... to enjoy this terrain and unit mod better I quickly put together three scenarios loosely based on the original AIW situations:
Situation B-1 Bir Gifgafa
November 2, 1956: En route to the Suez Canal, the Israeli 7th
Armored Brigade is intercepted by the Egyptian 1st Armored Brigade.
Situation S-4 Jenin
June 6, 1967: The Jordanian 25th Infantry Brigade and 12th Independent Tank Battalion defend Jenin against an attack by the Israeli Peled Division.
Situation S-12 Marjayou
Some Time In Future: An Israeli Armored Brigade advances into Lebanon opposed by an Arab force of Syrians, Palestinians, and Lebanese.
The last AIW situation, published in 1977 when AIW came out, got some attention later in 1982 as the actual Israeli intervention into Lebanon followed this situation pretty much to the letter... Wonder what wargames the IDF staff had played at the time?
Very quickly put scenarios together indeed.
I used the historic OoBs available in CS Middle East Organization Editor, rather than went for the true original force mixes exactly.
Also, I omitted all Air strikes, and did not provide any smoke either. Tank action battles they are!
Maps used in scenarios are originally done by Alan Arvold in his Ode To AIW scenario sets for Divided Ground game. I simply removed any Rough, Hammada and Sand terrain he's included in his designs to replace Ridges, while I simply put Sand Dunes in place for Ridges too.
Victory conditions were very quickly put together as well. Don't take them too seriously
I hope you enjoy this little tribute or walk in the memory lane.
I sure enjoyed putting it together!
