Elias Nordling, Grognard Emeritus and Swedish Military Attaché to West German I Corps, reports on the assault of the Soviet 35th Motorized Rifle Division to Braunschweig, defended by 2 Panzer Brigade.
It is morning fog, which favors superior NATO optics. The Soviets try to use air for spotting targets but don’t find anything. The long distance artillery on the other hand is lucky and manages to suppress the recon battalions in the forward line. NATO air tries to disrupt the armoured columns but are ineffective.
Pact troops cross the border, but someone (themselves) have put mines and barbed wire and stuff all over the place, so the going is slow. some force marches are used to get in contact with the enemy, and one regiment takes losses from the fast tempo.
Thanks to Grognard Emeritus Lionel Martinez, we now have an alternate TDOW Booklet, including revised tables and a different layout! Not sure about the tables, but maybe it’s just me and anyway it’s an outstanding work.
FM 04-003 – Theater Level Operations is here! This Field Manual combines the released C3 modules into a single, die-hard campaign covering the 1985 NATO – Warsaw Pact conflict in West Germany. It will be updated with each new module release.
The Dogs of War is officially sold out in US / CANADA! In the good news, Noble Knight Games should have 16 copies available in a few days, and a small strategic reserve will be committed once the situation is stabilized.
