape of a shell from a coastal defence gun (above) which was accompanied by a local defence battalion.
|This was the first outing for my armoured train...|
...which also provided the first Anglophobian casualty - after a direct hit from the enemy gun!
|The train soon got it's own back by killing a pair of the defenders|
As a second battalion (left) landed, the train's infantry company was detached to occupy a strategically placed ruin
|The action ashore was followed by the crews of two gunboats|
|The Vulgarian artillery fire took a steady toll of the attackers...|
...while the train made life in the open untenable for the local defence troops. It was soon being referred to as 'The STUG'.
The Rifle Company from the train were soon seeking photo opportunities in the ruins
As the sailors advanced it became clear that something would have to be done about the Vulgarian gun
