Rat Patrol From Fort Bragg Turn 22 (end turn).
General Fitzgerald, Gwenn, was giving report to Mr. President at Fort Bragg, USA....
....."And, Mr. President the troops from Slovenia, like your wife, has destinguished in fight and they are curently looking into south Poland across Czech mountains...."
Mr. President : "Who needs this crap? Give me reports on important details on all fronts from Norway to Caucaus...."
General Fitzgerald, Gwenn, blushed and cleared his throat "Yes, Mr. President, I deeply apologize.... Well, seems that we are winning this series of battles, but I suggest caution as WP is still very, very strong....Their tank and mechanized units are horror to attack, only on really good conditions they could be attacked... After all this advance we will need to rest troop, rotate tired troops, find God damn reinforcements, all fronts need it...
Well, in Northern Norway theathre, we have destroyed remaining pockets of enemy resistance, and we are advancing toward Leningrad and Archangelsk. There is a very long road ahead and supply situation is very bad. Enemy will maybe transfer troops from Leningrad area, we have seen movement of 5th Guards Tank Army, hmmm, are they heading our way?
Our B52 are keeping on hammering enemy fleets, we destroyed so many Russian warships, hard to count... They are excellent machines, but we have also some Greek A-7 Corsairs , they are stationed in Athens and they are also good for going against enemy navy, hmmm, maybe in Black Fleet, enemy have tree fleets stationed in one spot, maybe AA defense will be higher so our losses, we must think about it... Corsairs have 360 antishipping capability in TOAW Battle Simulator 4.0.
Well, in Northern Germany there was only one Russian attack on our positions and we were saved by timely of battle entering of one UK Tank Division that was close by with Tactical Support orders....
Finally our brave defenders of West Berlin after long struggle and constant shelling, scarce supply, well, West Berlin was captured by enemy, but we will recapture it (one day, enemy is still too strong here for direct attack, either we must somehow attrite him or wait for his foolish move or wait to expend his strength attacking our fortified positions...). It is real wonder that it held for so much, they could storm it long time ago, but they took their time.
Czechoslovakia is all cleared from enemy troops and we have advanced to new stop line, preferably on hills or mountains or in wooded terrain because of defensive bonus of terrain.
We must rest our troop for now here, and it would be quite foolish to overextend. The enemy here was classicaly beaten, even Guderian would be proud...
Just so, in Hungary, almost same situation, we have cleared whole country and kept on advancing but we will also stop here for now, we took some Ukrainian terrain and in Romania. We will keep pressure towards Romania, for two reasons: Here we can advance because of big strongpoint of WP in Czernovitze, we want to destroy it and we are helping Turkish and Greek troops in south Romania that were hard pressed but now relieved, and we can actually advance on this flank without too much threat and we want also to occupy good defensive positions on Carpathians mountains...
In south Romania at last stable situation, for some time it was very critical but our attacks up north drawed some Romanian strength there so we have cleaned the mess here, by destroying encircled enemy units in our rear... We are resting some troops after long fight, they need some rest, and we cannot advance until attack in the north draw some strength there, then we will have easier job south of that battle...
We have made limited offensive to clear Burgas port from enemy units... They are not so strong here, only one nasty mech Romanian division, well against so big targets we will have losses but not so much if we attack it with sufficient forces. We were attacking their airfield in Burgas with our Lance rockets for some time and we destroyed many planes that way. We have same targets of airfields in Germany and in Batumi on Black Sea.
Speaking about Batumi, well that battle would be very interesting. We have surrounded enemy, 3 Mountain Divisions, 1 Security Div, 1 Tank and one MRD division (like tank unit, same beast). They are on mountains so we will try to starve them out a little bit before final assault. Very interesting battle, and we want to avoid too much losses here. Nobody can save them and I think that they cannot brake the cauldron. It is not still iron tight but, well we will see his response. In the region of Kirovabad we will defend for now, we don't have big forces here, that is central Caucaus, near Tbilisi, which will be also taken but not just now.
In the region of Baku, on Caspian Sea, also, very interesting battle is starting to take shape.
Those reconstituded Iraq units, and they can be very dangerous, we know it because we have destroyed them already once, well, they have started to advance like mad bulls toward mountains. In that sector we have only Iranian troops, of low quality and it is a question will they held out. We have ordered them to entrench and to fight to death (ignore losses).
But maybe we can cut those Iraqui units by our forces in the north that were advancing toward Baku after capturing those mountain passes by daring air drop. So we made two big group, one is heading south toward mountains to help Iran forces there and other will keep on advancing toward Baku to the east, itself, and try to draw enemy counterattack toward themselves. Southern group is reinforced by some transport helicopters (they bring defense of 12 there lovely). We will see if we will have sufficient forces for this maneuver but if we weaken Russian defenses south of Baku we have there ready forces to advance north toward Baku itself. But those forces cannot assault directly big concentration of 4-5 divisions so that's why we want to distract enemy to weaken this position and when we create fluid battle we have better chances. We also made attack toward
Krasnovodsk also on Caspian Sea and toward Ashkhabad and Mashhad. We lost one Finish air unit but we saved one by transfering it to Sweden.
