Early in the game the NATO forces launched quite a few recce flights, including this US Army helicopter...(photo by Bob)
...and this RAF Jaguar. (photo by Russell) Why all this effort on recce?
Because we were using hidden movement - with WARPACT battalions and NATO battlegroups being represented by flags. Some of course were decoys... (photo by Bob)
The NATO plan - no wonder they were confused! (photo by Jack)
Hostilities opened with a salvo of FROG rockets. The simulator for this is a toy called a Junior Stomp Rocket which used air to project an eight inch foam rocket to ranges of over 30 feet! The first fell embarrassingly short - nearly hitting the Party HQ! (photo by Russell)
The next was a bit better, at least landing within sight of Neue Stan Halle. It still didn't hit anything though. (photo by Russell)
