Can you image a lone Platoon HQ team hold off a full-strength BMP-2 company for more than half hour, and claimed 3 infantry units before been destroyed? That happened in my game. I have finished a PBEM game as British, the game ended as a draw. But I got a feeling my opponent deserve a victory, he planned the bombardment well, conducted a brilliant maneuver, however his Battalion stopped by three dug-in infantry Platoon.
Scenario “Red Hammer”, it is 19:10, the turn before my move. During the Soviet turn the A Co was under concentrate fire. Then around 19:00, a T-80BV company pop out of the smoke. 3 BMP Companies followed the tank. With well planned timing every Soviet companies kept a distance at each other, so my mortar strike missed Soviet formation completely. When the Soviet turn ends the situation looks desperate, Soviet pass through the open field at the cost of 5 tanks, it looks like the 3 BMP companies have get into the last stage of charge, they have changed from a marching column into an attacking formation, each one is going to take an urban hex. 3/A Co lost every Warrior IFV and infantry squad, only a 4 men Platoon HQ team survived, 1/A Co in the middle lost all Warrior IFV, 2/A Co on the right had 1 Warrior IFV and 2 infantry squad left.
And a miracle happened, after 30min close combat 4 infantry squad, 2 HQ team and 1 IFV from A Co took out total 7 tanks, 17 BMP-2 and 28 infantry units….
