We rejoin the action on turn 5, and as usual I'll let the photos and captions tell the story.
An heroic Motor Rifle Battalion finally charges through the border minefield and after passing a second morale check messily close assaults the defenders. Off camera a rather less heroic MRB has suffered losses in the minefield and failed a test.
Turn 6. Another Su-7 strike is rather better and sees the Greek border battalion rout. Meanwhile a second Greek battalion has arrived at the other (southern) end of the table with 3 infantry and 1 tank (M-48A5) companies.
The heroic MRB from earlier (hereafter referred to as the Guards Btl!) shoots at the fleeing Greeks and then moves south in pursuit.
Turn 7. The Greek Air Force finally shows up and a flight of F-5 attack the Guards Btl - with absolutely no effect! By this time engineers have gapped the minefields.
In the south the newly arrived Greeks have a gho at the Paras (remember them?). The Greeks suffer 3 hits, the (dug in) Paras none!
Turn 8. The scrap with the Paras continues with each side suffering 3 hits - astonishingly both pass morale tests. The Guards Btl rides to the rescue.
More Sovs trundle southwards on the road...but what's happening on the hill?
It is none other than out old chum the Greek Brigadier being surprised by - and surrendering to - a T-62 btl.
Overview - the border has quietened down.
