[CWC] 1967 Meeting Engagement

The Eygptian forces lay down a smoke screen and advance quickly, however they are stopped on the right flank by a blunder. The IDF has a harder time with little of their forces arriving and losing two tanks to a command blunder!

The advancing IDF infantry battalion is taken by suprise when they are flanked by a battalion of T-55s! However their armour arrives and uses its longer range to do much damage to the T-10s. To top it off the T-10s commander blunders and they are forced to withdraw, thats 6 blunders in 2 turns!

As the smoke lifts things start to turn bad for the Eygptians, however they do continue to inflict heavy damage on the IDF infantry. The Arab arty also smashs many parked half-tracks.

The T-10s continue to suffer with attacks from all sides, their air defence unit does however drive off the mirage.

First things first the Israeli's pass their break test to stay in the game, they seem invigorated by this and their M-48s form a firing squad that starts along the T-55s!

Despite their increasing dominance the Israelis need to pass a breaktest at -2 to stay in the game, which they do. On the left flank artillery supresses both sides commanders creating a tempory break in the decimation of the T-10s! The remaining ranks of the T-55s pepper a building and finally destroy the infantry hiding inside!

 Its break test time for the Israelis, this time at -6, they fail! victory for the boys from Cairo!

Indians vs. DAK game 1

A platoon of Indians try to protect two small villages from the DAK!

The Indians see the advancing Germans and rush to dig in, while taking fire from the DAK. The German reinforcement section takes heavy fire.

Things continue to look good for the Indians and bad for the reinforcement section, a section of Indians sally out of a house to try and take on the captured Matilda with their feeble anti-tank rifles.

Things are starting to turn against the Indians, the German MGs are taking their toll and casualties are starting to stack up, the two carriers race out to try and bring their ATRs into action but they both bounce of the Matilda and inflict only hits on the infantry with their brens, British arty over shoots again. The Germans cause both carriers to spin out of control, one crashes into a rocky out crop and explodes.

A tank shell from the Matilda sends the second Carrier crashing straight out of control, but it crashes into the Matilda! The Carrier looses that fight badly and only two crew stumble out to fight on. The British arty continues to perform badly.

The Germans push hard on the Indians left flank causing the Indians to send troops from the much safer right flank, German fire chases the two remaining crew of the last carrier down the road! The Indians pass a morale check to stay in the battle. Indians hiding inside a house race to the roof top and assualt the Germans with SMGs and hand grenades while the HMG adds to the fire.

Despite repulsing a German attack things are still looking bad for the Indians but they refuse to give in, the Germans settle down to long range attacks which take their toll on the Indians.
The Indians pass another break test. Their arty arrives on demand, scatters back and takes out the building housing the the FAO and the Indian platoon HQ killing one of their men!
The Indians refuse to quit, the Germans continue to laydown fire and the Indians manage to pop off the odd German!

Suddenly the boots on the other foot and the Germans need to take a break test, which they promptly fail! Victory for the Indians!
