haven't posted any AAR's for this in a bit, sorry. I have been playtesting this though and have decided that Scuds are needed, so will be using the V-1 rockets in the game as Scuds, with the approprate picture attached. I have been playing this for a year in game time and while Armenia is suffering from Raw Material shortages, lost the important city of van and the surronding mines she has been able to hold her own so far. Things did get dicy though when the Islamic States declared war and so opened a second front in support of Turkey.
Now it is September 28th 1968 one year into the war between Turkey and Armenia. Armenia has finally been able to break through the lines due to a cease-fire with the Islamic States there by freeing up some needed reinforcments, and is now advancing on her second major objective " Erzurum" but taking heavy casualties from the Turkish defenders in the city. Mountain warfare is rather nasty in this game and has caused some major casualties on both sides. One major setback for the Turks is that the northern area prevents the Turks from using her armour to any real effectivness and so is mainly artillery duels and infantry assaults. Another setback is that there is so few places to build airbases and so Turkish airpower cannot be brought to any real effect.
The Israeli front is now quiet with the defeat and conquest of Palestine (Jordan) but she is still at war against the Turks and Islamic States. The Islamic States not being able to do anything about this, hence the need for Scuds being added into the scenario. The only major battles have come from the Israeli's invading Cyprus in order to help the Armenians out. Which this has done, major naval battle took place between the Israeli's and the Turks ending in a major Israeli naval victory. Thereby causing the Turks to put more resources into building more ships thereby causing her to ( Turks) to use more Raw material than she brings in everyturn.
Israeli forces have been able to capture all of Cyprus with the exception of the southern most tip, due to Turkish naval infantry reinforcements arriving. Israel was not able to sink their transports in time, but was finally able to sink them after they dropped off Turkish reinforcements. The Israeli navy did take a beating though due to Turkish torpedo bombers devistating her naval forces. Israel also has not been able to knock out the Turkish airbases in the south, thereby not being able to stop the air-resupply of Turkish forces still fighting in Cyprus. Naval supply has been cut though. Other than this fighting the Israeli front has been quiet. Both Iraq and Egypt signed cease-fire agreements with Israel.
Egypt signed the cease-fire agreement due to two reasons, 1. she was allied with both Saudi Arabia and Syria. Saudia Arabia was becoming concerned with the buildup of forces along her border with the Islamic States and Syria was concerend with the buildup of Iraqi forces along her border. Egypt being allied with both nations could not fight a three front war and so came the cease-fire with Israel. 2, her armed forces were taking a heavy beating at the hands of the Israeli's and they had virtually lost all territory they had gained in the Sinai. Once the cease-fire was in place Egypt began rearming, creating the " Army of Arabia" for use in Saudi Arabia. The Field army command would be used to defend Egypt proper and send forces to Syria for her defense.
Iraq: after the cease-fire with Israel, Iraq began rearming as well for their war with Syria. Baghdad dreams of a greater Arab nation consisting of Syria, Iraq and Saudi Arabia and so for now has set her sites onto Syria. this will bring them into conflict with the Islamic States and possibly Israel in the near future. As it stands now Iraq has invaded Syria triggering a war involving Syria, Egypt on the one side and Iraq on the other. Saudi Arabia had declared war on Iraq as well but she cannot fight a two front war, and since Iraq was not prepared either for a two front war, both nations accepted the others request for a peace accord. Iraq has taken the northern sections of Syria ( which holds all of Syria's oil reserves) but Syria is proving to be a harder nut to crack, even though the Syrian armed forces are mainly just infantry. Egypt now has 8 infantry Brigades and 2 armoured Brigades inside Syria helping with the defense.
Saudi Arabia: The Saudi's seeing a major buildup of armoured/Infantry forces on her border with the Islamic States has now began a re-arming of her own and has been able to mobilize some infantry into a 3rd corps specifically designed to protect her border with the Islamic States. Egypt has now landed a total of 11 Infantry Brigades and 2 Armoured Brigades into Saudi Arabia along with a major air contengent of 4 fighter groups, and 2 fighterbomber groups.
