Die Festung Hamburg – France POMCUS Committed!

As usual, we were keeping a small strategic reserve in Europe earmarked for emergencies and counterattacks.…..Tonight, SACEUR ordered to commit a significant part of it to the front.

Please be aware that:

  1. The equipment will be airlifted from France. Deployment to non-European fronts can be expensive (40+ Euros)
  2. France POMCUS is out of Field Manuals (the 8-pages examples booklet). The original booklet is downloadable here, and to make up for its absence each box will contain one extra 98×75 cm map of NORTHAG Sector 1, useful for planning / reserve / War Room poster.

SITREP UPDATE 20230130 1531ZT: Fighting definitively stopped on the whole front. There’s no survivors.

The Dogs of War – European POMCUS Committed

As already happened last year, we were keeping a small The Dogs of War strategic reserve in Europe, earmarked for future conventions…..Needless to say, no convention is in sight, so part of the reserve is now committed to the front!

Also, please be aware that this equipment is shipped from Europe. CONUS and Canada should expect higher than usual shipping costs due to Soviet activity in North Atlantic.

SITREP 20210323 0734ZT: A Sukhoi-24 strike destroyed the depot. No more reserve equipment is available.
