Excellent scenario, it took me a minute to sort things out! I have passed it on to one of my friends who has WinMBT in Israel.

Here is an excellent article about the IDF in Gaza which might help in fine-tuning your scenario:

http://yaacovlozowick.blogspot.com/2...-thinking.html

Here is a quote that might help:

Quote:
I'm no more informed than the rest of you, but allow me to suggest what may be happening (this is pure conjecture). As described above, at this stage of attrition the Hamas men are almost on their own, perhaps in small groups. They're tired and frightened, or at least, tired and very tense. They've been under fire for ten days, most of which were filled with frustrated anticipation: even assuming they've been raring for a fight the whole time, it has been slow in coming and doesn't appear all that imminent even now. Their leaders are out of sight, their closer commanders may also be gone. They realize that the tunnel they intended to use to resupply has been bombed, nor are many reinforcements likely to come. All this would still be alright if only the IDF infantry would walk into their carefully prepared traps. But the IDF isn't doing that. Instead, it's inching forward. Its infantry seems to have excellent intelligence about each building; instead of racing forward like an elephant into a booby-mined trap, it fights for a building, kills some of the defenders but captures others, interrogates them about the other buildings on the street and only then moves forward to the next one.

That was a conscious scenario design decision; because the Israelis as far as I know are using only precision guided munitions in regards to aircraft dropped munitions -- they may be using 250 pound SDBs right now, I've seen reports to that extent by Strategypage.
Good Point.

However, perhaps the 500 pound paveways might be better than the 1000 pounders


Here's a corrected TXT file for that scenario. You need to watch where you put the * .

Indeed ! If I have to listen to one more hypocritical , Bleeding Heart Liberal " World leader " moaning about the Israeli's I'm going to puke. Odd how very quiet they were all these months as Hamas launched hundreds of rockets into Israel.

I don't image the British would be "patient" if the rockets were hitting London or the French if they were hitting Paris.

It seems to certain members of the Chattering Classes only Israel needs to be "Patient" and "Show restraint"

Version 3:

Changes:

QASSAM :-P

Don's corrected briefing file included.

Israeli troop costs per squad are now 100, not 47; don't lose these guys.

Israeli F-16Is now carry 2 x 500 lb LGBs and 2 x 1,000 lb LGBs. Pick your choice of BOOM!

Israelis lose their UAV; I felt it revealed too much of enemy positions early on, considering this is a very small map.

Israeli Commander now has access to 2 x 155mm tubes and one FO squad.

Israeli APCs are now Azcharits, not Classicals; apparently a lot of Azcharits are in the Golani Brigade (whcih is attacking into the Strip now), and in general in the west bank and gaza areas...

Israeli APCs are now cross-attached to the Paratroop company hq.

The HAMASholes have been beefed up, and the Israelis have all their tech toys back.

I just got a decisive victory. I lost 21 men and had an APC immobilized. About have of my men were lost in a friendly fire incident with the 155s. Crap!

Then you got even more real results - AFAIK out of 5 IDF dead so far in the ground op, 4 were killed in a "blue-on-blue" (and Golani Brigade CO and XO were injured in the same incident - the CO refused MEDEVAC, so probably only lightly wounded, but still...)

Ryan, I haven't had a chance to play this yet we're up to our ears in patch work ATM but somewhere on the forum someone mentioned that the Merkava Mk 4 are being held back ATM and it's the earlier Merkavas like the Baz that are being used now.

Here's a very good article about the tanks in Gaza:

I liked the scenario very much and look foreward to more of the same.

Well done with the scenario. I think perhaps Hamas stil needs more forces. I got a decisive victory with 15 men lost. 194 Hammas morons bought it though, so i think its OK. A good noumber of those thanks to forgetting to call-off an artillery strike. One of My Mk4s was dead in the center of the bombardment...It survived but somehow lost 3 men(?)One of my Achzarit APCs got immobilized on a mine(Yes, I drove the Aczarit through a building ) Those nests were hard to get. Very fun scenario.
