When we left the action the second wave of Warpact helis had clattered on to the table. It can now be revealed that the LZ (chosen according to their pre-game plan) put them down just aft of the French reinforcements! This could get messy.
Very messy. The paras issue forth from the helis, accompanied by their Sagger platoon.
As the paras open fire the Mi-1 gunship swoops to suppress the AA battery.
This was the most impressive French artillery stonk. It killed a figure from each stand. And some French armoured cars....
Less impressive was this atrocity perpetrated by the same French gunners. And just when that ambulance was likely to be needed elsewhere.
Endgame. As the paras cleared away the French armour both sides agreed that the Comrades deserved their hard-fought victory. Soon Warpact armour would be crossing the bridge.
There was no shame for the French though - who with paltry forces had nearly done for the paras.
