Umm Qatef 1967

 Inspired by rather than a serious attempt to recreate the battle!

The Egyptians are dug in waiting for the enemy

Here come the IDF... actually after a number of failed command rolls they don't move!

They finally get going!

The IDF have much better range then the arabs, so the arabs fall back on to the reverse slope.

7 M-48s make short work of the pillbox!

Arab arty returns the favour!

The hill top is finally abandoned by the arabs.

Mortars 1 - 0 Recoilless rifle jeep!

Waiting to launch a counter attack!

Here come the M-48s

Things get worse as the IDF infantry flank the arab position!

However their advance into the open was ill advised!

For what we are about to receive...

Op. fire is not exactly impressive!

Double 1, the IDF devastate the arabs

Another double 1! This one is on borrowed time.

The IDF infantry force meets with more problems.

One brave arab infantry section bazookas one M-48 and charges another!

A mexican stand off in the middle east!

The mortars are in trouble.

From bad to worse

Its all over!
