This is a walk through played from the Red Army perspective, it may be of help to new players playing PACT.
This Senario is a 'Meeting Engagement' where both sided are moving towards contact.
1/ First move is setup time with the OMG (Operational Manover Group, - Red Army equivalent to a Kampf Gruppe, Battle Group or Task Force) strung along the road in Assault mode, these will swing south through Ostheim and up alongside the forested hills. To roar through Willmars up north to Nordheim, might be too obvious - I'll allways choose an indirect route.
I never use Hasty movement in a combat zone, Air Strikes and Arty or even an Ambush can ruin your day, try not to stack in the open and not more than two units in any other kind of terrain or Arty will hit you.
My SP Arty will target the crossroads leading into Nordheim, nothing better to shoot at, maybe get lucky or not..
