Drive on Scheissenburg - part 1

This was another playtest of Little Cold Wars and was played on the floor at Sheffield club on 18 June.  A Forbodian force was tasked with conducting an armed reconnaissance of the approaches to Scheissenburg, prior to an assault on the town by a Motor Rifle Battalion.  The enemy was a French force in approximately battalion strength, led by Martin and Tim C.
Above can be seen the vast array of force available to the Forbodians - played by John and Jerry. Clockwise from bottom right - a tank company with T-55, a recce co with PT-76, the follow-on motor rifle battalion with BTR-70, and the force HQ with traffic police UAZ-469, AT plt with BRDM-1s and the CO in BRDM-2.
The field of battle.  The Forbodians were arriving from the east.  1km in the game is 36 inches.
Forbodian tanks arrive at the canal bridge....
...causing the French engineers - who had been hoping for time to wire it for demolition - to flee in their rather stylish SUMB truck.
John - in suitable headgear - demonstrates the correct method for conducting AT fire, by dropping a dart on a target.
Another view of the Forbodian armoured host.

Coming next:  AT missiles - do they work?
