Hi,

TURN 5: The RECCE plane see some troops...

We regroup and plan our attack.



RECCE troops open the way followed by tanks and infantries.

The fight begin!

French infantries are tought because:

A lot of mens (13) in each sections;
A lot of bazookas units and in infantries sections;
Their trenchs give them a good protection.

More infantries are there than expected; the plane didnt saw everything...

We push hard, move foward, but we loose many mens and waste a lot of munitions.

Mines are discovered... Their 81mm mortars start firing...

The fight is hard and we losed a first tank.



Thank you,

-Luc-

Dug in infantry can be very difficult to dislodge in WinSPMBT; nearly impossible to suppress and they seem to hit at least twice as often/hard as the attackers. I frequently find it necessary to resupply ammo after using everything a platoon (often two) has suppressing just one dug-in position enough I can get an infantry unit to it and assault ... seems to be the only reliable way to dislodge them. On rare occasions one will break and leave it's position or be destroyed by fire prior to an assault but it's not something to count on.

Unhappy Re: CCCP vs NATO long campaign (1948-1991)

Hi,

Youre right Suhiir...

Turn 5-37:

The Soviet forces put lot of pressure on the French.

The fight is difficult but we can advance a little bit each turn.

French mortars are deadly; an infantry section reinforcement and a AA unit are destroyed.

We spot smoke and call for air support: the sky is clear!? Few turn later, Il-10s drop 2 100kg bombs on each mortar.



On the ground, things are difficult: we loose another tank and many mens.

Soviet engineer open a way in mines field under heavy fire from the enemy on their flank.

Troops are exhausted and artillery will soon run out of ammunitions.

Carefully, we reach the small town who was almost empty; we take positions and will wait for reinforcement...

Unfortunately, the tank of Major Baturin run in mines and being imobilized.



Thank you,

-Luc-

Hi,

Turn 38-END

Small town secured and soviet reinforcement arrived: we can move to our next objective: crossroad to the west.



After we sized the crossroad, french start attacking!

They put a lot of presure everywhere we are, espacially on the small town we captured.

We lost 2 infantry sections, 2 White scout cars, 2 MGs and a GAZ-69 during that very hard fight.

Major Baturin, 1 infantry section, the FO team and the crew of ammo crate resist; they are warheroes...

At the crossroad, this is the same thing... but the fresh troops, with tank support, still in position.

After that, everything become quiet and we sized every objectives points...





That one was hard...

Thank you,

-Luc-

Well done. Interesting.

When I have to go through such defenses I usually place smoke in two parallel lines crossing the defenses and bomb (arti) the **** out of the units in that "corridor". With a couple of turns of heavy bombing and a couple of fast but good against infantry, vehicles/apcs, I approach the "corridor" and try to make the enemy troops use any will to fight. Then I bring in the heavy equipment and just break through with ease. Just make sure when you approach your units to shift the artillery to up and down of the "corridor" so that it suppresses any enemy units thinking of moving towards it, but not close enough to be a risk to your own units crossing it. If you have any infantry available (scouts or engineers) with those first vehicles you approach, they can help to hold the now empty trenches even after your tanks have crossed. But that's just me.

Lightbulb Re: CCCP vs NATO long campaign (1948-1991)

Hi,

Thank you Wdll, I'll try that next time!

My analysis of the battle:

My biggest surprise was the resistance offered by the French infantry. The large number of soldiers and anti-tank weapons was beyond expectations. Removing these troops from their trenches was more difficult tahn expected and required a lot of effort and ammunition...

The absence of anti-aircraft weapons was also a surprise. This allowed me to use the airspace without danger. Destruction by IL-10 of the enemy artillery was very helpful. The spotter plane helped a lot too.

After two battles, I realize that the opponent neglect some elements for a large number of troops... strange ...

Still, the battle has been hard.

Thank you,

-Luc-

Hi,

Location: Stadthagen;
Date: 1948/11;
Enemy: Great Britain;
Mission: Meeting;
Visibility: 15;
Turns: 90;

No big change in my TO&E:

After some reading on this site, I chose an SMG section for every infantry platoon...

Unfortunately, no air support available.

Map of battlefield:



Soviet forces:



Main forces will follow the east-west road to te first village.

A second group, smaller, will capture and defend the village in the south.

The departure city will be strengthened and artillery will stay there.

Our objectif: Capture the first village and the central hills.

After that, we will see...

Thank you,

-Luc-

Hi,

FIRST CONTACT! Turn 5:

UK scout cars (Lynx) are discovered in the first town.

Our T-34/85 destroy them quickly... and wait for infantry support.



Turn 6-9:

Our tanks and infantry move foward.

Few gunned scout cars (Staghound) are destoyed and ennemy infantry are discovered.

Soviet soldiers take defensive position along the road.

The 76mm and 82mm shells begin to fall on the enemy.

BAD SURPRISE! A Centurion MK2!



Our best tankcrew ( Major Baturin) move to the south, taking advantage of the topography, to ambush the tank.

The enemy tank is far superior than ours but... from the side, we still have a chance.

I'm a little bit nervous...

Thank you,

-Luc-

Thumbs up Re: CCCP vs NATO long campaign (1948-1991)

Hi,

Turn 10-15:

The ambush works well, it allows the destruction of two Centurions MK2.

However, many others appear on the front line at close range; we are quickly overwhelmed.

***

Soviet second group sized the small village in the south of the map.

UK 3 inchs motars start firing and we put our 152mm D-1 on them.



UK tanks are superior: their frontal armor resist to the regular AP round of ours T-34/85s.

With only 6 special round in our tanks, the situation become quickly critical...

We have to retreat in the city and ambush these tanks with RPGs!

Unfortunately, things will be different.

During an harsh fight, we lose successively our PT-34 and 2 T-34/85s.

Some Crowells appears on the hill! Hopefully, one of our last 2 tanks take care of them.

Major Baturin try to destroy some Centurion but its dificult...



Thank you,

-Luc-

Hi,

Turn 16-28:

After fierce fighting, UK tanks are burning and infantry is routed.

Our infantry, espacially our engineers with flamethrower and satchels, were very brave and efficient.

Unfortunately, we lost 2 SMG sections and the hero of the Soviet Union, Major Baturin.

After that, we can regroup move forward.



Some units are met and destroyed easily.

SURPRISE! UK HQ on the road again! It's not the first time...



We toke care of them...

Thank you,

-Luc-
