The Darkest Dreams by Lusik
This scenario is a simulation and does not have any political message.




Mission Summary :

October 5th, 1984

You have never thought it was going to happen. The darkest dreams came true. Something that we saw in our training films has suddenly become a brutal reality. 3 days ago Warsaw Pact forces advanced through the border in overwhelming force. The red tide that we have always been afraid of smashed our border outposts all along the front. The main push was through Fulda Gap but NATO forces have seen action all along the German-DDR border  For the majority of soldiers in the company it is still is like a dream, which is visible in their young wide-open eyes. Luckily, the training and drills we have practiced for so long are taking over. Everybody knows what to do but the chaos is overwhelming. The horror... the horror…as Kurtz would say.

How did it come to this? WW3 was sparked in the Middle East  following combined NATO - Israeli strike on Syrian airbases. Airbases that were full of Soviet instructors and personnel.  Over 120 Russians last their lives in the attack and several more were wounded. USSR treated this as act of open war and prepared a retaliatory strike on NATO air bases in Turkey. Dogfights between the the Soviet and NATO aircraft ensued  resulting in several aircraft  downed on both sides. UN summoned an emergency security council meeting, which was openly boycotted by USSR and China. Any attempts to find a peaceful solutions to the situation were overthrown. And then the attack came.

Here in Germany, in our sector of the front,  2nd Cav have been fighting delaying action but suffered heavy losses. 2nd Armoured comes to the rescue. We are Task Force DOW which is compromised of mixed US German units. We were held in reserves but we have been finally sent to the front to face the enemy. We still have old but venerable M60s but our German allies sent them their newest baby - Leopard 2, along with some mechanised infantry in Marders.

We are going to fight… and we know that for some of us this dream will be without awakening.

Map



Excerpts of the battalion commander's (HVAOC 6) orders for...BLUEFOR (D.O.W.)

1) SITUATION:

a) Enemy:
Reports indicate that we may be facing 15th Czechoslovakian Mechanised Division, which has as mix of modern on old equipment. Let’s hope for the words but be prepared for their best units to lead the attack. Let's pray that they are not that willing to die for their Big Bother. 

b) Own:
Task Force DOW is made of the following units:

2 platoons of M-60A3s (TTS)
1 platoon of M113A2s
1 platoon of Leopard 2A4s
1 platoon of Marders
3x M113 TOW support
2x M106 SPM
1x M88 Combat Engineering Vehicle
1x M113 Ambulance
2x Supply Trucks

c) Attachments and detachments:

1x Battery of M109s with HE, Smoke and ICM
2x fire missions of FASCAM

Due to difficult situation in several sectors of the front, no reinforcements are available. If you think that the enemy will break through, retreat and avid further losses.


2) MISSION:

Captain, your mission is to advance to suitable positions and stop enemy from taking Elze. It is a crucial town, which, if captured, opens way to Hannover and further to the Ruhr area. The enemy has to be stopped but if you feel that they come in overwhelming force try to fight a delaying action and avoid excessive losses. It won't be easy but every tank is prices now. It will take a couple more days bring reinforcements from the US.

We didn’t have time to prepare any defences due to a rapid pace of enemy advance. There were reports of enemy in Bad Gandersheim 43 km to the south east but we don’t know where they are. Be vigilant.
 
3) EXECUTION:

At your discretion commander.

4) TERRAIN AND WEATHER:
The terrain is typical for Saxony. Open areas with several hills. Try to find the best possible positions and defend Elze.

Due to low pressure centre and a warm fron front that has been sitting here for the last two days the skies is fully overcast, which makes it difficult for us to use our aviation assets. Our forecast indicates that you may expect rain in the couple of hours.

I want to participate in this one but I am not sure I will be available.  And if I am available I am not sure I will be there at the start of the mission.  If I am late it will not be by very much.

I would definitely prefer to have an M60.  But I will understand if none are available if I am late to the game.

Yes Colebrook, we need somebody for Opfor.  8) This mission was made as replacement because we had the same idea about the map. :) The one I had semi-ready used exactly the same map as your mission last Saturday so I had to come up with something new. I will let you know if I manage to do the scripting but it will definitely be better with a human player on the red side.

I will put you in one of the sections for the time being. If needed, we can wait a bit probably. Joining in progress is bugged now so it is better to wait if nobody objects to it.

I will send it to you either later today or tomorrow morning. I want add a few more details.

Leopard 2A4 4/1C for me! Or red side.

And invited Red Alert VU.

Done. Let me know how many players from Red Alert are going to be there. You can take a whole platoon of Leos or all German unites if there are more players present.

Please state which unit you'd like to take. We can change it later but it will make organisation easier. Manning list updated.
