This scenario is a simulation and does not have any political message.

Mission 4

TIGER CO meeting with APACHE CO north of Bückeburg, 0600 hours. These are your orders:


The main body of the enemy 1st echelon Motor Rifle Regiment (BMP) is now moving towards Stadthagen. We believe that the pursuing battalion you met here earlier was indeed the forward element of the said regiment, and they did not have a clue about us being here. Add to that the deadly MLRS bombardment at their LOD, the vanguard battalion was caught here alone. The 2nd echelon regiments (BTR) and the tank regiment are still in transit, and delayed by the roads clogged with destroyed NATO columns, so we have a real opportunity here to give the Ruskie a bloody nose. Once the 2nd echelon arrives in the AO, we are in a world of hurt, if the 1st echelon manages to push us too far back and consolidate…

3rd ACR will arrogantly pursue this opportunity, by conducting a two stage delaying action from Stadthagen to Klus…

1st Squadron will push forward as soon as possible to establish contact with the enemy 1st echelon. The plan is to stop the regiment from completing its mission, which is securing a safe LOD (presumeably Bückeburg-Klus area) for the Division 2nd echelon to attack Minden. After establishing contact, 1st SQN will delay and attrit the regiment, not letting it past HELPSEN. This allows 3rd SQN enough time to deploy good defenses behind us, so they can prepare to take on the 2nd echelon.

3rd ACR CO intent is to:
1) With 1st SQN to take contact with the enemy main attack, delay and attrit. 1st SQN is to withdraw south out of 3rd SQN’s engagement area via A) Obernkirchen - Bucholz road, or B) Ahnsen - Bad Eilsen - Heessen -road.
2) Stop the enemy main attack momentarily at Bückeburg with 3rd SQN. Delay as long as possible and withdraw no further east than Berenbusch - Strahn -line.
3) With resupplied 1st SQN, continue the attack to enemy left flank along the E30.

During all of this, 2nd SQN is to advance to Feuerlicht - Raderhorst -line and hold the northern flank.

The Big Red One is moving our way and should arrive in the AO with its first elements in 24-48 hours. 3rd ACR will delay and attrit the enemy main attack for as long as the Division is in the area and takes the responsibility over the defense here.

OK, so enough of the big picture, here’s the beef…
1st SQN will conduct the movement to contact as follows:
D Coy (full strength) will attack along the main rail line towards Stadthagen. A Troop (-) is to screen the left flank and B Troop the right. Boundaries are: to the left, the canal, and to the right the town of Niedstädt. D Coy will set the pace.

First up we need to mop up the remainings of the enemy Bn around Meinsen. Then we will use best speed to reach line “Bazooka”, from where we establish contact with 1st echelon units, and start the delay. We withdraw under pressure no farther than line “Animal”, and prepare to withdraw south, supported by C Troop.

We need to be thorough in the mopping up operation, as any enemy unites left behind will cause a lot of trouble when we come backwards to “Animal”. When moving forwards, move from BP to BP, so whenever we encounter the enemy main force, we are read in good position, and can start the movement backwards in bounds. Do NOT get caught in the open, dead ground!

We got the support of the KING battery, D Coy has first priority of fires, then B, then A. We got pleanty of ammo, so don’t hesitate to call in fires whenever needed!

I will be trailing D Coy and coordinating the attack (with unit CO/A, representing SQN CO).

Prepare to move out, D Coy will start the attack NLT 0615hrs!”

The visibility is 3500m, enemy air activity is limited due to our air offensive in the sector. There should not be too many CAS elements, but beware of any shot down planes dropping on your tank deck!

Here's my screenshots:

The plan

2/A made its approach and cleared Meinsen, as the tanks from D Company advanced and cleared out enemies

2/A remained behind to clear enemies, while the rest of A Company advanced

The enemy's main attack began. Oleg reached Line Bazooka, but I was caught off guard, as I had been delayed in clearing out enemies.

D Company and some tanks from A Company retreated, fighting all of the way

As 3/A and 4-4/A made a flanking attack from the west, we inflicted enough casualties on the enemy, and the mission ended automatically
