Currently gaming this scenario by Piotor Benki as the Polish side, Very good game so far but, according to the briefing there are no NATO reinforcements during the 42 terms (21 days) of the scenario. Fair enough, NATO members are bickering over Article 5

However an extended version in which NATO heavy forces do deploy at some stage (and the Russians get appropriate reinforcements) would be most welcome as exploring the ramifications of a present day NATO v Russia clash in Poland and the Baltic States is a most plausible scenario. Hopefully, in the real world this will remain "sci-fi on the Vistula"

The release of NATO reinforcements might be randomised with an increasing chance as time goes by to represent the political situation between NATO members. Possibly the EU might release forces separately from NATO (or not) There might also be a chance that Russia uses chemical weapons and that either side might use nukes escalating to a tactical or strategic exchange. Also there might be distractions elsewhere in the world that distract either or both sides or cause an escalation

For some reason the forum isb't allowing me to post links today but the site is called The operational art of war series alternate wars. There are a large bumber of scenarios from Operational Art of War 3 scenarios. The one you want should be in the Post Cold War Category

Yes. That site. It seems to be a very good scenario but one point I do bot agree with the scenario on is that NATO would not respond for three weeks when some NATO forces are already there. Perhaps special events might turn on the flow of reinforcements.

Within the duration of this scenario (3 weeks) we might add on

1 82nd Airborne and 101st Airmobile Divisions
2 The Franco German brigade
3 Armoured brigades/divisions from France, Germany and the UK
4 US Marines
5 Units from other NATO states we don't usually see in scenarios og Danish, Italian, Spanish, Czech)

That can trigger the deployment of additional Russian reinforcements

In an extended version (say a 6 - 8 week war) the US heavy division arrives and we get to play with M1A2s, Bradleys and Strykers, a much expanded air war and further Russian reinforcements. Special events might initiate Russian chemical weapons and the possibility of nuclear escalation

Also perhaps a variant with some additional NATO forces available at the start to help in the defence of the Suwalki Gap. More of a light tripwire force with a minimal heavy armour contingent.
