All,

1330 on 4 Aug 1990
Mini-Campaign Fight #9
TF Redleg vs FSNL 5th Company

1st Lt Ordonez is leading his TF Redleg west, attempting to breakthrough the Communist lines in order for TF Redleg and TF Razor to reunite with their Cuban comrades advancing from that direction.  This morning they assaulted the rear of the FSNL's 5th Company's positions, tossing them a beatdown and forcing them to fall back to re-group, but the Cubans weren't able to capitalize, having to move cautiously in the densely jungled hilly terrain, which allowed FSNL5 time to regroup.  Not only did the Communists regroup, they have actually staged a counterattack, so Lt Ordonez quickly shakes his men out into a hasty defense (ambush mentality!) in order to throw back their assailants.  This is a simple attack/defend scenario; the Cuban goal is to repel the enemy attack, the Communist goal is to destroy the Cuban force. 

Lt Ordonez has the assistance of his Task Group Commander, Major Fulgencio, who has attached himself to the Task Force.  Major Fulgencio is leaving Lt Ordonez in overall command of his Task Force but will assist as necessary, essentially performing as a second command stand in the game.  This proved a winning combination as Major Fulgencio was key in breaking the enemy's defense in the last fight, leading several close assaults that saw him awarded the Bronze Star w/V.
 

Cuban Marines push forward (right side of the photo) in the center, engaging an enemy outpost (top left).


The outpost is pinned (far right), but the enemy CO moves up and rallies them, bringing reinforcements.


So the Cubans move around the left flank (bottom center).


But they (top right) run into the enemy's main line of resistance (left/bottom left).


So the Cubans (far right, bottom left) try the right flank...


The tough Cuban Marines defeat the enemy's left flank (far left) and move up (center) on the enemy's center position (right).


But the Communists launch a ferocious counterattack to shore up their line!

Next up we have Captain Soares' Task Force Razor fighting a rear-guard action against the Free Leon Army's 3rd Company.  TF Razor is the other part of Task Group Fulgencio, which was cut off from friendly forces and is now fighting to break out and return to friendly lines.  Unfortunately the withdrawal was halted when FSNL5 decided to counterattack TF Redleg on Hill 261, which allowed the pursuing FLA3 to catch them.

Mini-Campaign Fight #10
TF Razor vs FLA 3rd Company

Now we have Captain Soares' Task Force Razor fighting a rear-guard action against the Free Leon Army's 3rd Company.  TF Razor is the other part of Task Group Fulgencio, which was cut off from friendly forces and is now fighting west to break out and return to friendly lines.  Unfortunately the withdrawal was halted when FSNL5 decided to counterattack TF Redleg on Hill 261, which allowed the pursuing FLA3 to catch them.

This fight is occurring west to east (right to left), with the pursuing enemy insurgents chasing the Cubans, and the Cubans starting spread across the right half of the board and having to withdraw their forces off the left table edge.


The Cuban rearguard is strung out along the left as the Communists give pursuit from the right.


The Cuban MG Team (bottom center) catches three enemy rifle teams as they enter the village (top center)Ö


And roughs them up!


The Communists try to flank the Cubans with a Technical (bottom right), so we can have the obligatory rocket shot.

Next up we have Lt Madre-Animral's Task Force Bowie in a re-fight against FSNL's 4th Company.  Earlier this morning TF Bowie defeated FSNL4 and forced them to fall back, and now they are in hot pursuit, hoping to roll them before they get a chance to recover.

Phil,

Yes, it kind of turned into a pushover, didnít it?  Sometimes it canít be helped.

A/C just got fixed yesterday (finally!), these games were played months ago.

Theyíre not repeats, itís just that I played the entire campaign out, which consisted of a total of thirty games, and itís carrying us this far forward in Ďrealí time because Iíve only been typing up and posting one or two per week.

The fight posted above is #10 of 30, so still a long way to go.

Mini-Campaign Fight #11
TF Bowie vs FSNL 4th Company

1st Lt Madre-Animral leads his TF Bowie straight east, in pursuit of the FSNL's 4th Company, whom they defeated and forced to withdraw earlier this morning.  This is a simple attack/defend scenario; the Cuban goal is to crush their enemies on the way to the capital, the Communist goal is to hold the ground.
 

The Communists push very strongly in the center (right to left).


And force the Cuban right.


Using textbook fire and maneuver in order to push the Cubans back.


Followed by vicious, point blank fighting on the Cuban left.


The Cuban CO launches desperate counterattacks to stabilize the line!

Mini-Campaign Fight #12
TF Bowie vs FSNL 4th Company

Captain Madre-Animral leads his TF Bowie against the FSNL's 4th Company, with whom they are very familiar.  That familiarity is born of an absolutely ferocious battle the two held several hours earlier, literally fighting themselves to exhaustion.  Unable to press forward yet unwilling to cede ground, both sides called for reinforcements and dug in.  This is a simple attack/defend scenario; the Cuban goal is to crush their enemies on the way to the capital, the Communist goal is to hold the ground.


The Cuban attack jumps off (top left and bottom right).


Fierce hand to hand combat breaks out on the far left.


While the Captain Madre-Animral pushes his men forward on the right under heavy fire.

Next up we have the SLA's A Company defending against an assault by the FSNL's 6th Company.
