Hanover 76 cold war
« on: November 19, 2012, 05:16:03 AM »
The Battle for Hannover, West Germany, 1976

The Battlefield
The battlefield has the B214 running down the length of the table, with the British being deployed up to the half-way mark and the Soviets entering the opposite table edge using mobile deployment. The game is played down the length of the table, rather than across the width. There is a hamlet along the main road. The surrounding area is composed of open fields, interspersed with gentle hills and sparse woodland.

Before The Battle
Both sides rolled for air superiority, with the British gaining the upper hand: they had partial air superiority for the duration of the battle. The British player then elected the block of flats as the location for the ambush and left three infantry units off-table in his reserve pool. The Soviet player determined his four scheduled air strikes as follows:

Great pics but I don't think the Su-27 was in production in '76 ;)

I'm guessing they meant it as a stand-in for the Su-24 Fencer or Su-25 since Su-27s probably wouldn't operate that low over hostile armor and SPAA/SAM any way. Good attention to detail though Mirth!

I was teasing ;)  Mostly I'm jealous because I would love to play on a table like that! I love the modern stuff :)

BTW Stagger, I love that you know the Flanker wasn't a CAS/ground-attack bird.
