2017 - Number 53


Soviet Armor Duels with Chieftains Near Hannover

Campaign Update:
Team Yankee / Red Thunder

We are continuing our store Team Yankee Campaign (Red Thunder!) again this month, progressing through in store battles with our regular cadre of Team Yankee players. This month we moved into the third phase of the campaign, where for each battle there is a 50/50 chance of the NATO player being able to place the battle arrow, allowing a very fluid campaign situation.

Keeping with the focus in phases one and two, much of the action stayed in the north. Additional Warsaw Pact attacks focused on expanding their penetration, and in heavy action they managed to hold on to Bremen (3 victory points) and retake Hamburg South (4 victory points).

The Second Battle of Braunsweig, British Forces Advancing

They also managed to recapture Braunsweig, again cutting off Luneberg, which had just been relieved last month.

After a rough start the British forces have been particularly successful this month, defeating the first attempt to retake Braunsweig and reatking Hannover (3 victory points).

We should complete phase three next month, and be ready to resume the fighting in 2018 after the release of the new force in Stripes. The current positions are shown on the map image below.

I will post some additional shots of the other actions from phase three next time.
