An overview of the battlefield.
RAF Harriers were in action trying to discourage our glorious engineers...
...and failing miserably!
A Soviet airmobile battalion was inserted across the canal on a crucial road junction.
When more Brits - including tanks - appeared, more air attacks followed by Fitters...
Back at the canal, the defenders of the Motherland were in the process of building another bridge,
while tank and AT units laid down covering fire.
By now the crossings were pretty secure and is was a case of keeping up the pressure on the capitalists.
British Lynx helicopters were in action too - but were soon swept from the sky.
A British counterattack gave the paras some worrying moments but luckily the decadent
imperialists' morale broke and they were unable to press home the attack.
