Default WW3: Not so welcome

I think I made it just in time for deadline :V

Take one more from WW3 in 2020 series for the release.


Quote:
World War 3: Not so Welcome*
*
Date: Summer 2020*
*
Battle Location: Karlshofen, between Bremen and Hamburg, Lower Saxony, Germany*
*
Battle Type: British 12th Armoured Infantry Brigade delay against Russian Experimental Armata Brigade (+) attack*
*
*
Russia, drived by militarism and raging economic crisis launches invasion of western Europe, thus de facto starting a new world war.*
Russia is supported by it's allies: Belarus (being economically dependant) and Ukraine (that was forcefully subdued as puppet state shortly before), as well as some allies from central east. Serbia is currently looking at Russia with positive eye and Turkey openly refuses to comply with NATO treaties.*
*
This allows Russia to launch heavy invasion on Baltic States, Poland and also Romania. Militaries of those nations fight bravely but finally succumb to armoured onslaught.
*
*
*
After it is apparent to NATO that Russian Block advance will not just end on Oder river and Russians are pushing into Germany with haste, the real danger of the situation is now understood. This in turn prompts British and French to effective deploy something mode than strike aircraft operating against Russian troops on Polish soil.
*
*
Soon however, Hamburg is bypassed. Neglected Bundeswehr has only a handful defent fighting units that can contain only some axes of advance. Russian push is particularly fierce in the north, so to deny NATO access to vital German and Dutch ports.
*
*
The British Army is already operating in Germany. It was the time of airborne troops, but hours ago nearly entire 12 Armoured Infantry Brigade has landed in Wilhelshaven. They proceeded east towards Lubeck with the goal of linking up with Hamburg defenders.
*
*
Yet complications indeed occured underway.
*
*
German forces around Hamburg and drone reconneissance indicate that particularly powerful reserve was unleashed by Moscow. Russians were expecting heavy british formations of Army 2020 standard. British advance near Karlshofen, roughly 30 kilometres east of Lubeck quickly turns into desperate delaying action against a special foe. That is nothing less but experimental Armata Brigade, reinforced rapidly when in reserve. Nearly entire brigade deploys on one universal modern chassis, with a role of tank and IFV. The armour is strong and armament modern - while British Challengers were still not modernized and all schemes for it were dropped.
*
*
Commander, the situation is not good at this point, so to speak.
*
*
Your force is partly deployed around Karlshofen. Not entire of your brigade has been readied yet. You miss your heavy reconneissance, the Queen Elizabeth's Own Royal Lancers. Instead however, we have managed to ship in Queen's Own Yeomanry's A Squadron (Army Reserve) of light reconneissance. Besides, your brigade consists of Royal Tank Regiment, The 1st Battalion, The Royal Welsh Regiment on Warrior 2000 as well as The 1st Battalion, Royal Mercians, also on Warriors 2000. The 1st Regiment of Royal Horse Artillery is deploying on your rear as we speak, they should be ready shortly. 9th (Plassey) Battery Royal Artillery is however your only force capable of decent AA cover assigned to your brigade. We are giving Russians a beating in the air, but they are still capable of launching some ground strikes. Germans were supposed to provide som extra cover, but here we come to the problem we are facing right now.
*
*
There was a mutiny in Glinstedt. Less than an hour ago, German territorial force company that was suppossed to provide us additional infantry support rebelled and turned our weapons against us. To make matters worse, Welsh are reporting they spotted Russian uniformed troops, right under our nose. We do not know what caused the incident, but we suspect the command of German company might have been politically pro-Russian oriented and the war is not currently going well for us, though we can slowly hear the Russians panting. Nevertheless, the incident is currently considered major and 3rd (United Kingdom) Division demanded Luftwaffe to cease any support for our brigade in order to limit the risks of further possible incidents. US Air Force is coming in to plunge the gap, but their aircraft must be redirected, thus we face only limited cover for roughly and hour or so. German Anti-Aircraft weapons has also been turned away, but some German section commanders informed they have nothing to do with any incidents and they will provide support regardless of doubt and opposition. Commander, it is your choice on what to do with them should they arrive due to stoppages and issues we have encountered.
*
*
Anyway, our rough defensive plan is as follows. We have deployed around Karlshofen. We are tank heavy formation and we have ample amount of ATGM. We can take on Armata Brigade head on commander and be victorious, but Russian commanders appear to know it too. They are advancing in two very strong, armoured columns, along Langenhausen and Forstort-Anfang. We instead want them deployed around Augustendorf. Between Augustendorf and Karlshofen there are boglands used for peat extraction and export, as well as numerous deep irigation channels. It will be hard for tanks to maneuver and enemy will have nowhere to hide. But so far Russians are aiming for punch-like breakthough in semi-urban environment probably precisely in order to avoid what we want. We hade deployed our forward elements to stop them, but we must attempt to cause enough damage to make them believe it is better to switch for line advance.
*
*
SPECIAL VICTORY CONDITIONS:*
12th Armoured is one of the strongest heavy units in Europe. Try to keep at least 2/3 of your fighting force in one piece. In any instance when enemy scores more than 24 000 points, consider the battle a draw, but if your casualties will exceed 32 000 points consider the battle your defeat.

Rather "amusing" watching the Challengers and Armatas bounce shells off each other. I'm not far into it but I'm starting to wonder if ammo is going to become a serious problem.

It's funny, but the last time I had this kind of problem was in France 1940 scenarios, when Panzer IIIs were playing the bouncing game with H39s. History goes in circles and all that jazz...

All top tier modern MBT's are vulnerable to one another from the side so a toe to toe slugfest is not the answer

The OOB's have evolved and been revised. It does not affect this scenario as it is fictional anyway but the Warrior 2000 is now the Warrior WCSP and does not come into service ( maybe.........) until 2023 and the T-14 Armatas not until mid 2022 ( maybe.........)

Technically there is a single T-14 Armata experimental battalion near Moscow. So technically those tanks are deployed. Technically, of course...

Exclamation Re: WW3: Not so welcome

The whole game exists on the supposition of conflict that has not ( yet......) occurred for the most part so what you have there is OK.

There were some Icon updates so you will see some when the patch is released. Nothing major for yours though.

We are kinda-sorta looking at an April 2 release now but as with everything else in the world right now......things could change

We are all at home right now, at least in Europe
I am taking a short break for several PBEMs to finish and I will make some more. Second British from WW3 will come rather soon as I will borrow the map this time.
