Rat Patrol from Fort Bragg vol 3 Turn 9 beginning
Meanwhile..... The guy with big white beard was typing something into his palm computer called Twitter version 4.5 "ah, that fakenews media, doesn't see a victory even when
it is brought under their nose....."....
A secretary called Pamela McWunderson entered room.... and she said "Mr. President are
you ready for some first aid saving life by mouth lesson?"
A president waved his hand, "Later, bring me General McFerguson"
When General Mc Ferguson entered big oval room, Mr. President just said "so, it will not be an easy fight? Can you report on present situation on all NATO fronts from Northern Norway to Southern Iraq?"
General McFerguson started to present report: "Well, Mr. General some of our plans came out rather well, but some fumbled pretty disastrouly... But, it's a long fight and some of our errors we will be able to correct. In Northern Norway some strange situation, Warsaw Pact did some airborne landing on two places but we promptly destroyed the paratroopers with our own SAS forces. He did not attack our most exposed positions which is strange. He lately pushed one mechanised division into swamps... Hmmmm.. We are bringing Swedes and Norwegians by rail here and we will defend this area vigorously. Some reinforcements were shipped by sea (even from Ireland, USA, England, Iceland...).
In Northern Germany, our EuroCorps fumbled gloriously, yes we did pushed Russians back and destroyed lots of their tanks but we also lost more than 130 Leopards II when we tried to destroy remnants of Russian 3 divisions but they were in fortified zone so we had lots of losses, in combat helicopters as well. But, situation here is for now stable and we have fortified whole border except one mentioned area. We will try some defensive action here. Let them come.
In Austria, first WP scattered some Austrian and Swiss troops and then we counterattacked, situation is stable for the present but we will need to send more troops here. Russians badly mauled one of our Swiss divisions that was fortified and on mountain and we had much losses, strangely this time they didn't have any losses (hmmmm very strange).
In the Balkans we took Tirana capitol of Albania by daring sea assault, city was empty. Soon merry Albanians and Kosovar joined our ranks, so we got 3 new militia units down there.
We must clean this mess here asap, and capture whole this area. It will be hard because we noticed some Rumanians units coming and WP counterattacked on few places and pushed us back. But I think that NATO here will handle the situation. Turks have destroyed one whole Bulgarian army and pushed back that annoying SCUD unit. Our right flank is weak and we must send some units here to contain Romanians (they entered into Bulgaria and made contact but still didn't attacked).
In Northern Iraq, Iraquians forces are attacking Turkish forces in the north and they surrounded one Turkish brigade, I think that they will wipe them out. We must help Turks here soon enough.
But battle in middle Iraq is turning in our favour. Some Jordanians commandos were droped by aircraft and assisted in encircling some Iraq forces in the desert SW of Baghdad. Baghdad is captured by daring attack and we destroyed some Iraq HQ's and helicopters in the process. We still need to destroy some 7 or 8 Iraq divisions that are surrounded east of Baghdad. And we also march north to assist Turks and destroy last remaining Iraq corps in Kirkuk, Mosul area."
Our losses till now.... Damn, 3 or 4 attack helicopters have evaporated, Enterprise planes are gone, and some Iranian units that strangely are coming back as reconstituted units in Egypt which is unplayable so for now at least they are out of play"...
