What are we playing?

Recommended Posts

   After our raid on Sevastopol we can advance futher into Russian territory to our ultimate target - Moscow.

FmSIae1.jpg

   Thanks to our successful sabotage of Sevastopol military base SGB now can't bring much reinforcements and support to this fight.

 

Spoiler

   Sokolov is our opponent yet again. He is adaptable commander, but we will limit his ability to fight me. Plan is usual for this map - lock enemies in 2.5 chokepoints in the middle and push through one, with D-S line being least defended and majority of troops being near/at factory yard. This will allow to limit Georgiy ability to adapt and make situation sort of controllable and manageable.

 

Tb6EDry.jpg

   2 Pioneers squad are needed for uplinks capturing job - one will go from Whiskey to Lima and then Yankee, while second team will get from Zulu to Sierra and establish defensive position on S.

 

ruU3Lrk.jpg

   A lot of forests will be a problem because of infantry that can crawl through them while having pretty good cover and defilade. So majority of Shpetsnaz troops needs to be defeated at central area and we will push enemy, we need to get to their LZ to cut Sokolov's troops from forests and buildings.

   UAV is going to scout area ahead, this thing allows to not call helicopters early.

   And fighting for factory yard begins.

 

   First contacts

Spoiler

3wb4TUY.jpg

   Kamovs starts our brawl on central line with attacking US army infantry that pushed to factory.

 

q0wxRvy.jpg

   We are entering this firefight with our own rockets and artillery shells.

 

IWG6vH9.jpg

   Sokolovs striked us with EMP. That is early Command Point throwing out of window. Although now Blackfoots are not able to fight back and Kamovs can fuck them up.

 

cDpC6aG.jpg

   At least Russian cannon fodder was finished. Sokolov probably disabled us to help BTRs to drop infantry to Foxtrot.

 

AVTgBTs.jpg

   Kamovs tried to attack CV, but good armor allowed it to hold all blows. But looks like Sokolov pushed tanks to Foxtrot as well, he prepare attack on our troops near Yankee/Lima.  

 

9g2snkc.jpg

   Blackfoots are going futher into SGB part of map to scout what is happening there.

 

KA7ucvz.jpg

   CV's UGVs are now acting as targets for tanks, while SPGs are preparing their MRLS pods.

 

lO1VXN9.jpg

 

XLKjMNN.jpg

 

a3LjftM.jpg

   SPGs are back at shelling tanks, i'm trying to make Sokolov order them to retreat, we don't have units on the ground to stop heavy armor with SPAAG support.

 

TP9jHCu.jpg

   Ogres be gone!

 

yRb3XSE.jpg

   BTRs are pushing factory ground, we have only IFVs dropping engineers to Yankee. Spartans and Blyadfoots are called to support them.

 

fI6tHPM.jpg

   Good thing that we finished BTRs before they started to seriously pressure IFVs.

 

GSSPvZ8.jpg

   Pioneers are going for Yankee, Sokolov now tries to attack us with SPGs, with Kamovs spotting for Zhukovs. 

 

dHfwiE0.jpg

   IFVs are going to push forward with gunships support to get to artillery. But looks like Kamovs are going for us.

 

2Ddjiru.jpg

   Spartans are shelling enemies at Delta, Army troops are moving to hold a highway near factort backyard and we are destroying those Kamovs.

 

tch8KdR.jpg

   Sokolov once again hit us with EMP, this can be really bad for Blackfoots. Although they managed to spot KV-20s positon near Bravo.

 

zm4xvbf.jpg

   And we didn't managed to recover yet, heh. Thanks to Pioneers that were firing their missiles and shot down Kamovs we don't have casualties.

 

fqmsAsY.jpg

   Now we are going for artillery, which already manage to scoop up one IFV. With expectation of Blackfoots finishing those things i called tanks, we are preparing to counter-attack SGB forces.

 

9X8PmEb.jpg

   Army troops are arriving to block road and give us good starting point for an assault.

 

BQOeVo3.jpg

   Georgiy's SPGs are done, but looks like SGB still have number of forces not far from Foxtrot in forests.

 

   Exchange of big Kabooms!

Spoiler

vhXs1gR.jpg

   So far situation looks like this. Spartans are shelling enemy 6 (SPAAGs/transporters), Pioneers are moving from Lima to Sierra, 2 gunships units are working on Sokolov's troops in rear of SGB territory. Looks good.

 

WFTwdy1.jpg

   BTRs at Delta, they are starting to form a column to go somewhere.

 

SG0sHrK.jpg

   Spartans managed to fuck them hard enough, they tried to get close to Sierra, but group of American soldiers scared them away. Pioneers are nearly here, and CV is driving to Sierra as well.

 

r6KHXdc.jpg

   Pioneers prepared a minefield for any Georgiy's attempt to go for Yankee. 2nd platoon of tanks is unloading from cargo convertoplane.

 

VhpvtL3.jpg

   Damn, that was a bad timing on taking Sierra while forces were moving through chokepoint, 4 units are defeated, 1 unit is killed.

 

NPZPF7p.jpg

   Some of army forces remains combat capable and new platoon of armor is arriving to them. I need to re-establish task force to beat Sokolov. And maybe drop my WMD on him, too.

 

zxFv5T8.jpg

   Spartans are shelling enemies that are still spotted from defeated units. I have only 5 units active from 10 deployed.

 

LfGACKY.jpg

   CV is slowly moving to Delta to secure it for Pioneers. We still need to cut resources for Sokolov. Also, this big group of troops don't really worth of Kinetic rods strike, Spartans can deal with them on their own.

 

tYk1ZRQ.jpg

   As expected Sokolov filled forests with angry partisan Russian Shpetsnaz soldiers. Spartans continue to shell one of those squads.

 

GdxzvM6.jpg

   Sokolov made a mistake - he stacked 3 of his units on top of each other. EMP strike with hold in place helicopters, while infantry is too slow to get away from my payback.

 

u8NRoMw.jpg

   Kamovs wanted to get to those juicy tanks, but EMP stopped them.

 

6UzsOuP.jpg

   HAHAHAHAHAHA, eat that! 

 

Breakthrough!

Spoiler

5jqXlWK.jpg

   Georgiy tries to counterattack our push on his right flank, as he doesn't have troops anymore to fight back forces in F-Y-L triangle. 

 

RFqmyYP.jpg

   Pioneers and CV have firepower to fight back, but Spartans assistance will allow to avoid casualties on our side.

 

q2O2GEo.jpg

   Force is back at full strength, we have IFVs now overwatching road near Foxtrot and Delta to block Kamovs from coming in and attacking troops, assembling for assault.

 

jIVN6GU.jpg

   EMP strike is called on this counter attacking formation to help IFVs to get away from BTRs. Tanks should arrive soon here to deal with SPAAGs.

 

ZmKAIRl.jpg

   Now they are an easy target!

 

7f57G0T.jpg

   Blyadfoots are helping to get those vultures shot down. BTRs are already being "serviced" by Schwarzkopfs.

 

trHkwYg.jpg

 

BMBRaPl.jpg

   Now there are not troops left between us and Sokolov's LZ. We will fuck them up!

 

   Pushing to SGB landing area. Sokolov is going to be trashed!

Spoiler

LEHi6cp.jpg

   Double team of Blackfoots is scouting areas ahead, tanks and IFVs are blocking road between F and A points, covering repositioning of SPGs. I'm preparing to trash Georgiy's troops on their LZ.  

 

ceiwgkp.jpg

   Targets are appearing again, SPGs already shelling them.

 

Ccbol06.jpg

   Another team appeared. They don't have good support, so we can destroy them, if we work accurate enough with positioning of troops.

 

vjP4K6D.jpg

   Blackfoots are moving away, AA capabilities of this formation againts rookie gunships is way too high for me.

 

JfcCALJ.jpg

 

7P4Am5K.jpg

   Tanks have a good target to land their rounds on.

 

92gjzJK.jpg

   3rd infantry squad is spotted, near Alpha. They looks like prepared an ambush on troops incoming from a road to Alpha.

 

IwMyFRm.jpg

   4 squads are visible now. I assembled 2 attack formations, one is pushing on left of Alpha using coast road, second team will be moving between A and B. Gunships will gun down leftovers/survivors and isolated enemies.

 

azB8oVp.jpg

   Tanks on left flank are doing well, crushing through infantry in building that tried to ambush us.

 

rMhDUys.jpg

   We continue to work on enemies between A and B. Sokolov dropped even more infantry, we have like 80 guys active in targeted zone.

 

RMZdUoO.jpg

   Tanks are dealing with 2nd team of Shpetsnaz engineers. Was Sokolov bitten by Lemzenko?

 

go7NX4u.jpg

 

WaPjTea.jpg

   We killed about 120+ guys after WMD strikes at this point.

 

BXpsvrg.jpg

   And we are done! Wasn't smooth, especially with 1 KIA unit.

   Previous victory manage to win campaign again (as we took territory connected to another region with no other connection to Russian-controlled land, so effectively took 2 regions, and it brought us to 28 taken regions, which is automatic win of campaign), and i decided to re-play it (gave 1 turn for SGB to take 1 region elsewhere so i can attack again and not win before getting to Moscow). So we are back to same Valley map.

DQRwWPx.jpg

   This time we have new opponent - Boris Pontekorvo. According to intel he prefer quick and efficient attacks, don't like to be in defence. This type of leader could be more dangerous on diferent terrain, but Valley layout dictates rather certain type of battle with limited tactics, thanks to central line consisting purely of chokepoints.

 

Spoiler

pNsPCJT.jpg

   My plan is not going to change much, but taking into account more aggressive enemy some changes would be made. CV will advance slower and act as scout during early stages of battle, Spartans will be used to soften any attacks, while IFVs will be my QRF. After early stage of establishing our presence, i'm going to push forward wile adjusting tactics to what Boris will do and then trash him in same way as i dealt with Sokolov in previous attempt.

 

AFX1SMg.jpg

   Spartans are going to be a key for early and "middle" part of this operation.

 

tPQgIGL.jpg

 

IybKpiK.jpg

 

30fafMD.jpg

   Kamovs are near D, we didn't even arrived to first uplinks and Pontekorvo already is not that far from our troops. 

 

oO7F6Br.jpg

   Fastbacks are dropping Pioneers to Whiskey server hub.

 

jESJfy0.jpg

   CV is sending UAV to get eyes on what comrade Boris is doing. Kamovs are moving forward, they are committed to early assault.

 

Qjzyfok.jpg

   First enemies are spotted, Spartans are deploying their cannons to start HE delivery and preparing to hit attackers. SGB troops are at Delta, transports are probably there as well.

   

   Delta Sierra Foxtrot Papa Tango

Spoiler

2Obskj1.jpg

   Boris is using conscripts as support to push to Sierra uplink, we need to stop this assault. This guy acts very aggressively, going for uplinks far away from his LZ, he evem didn't bothered to take any points near starting positions.

 

tVXneZ5.jpg

   Archon and UGVs arrived to block enemies and shield Spartans from any possible push by BTRs, acting as artillery spotter in the same time. SPG round killed Russian Army disposable manpower, leaving BTRs alone and easy to hit.  

 

E0SfbAN.jpg

   I wanted to save MRLS strike for something more important, but US army troops are near BTRs and they are going to be chewed by those things pretty easily. UGVs managed to force Kamovs to go away.

 

xOfZDWg.jpg

   Great, now US soldiers are mixed up with those SPAAGs/APCs. Will stop firing artillery, for some time, until BTRs will mow them down like grass.

 

wI1FXN9.jpg

   Now we can resume. CV did it's job and was moved back to Lima, defend Spartans from other angles, while Fastbacks arrived to make Kamovs gone.

 

mszEcwq.jpg

   Those hyenas with rotors are finishing last soldiers from those 2 squads that managed to mix themselves with BTRs.

 

EuHi2RY.jpg

   IFVs are doing their job while BTRs were moving away for few seconds. Now those douchebags are turning back, and something was spotted on other side of this dumpster river...

 

8odsLx5.jpg

   Oh damn, those are SGB armored fist. IFVs now need to become small and leave only dust behind.

 

4ZkEsEB.jpg

   Kamovs are retreating, BTRs were defeated by artillery so Blackfoots can start to work on tanks. I expected that those T-100s are fully loaded, so we use CV as distraction to make gunship's job easier.

 

NtvSuUm.jpg

   Looks like they don't have AA HMGs, so using Archon wasn't necessary. 

 

o7mX6iV.jpg

   Now we will make Ogres to retreat. Bad timing of unit arriving to attack point gave us opportunity to defeat it. 

 

aFYAupm.jpg

   Foxtrot uplink looked like this when we arrived to central area. There are some troops in forest behind it.

 

4EwlBTP.jpg

   After somebody started to hack Foxtrot i ordered to blind fire it. Will move helicopters around until LOS established.

 

hp1qxfv.jpg

   lol

 

By9IoSZ.jpg

   All SGB troops on frontline are defeated. We can start to push enemy.

 

   Pffffffft, and that's all you got?

Spoiler

1miuCid.jpg

   Gunships are scouting enemy side of Dumpster river, 4 squads of Russian Army infantry area on main road. Spartans will clear them out.

 

RfaGNqC.jpg

   Boris pushed tanks here, but Blackfoots don't have good angle on them, so we are moving them to other place.

 

ZfEhMPi.jpg

   Hey, look, Zhukovs in same place as Sokolov's artillery was located during previous operation!

 

XMbKtmk.jpg

   Yankee is being activated by our engineers, with Recon team of US Army arriving to support them against any light forces attacks. Thanks to Blackfoots scouting i can move SPGs closer to river so they can throw their HE deeper into SGB territory.

 

nyKF3OC.jpg

 

FkFnRzF.jpg

   Zhukovs now are shelling Archon, while one of Saprtans teams now is in range to counterbattery Zhukovs.

 

T0q3gQJ.jpg

   Blackfoots are getting away, they were damaged by Boris troops. Army troops now secured Factory backyard, so we can use as a defensive position.

 

DGbvbSo.jpg

   Instead of pushing through Foxtrot i ordered troops to go through S-D bridge.Tanks and artillery are dealing with Ogres, with Fastbacks taking cover behind Delta uplink.

 

CyuImot.jpg

   Tanks were defeated (they were under artillery attention for rather long time), now Kamovs arrived to escort infantry squad that was moving behind tanks.

 

OnXVU00.jpg

   Look at those bustards that jumped out of nearby forest. Good thing that those are light infantry, AFVs will be able to steamroll them without much fuss.

 

0Ilkr3h.jpg

   Spartans are shelling engineers near Bravo, while riflemens are punching bags for CV's drones and Fastblayds.

 

vxIQv8X.jpg

   Kamovs jumped on Blackfoots with missiles blazing.

 

HzY302a.jpg

   And we are doingthe same! Riflemens were defeated, so now we secured areas near Delta.

 

AjKiqZG.jpg

   WMD strike on our troops defeated CV and Fastbacks, both of which were really usefull in early stages of operation. Also, Boris killed his own defeated unit in this strike. Pffft, this missile strike is almost nothing compared to previous strike that downed 4 and killed 1 unit.

 

   Sorry, i missed.

Spoiler

SSmFZaY.jpg

   Spartans continue to shell this group of engineers, Blackfoots are moving around them to see what Boris is deploying.

 

UlSnGlo.jpg

   Some of enemies SGB deployed were spotted, but looks like 2 of them i missed with my Kinetic rods strike. Kek.

 

BGBrx5Z.jpg

   Kamovs are arriving to be destroyed by us. It feels as Boris Pontekorvo is becoming desperate.

 

HPvekYq.jpg

   EMP strike made them easy target to deal with.

 

YaO023N.jpg

   T-100s should arrive soon, so separating Kamovs from them was necessary.

 

Czum77S.jpg

   House where one of engineers squad tried to find shelter from artillery rounds. Another group of Shpetsnaz operatives are now at Bravo, trying to hack it.

 

DBBzXNp.jpg

   Spartans are shelling those sneaky bastards. T-100s are kind of late for their funerals, slow and not punctual kind of chaps.

 

sSCIClQ.jpg

   I thought that those were tanks... but there are just BTRs. They will be way easier to put down than Ogres.

 

ildj0d0.jpg

   Fastbacks are giving space for tanks to have fun, while also moving to a position to intercept new team of SGB choppers.

 

P25EaOQ.jpg

   EMP+Autocannons on IFVs work very well against air vehicles. We completely invaded and saturated SGB side of map on D-F-Y line.

 

ROewiAb.jpg

   Second team of Kamovs are also going down, they are under fire of 6 our units.

 

uSDkatv.jpg

   Let's add some Missile barrage to this nice dish.

 

cAjLJPJ.jpg

   And a bit of EMP, just for additional salt.

 

8A8bdKY.jpg

   Nothing separates now from yet another LZ massacre.

 

   Yet another LZ massacre.

Spoiler

krjpUso.jpg

   T-100s, without AA HMGs. Easy target for Blackfoots.

 

dBm1Ypg.jpg

   EMP should help to keep those guys in place. Meanwhile we are taking Delta and enemy at this point have no hope to win this battle. 

 

KhdiBiB.jpg

   Before EMP effect ended, our gunships are going away to avoid missile barrage from Kamovs. Other units can tank it better than damaged group of helicopters. 

 

o90SMfD.jpg

   Tanks cannons managed to find one of Kamovs, but they are getting close anyway.

 

tNTY5wO.jpg

   1 tank lost, but this is not going to change anything.

 

klAk7uN.jpg

   EMP strike called on Ogres, this will help to Schwarzkopfs to finish them.

 

Ucd7Zeu.jpg

   Those guys are fucked.

 

lCCHKQV.jpg

   2nd team of Kamovs. Their missile barrage shot down 1 gunship in veteran squad, they will be evacuated. Fastbacks are going to deal with those helis.

 

8myeGPK.jpg

 

Cnu4nru.jpg

   Kamovs are running away, we found a new target to play around. Spartans already changed their firing position, so they are joining us in this battalion-wide bullying activity.

 

A4ruoYc.jpg

   BTRs are charging our MBTs. This is deadly levels of desperation and stupidity.

 

1JmYasr.jpg

   Second salvo of 120 mm HESH rounds against APCs.

 

EeKagL1.jpg

   Good old tanks rush.

 

T8K5QnA.jpg

   I'm going to lock them with EMP strike, so we can win this battle without defeated units from missile barrages.

   Now JSF is preparing to take over Sevastopol Naval base. We raided this base and it is not capable of using it's capabilities against us, but it is able to call air and ground support from other regions of Russia.

Spoiler

yJD1ZJl.jpg

   Our old opponent - Arkadiy Novikov, is back to fight against us. He is well-balanced and capable leader of SGB 13th battalion, he is more capable than Savilov IMO. Plan is rather simple - take S, L, F and Z positions, establish main defence at bridge between D and S, act depending on situation on flanks. Artillery will be able to cover both Zulu and Foxtrot, but futher than that SPGs will not be able to reach, so other uplinks are out of question.

 

tPicuiY.jpg

   We are starting operation in loading area of Sevastopol port, outside of Military base walls.

 

hMMoTo4.jpg

   Map of battlespace. Yankee-Zulu hose is rather tight for big assault, but we need to keep our eyes on it.

   Fastbacks are supporting US troops, i'm using a fact that Novikov didn't parked tanks here, as some other commanders do.

   We cleared area, UAV is out to scout Arkadiy's troops.

 

JPrnzQy.jpg

   Arkadiy attacks Army infantry that was moving to Foxtrot, i'm trying to be cheeky and ordered to fire at fuel tank near Kamovs.

 

RMCwpkt.jpg

   Heh, HP bar is not fast enough to show how much it dropped, 1 chopper is down.

 

1mjnSY0.jpg

   Probably this squad of conscripts was also splashed by this explosion.

 

dGg51iI.jpg

   Pfffftt, Spartans will finish them.

 

2kx4zl6.jpg

   I wanted to try one more such explosive trap, but Kamovs switched their attention to us, i'm pulling back Blackfoots to avoid taking damage.

 

6pTN1tO.jpg

   They are going to be dead in a moment. Looks like Arkadiy is moving towards Foxtrot, he captured A and now working on Bravo servers of ICBM defence system.

 

zYqT7yg.jpg

 

quwiWwx.jpg

   UAV spotted artillery, now when Kamovs are down we should have ability to get to those things and fill them with rockets.

 

mPv9so5.jpg

   Zhukovs are in our sights, but new team of Kamovs are arriving. We can do something for short amount of time, but then we need to get away.

 

HQ2U1Uh.jpg

   Now it is time to get out.

   Uhhhg, now we need to get back.

   And Kamovs are back at same position! What is this, some kind of ping pong?

 

D11QqY5.jpg

   Artillery is finished. I'm still want to grab Foxtrot, but Arkadiy's troops pressure make it to be a harder task. Thats why our tanks were moved here, to support Pioneers.

Spoiler

VFXCpDP.jpg

   BTRs picked wrong moment to show up.

 

3q7zRGD.jpg

   Arkadiy deployed Ogres, we need to get them destroyed before SGB will send them forward. Gunships should be good enough to lock them down and allow Spartans to finish them when gunships will fly back (AA HMGs). Kamovs are now retreating, so no air threats for short amount of time

 

pgzsnO4.jpg

   4 units are attacking BTRs, they should be crushed very quickly.

 

6FRHpg6.jpg

   And they are done. Blackfoots are going for Ogres.

 

Z7wsdFC.jpg

   Our gunships just started to fire and they are already under fire. They will not going to do shit against T-100s, especially because of heavy infantry support (they are near Delta). Spartans are going to take this vacant job of destroying SGB armored monsters.

 

eCi2VPs.jpg

   We are going away.

 

iWeFfhu.jpg

   Yet another group of SGB helicopters attacking this part of our side of this battlefield.

 

5d6Ilul.jpg

   Blackfoots lost 1 helicopter because of our attack on Ogres. Now they are back to fight with Russian choppers.

 

xHx5Ecn.jpg

   Tanks are defeated by Spartans, we are currently ping ponging those Kamovs back from where they came.

 

S1X53uz.jpg

   Now those guys are under serious crossfire and nearly dead. US army troops arrived to secure bridge, so my troops can be used elsewhere.

 

   Battle for point Foxtrot

Spoiler

kTnZIPl.jpg

   Arkadiy managed to sneak in infantry squad to Foxtrot and now he tries to grab it right under my nose!

 

aRajmKk.jpg

   First wave of US troops were cleared by Shpetsnaz troops, but second wave is moving in.

 

47ZtaZp.jpg

   SPGs finished those assholes, but they managed to grab Foxtrot. Pioneers should be able to take it.

 

WyLyEGZ.jpg

   Pioneers are in bad situation as they are now under attack by Shpetsnaz light infantry squad. Blackfoots are trying to prevent this, but Wolfes are too effective against engineers.

 

yknyMeM.jpg

   Light infantry are now hidden from ground troops, they are sneaking into guard tower, while Fastback IFVs are dealing with Kamovs, which are supporting Shpetsnaz operatives.

 

9czAynx.jpg

   Blackfoots were hit by missile barrage, i need to retreat them. Pioneers can't get out, as exit from hangar is looking at empty road, and it is under LOS of Shpetsnaz soldiers. Spartans are trying to do something against SGB SFs.

 

yyYmhsi.jpg

   Kamovs are down, Fastbacks managed to find a place to engage Shpetsnaz Wolfes. Our gunships were defeated.

 

ZMyXpFa.jpg

   Wolfes managed to down our engineers. In the same time we are pushing bridge and Delta point, so things are not so bad.

 

Sq9cpcl.jpg

   Fastbacks are under fire from 2 units, 1 IFV was blown up and now they are retreating. 

 

Hl5zRhI.jpg

   Schwarzkopf tanks also lost 1 tank during attack on Delta, but they managed to smash SGB opeartives. Arkadiy brought up second platoon of T-100s.

 

Q4zTkGL.jpg

   IFVs are moved in cover to recover after losing 1 vehicle. Spartans continue to work on Wolfes.

 

Vceerkh.jpg

   Only cannon meat is located on Y-Z line. I wanted to take Zulu, but all troops are busy here. Good thing that Arkadiy is not pushing there. 

 

0FgE4TW.jpg

   Situation so far. T-100s are now counter-attacking US troops, our MBTs are going to support them. We cleared areas near us, we need to take Delta as we have no time to grab Zulu (Novikov may send troops at Yankee as answer to Zulu capture, which means that majority of uplinks would be under SGB control and defeat clocks for us).

   We are just 1 step away from outskirts of Moscow. 

ZSymtOt.jpg

   We are going to take Dukovany and this will put JSF in a position to start attack on Moscow. SGB will put a serious fight to stop us.

 

cGctYRZ.jpg

   In this fight both sides will have full support of Armed forces.

 

Spoiler

ebwSp52.jpg

   Shpetsnaz troops would be under command of Viktor Lobanov, he is careful and prefers to let the enemy come to him. I neven faced this commander and his battalion, not sure about how we are going to approach this operation. There is only 3 uplinks to take and Foxtrot probably will be a main fighting area where our forces will face each other. My plan is to take Delta and then proceed to F. AFVs will be tasked to secure Foxtrot before infantry arrives to it.

   In this operation amount of foot soldiers will be minimal. In last avaliable slot i assigned Spartan SPGs, they will be deployed instead of usual gunships as in urban conditions Blackfoots will have serious problems with infantry in cover and in buildings. Fastbacks will pick up engineers and drop them near Delta then going to Foxtrot, where CV with artillery support will hold possible SGB push.

9B3I48b.jpg

   Army troops are breaching into oil refinery, majority of them are going to Foxtrot.

 

wkNkUPE.jpg

   CV is not going to move too far, Spartans will need AA protection.

 

bAuXoV4.jpg

 

j9NQQ6i.jpg

   Probably half of this refinery is made out of explodium.

 

FVlKlDl.jpg

   Kamovs arrived.

 

crG2l56.jpg

   CV launched UAV to spot any troops that Kamovs may escort. It looks like they scouted uplink to see if infantry can grab it. Lobanov acts somewhat aggressively, but with proper preparation work. Now after nobody was spotted near F by Kamovs, i expect guests to snatch this server hub.

 

LSGosuP.jpg

   And here they are, BTRs that are very likely to be full of Shpetsnaz operatives.

 

   First contacts: that fight is heating up

Spoiler

koFjegl.jpg

   FIrefight started, Army infantry is moving to Foxtrot while firing at nearby SGB gunships. Spartans are starting to shell BTRs, while Archon is providing protection against Kamovs.

 

L1Zb9rc.jpg

   IFVs now are ordered to get to central area. Area on the right provides a direct path to Foxtrot while also providing shielding from troops in central line, Viktor probably will use it as his main way to get his troops here.

 

sjtgmHQ.jpg

   Pioneers started to capture Delta, Blyadfoots are arriving to help us with Russian army troops and recon job.

 

vtHY72s.jpg

   1 Kamov was shot down so far by UGVs, Spartans now are trying to kill Russian conscripts to clear central area as much as possible.

 

klAVCGD.jpg

   Now SPGs will redirect their cannons back on BTRs, i decided to trying to get rid of cannon fodder is not effective enough way to clean area for our gunships.

 

TNC8C7R.jpg

   UGVs are chasing Russian choppers away, while just arrived Fastbacks are going to peekaboo BTRs.

 

IWFZBss.jpg

 

lkMzFER.jpg

   Perfect! Now artillery needs to finish infantry that managed to jump out of SGB transports.

P3hs9lm.jpg

   Delta is ours, Pioneers soon will be moved to Foxtrot. Delta is going to be defended by 2 squads of Army infantrymens and a team of UGVs.

   Back at middle zone - AFVs are spotted.

 

iIdV1jv.jpg

   A platoon of T-100s is getting closer, they are going through Russian Army lines to breakthrough our troops near Foxtrot.

 

   Battle for Foxtrot (how many times we had those kind of fights for server hubs designated as "Foxtrot"?)

   Blackfoots arrived in right moment. SPGs already started to lob HEs at Ogres.

   -1 T-100s, Blackfoots were hit by AA flamethrowers, but all vics are ok.

   Lobanov tries to catch our gunships off guard with his own attack helicopters.

 

MC7jzXV.jpg

   Schwarzkopf enter facility and open up with a salvo against Kamovs, 1 of those things is going down now.

 

HnnW5lt.jpg

   T-100s are retreating after loosing 2 machines, thanks to artillery and gunships attack.

   Those things are trying to attack again, but they will fail. T-100s were defeated a moment eariler.

gjYLq2V.jpg

   Our helicopters are now scouting targets for artillery, we are clearing central zone for Pioneers.

 

t34guLX.jpg

   Viktor now tries to counter our scout team with BTRs/SPAAGs, Spartans were tasked to saturate those things with explosions.

 

ukVPC2L.jpg

   Tanks arrived to F, they will continue Spartan's work. 1 gunships was lost from missile volley, launched by SPAAGs.

 

74BR9q0.jpg

   Tanks just finished survivors of artillery barrage that took cover behind barricades, and now they will clash with approaching BTRs.

 

8x0RY7t.jpg

 

bFia3jV.jpg

   What the hell is this? A salvo of HESH rounds didn't killed a single APC, while their missile destroyed 1 tank. What they use as AA missile, Kornets?

 

YIcTQk4.jpg

   That team of BTRs is retreating, so we can concentrate all fire on 2nd group of SPAAGs.

 

QFsTip3.jpg

   Spartans finishing last unit that Russians have here. Pioneers are providing eyes on it.

 

VsDJwIX.jpg

   Ghosts are on Foxtrot, Viktor for now can only observe this. So far central area is now ours, we suffered minimal casualties so far.

 

   On the edge of victory, defeat and nuclear fire:

Spoiler

Zs5Jb9I.jpg

   Where is your tickets to watch my victory? You don't have it?!

 

N3dGNIM.jpg

    Pffft... and that's all you got, Lobanov? I thought that Russians are going to do everything to stop us from getting to Moscow!

 

oGgTp1R.jpg

   You already lost, Viktor, thats why i didn't bothered to move units.

 

n2gsZ6F.jpg

   Just 2 seconds. Lobanov EMP'ed Delta so victory clocks were stopped.

 

vldhGfz.jpg

   Huh?

 

P8J6yCA.jpg

   It looks like Viktor is not done, but i can't find his units. Reinforcements were called, looks like we are not done with SGB 27th battalion.

 

HOY4qJz.jpg

   Found those fuckers.

 

jbA98wa.jpg

   Lobanov is bringing even more troops. So will do i.

 

TOcUTm2.jpg

   Now we have more forces on the ground than before nuclear strike!

 

v8AVBxV.jpg

   SGB reinforcements showed up, time to resume this battle.

 

   Stopping a new wave of Russians.

Spoiler

0eLiHbI.jpg

   Finding a good spot for SPGs is problematic - lots and lots of oil tanks that are ready to explode and take out everybody near them. Now we are ready to fight with freshly delivered Shpetsnaz troops.

 

nH5w9BX.jpg

   Kamovs are trying to attack IFVs, as they are hauling Ghosts to building on a corner. My plan now is to block this entrey path, tie enemies in combat here and get to Yankee to resume our computing power superiority.

 

8gOrg3m.jpg

   MRLS pods are unwrapped for slow moving infantry.

   Central zone is in ruins. Platoon of Ogres is now retreating after losing 2 tanks (we lost 1, even when T-100s were under fire of 4+ units)

 

NyBrktL.jpg

   Gunships are scouting areas near Yankee to see what Lobanov plans to do.

 

9ApnkgK.jpg

   Number 5 enemy unit is Zhukov SPGs (or what is left from them).

   I'm going to finish Zhukovs to not allow getting back their cost for VIktor if he order to them to fully retreat.

 

XiMcFZV.jpg

 

YmiwPBH.jpg

   Using this moment of no serious AFV and artillery presence, i'm going to send infantry to Yankee point, under protection of AFVs and gunships.

 

NH5HrLG.jpg

   Kamovs are trying to gun down exposed infantry, but i have other plans for our soldiers.

 

9Yk7yvB.jpg

   A slavo from tanks shot down 1 gunship

   Missiles from one team of IFVs...

   .... and from second one. Infantrymens only managed to get scared by those vultures before we put them down like a dog.

 

oWJNKOS.jpg

   Looks like Viktor understood what we are doing and sended a group of troops to defend Yankee.

 

   Until only dust is left!

Spoiler

hHpSNbE.jpg

   We are lucky - Viktor deployed a lot of engineers and didn't knew that i have Ghosts in the ground. "Creeper" is now sniping those bastards from safe distance, while Shpetsnaz soldiers are heroically dying in numbers from our long range fire.

 

OjvosTR.jpg

 

NAPofpf.jpg

   Artillery is working on second squad of engineers.

YWhDxTi.jpg

   Viktor is sending a wave after wave of gunships to dislodge us from entry to Foxtrot. IFVs are moving to counter this stream of airvics, pouring at us from SGB LZ.

 

xmWOBMO.jpg

   CV is acting as a shield for tanks, but no amount of armor can survive for too long under this amount of pressure.

   SPAAGs are appraoching, our own gunships needs to get away.

   120 mm cannons are going to deal with those things.

   We just only finished one group of Kamovs, now a new one arrives.

   Looks like Viktor again managed to lost almost all of his troops. Ghosts are hacking Yankee to deny it to SGB.

   Finally we are here...

eZk0Pvv.jpg

   Our final operation - capture of Moscow, will be done in 3 phases. 3 battles will be: 1) capturing positions, 2) destruction of main forces and last battle will be elimination of defenders that survived first 2 battles or securing critical positions and if we take too long to do one of those - fighting with huge amount of reinforcements. Both sides in current operation will have all kinds of support.

 

Spoiler

2oipWFe.jpg

   Novikov is our opponent in this operation, he is rather capable leader. My plan is to take L and S and then try to grab positions inside of Kremlin. Arkadiy is less predictable than Savilov, so my "plan" will be changed according to Novikov's actions.

 

0hiTDih.jpg

   As numbers of points that i want to grab during initial moments is small, only 1 squad of infantry will be deployed. Task force will be mainly busy with clearing area from Russian Army manpower, and scaring away SGB troops. IFVs will bring Pioneers to Lima first, then we will go for Sierra. Breakthrough point into the Kremlin will be near D, from it A will be not really hard to get to, as from side entrance near A is big enough only for infantry and it is easier to defend than Bravo.

 

oEajaG2.jpg

   So we are starting action! Empty city, abandoned by locals, now will be full of armed guys and armored vehicles. 

 

Hb5Ym8r.jpg

   2nd fireteam of Spartans was called in, Archon Command vehicle will act as shield for them while Fastbacks will haul engineers around. During previous operation Arkadiy chose a not bad place of attack - where my troops were thin on firepower, and point of his attack was also far enough from central area to avoid getting under fire by bulk of troops. Not sure what he will do here and where.

 

dvonrfW.jpg

   This part of Moscow is full of tight long streets (especially eastern part) and other areas that i not really spacious enough for big numbers of AFVs, with exception of Red Square and few smaller areas inside of Kremlin walls and areas near Zulu and Yankee.  

 

xzuktrV.jpg

   IFVs drivers are vandals!

   Troops are almost ready to aim at Delta, if needed. Blackfoots arrived for recon work and we are now capable of doing artillery strikes.

   Now Blackfoots are trying to dislodge Shpetsnaz heavy infantry from A position, with support of Spartans. We need to do this fast as SGB is nearly done with Zulu. All troops i have are moved closer to Kremlin and now located on quay. IFVs are parked to the west to overwatch out left flank, Sierra and UGVs on it will cover our backs.

 

YzQZrYe.jpg

   Defeat clocks are back, and a flock of Russian choppers appeared on our left flank.

 

4AitlIh.jpg

   Those are are not going to survive, they are under fire of IFVs and our gunships.

 

PKo0rZH.jpg

   Our troops are now pushing in as one massive armored fist across Red Square, together with US Army Abrams tanks. We broken bars that block entry for soldiers in this guard tower, but AFVs can't fit through it, so we are pushing to next tower where vehicles can drive through gates.

 

VMppB0U.jpg

   Arkadiy is counter-attacking our formation, he wants to stop this massive advance.

 

bpJzgnm.jpg

   Novikov throws 2 gunships units and a platoon of T-100s against JSF assault formation. We need to do something about them, this is rather serious combined firepower!

 

BMzCnti.jpg

   IFVs are moving closer to tanks and Blackfoots are parked above our Schwarzkopfs to scare Kamovs away. Spartans already are working on heavy armor platoon of Russian tanks. Pioneers that took Sierra are now at Alpha, undoing Shpetsnaz hacks.

 

mK0W6mj.jpg

   Kamovs are distracted by US Army armored formation, we can now concentrate our firepower on Ogres.

 

0a2HSIz.jpg

   5 units are attacking Ogres!

 

xJqM43z.jpg

   Units are spotted on our left flank, infantry squad and gunships. Novikov saw that Lima is open and seems like he wants to grab it to devalue our grab of Alpha. Cheeky asshole!

 

LkfBhvw.jpg

   Damn, i though we will smack them hard enough before they will manage to get to flamethrowers range, but it is too late.

 

q8eO9K9.jpg

   Kamovs are shot down, Ogres were defeated a moment ago, but one of our MBTs unit is now going back. I called a replacement armor unit instead of them. Arkadiy is now moving his troops through Delta to Lima.

 

KOtb7xq.jpg

   SGB deployed SPAAGs, Blackfoots are probably better to be used somewhere else.

 

   Things are heating up here...

Spoiler

BOO49n6.jpg

   Troop formation so far - SPGs with CV and 2 US Army infantry squads in the back, left flank is being hold by IFV unit, that is now under combined fire of 2 teams of Russian Attack helicopters. 2 squads of our engineers are at and near Alpha, in cover, with MBTs and IFVs parked at one of guard towers with gates for vehicles. 

 

rJA9ong.jpg

   Blackfoots are now supporting IFVs, 1 team of gunships was downed by IFVs. 3rd unit of copters is visible somewhere near Delta.

 

yx2P983.jpg

   At Red square tanks crushed Cockroaches, but are now under fire of seemingly endless waves of Kamovs attack choppers.

 

voqypKj.jpg

   Blackfoots are now saving leftovers of tank platoon that were ordered to retreat back out of battlefield, as nearly destroyed team of Kamovs throught that they will be an easy target. 2 squads of Shpetsnaz soldiers are preparing for assault on Lima, they are my main problem now. Second US troops formation arrived, parked  near Alpha and they are going to support 2 squads of engineers, now we have very good foothold inside of Kremlin.

 

BorkoP7.jpg

   This flock of Russian gunships is no longer a threat. 1 more is near Delta and 3rd is being worked on by Blyadfoots

 

Ml5szXA.jpg

   Group of choppers from Delta are now trying to attack Blackfoots, but they are now under concentrated fire by 2 squads of engineers and whole armored formation of US Army. In the same time Arkadiy probably tries to give some time for infantry to get to Lima, as one of squads almost crossed a bridge to our side of river.

 

Kn7RGJP.jpg

 

H3EtyyO.jpg

   Exchange of missile barrages.

   They are done. Looks like yet another group of choppers is flying towards central formation of my troops.

hiCKIWd.jpg

   They are also fucked.

 

xzEaraq.jpg

   Engineers tried to get to Bravo, but Novikov deployed tanks and moved his troops towards our left flank. He now tries to avoid Red Square and maneuver in parts of city that are far away from us. 3 infantry units are now between Lima and Delta.

 

HeSEe6w.jpg

   Umm... i probably missed something, but i didn't used WMD or put Arakdiy into defeat situation, how he managed to deploy WMDs against us? Anyway, he hit our SPGs and CV, which are not so usefull against waves of Kamovs. Ghosts were deployed in order to defend Lima from Russian Shpetsnaz infantry onslaught.

 

gzUODgD.jpg

   Payback! We hit at least 1 or 2 enemy infantry units, but 1 that got through bridge to our side of battlespace is not done yet. We need to find them and gauge them out.

 

   Battle for Kremlin!

Spoiler

w1ukjOI.jpg

   Engineers are on Bravo, working on it. Arkadiy tries to counter this, sending what he have left - Kamovs, but they are under heavy fire now.

 

IFxjU0I.jpg

 

yPeIDg1.jpg

   Those guys had a really bad day before being killed.

 

oVTQQxd.jpg

   Almost all of our troops are now inside of Kremlin. Arkadiy wanted to deny victory for us by taking Lima, so capture of Alpha would have been useless, but we are taking Bravo, so taking Lima is not going to stop us from getting an upper hand. Although i would like to not have a squad of Russian SG soldiers running around our rear lines.

 

VfRKvL3.jpg

   Tanks are trying to attack, but  they are now under concentrated fire on top of being damaged in previous attempt.

 

fIaw1FP.jpg

   They are done.

 

IqD55Xw.jpg

   That's bad - that infantry squad was a light infantry unit. Ghosts and Wofles already exchanged sniper fire so both have casualties. Both are without cover now, but in few moments we will have one.

 

SzKwSxR.jpg

   So now this is a firefight of similar type of units. Although a freshly deployed SPG team is going to be a really good support for Ghosts.

 

5RjRZus.jpg

   Arkadiy throws more tanks at us. We have 2 IFVs units and 1 tank platoon inside on top of what is left US troops here, plus engineers are taking cover in order to attack those tanks.

 

90ftSJT.jpg

   3 units are attacking those Wolfes as second team of SPGs that just rode out of cargo convertoplane started to shell them. Those guys are crazy - they are now charging us head on, they want to get into range for UGLs attack!

 

IGyT61Z.jpg

   Wofles were finished with artillery HE shot and small arms fire with minimal casualties for Ghosts, but things here are not so well. Armor platoon lost 2 MBTs, while Ogres still have 3 beasts active. Spartans now need to move and shell tanks ASAP.

 

IryWwI9.jpg

   Engineers that were moving from Bravo to Delta in order to take it and block Western entrance for Arkadiy troops stumbled on full squad of SGB engineers. This is really bad for them, Spartans are too far to start fire mission.

 

C1hi7cu.jpg

   Spartans are moving, Blackfoots will be used to deal with what troops Arkadiy still have. Engineers and Schwarzkopfs were defeated, survivors of those units are going to be evacuated.

 

rfAFo2N.jpg

   Airstrike finished Ogres, saving IFVs from them. Now Blackfoots are providing eyes on this team of Shpetsnaz Bears.

 

iBlejPV.jpg

   Bears near Delta are not last infantry teams that Arkadiy have - another squad of footmobiles are going through same gates as Ogres tried to push through. Fastbacks are firing with all guns they have (rare to see - RCWS is being used for enemies at close range)

 

PbcUqq1.jpg

 

XKWBYwG.jpg

   Spartans are shelling area near Delta, while Ghosts are working to bring back Lima under our control.

 

L6o9FKB.jpg

   Engineers left Delta, they are trying to get out of fire, but southern road is also blocked by Pioneers that garrisoned a church that overlooks it.

 

6jRMWyf.jpg

 

Xkc8MCN.jpg

   And done, crossfire is a good way to finish dangerous units.

 

7q1N8LC.jpg

 

x5Nqska.jpg

 

4uwOO5U.jpg

   And those guys are also smashed into pieces...

 

4k9uMYs.jpg

   That was a hard battle, Novikov manage to defeat 3 units with WMD strike, 3 units were defeated in direct combat and 3 more were taken out of battlesapce as they suffered serious casualties. He also managed to change tactic and strategy mid battle, recognizing that my left flank was almost completely empty.

   2nd phase of Battle for Moscow. Now we are going to clash with main SGB forces in attempt to eliminate all of them.

XHCU7ea.jpg

   Our opponent this time is Aleksabdr Kurochnik, with whom we fought some time ago. He has a reputation as an aggressive commander who always prefers to be on the offense and use small offensive attacks with air support. My plan here is to deploy a lot of AFVs, pick enemies one by one with our attack formation, keep our distance to minimize damage taken and generally move around to destroy our enemy. 

 

Spoiler

nRk6Qil.jpg

   We can deploy a lot of troops in first moments of operation, we are going with AFV heavy composition with all Spartans we can deploy put into action immediately. 

 

MK3Tnbw.jpg

 

NqHvE0f.jpg

   I'm also called 2 Blackfoots to scout enemies and gun down enemies separated from main forces.

 

FzdqU5Q.jpg

   First enemies spotted. We have 2 gunships teams, 2 platoons of MBTs, 2 groups of IFVs and 2 SPGs batteries.

   Kurochnik brought artillery to this fight.

   2 teams of Zhukovs (!), Command truck, BTRs - looks like Aleksandr picked Red Square to be our main battlefield.

 

   Red Square as boxing ring:

Spoiler

TkLEpwL.jpg

   Blackfoots are trying to get to KV-20s, but SGB's SPAAGs are blocking their way in. Will try to sneak them from other angle, but we need to do this fast as tanks are already taking damage from artillery strikes.

 

mTxFevD.jpg

   SPAAGs are still moving in such way to block our path, i'm using gunships to lure BTRs to tanks and SPGs.

 

E5reZgD.jpg

   Got you, bitch!

   Now Blyadfoots have a shot on Zhukovs.

 

LGtuYn3.jpg

   Blackfoots are under heavy AA fire, we need to get them out.

   Single infantry squad on left flank is moving from Lima to Delta point, looks like path is clear. BTRs near Saint Basil cathedral are defeated, survivors of infantry that was inside jumped out, but they are going to be destroyed quickly.

 

roM4uNS.jpg

   Now there are not serious obsticles between us and Kurochnik's troops. I'm going to push entire task force closer to Red square, as we have opportunity to destroy SGB forces because of tactical mistake - Aleksandr's battalion is separated into 2 formations - one is inside of Kremlin and 2nd is located on Red Square.

 

6XsxBgI.jpg

   Troops are pushing foward to use this excellent moment.

 

n8Xa05n.jpg

   Greatings from 120 mm cannons!

 

5bmtdWb.jpg

   BTRs are desperately trying to save Zhukovs and charge our tanks in attempt to start very short range fight, but our tanks are equipped with RCWS systems that can engage targets that are too close to use cannons on. I call guided bomb strike on one of Zhukovs team in attempt to force it to displace or make it easier target for us.

 

LJbgbk6.jpg

   BTRs are now mixed with our troops trying to wreck havok, but they already lost 2 vehicles. Tanks lost 1 from artillery, same with IFVs.

   BTR's attempt failed as nothing serious was done (some damage was received, but no casualties).

 

f1NtmTI.jpg

   Now we are going to destroy KV-20 SPGs.

   2 squads of infantry are trying to save those SPGs, but it is too late!

 

PD0NCur.jpg

   Done!

 

   Where we can buy a ticket to Kremlin?

Spoiler

mHE7tW8.jpg

   I want to get into Kremlin and destroy troops there, but Aleksandr still tries to fight us on Red Square. He proably needs to understand that this fight is lost cause, time to move on.

 

60eC6Z9.jpg

   Kamovs are firing all their missiles at CV, which have enough armor to easily survive that.

 

oGvcdcB.jpg

   Looks like Kurochnik's command vic is nearby, so our commanders probably are looking at each other, angrily.

 

N9ZeMID.jpg

   This team of Kamovs are nearly done, Shpetsnaz engineers are sitting inside of GUM building so Blackfoots needs to be carefull to not get too close.

 

BPDwuCZ.jpg

 

aJGvxME.jpg

   CVs did exchange fire with each other for some time.

 

SHrhZUC.jpg

   Spartans are slowly chewing through engineers.

 

8VCj4EM.jpg

   And those guys are done. Ghosts captured Delta, so not things should be smoother for us as a lot of Sheptsnaz troops were defeated.

 

oYcsKau.jpg

   Second group of SGB heavy infantry taken positions in one of guard towers.

 

v7dqcKW.jpg

   Great, now our troops finished CV's protection infantry, now we can try to fuck up Aleksandr's command truck.

 

2zhedZS.jpg

   Guided bomb and fire through gates finished this MAZ truck.

 

r2pL4BN.jpg

   Spartans and Blackfoots are going to clear Kremlin now.

 

sieOZeS.jpg

   Kurochnik continues his attempts to leave Kamovs parts across whole square.

BZve7TC.jpg

   Majority of SGB troops are defeated. Probably only some sneaky Shpetsnaz operators are left somewhere around.

 

   Clean up crew:

Spoiler

qkNM63M.jpg

   Now we can clean Kremlin from crawling Shpetsnaz cockroaches! Ghosts were moving towards engineers near Bravo, but a group of engineers are spotted near Delta. Ghosts could easily defeat them.

 

OkXmMjM.jpg

   Yet another flock of choppers arrived to get their share of fire.

 

rCE2Q90.jpg

 

9zep6NP.jpg

   Kamovs are shot down and now this group of engineers are on our plate.

 

GUaRxkW.jpg

   And those guys are defeated as well. Now we need to smash remianing infantry.

 

ZOLEcJy.jpg

   Another group of SGB infantry. Spartans and Ghosts will have fun times.

 

B9rpXCg.jpg

   One team was found near Bravo, they are going to eat a lot of lead.

   Now guided bombs!

 

A9MVmut.jpg

   And those guys are done as well.

 

k2PIHHD.jpg

   Hmm, nobody is visible, again. Time to go and find those poor bastards to play as our practice targets!

 

   Wrap up, with 100% more explosions!

Spoiler

4nekuu9.jpg

   Just stop this, Aleksandr. We MAY run out of ammunition!

 

AgjKX9o.jpg

   Oh, we still have a lot of missiles ready for helicopters.

 

x9NxE1K.jpg

   Our next target - engineers team that was scouted much eariler during battle.

   Spartans repositioned to shell those Shpetsnaz operatives.

   And here it is - last battle for our battalion, for JSF and end of Siege of Moscow!

nIPLK9z.jpg

   We completed 2 battles in capital of Russia and just 1 battle left before we will crush enemies and completely win WW3. 

 

Spoiler

gLVS8TM.jpg

   SGB best commander will fight against us - general Alexei Tatarev and his elite Alpha brigade. He is very capable enemy, but situation for them is pretty bad - first 10 minutes of operation they will have no ability to call reinforcements and supports, and they also should protect point Alpha from infantry attacks. Two more things - during whole operation all our troops will be always spotted thanks to Russian Army efforts and Alpha brigade troops are going to fight until their last soldier, which means no "defeated" units (usually at 75% casualties units are becoming defeated), we need to shoot until last vehicle and last infantrymen are dead.

 

YaKRp5J.jpg

   My plan is to win before Russian Army will arrive, which mean we have less than 10 minutes to destroy elite troops and outplay best SGB commander. Troops composition will be similar to last battle with Kurochnik and his battalion, as it showed best result so far. Plan is to make a breach in Shpetsnaz defence line of automatic turrets and get inside of Kremlin where will either destroy all defenders or take over Alpha point. For this purpose we need 2 infantry squads (Ghosts to deal with enemy infantry, Pioneers to reinforce uplinks on the way to Alpha and provide AA and AT capabilities), tanks and artillery. As SGB will not be able to call many gunships, amount of IFVs could be lower, but i'm thinking about using them as transports for 2 infantry squads.

 

Q6CfAnH.jpg

   So we begin. All defenders are inside of Kremlin walls, in A-B-D triangle. I'm going to call 2 gunships squads that would be very usefull after we will penetrate enemy defence line.

 

Iv8pCSo.jpg

   Just 20 seconds after we started, Tatarev's elite troops started to shell us! That operations is already not a standart deal.

 

   Air full of artillery rounds

Spoiler

0m36Kj4.jpg

   2 teams of gunships were sended to scout enemies, but big amount of AA fire will not allow me to attack SPGs directly. One of Spartans is already taking damage as his position was zeroed. Ghosts are loaded into IFVs, i'm planning to push Alpha brigade on left flank and take Delta.

 

0Gis7MJ.jpg

   Artillery was found, now Spartans can start counter-artillery barrage. 

 

uwTHw8r.jpg

   Line of AA autocannons in central area, 4 automatic turrets defending bridge. We don't have time to clear them all, so ground troops will concentrate only on relevant targets. Line of turrets in the middel should be destroyed to allow gunships a path to enemies.

 

dhorNKv.jpg

   SPGs are shelling forces of their enemies. Spartans were switched to destroy defensive turrets, while rest of troops are starting shifting to our left flank.

 

eOcuBb6.jpg

   One more quick recon flyover - Spartans are now suppressing Zhukovs. A team of Kamovs is visible on the background.

 

53C6rMm.jpg

   Tanks are assaulting Big Stone Bridge on Eastern side of operation zone. Alpha brigade's infantry is located on Alpha and Bravo, but they didn't got to Delta so far. Pioneers are going to take Lima to allow us to utilize airstrikes, we need maximum firepower!

 

5OHmEFN.jpg

   Almost entire task forces is moving through this hole in SGB defence line. SPGs continue to exchange fire, now against each other, again.

 

c7y4NKb.jpg

   Alpha brigades tanks are located, they are near Bravo. KV-20's shells are landing way to close to 2nd team of Spartans.

 

ORDzwnH.jpg

   1 SPG lost, counter-battery fire is aimed at one of nearest Zhukovs team. I can't move SPGs as this will allow Tatarev to fire at them without our own SPG's sending HE on enemies.

 

cjNpkir.jpg

   2nd team lost 2 SPGs, 1st battery lost 1 SPG. Tatarev prioritized targets well enough, maybe a bit too late - my troops are crossing river. But if KV-20s will concentrate their fire on tanks, i will have serious problems with pushing forward. Also, Alpha brigades operatives are now at Delta upgrading it, and they are with Kamovs support.

 

   ...and this is my right hook!

Spoiler

Qn4spzi.jpg

   Kamovs are trying to attack our avant-garde, but i deliveratly put IFVs as first troops to cross Big Stone bridge.

 

v7XoytK.jpg

 

dozohni.jpg

 

NlVfOqi.jpg

   Tanks were moved back to embankment, as now they have a target which they can shell - infantry inside of church. In the same time tanks became priorty target for Zhukovs, leaving Spartans time to recover. But we need to smash those KV-20 SPGs until they do more damage!

 

9RzQJv0.jpg

   Even if gunships will be defeated, destruction of KV-20s is now a top task.

 

V9zepFR.jpg

   Missile barrage + Spartans fire should finish those SPGs. Second team of SPGs were heavily damaged by our conter-artillery fire, but those bastards are still alive.

 

JQ9hJhW.jpg

   Second team is going to be target for a gun run. Blackfoots are getting out of this area, too much AA fire.

 

cbiUnYN.jpg

   Damn, those things are still alive! Blackfoots are moving back, we need to destroy those SPGs ASAP as they re-started to attack our own artillery support!

 

ORKdcJ3.jpg

   First unit is destroyed, second unit is just a single SPG, still firing at us. Tatarev throws Ogres and BTRs to save his last long range fire-capable unit.

 

J06DiNg.jpg

   Done! Now get out!

 

   Breaking through!

Spoiler

IiImDO0.jpg

   One team is not going to make it, they are losing machines one by one very quickly.

 

3IhKpcI.jpg

   One team of gunships was defeated, second one have small chances to get away. Both Spartans team lost 4 vics in total, Alpha brigade was close to defeating them.

 

tx7ofFC.jpg

   Second group of helicopters manage to get out. I'm not going to call Spartans back, too much time will be needed to bring replacement. Main troops are at guard tower near Delta, destroying barricades to breach in.

 

frCxGvn.jpg

   Alpha troops understood what we are going to do and sended infantry and tanks to counter our actions.

 

pGZhyd4.jpg

   Shpetsnaz soldiers garrisoned Guard tower, but they are going to be under fire of whole assault formation.

 

lJw6T9S.jpg

   Tanks are now firing salvos of HESH rounds to gouge defenders out of their cover.

 

RNIC55E.jpg

   Second salvo! Looks like Tatarev ordered to both tanks and BTRs to participate in this counter attack. Using this moment, Spartans are displacing to find a better position.

 

C4Zmcn8.jpg

   BTRs should be damaged from Spartans fire, tanks still have 3 vics active.

 

LVXM7TF.jpg

   Airstrike on BTRs killed what was left of their unit, now tanks are alone.

 

Q7EtLZL.jpg

   We are going in!

 

   Inside of old fortress there is only fire

Spoiler

jynKSva.jpg

   We have little more than 3 minutes to get to Alpha. Gunships spotted 2nd infantry team that was on Alpha, those guys are overwatching entrance near critical position. 

 

zGtIq99.jpg

   3 turrets are at Alpha, they are going to be easy targets for artillery and rest of AFVs. Ghosts are taking Delta in case if we will not make it in time.

 

CnN9Bmq.jpg

   WIthout waiting slower MBTs, Fastbacks are assaulting our objective.

 

mBrtQbO.jpg

   Engineers are moving in order to counter this push. So far i didn't saw any other unit. They appear to be last one of Alpha troops here.

 

uxvZlhz.jpg

 

qV2xDCA.jpg

   Tanks showed up and started with platoon sized slavo of 120 mm cannons, bathing Shpetsnaz engineers in fire!

 

TV449Ef.jpg

   At this point i called a gun run and ordered a missile barrage on those guys - we have no time to deal with them if there is another unit clawling somewhere on Red Square or in our rear positions.

 

nDDLE6N.jpg

   Done!

   Yes!

   Here starts my Euroweaklings playthrough on max dfficulty - Hardcore. In this mode our enemies will have tech advantage (they will outrank me almost always and troops will have better weapons, more health) and on top of just having more armor, HP and damage, AI will be better as well. Not sure how, we will see. After this playthrough (i already done it at this point) i will no longer post more playthroughs of EndWar, so this "series" will be over.

   4cAVV1M.jpg

   In this campaign i will go with armor heavy battalion. Big number of artillery doesn't do much, as there is a hard cap on number of SPG units active during operation (2 per side). Although if we will lose some, we wil have an experienced replacement.

 

   Quick look into barracks:

Spoiler

5A8Gv3h.jpg

   Not upgraded, stock turret.

 

evoFpRs.jpg

   Ummm.. that is a bit strange upgrade.

   Euroweaklings units in EndWar AFAIK supposed to be not well armored/have lower HP than other factions, but they are faster. Not sure how much difference will be better AI abilities, we will see.

 

   Skipped prelude to WW3, probably should have done it on Hardcore, but we go straight to WW3!

71Ssq0q.jpg

   First operation of our battalion. We are attacking Russians in Istra regions, with support of Air forces. SGB will have ability to call regular army support during operation.

 

Spoiler

cNHNxHR.jpg

   Georgiy Sokolov - adaptable tactician - is my opponent in out first operation. In this fight usual tactic of taking Y-Z line will be used, but we are starting on southern part of map. Not sure how things will go, but enemy is 1 rank higher than we are, so their troops will be a bit harder to crack.

 

MnCCj7p.jpg

   All troops are "green", we are going with simple deployment. Taking into account that we are weaker than Russian troops, we probably will need to move around more to find softer spots to exploit.

 

V5SVfs7.jpg

   Eurohordes are out!

 

fiB0SmW.jpg

   And our engineers are going in. Called gunships to scout and gun down isolated units.

 

jO085ix.jpg

   Strange placement of rocket pods.

 

wezvhmt.jpg

   Our tin cans on wheels arrived to Alpha.

 

bruQ3ew.jpg

 

89tUrVC.jpg

   Merde! Russian human waves are spotted!

 

   First operation hot phase:

Spoiler

48QiQYi.jpg

   Cheetahs are going for Army infantry, clearing area for contact with SGB troops. We captured Alpha and 2 SPGs were called in. Kind of risky, as i don't have good escort for them, but their firepower could be critical to early stage of battle.

 

pbDPzF0.jpg

   From Cheetahs a team of Shpetsnaz soldiers, going to Delta can be seen.

 

eutR5Cb.jpg

   Sokolov brought BTRs, we should watch out fo those things.

 

462dGU3.jpg

   He captured an uplink, so it is not a surprise that Kamovs are now here.

 

cdPpq09.jpg

   Now they are trying to do exactly what we were doing. Bastards!

 

ycrAkCW.jpg

   Cockroaches are moving towards gunships, those vics are upgraded already with ERA to increase protection.

 

Lzdkm7S.jpg

   SPGs are already arrived to their firing position and now they are going to shell those SPAAGs/transports. In the same time Panthers were called in to support us in central area.

 

5tvkOId.jpg

   Marksman artillery trucks, firing at Russians. Apparently we spend our military budget on painting muzzle flashes into peaceful, democratic blue color.

 

Swg4FLE.jpg

   Kamovs are using a fact that Cheetahs are kept outside of BTR's autocannons range and they are finishing our Eurotroops.

 

VrqPM3R.jpg

   Trying to sneak our attack while BTRs are distracted.

 

EQ4d4QQ.jpg

 

bA6OnfE.jpg

   They lost 1 vic because of artillery. Still distracted.

 

zjTyM8m.jpg

   Now they are paying attention. Time to run away!

 

ezpRpzD.jpg

   Ou APCs are acting as an ambush for Kamovs, which went to attack Cheetahs. BTRs are retreating, but Sokolov sended infantry squad from D to grab Lima.

 

Gze0XrN.jpg

   Engineers are almost at Yankee point, i'm trying to limit advances of Sokolov troops by estbalishing hard point near his uplinks. Kamovs are going to retreat or be shot down, thanks to our ambush.

 

XZRNldP.jpg

   Cheetahs are going away from Shpetsnaz engineers, Marksmans will work on them. Calling 2nd platoon of Panthers in preparations for our counter-attack.

 

GCnoBOL.jpg

   And BTRs were finally defeated!

 

   Battle for Yankee:

Spoiler

E7kfVV2.jpg

   Gunships lost 1 helicopter from SGB engineers at Lima. We will live them to SPGs, Cheetahs are going to scout what Sokolov deployed. Our tanks are on their positions, ready to attack together with Badger APCs.

 

y8pwPvS.jpg

   Cheetahs found just arrived Zhukov SPGs, preparing for shelling our positions. A gun run was called on them, but our fragile eurotech inside of Cheetahs are eating a lot of damage and choppers will not get out of this situation. Also, regular army troops are going somewhere, probably to Delta.

 

Vl4i8Ge.jpg

 

vyekj1z.jpg

   KV-20s already started to lob rounds at us.

 

9YayV0e.jpg

   T-100s are assaulting our positions near Yankee, Badgers are under fire and they are moving into cover.

 

xtM4gI6.jpg

   Panthers are going to try their claws on those SGB armored monsters, also with artillery support. Ogres are assaulting us together with infantry squad near them, probably light infantry as they have good enough camo to be not spotted by now.

 

A1klW7Z.jpg

   Badgers are under AT fire from engineers that advanced from Lima towards Yankee. We are under pressure from 2 both flanks! Both platoons of Panthers are taking turns to attack Ogres, this should allow us to break them without taking too much fire.

 

iSpTxa4.jpg

   T-100s are retreating!

 

YSFs2uI.jpg

   Kamovs are trying to take out more APCs while they are under fire from engineers on their tails.

 

ceN5ywA.jpg

   Infantry squad that was supporting tanks also got under artillery barrage and lost number of their soldiers. Now tanks are going to finish them.

 

hAv5f1h.jpg

   Badgers are keeping pressure on Kamovs to cut them from attacking tanks.

 

hVhBIv3.jpg

   Badgers were attacked by Russian army troops, that Sokolov ordered to guard Uplinks. We need to assault this area and take both uplinks, engineers are already moving to Lima, that was cleared by SPGs. 

 

   Northern pass:

Spoiler

s4DP3oD.jpg

   Panthers were tasjed to breakthrough Russian army scouts and secure Delta.

 

mzp8yKj.jpg

   Engineers were moving to cleared Lima, but Sokolov deployed Army personal there, now our infantry is in serious trouble.

 

SA9eouE.jpg

   Ordered them to keep going to nearest cover, Marksmans are helping with "CAS" - close range artillery support.

 

Q6JbSnq.jpg

   Infantry squad that is moving to forest is uplink guard deployed by engineers that captured it. Assholes, they are trying to avoid artilllery and find a better spot to engage engineers.

 

SznTNDa.jpg

   Grenadiers ordered to move to Lima, artillery will finish guards. Server hub building will work as a cover for advancing troops.

 

ChNuYY3.jpg

   Tanks are promptly moved back to area where we have any kind of serious AA coverage, as Savilov filled skies with attack choppers.

 

xJQyGEM.jpg

 

pIFsk9F.jpg

   Freshly deployed Badger team is moving to flank gunships. First team of APCs that lost 2 vics is still in battle, we need all troops to keep up with pressure, as we are slowly taking initiative in our hands.

 

GtbVtCo.jpg

 

54h7tIj.jpg

   Excellent!

 

C47MdD6.jpg

   Now we have 3 uplinks under our democratical control. Marsmans are clearing area near Z point, while we are chasing helicopters away.

 

18xQf1j.jpg

   Georgiy wanted to send infantry to Foxtrot, looks like.

 

v5IBDRl.jpg

   A gun run defeated this group of SGB air vehicles, now we are establishing AA blockade for Savilov!

 

   LZ massacre... kind of... not sure...

Spoiler

2Db0G1w.jpg

   That battered pair of T-100s is back. They are now trying to counter attack us as our democratic troops are pushing to lock down SGB LZ. Badger APCs are ordred to move, i want them repositioned somewhere away from those ruski tanks. 

 

7chLQIe.jpg

   Those guys are angry! Smashing cars on the way and breaking stuff.

 

gyU1QTV.jpg

   Those Kamovs are back and tried to attack Panthers, Badgers were called to deal with them, but Ogres are now engaging them.

 

ZQnjYeJ.jpg

   Those APCs were defeated, but tanks continue to fire at Ogres. 2 Platoons of our Panthers can't quikcly deal with T-100s, and looks like our first encounter with them was so painless because of SPGs, which are on the move now. That is bad - even with 8 vs 2 situation Ogres still can do something against our troops. Our European weapons are truely weak!

 

dXGmEFf.jpg

   Second team of APCs were called to sheild tanks from Kamovs, and now Ogres are firing at them.

 

aLeG1Df.jpg

   Badgers are under considerable pressure - Savilov brought another team of Kamovs to try to smash them. He understands that if i lose AA coverage, tanks will be easy target for his gunships. Artillery is shelling infantry, tanks are switching between taking shots at T-100s and infantry squad in forest.

 

YGL9E44.jpg

   Ogres managed to take out 1 APCs, but we also downed gunship team. Artillery and tanks are trying to take out infantry squad ASAP to allow some space to move against Ogres.

 

nLc9lxn.jpg

   This is now a fucking tense moment - T-100s are STILL alive and they took out 2nd Badger APCs. Our weakling "Panther" tanks are probably firing something as effective as confetti at those armored monsters. Those 2 tanks managed to take out 3 APCs while being under *almost constant* fire of 8 Eurotanks!

 

oD0l7S8.jpg

   FINALLY! Called a gunrun against Kamovs, not going to deal with this shit any longer.

 

8wyx5Tt.jpg

 

FuWkPpI.jpg

   That was a hard battle with tense moment in the end. If we lost just 1 more APCs, majority of our troops would lost any serious AA protection for rather long time, which could mean a defeat.

   So far Hardcore AI have better target prioritization, focus fire, quicker reaction to situations and more precise understanding of range of engagement of units.

 

Results:

8UE1A4T.jpg

 

ziOm4MC.jpg

   That group of footmobiles tried to flank our assault formation, only thanks to artillery and some attention of tanks we managed to brake them.

 

pkW4ts5.jpg

 

xikMp5u.jpg

   B? Even if no WMDs were used, this fight was at times a close one. Sokolov's troops defeated a team of gunships, a platoon of Badgers, almost maanged to take out another unit of APCs and Grenadiers.

 

CUvPeE6.jpg

   JSF is pushing us from Western part of European Federation. Those American bâtards will get theirs, soon!

   Today operation - raid on Ft. Levski. Our Euroweakling command decided that attacking Shpetsnaz while they have ground forces support is a bad idea, so our sneaky mission to break stuff was put together. During this raid we will have no air or ground support, at all.

 

Spoiler

8uNwLZV.jpg

   Sokolov, again! Mission is simple, enemy - not so much. In previous battle he was pretty hard commander to crack. My plan is to attack A, then B and D targets. In this way we will avoid getting to deap into enemy territory and still have ability to quickly move troops from/to flanks thanks to direct road from A to D.

 

K4DC50m.jpg   So far this is usual loadout, our battalion isn't best one so logistics is limited. First wave troops will capture uplink in order to establish our presence on the ground, after that other units can be called in.

mVrRpOe.jpg

   We are ready to go.

 

   Eurocopters are weak and automatic turrets are strong

Spoiler

0xy4OWU.jpg

   After seeing terrible results of first battle, i decided to test how weak Euroweaklings are. Cheetahs were tasked to fire at automatic turret.

 

Hgplm3B.jpg

   But very quickly i was forced to move them away as they started to take damage. They were under fire of 2 or 3 turrets, so this is not too surprising but...

 

6n6RFSv.jpg

   They did to it just a bit of damage, as much as those turrets delivered to Cheetahs. Damn those things are weak!

 

6TsomO5.jpg

   We are not done taking Foxtrot, but HQ allowed us to get additional units. Tanks are pretty good fit to deployed troops. Note that we have only 2 more units in reserves, which mean that maximum amount of troops that could be on battlefield ever during this op is 6. If Sokolov defeats all 6 of them than this mission will be failed.

 

01B91ce.jpg

   Speaking about Sokolov, where are his guys?

 

mXiDpc4.jpg

   Here are they!

 

   Target A:

Spoiler

9FEcM3H.jpg

   Grenadiers jumped back into Badgers and now my plan is to brazenly break in compound where fuel tanks are located, drop engineers to take Yankee and smash target A (fuel tanks) with 120 mm cannons of Panthers for big explosion that will destroy all 4 turrets.

 

Y5LFmaM.jpg

   APCs are in, engineers are out. They should kick away those Shpetsnaz vultures. Tanks are driving to designated position to overlook our target.

 

xGX0ZcT.jpg

   Well, we used this tactics several times, so we know what will happen.

 

Def7ScV.jpg

   Fuel tanks turned into big bright cinematic explosion that you probably wanted to look at, but look! Shiny new command truck is here!

 

a7Sri7l.jpg

   Now i'm going to attack both Delta and Bravo in attempt to split Sokolov troops. Let's see how it works.

 

   Target B... or D. Or both. 

Spoiler

L9LFzLx.jpg

   Second platoon of Panthers is moving to Delta now. Grenadiers and Badgers should provide solid AA coverage of both raiding teams.

 

2NfUm6x.jpg

   They found BTRs, that were moving from Whiseky to area near Delta. Currently troops of first raiding formation are firing at Bravo target.

 

JRykjt8.jpg

   Command vehicle arrived to help to destroy this building. Probably Russian X-Mans base or something.

 

riiaJ4A.jpg

   Kamovs are counterattcking our troops, UGVs are now charging forward to force those attack helicopters away. Before this point Sokolov was rather inactive, but looks like he is now confident enough to start action. Now we need to pay attention.

 

Fa83tOn.jpg

   Tanks are under fire, Kamovs found a place far away from both Grenadiers and Badgers, cleared place from UGVs to have a free shots on my troops.

 

pRj6sBj.jpg

   1 tank lost, Command vehicle didn't managed to push choppers away. Weak. On top of that Georgiy is moving his infantry to defend Bravo, this could be a problem.

 

0MVMoQf.jpg

   Badgers are moving to Bravo, to at least scare away Kamovs, gunships will take their place to fire at Delta target.

   Damn, those soldiers were escorted by tanks as well! Sokolov decided to accumulate enough troops to charge us in full strength, and now we need all our troops here to break this onslaught. CV is ordered to get out of T-100s LOS, Grenadiers already have eyes on enemies.

 

g64wFVC.jpg

   This platoon of tanks will be moved back as well, they didn't had much time to demolish Delta.

 

daxklyE.jpg

   Bravo is almost done, tanks are under pressure from Ogres. SGB heavy armor is now trying to take out Badgers, but this platoon of Panthers shoudl change their mind.

 

vpYS1Ai.jpg

   This SGB counter-attack is becoming worse every second! Now Sokolov throws BTRs into this fight, he is fully committed to take my troops out here.

 

aEMmWCp.jpg

   Badgers are driving Kamovs way, again, while moving away from Ogres themselves. I need to watch their positioning - they should be close enough to jump in and push SGB attack choppers out, while being far enough from this firefight that will become a slaughter of one or both sides.

 

bx1kXyt.jpg

   Gunships were borught in, but BTRs quicily understood situation and fire at them, -1 Cheetah and unit ordered to move out of BTR's range. Badgers are also leaving this area.

 

WViWmaW.jpg

   Superiority in numbers of tanks works in our favor - BTRs are beaten, Ogres lost 2 tanks so far. Only 2 gunships are left active, but all other units are more or less ok, thanks to "spreading" Ogre's firepower across 2 platoon of tanks, unit of APCs, CV and even gunships, all that plus Grenadiers firesupport with AT rockets. What left of Cheetahs are back to Delta, firing at targeted building.

 

VMDecD2.jpg

   Tanks are defeated as well! Being under fire from 3-4 units does work against those heavily armored brutal beasts.

 

kWVvUp0.jpg

   Battle on Bravo point is not done yet! Sokolov tried to sneak a sabotage team, they found our Grenadiers and fire directed at them triggered my actions to push tanks here.

 

Gtk1OXM.jpg

   Sokolov is not done yet, infantry is still swarming area between Lima target and this pile of debries that was target Bravo. Badgers kicked Kamovs out of this part of battlefield, again. 

 

q4xsKrT.jpg

   CV is attacking this sabotage team in close range using laser. We need to take them out ASAP as Shpetsnaz soldiers are trying really hard to gun down our Grenadiers. Our engineers got out of guard tower and tried to take positions at Yankee point or even behind it, but quickly were cut from it by fast actions of Shpetsnaz operatives, who took tower that was just left by Grenadiers, forcing them to hunker down near 2 miltiary trucks.

 

lMTSOpH.jpg

   Shpetsnaz soldiers are picking Grenadiers one by one as CV continues to burn them with laser.

 

NxnlSx1.jpg   That was fucking close.

 

   Target Delta:

   Kamovs are trying to attack tanks, again, but Badgers are watchful for those vultures.

   Our target, about 70% of which is damaged or destroyed, thanks to Cheetahs which were demolishing this critical structure for last several minutes.

 

geQ2hKV.jpg

   Kamovs and infantry squad in building near Bravo ruins were also defeated by Badgers and Panthers after Sokolov's concentrated assault failed.

 

wFcIfZs.jpg

   We have some time to finish Delta, but i want to finish it faster, as 2 units are nearly out of action.

   Filatov is our enemy in this operation, and he is rather serious adversary, he has a reputation for steady nerves and a methodical approach on the battlefield. My plan in this operation is to cut Genadiy's troops from nothern part of map, begin with D and L, after that we are going to get to Foxtrot and Bravo, which will gain dominance for us. Not going to get into Shpetsnaz part of map, a lot of urban combat and places for infantry to ambush us.

   Badgers are tasked to get to SPGs and clear a way for Cheetahs. Panthers are too slow to get here in time and we don't have it.

   Filatov tries to cover exit of tanks with gunships (a bit too late!), freshly deployed Badgers are rushing to drop those helicopters. Our own MBTs are getting out of battlefield.

 

   Combat in between fuel tanks:

   2 Kamovs teams and BTRs are getting to close to Badgers, we need to get to cover, while Grenadiers will work on BTRs. Badgers will drive futher to right and flank attack choppers.

   Another group of choppers is incoming! Hell, this is becoming crazy, SPGs and engineers are working on BTRs to at least help Badgers somehow.

   BTRs are chassing our APCs, WTF is this - 3 Kamovs and transports on our ass, Badgers are ordered to get out of BTRs LOS swiftly, or they will eat a lot of fire.

   Artilery now is on Foxtrot, they will allow to us to secure a road to Bravo and push infantry there. We also can deny Alpha for Genadiy's infantry with artillery barrages. In order to secure troops moving to Bravo and not allow situation when fuel tanks will blow up around them and take them out - i need to keep pressure on SGB forces. Panthers arrived, we should be able to finish BTRs.

 

   Keep pressure on!

Spoiler

   Tanks are now stomping those BTRs. Even our weak MBTs are powerfull enough to finish heavily damaged platoon of APCs!

   Tanks are now moving to intercept second unit of BTRs, probably their deployment was triggered by double gunships that i deployed.

   Need to be cautions with fire near those oil drums.

   Run away! Tanks + 8 artillery pieces will shut you down!

 

N91fJdq.jpg

   Badgers are engaging yet anothet group of Kamovs. In the same time Filatov's infantry managed to get to Delta and now they are taking it. This is kind of terrible for me, as any freshly deployed unit will need to fight with Shpetsnaz troops in order to get out of LZ. My tactis now completely shifted towards elmimination of all hostile troops, as we already managed to make big steps towards that goal by littering battlefield with shot down choppers.

 

Mwv2EXg.jpg

   BTRs are defeated. Damn, i'm still angry that Filatov managed to sneak into my rear and cut me from LZ.

   Cheetahs now are moving to this place to secure right flank of advancing Grenadiers, after they will grab Bravo i plan to move them back to take back Delta point, and those Russian Army forces are in the way.

   Probably should have fired on those things nearby, but i would like to not gamble, don't want to damage Cheetahs. In the same time Panthers and Marskmans are destroying Cockroach SPAAGs/APCs.

   And they are done as well.

 

odMuqLL.jpg

   Feels like Genadiy is low on troops inside of oil refinery. Good thing for us, we can use our quantity advantage to full potential. Main thing is to avoid parking units too close to oil tanks.

   Yet another group of Russian attack choppers was shot down by Badgers APCs.

   Cheetahs are keeping their eyes on those guys, while artillery sparys them with HE. CV is parked near Foxtrot, far enough (i hope) from those oil tanks.

   Grenadiers should be able to sneak around Bears, to re-take Delta.

   Fucking finally! This fight coult be much worse if Filatov went with more Ogres instead of endless stream of attack helicopters.

 

JhmjwUR.jpg

   That was rather hard fight during early and "middle" stages, but become easier futher because of wrong tactics that Genadiy picked and very aggressive use of Badgers by me. Although we had first really bad call here - SGB managed to outflank me and take positions right next to LZ. I can only imagine if things were slightly different what Filatov could have done against my troops inside of oil refinery...

   After we captured oil refinery, a path for bulk of Enforcer corps troops to Ft.Levksi was opened. We sabotaged it recently, so enemies should have problems with bringing Russian Army troops in mass during operation.

45Hxqgq.jpg

   SGB troops will be under command of Alexander Kurochkin, he is aggressive and prefer to attack under CAS. We will not have any kind of EU army and airforces help during conquest of Ft.Levski, which may be a problem. Not sure about tactics, but knowing that my enemy is rather aggressive and prefer offensive actions i thinking about using same plan as with Yuri Tankaev - advance as relatively single formation from A to S and then Yankee, after which Bravo and Lima should be easier targets, as bulk of enemies will try to focus on our troops located near SGB's LZ, near Y.

   Eurohordes are mowing forward, but after Shpetsnaz will deal with them, we will have EU army support. Although EU Army is even weaker than our own units vs Shpetsnaz, so it is not a big deal.

   Base defenders are rushing towards defensive positions.

 

   Exchange of courtesies

Spoiler

hbUZNrH.jpg

   Kamovs started with usual "gun down those who are weak". I went with double gunships unit, so we have highly mobile formation in early battle, plus second team of Cheetahs should also gain experience, while being under cover of second unit that already saw some action in previous operations.

 

4EIfUu5.jpg

   Gunships assisting EU troops, this weal clear road to Yankee. 2nd platoon of Badger APCs is on the way - i expect more gunships to show up in early stages of operation.

 

HjICUJB.jpg

   Badgers exchanging fire with Kamovs, while BTRs are appraching. I tried to save this squad of EU army infantry here, but because of Cockroaches this position can not be hold.

 

JDUeSTg.jpg

   Badgers managed to get out, and Kamovs are now focused on Eurohorde near Delta. Cheetahs have a window to do some shenanigans. 

 

IeMAVV2.jpg

   HOT Missiles upgrade put in use. BTRs are focused on infantry squad, we can dump some amount of ammunition without receiving much fire.

 

8dQbwro.jpg

   BTRs are getting away, finishing 1st squad of European Federation regular army. Second squad found a solid cover, they should hold for much longer.

 

IH9Yz1L.jpg

   Kurochnik hit my gunships with EMP, allowing those BTRs to escape. Good thing that helicopters are now hovering over adug in infantry squad, so SGB will not have easy time with shooting at Cheetahs.

 

sfc9B1b.jpg

   Cockroaches survived attack and move back to Zulu, i bet they are going to pick up Shpetsnaz soldiers and move them somewhere else.

 

2in0BnE.jpg

   Now clearing Lima. Tanks and AA cover is already deployed, time to put SPGs on a battlefield. Grenadiers captured Sierra, next target is going to be Yankee. Meanwhile BTRs are moving from Z to Whiskey, they will probably drop engineers to grab it.

   Cheetahs are now back to S-Y line, and looks like Alexander's troops are attempting to occupy Yankee point.

   This team of Shpetsnaz operatives managed to find a good cover, but we managed to force them away from Yankee. Kurochnik's troops took Whiskey and their next target is very likely Delta.

 

FviAg1z.jpg

   Kamovs wanted to help to infanty, but APCs and their missiles are vigilant. Panthers MBTs almost arrived to this place, they will deal with infantry.

 

etBfbx3.jpg

   Alexander likes to use EMPs, now he managed to stop MBTs from attcking infantry. BTRs arrived from Whiskey uplink and they are trying to get involved in this fight, we need to stop them as they can do some damage to disabled MBTs or Badger APCs.

 

fg5DG7F.jpg

   Second team of Badgers was working as distraction, so Cheetahs managed to get close enough to BTRs. SGB pushes infantry out of building to charge, trying to use this moment.

   BTRs are defeated, gunships are moved out of danger zone as Panthers and second team of APCs recovered from EMP.

 

8WaNyCj.jpg

   Alexander is now throwing second wave of his troops at us.

 

ft2zcZE.jpg

   MBTs, using their superior firing trange, defeated Shpetsnaz operatives, but second wave troops are appraching in force - a squad on our left, T-100s platoon supported by second squad of footmobiles and all this under cover of Kamovs. My troops placement is not good enough to stop this attack, Badgers needs to be repositioned. SPGs almost arrived to this part of military base, very timely.

 

LAVwhe7.jpg

   2nd unit of transports is under fire, they also need to be moved away. Grenadiers are rushing towards Yankee to capture it ASAP.

 

PVD7vxw.jpg

   T-100s are supported by engineers, we must finish Ogres before they will get around this building, or i will be forces to drop Yankee and retreat. SPGs are starting to fire, Cheetahs tasked to attack Shpetsnaz' slow but heavily armored monsters.

 

TqdmVLQ.jpg

   At least those things are not seriously upgraded!

 

G6OENoe.jpg

   Grenadiers are under fire, but after they will get to Yankee, they can get out of LOS of T-100s thanks to big ass building that is holdng computers of ICBM/AA defence system and call for UGVs reinforcement for uplink defence. Badgers are already using it to avoid harmful attention of Russian tankers.

   Cockroaches decided to not fuck with 120 mm tank cannons, but soldiers have different opinion. Panthers are now shelling them while they are in the open.

   Bravo is in our hands, let's see how Alexander will deal with that situation.

 

CKwbGR2.jpg

   A bit different from what i expected - Cheetahs are out, but shockwave managed to grab one of Badger APCs units. At least main troops - tanks, SPGs and their support - APCs/AA and Grenadiers are Ok. I can work with that force.

 

jvlZxkf.jpg

   Kamovs are thinking that it is time to attack, but we still have good AA firepower.

 

npuC0KZ.jpg

   Another group of BTRs. Also, it seems that Kurochnik is assembling some sort of assault formation right on his landing area. We need to prepare for that, SPGs are repositioning to better cover our troops. I moved them a bit futher as those positions looks to be easier to defend and prevent gunships from penetrating our airspace.

 

fJ5v6hq.jpg

   Like those who tried to get it. 

 

ZYiSsXi.jpg

   Or those. BTW, i called 2 more gunship teams and CV for support.

8dKRQKm.jpg

   Panthers are moved back to better position - Shpetsnaz troops are incoming. Tanks, infantry, attack helicopters - standart attack formation for Kurochnik.

 

bVF1vAU.jpg

   Badgers are also moving to different position, so if we need to retreat, they will not be trapped here with T-100s. And Grenadiers are taking Delta, i hope this will force Alexander to use some of his troops in order to clear his left flank from our presence.

 

Esz9eIw.jpg

   Shpetsnaz attack begins.

   Tanks are indeed changed direction and now are moving somewhere else, making things easier for us here.

   Cheetahs were tasked with scouting where those T-100s went and we found them. We can hunt them down, as they don't have any AA weaponry.

   Quick look at flank - Kamovs are rushing towards us. As there are no ground units visible, Badgers are moved ahead to shield Cheetahs from their evil twins. Tanks are turning away.

   After previous operation in Ft. Levski was done, Eastern front became rather silent. SGB is not active, so we were moved on Western front, where Americans made a landing and advanced through Spain, capturing it in the process.

EK9ZQLo.jpg

   JSF are trying to take over Italian space center and we are going to stop those land grabing yankee. In this operation we will have airsupport, but our battalion can't use EU army support for now.

 

plPbsjH.jpg

   Our opponent is Roger Funk, commander of one of JSF units in Europe, and our task is to defeat him in direct combat by destroying Roger's troops. He is an outspoken proponent of using attack helicopters on the offense and likes to strike fast, keeping his enemy off balance. Not sure how to fight against him using our weak equipment, but my plan "A" is to try to advance with wide frontline, use AFVs on left flank and infantry on right flank and in central build up area. In places where enemy is concentrate his attacks i will push avaliable troops and QRF. This should allow to decrease space to maneuver to JSF and decrease negative effects from casualties on one of flanks.

 

PmI1rNZ.jpg

   For this plan i'm deploying troops with 2 infantry squads to push Space center, artillery as supporting element for both flanks, Badgers to counter enemy air attacks and to haul squishies around, CV to act as mobile pillbox to reinforce forces under pressure. During operation 2 gunship units will be put to work as QRF and later probably tanks or another unit of APCs, depending of what type of forces Funk will use more.

Eau4LLX.jpg

   Eurohordes are out, hunting for Americans.

 

V68AeoY.jpg

   Battlefield map. Big runway will be probably a place where AFVs will clash, while urban areas will be infantry dominated. Badgers are moving right to Lima uplink with infantry squad to grab it and turn into forward defensive position.

   Eurohorde flooding build up Space center.

   First American tourists arrived early.

 

   First clashes:

Spoiler

QThi1Go.jpg

   We are greeting invaders with some fireworks.

 

vOmFKS3.jpg

   Pieces of 1 destroyed gunships are flying around.

 

HjCM6PX.jpg

   Blackfoots are retreating now, but AFV unit was spotted advancing towards our side of battlefield. 

 

pSeNOqL.jpg

   Fastbacks and Schwarzkopfs are pushing through runway, time to do something.

 

P2SWLSH.jpg

   Oh, wow, Americans decided to push through runway with a whole party. 3 AFV units, 2 US Army squads and 1 team of gunships.

 

j5qFMxP.jpg

   EU army troops are now targeted by this big ass  group and they are destroying them fast. Marksmans started to shell this assault formation.

 

LaiGkuX.jpg

   On right flank Kommandos re-activated Lima and now are fighting with US Army troops.

 

uWMjEz4.jpg

 

saNnUVf.jpg

   On left flank CV was moved ahead to at least slow down this party train until Panthers arrive. SPGs continue to engage enemies, now they are firing at IFVs.

 

swZTnpl.jpg

   Because of IFVs Cheetahs are held away from Funk's assault group. Panthers arrived and dealing with Fastbacks.

 

Lkh9EwS.jpg

   Fastbacks managed to find a LOS on Marksman SPGs, they are moving to cover. JSF MBTs are going to be hit with airstrike.

 

cpGuobd.jpg

 

wU0wGY6.jpg

   MBTs lost 2 vics, but i'm affraid they will push futher, Badgers were tasked to distract them. Still can't use Cheetahs as second team of IFVs is somewhere near.

 

l7i7yp3.jpg

   And here are 2 teams of IFVs visible behind Schwarzopfs, this is going to be hard attack to stop.

 

J0nprkp.jpg

   APCs lost 1 vic from tanks fire, but we managed to knock them out. Now our command truck is targeted by Roger's artillery and this mean Cheetahs have new task.

 

NtCTSut.jpg

   Panthers are holding their positions, Fastbacks can't crack this forces.

 

   Back and forth:

Spoiler

6JDNCxC.jpg

   Our gunships found Spartans. We have very little time to do anything, as Cheetahs are under fire.

 

I3FAo7L.jpg

   Dropped HOT missile strike on one of SPG teams and now choppers are exiting this strike, can't digress to A point as gunships will be under fire from IFVs and from JSF troops at Delta, so only way is to central point of battlefield, through small arms fire of some sneaky infantry squad in forest nearby.

 

6iXWQZR.jpg

   1 gunship lost, but this is rather light casualties for such deep attack.

 

pbAVZ0T.jpg

   We are under heavy fire, especially command vehicle. Time to make our move - we are going to attack in attempt to smash through JSF troops and get to Spartans. As he don't have tanks to counter our armored assault, this feels like only good option that don't involve retreating.

 

sejGPX5.jpg

   Cheetahs and airstrike were used to finish this team of IFVs as Panthers just destroyed another one.

 

dQOQTAD.jpg

   Now Blackfoots are going to eat a lot of fire from Badgers and Cheetahs.

 

cGWflDq.jpg

   Spartans are just near us. Don't see second battery of SPGs, probably retreated after our HOT missile barrage from gunships.

 

U1ttoiS.jpg

   Grenadiers that were shielding SPGs now tasked to capture Sierra, we can turn it into a stronghold thanks to UGVs and cover near building itself, and it will be a good place to park our own SPGs. Spartans almost finished, as Roger's troops are thin here for a moment.

 

xDNmcdx.jpg

   Blackfoots are trying to cover Spartans retreat, Badgers will deal with them.

 

63qY6AW.jpg

   A sqaud of Pioneers is on A, called airstrike on them, plus SPGs will shell them now. Kommandos are pushing on right flank at this moment, i'm not sure if they should take Whiskey or save time and push directly into combat, using forests as a cover and defilade.

 

Ic3cFHH.jpg

 

nraq4Ya.jpg

   JSF reinforcements looks like is starting to arrive.

 

   Runway of death:

Spoiler

ObqJ3JM.jpg

   Badgers are attacked by very cocky infantry squad, they lost one vic.

 

7p5e7u5.jpg

   Cheetahs trying to gun down this infantry unit in the open while Panthers are pushing forward to clash with Roger's IFVs.

 

BeqEr21.jpg

   Badgers are shielding Panthers from counter-attacking team of gunships. Tanks now switched their attention to infantry squad that is under MG fire from our own attack helicopters. Feels like Cheetahs are firing weak, european bullets instead of proper stuff, as 7 helicopters can't kill this group of JSF infantry in the open fast enough.

 

zmRjxVU.jpg

   Ooops, Funk have lust 5 units left and he now can drop WMD at us. Troops are trying to move out of possible place of kinetic rods impact.

 

toQw9o7.jpg

   He crashed Foxtrot uplink with EMP strike, but i was prepared and upgraded 2 more uplinks to have reliable air support. Eurocopters are tasked to finish this unit ASAP.

 

GjGZEdj.jpg

   Well, that could be worse. Badgers were nearly defeated and i would ordered them to get out of battlefield. Now SPGs have not much protection on ground, but at least their flank is secured (Sierra) and both gunships team are up.

 

nXjG7Id.jpg

   Roger Funk tries to deploy AFV unit, as i don't have anything on ground to stop them for sure (if those are IFVs), decided to use our own WMD against them.

 

K26709R.jpg

   Just 3 left. Marksmans are going to shell infantry squad that survived our Space Laser attack.

 

TpkQKaG.jpg

   Grenadiers are now moving ahead to secure our artillery pieces from possible rush of Americans, with Cheetahs shadowing a team of Blackfoots in order to avoid any inappropriate thoughts on their side.

 

8jJK3cu.jpg

   I'm trying to destroy this unit at any cost, as just few of them left to win, but Blackfoots not accepting this firefight.

 

0awTRuF.jpg

   Marksmans almost defeated this squad.

 

5abE2Ei.jpg

   3rd unit showed up. I deployed Panthers, in any case they are capable of destroying Fastbacks with ease.

 

6xrniHw.jpg

   Our SPGs are now shelling IFVs, while Grenadiers were pushed futher into next building, from which they are keeping Blackfoots in check.

 

qsG0W9S.jpg

   Airstrike incoming....

 

7docn7h.jpg

   Only 2 gunships are left in their unit! At this point fate of Roger's battalion is becoming obvious.

 

   Finishing move:

Spoiler

Z5kusG5.jpg

   Kommandos are going to lay an ambush here, their task is to not allow infantry to get away from my main assault group through forests.

 

pTytg4i.jpg

   Helicopters are providing recon for artillery, we are clearing Delta to have more space to move around last troops that Funk assembled together in rather tight space.

 

PFNGJIG.jpg

 

prbxkns.jpg

 

mGAGXUh.jpg

   Reinforcements arrived. Last move and we are done with American tourists in Italy.

 

zyKMuU6.jpg

   Another airstrike called against IFVs while Panther MBTs are closing in to their firing positions.

 

QUR9fvH.jpg

 

2FCO5RY.jpg

   SPGs defeated last infantry squad, gunships were shot down, those are last enemies.

 

POnOQbt.jpg

 

chflRLe.jpg

   Roger started very aggressive and was rather hard to stop, but run out of steam after WMD strike exchanges. He went very heavy on my left flank, leaving right and central area clear, which allowed to me to concentrate troops and push him back.

   Meanwhile, SGB and JSF have a heroic battle for Washington D.C. I feel like our battles are more like a sideshow compared to that, :D

   As a result of previous mission Federation managed to reclaim Le Ceito military base, but JSF is not giving up and Fatties started an attack to take it. 

C4gsOvW.jpg

   Good thing that Americans don't have any kind of support from their airforces and ground troops during this operation.

 

Spoiler

R9o6rPj.jpg

   Nathaniel Goudie is rather aggressive tactician, i'm going to act around this fact. Most likely he will push through central road (D-S-B) so majority of troops should be there. Infantry will get to F-W line as it is contains a lot of buildings so AFVs will not feel good there. Right flank probably will not be that active as it is open fields where artillery, tanks and gunships will be able to stop attacks without much problems.

 

b0FomeN.jpg

   Grenadiers will work on central line uplinks, while Kommandos will be flanking unit. All other units will be deployed during active phase of operation.

   Kommandos.

 

FJJcjf1.jpg

   Badgers are moving together with EU army infantry to support them, while infantry is moving to their positions. A group of JSF attack choppers are visible far away.

 

   First firefights:

Spoiler

DepfP68.jpg

   Nathaniel troops are also moving to central area, in mass.

 

SQVNocT.jpg

   We are starting with cannon fodder type of Americans.

 

LrWMybX.jpg

   Blackfoots also starting to engage our troops. As SPGs are already working on enemy troops, Badgers are ordred to move out of area, but at such angle that Blackfoots are going to be under our fire.

 

p2LFP3y.jpg

   Fastbacks are getting close, making Badgers to stay outside of their firing range is a priority.

 

BPchEI0.jpg

   Time to use our shiny new microwave weapon.

 

IwSf7jS.jpg

   -1 Blackfoot and they are now retreating. IFVs look like are not stopping here and rushing towards our positions.

 

3gVyNzx.jpg

   SPGs now under fire from this very aggressive rush of Goudie's IFVs, didn't expected that. First team is trying to get the fuck out of LOS of Fastback's autocannons, while Kommandos were ordered to cover them.

 

FPFCsPk.jpg

   Pressure from our troops and second team of SPGs paid off and IFVs are retreating after loosing 2 vics, Badgers are tasked with blocking their exit, those asshole should be wiped out.

 

UvRjUpM.jpg

   And those rushers are smashed.

 

sjMKBVD.jpg

   Cheetahs are under attack of tanks, but we are still in better position as AA coverage of those tanks was defeated few seconds ago.

 

eSyPiJG.jpg

   Now Marksmans are going to deal with Schwarzkopfs, Cheetahs will keep their eyes on them and jump into action if needed.

 

WT7Y1tP.jpg

   

p0Nrp62.jpg

   And here are SPGs, i will try to get to them, Panthers and Badgers will assist in that counter-push.

 

   Counter-counter attack

Spoiler

ec9wXo4.jpg

   Now we can try to brekthrough Nathaniel's troops near Sierra - heavily damaged MBTs, team of SPGs and gunship team with 3 choppers up. For this i will use our own gunships, Panther tanks, Badger APCs/AA missile system and 2 SPG teams, which should be just enough to accomplish this attack. Badgers now are pressuring Blackfoots to go away.

 

rG2wv7A.jpg

   Flying closer revealed that there is an infantry squad at Sierra and Goudie ordred tanks to turn back.

 

FO2ICkF.jpg

   2nd team of Blackfoots appeared, this is bad. 1 gunships already lost. I need to push gunships away, which will leave tanks and Badgers outnumbered by Americans.

 

bd8ZdCi.jpg

   Badgers are attacked by JSF MBTs as they were trying to push gunships away, they are fucked at this point.

 

Ki6QSC2.jpg

   I'm not ordrering tanks to get out, will try to "trade" them for enemy tanks and probably SPGs.

 

PJ7kuUw.jpg

 

bGafiMO.jpg

   American armor is defeated, but we lost both APCs and MBTs in this failed attack. Calling CV reinforcements to provide AA support against 2 groups of hostile gunships, Nathaniel will likely to use them aggressively.

 

RYdvdp7.jpg

   SPGs were EMP'ed, Cheetahs need to shield them.

 

8VMXGlN.jpg

   Grenadiers upgraded Bravo just in time, we can now call air support. One team of gunships was finished and completely killed by jets. Marksmans are under artillery fire of Spartan SPGs, they need to relocate.

 

YIL3eXy.jpg

   Blackfoots are providing intel on our units position for their artillery.

 

hqTJOGl.jpg

   Now Grenadiers are under fire as our SPGs moved out of LOS of gunships or Nathaniel is planning to take Bravo. CV is on the ground, starting to move on right side of river to a bridge near Sierra. I'm planning a slow counter-counter "attack" to lift some pressure from other units that are crucial for my battleplan.

 

7uM6zW3.jpg

   Charlemagne command truck is pushing forward and managed to drive off JSF birds. Something is moving on bridge, it looks like.

 

8E6AUJG.jpg

   Those were Ghosts from Sierra uplink. SPGs were shelling areas where Spartans were parked, forcing them to reposition, now we can use them to fire at thoe guys.

 

ZF7a48P.jpg

 

Lf63vlx.jpg

 

JGAr9b9.jpg

   That was a quick defeat of those guys. Meanwhile our own light infantry squad is busy with Foxtrot uplink upgrade, they should go for Whiskey soon.

 

URYpJaL.jpg

   Now my gunships are providing intel to our SPGs on enemy units positions.

 

   Attempt №2

Spoiler

2XmajUu.jpg

   SPGs have air and infantry guarding it.

 

QoGH05Q.jpg

   CV is going to work as AA system, to cover damaged Cheetahs and generally shield SPGs from Blackfoots. Damn, there is a second team of artillery and we are light on air vehicles...

 

mCr0DGJ.jpg

   Spartans are trying to destroy it, while our own SPGs are trying to destroy them.

 

2UaMW4F.jpg

   Calling EMP strike on those guys to give time to our SPGs and for CV to recover.

 

J4ci2hM.jpg

   Blackfoots flied away, giving us a free strike on Spartans.

 

kv2RSwt.jpg

   European Federation army recon team, good-ish against choppers and infantry in the open. They should be a not bad reinforcements for CV. I'm trying to keep units on frontline minimal now, because Kommandos are moving towards Whiskey uplink and after we will capture it Nathaniel will start to fling WMD at us. Blackfoots managed to sneak a missile barrage attack on Cheetahs, they are now 2 machines down.

 

2FnWxaS.jpg   Marksmans started to shell second team of Spartans as first one is nearly defeated and retreating (most likely out of this battlefield).

 

gBOdW7h.jpg

   JSF deployed another team of gunships and now this pack of vultures are moving towards Kommandos, they probably saw them when they were approaching W point.

 

gLjbV3B.jpg

   2nd recon team of EU army arrived and now is engaging Spartans, forcing them to retreat.

 

Zde7DBQ.jpg

   Kommandos are under fire of 8 gunships, called EMP on this big group of targets. This should give our infantry time to damage them and probably scare away. Seeing that this big flock of birds was flying towards our infantry, i ordred Kommandos to garrison nearby building. This also give a Grenadiers a free way to Sierra uplink.

 

VS6acdw.jpg

   Gunships are flying away, probably they were ordered to deal with second Army Recon team that was fucking up Spartans.

 

gt8JSoD.jpg

   Nathaniel wasted some time trying to destroy Recon team, this allowed to us to advance.

 

id9MFh2.jpg

   CV was parked in such way that it is shielding Cheetahs from Blackfoots. Now they have easier time attacking Goudie's artillery.

 

7kt4Wov.jpg

   Second attempt of JSF gunships to attack Kommandos. Enemy understand that if our light infantry gets to W, battle would be turned into our favor.

 

D5OmUve.jpg

   Infantry team that was protecting SPGs near Sierra is finished, while Cheetahs are starting to damage Spartans near Delta point. CV is under fire, but they are giving time for Cheetahs to defeat those artillery pieces.

 

MSoKnec.jpg

   Almost done.

 

J5aDPUK.jpg

   SPGs are finished, Cheetahs need to digress, as Blackfoots are moving back.

 

wVjvmj5.jpg

 

KZWJx5j.jpg

   Heh, looks like Nathaniel understood that Whiskey is lost for him and now tries to damage control by turning his attention to Alpha uplink. Sierra is being captured, so it will not help for him, as Kommandos are pushing to W as well.

 

   5 minutes away

Spoiler

AILL1KH.jpg

   Time to embrace before impact. Moving SPGs away from each other, as they are likely to be hit.

 

tegucl4.jpg

   Nathaniel crashed Lima uplink (probably he is angry about those Recon teams). I already ordered reinforcements - 2 APCs teams and a Panthers unit.

 

v6W0yAA.jpg

   First rod took out CV and killed all UGVs under it's command.

 

UYu9oQw.jpg

   Second one was worse - it took out 1 SPG team and Grenadiers at Sierra. At least we have serious AA coverage and heavy armor to punch through JSF troops. 1st team of SGPs is hiding under cover of Recon team that i deployed previously as rear back up position for SPGs. Not really surprised that it is now useful. Jets were called to strike one of gunship team.

 

dTff4Ki.jpg

   Looks like second team is coming back, time to drop our own space WMD.

 

cIv2sdF.jpg

 

Oz8dzJd.jpg

   I see 2 evac choppers, so 2 units were defeated with this strike. Not bad. I'm calling SPG, gunships and CV, this will completely restore my forces.

 

40RoKG9.jpg

   Kommandos took W and restarted victory countdown, our EW dominance is strong. Nathaniel brought some of his own AFvs, we are going to fight on central line yet again.

 

c96118g.jpg

   Because i have 2 units of Badgers and just single platoon of tanks, decided to use Badgers as sponge for special attacks of JSF troops. Fastbacks are wasting their missile barrage on a unit that have a back up team.

 

Vl6hjYm.jpg

   Badgers pressured choppers out, time to crush Americans.

   Just 1 minute left but JSF didn't gave up. They are pushing IFVs and tanks to Alpha point. Called airstrike on tanks, just to be sure.

   Goudie is bouncing between taking Alpha and counter-attacking our assault group.

wt49DaR.jpg

 

ARQTPhM.jpg

   Kommandos are overwatching Delta. So enemy managed to deploy plenty of troops, but this doesn't matter - 7 seconds left. Even if he managed to stop our EW dominance, Artillery would make a short work of AFVs, with Kommandos destroying infantry and 8 tanks crushing what is left of enemies. CV and Badgers would be good enough AA cover for our advance.

   1 KIA is UGV units that were protecting CV during Kinetic rods strike.

   We performed well enough and pushed those World police guys out of military base and advanced futher into Spain.

 

tOshmZx.jpg

   Meanwhile Shpetsnaz captured capital of US. Probably should have sended more troops there instead of trying to take over Southern France or Italy.

   I payed not enough attention to this mission, because of my previous experience with Jordan on lower difficulties. Although he still lost this battle badly, only my misjudgment of when this battle will be over really screwed my forward troops, they could have been moved back to regroup and face a wave of reinforcements after WMD strike better.

   Looks like JSF is trying to conduct landing operation here, again. We need to stop this attempt, deny American foots our great beaches of Portugal!

   Joseph is an adaptive tactician, so we need to plan around that. As usual for this map i will try to take Y-Z line and tie bulk of enemy troops in battle, while our infantry will sneak to uplinks and take them. After initial phase my actions will be adjusted for Gonzales actions.

 

mno6MZN.jpg

   CV is generally capable to resist to any units (except SPGs at long range for obvious reasons) and because i don't know what Gonzales will deploy early on, we will take it as first to deploy.  Grenadiers and Badgers - as usual.

   We start with US Army infantry.

   JSF troops are moving towards Yankee. We have some time to clear this place, SPGs are on the way to support us with dislodging JSF from nearest uplinks.

   Cheetahs are using a moment to take cheap shots at JSF troops, while Grenadiers are taking Delta.

   Gunships are getting out of Yankee, too much troops are there. We need to crack this group of JSF by other means.

   SPGs are moving to forward firing position.

   Fastbacks are distracted by EU army troops, we can try to take few more shots at them.

   Well, damn. EMP disabled 3 vehicles and Cheetahs are under fire.

   EU infantry are supporting us, we have a chance to not take damage after that EMP.

   EMP strike hit CV and APCs again, but Cheetahs are trying to sneak into enemy part of battlefield.

 

06WOsLN.jpg

   Tanks and IFVs are already here...

 

eaB76I4.jpg

    ... and they are trying to gun down vehicles disabled by EMP. SPGs are shelling them, but we are not going to survive without casualties. Joseph is trying to maximize gains from this moment.

 

FuZWMgD.jpg

   Cheetahs found Spartans. Meanwhile Joseph used 3rd EMP strike against CV in attempt to hold it in place.

   Spartans are shelling CV, we need to destroy Gonzales' artillery, fast.

kP11EwH.jpg

   Cheetahs lost gunship, pushed them away to recover. Grenadiers are occupying hill between D and Y, observing part of area near Lima. JSF troops advanced to Lima and probably are going to flank us. Grenadiers are going to overwatch possible path of flanking attack.

 

3WQXt0c.jpg

   Panthers driving towards hill, i spotted a group of saboteur and SPGs are shelling this squad by using groundfire.

 

dSNloop.jpg

   Great, those guys were defeated before they managed to get to Grenadiers and shoot them from close range. Jordan tried to open a path to Delta and my Grenadiers were in the way, thats why this team of Ghosts was moving towards them.

 

XSFEV6K.jpg

   Meanwhile Grenadiers spotted Americans, pushing forward. Our soldiers are engaging that squad.

 

bMeos9V.jpg

   Panthers are firing at US Army troops that took shelter between 2 uplinks. We are going to clear this area to advance futher.

 

AO0ippc.jpg

   CV is under artillery barrage, again. We need to destroy those Spartans, we were safe for few moments because main troops were not spotted or because SPGs were relocating after Cheetah's raid.

 

9mtJjuJ.jpg

   Badgers are pushing Americans away, i'm trying to carve a safe corridor towards Gonzales' artillery pieces.

 

9SHEiya.jpg

  SPGs received new target - enemy engineers between L and Y, so only gunships now will be used to destroy hostile SPGs. Thats why Badgers are not going to stop, they are going to escort our gunships right to Spartans, so we can fuck them up, badly.

 

HQR671W.jpg

   Time for a lunch.

 

4ovdx1m.jpg

   Almost done, Gonzales now throws his choppers at us in attempt to counter our efforts. Badgers are working now extra hard to push those vultures away. At the same time SPGs and tanks are finishing last troops near uplinks - US troops and guarding UGVs.

 

dxVYqhX.jpg

   Done.

 Zn5MfLb.jpg

   Perfect opportunity to deal with Blackfoots!

 

85Mr4IZ.jpg

   Grenadiers are going to push to Lima, thats why Marksmans are clearing the way for them, destroying UGVs.

 

a05mb1Z.jpg

   Not getting out of it!

 

JOFrxct.jpg

   Excellent! Gonzales isn't doing that great, he used a lot of resources for 3 EMP strikes.    

 

   Dominance:

Spoiler

nSDkmmU.jpg

   Gonzales found few bucks in his pocket to get those new shiny IFVs.

 

IOWa32T.jpg

   Enforcer corps troops are dominating majority of battlefield. Grenadiers are almost on Lima point, they will grab it and deny some income to Joseph.

   Panthers now have a toy to play around.

   JSF have only 4 regions under their control. Looks like SGB stopped operations against us and our leadership tasked us to fight Americans for a reason...

   And we continue, now - in USA.

b9aE7qc.jpg

   Enforcer corps organized assault on US in order to shield main land Europe from grabing hands of Americans. In this operation we will be far from European Federation military bases, so no air or ground support to our troops, we need to win this on our own, while enemy will have ability to call USAF to support JSF manpower, that will try to stop us.

 

Spoiler

dyRRY3W.jpg

   Roger Funk, again. Last time we met in Italy, he was rather aggressive in early stages of battle, but rather quickly lost momentum. In this operation i will go with defensive tactics in first part of operation and then switch to pressuring him after bulk of his troops will be dismantled.

 

6dzKDB6.jpg

   Tanks, CV and SPG will help to establish defensive line and shatter Funk's attempts to dislodge us. Choppers will act as scouts and vultures, hunting down isolated units if they can. Grenadiers will move to uplinks and reinforce them with UGVs.

   Archon found a road around bulk of my troops, now it just rushing to my SPGs. Troops now prioritize Roger's CV, he is very cocky with that deep strike.

 

oMb0CpI.jpg

   Badgers are dealing with yet fresh team of gunships, Funk is keeping a lot of pressure on us. Assembling troops in one big defensive formation was a good idea so far. Tanks are called back to deal with infantry.

   SPGs, gunships and now our own CV managed to force Archon to change its mind about pushing deeper.

   Finishing move:

   Close support WMD strike, heh. I have enough resources to replace this assault group completely.

   SPGs moving closer to JSF landing area, under cover of CV. Cheetahs will be their guiding hand. Looks like something is being deployed by Americans.

   And here were are, 1 step away from shattering JSF and ending US forces existance. JSF is holding just 1 region and in desperate attempt to survive they are attacking a swamp that we secured in previous battle, throwing everything they at us.

UbcspKV.jpg

   Our enemy is Roger Funk, again. I will be not surprised if he is the last commander that represents Joint Strike Force. My plan will be generally the same as in previous operation against him on this swamp - in first phase we will be very defensive, slowly taking uplinks that are easier to grab and in second phase (after bulk of JSF troops will be destroyed) we will conduct full-scale counter-attack. He is rather aggessive and prefer to use gunships, so bulk of my troops have to be in close proximity to Badger APCs and their AA missiles.

   Heavily damaged team of APCs are parked here to at least shield some of troops nearby. We are stil in 1st phase of my plan, can't shatter attacking troops. I'm pushing infantry to Yankee in attempt to decrease pressure on forces near Delta and cut some of resources flow to Funk.

 

   Is it time for 2nd phase, mr great tactician?

Spoiler

1t5ER9Q.jpg

   Um... how? We didn't taken any uplinks to put our EW system to work... Great, we lost 2 units, 1 unexperienced APC team is KIA and a squad of Grenadiers veterans are also KIA. This is rather bad in long run, as i didn't used many engineers in a first place so not many of them have any kind of experience and capabilities of those veterans. Roger, you are dipshit asshole, you will pay, you will tun away with a tail between your legs!

   Angrily i called an airstrike on gunship unit in attempt to clear skies a bit.

 

8KG6syk.jpg

   They are KIA as well, we still need to finish 2 more gunship teams and AFVs moving to Delta.

 

FZ7HVOJ.jpg

   That AFV unit were damaged Fastbacks, now they are going to get enough attention from me.

 

H8hWVC2.jpg

   Blackfoots trying to use a moment, but i switched damaged platoon of Badgers to a fresh, new team of APCs.

 

D60kzTY.jpg

   Roger changed tactics, it seems - now he is pushing infantry through forests on my left flank. One squad is running directly to Zulu with aim to establish EW dominance, again. But our Grenadiers are on Yankee, hacking it.

 

PddMopy.jpg

   American soldiers are escorted by MBTs.

 

Bjdl4mW.jpg

   Tanks working on nearest squad, with support of SPGs. We need to clear area around us so later we can smash enemies at Zulu.

   Gunships exchanging missiles.

 

IO4q1oj.jpg   Gunships are done.

 

rcmpAbB.jpg

   Airstrike should get those guys.

 

2qLtwwG.jpg

   And they are done. We can now push forward, feels like Roger is losing initiative.

   EMP will hold them in place.

   With JSF total defeat, our troops have only 1 enemy left - SGB of Russia.

Z6Abp6A.jpg

   SGB decided to not wait and they are launching an assault on Maxwell base that we captured from Americans earlier. We are tasked to hold this base or defeat Shpetsnaz troops.

 

Spoiler

VbC0ryc.jpg

   Novikov is leading Shpetsnaz troops in this fight, he is sharp tactician and should be taken seriously. My plan is to take all uplinks inside of Maxwell base walls perimeter (W-S-L-Z-A uplinks) which should be enough to put enemies on losing side as they will have less uplinks that us; or try to defeat enemies completely, depending on situation.

 

NZUqZbC.jpg

   Usual first wave troops composition, but in case of Grenadiers my 2nd best unit have not much experience and capabilities as one that was killed under WMD strike during battle with last JSF battalion. 

 

6F2cy59.jpg

 

g6TyU0U.jpg

 

d1Ff4mo.jpg

   Eurohordes are rushing towards parts of base near entrances.

 

n4E1XyF.jpg

   Map of battlefield.  5 uplinks are located inside of military base, so enemies can get to them through only 3 entrances - near Lima, next to Whiskey and not far from Alpha. Entrance near Lima is blocked by barricades, so AFVs are unlikely to be a problem there.

 

5MOLcOq.jpg

   Kamovs are first to be spotted, as usual.

 

   First encounter:

Spoiler

l83AUF0.jpg

   First soldiers of Russian army are charging entrance near W point, with 2nd group already reaching areas near Alpha. Badgers and Cheetah gunships are starting to fire at attackers in order to clear area. We are taking Lima, while Novikov's troops are taking 2 uplinks, which means he went with more infantry-heavy deployment.

 

T6rpHDQ.jpg

   BTRs are driving closer to entrance to the base, Arkadiy probably will use them to attack gunships or haul infantry to one of uplinks inside of base.

 

jZSz1WU.jpg

   Badger arrived and helped to wipe out Russian cannon fodder. 3rd group of conscripts is spotted while rushing towards Sierra uplink.

 

XE5solv.jpg

   2nd group advanced rather deep. EMP was used to disable Badgers.

 

ifznSh4.jpg

   SGB troops are now at entry point, Novikov will try to push inside, for sure.

 

Y3UAqG6.jpg

   BTRs now are pushing, Badgers need to disappear from their current pos.

 

Y4NI2wP.jpg

   CV is now working as a roadblock.

 

Zyp1Tuy.jpg

   BTRs finished several squads, CV is still slowly moving closer to Shpetsnaz APCs to shield Badgers from them.

 

t797tEU.jpg

   Badgers are busy with Kamovs that are trying to get in military base airspace.

 

Wb9tCbd.jpg

   Now Cheetahs can scout what SGB deployed so far.

 

CoGTP7X.jpg

   Zhukovs, infantry and another AFV unit.

 

GvucbKz.jpg

   Cheetahs are back from scouting fly, we need to embrasse for serious onslaught.

 

   Onslaught begins:

Spoiler

3c1XMRK.jpg

   Our SPGs now have MRLS modules to use, and we will drop their contents on Arkadiy's troops.

 

4apQPAl.jpg

 

y4eaawG.jpg

   Cheetahs finished those guys before main assault began. We need to do as much damage as possible before breakthrough push starts.

 

kUl1qZQ.jpg

   That is a bad place to park...

 

iaBPkYn.jpg

   Novikov decided to attack now, so BTRs are attacking us now, launching missiles at SPGs. BTRs showed up in worst time as Marksmans were in forward position to launch MRLS strike. SPGs are fucked if we will not stop BTRs.

 

3GlIFeY.jpg

   1 SPG is out, damn. Badgers and Cheetahs are going back to attack BTRs. Didn't expected that those guys will ignore CV and go for SPG directly. At least Zhukovs were taken out of action by big fireball created by fuel tanks explosion.

 

Gd2Qz2f.jpg

   SPGs are fucked.

 

Sr7eZp4.jpg

   BTRs are defeated by combined firepower of several units, but those motherfuckers managed to drop infantry, and now those guys are engaging what left of SPG unit.

 

bQrYdm0.jpg

   Fucker dropped EMP to allow infantry to finish SPGs. This is result of me being too cocky with SPG firing position being too close to enemies, i wanted to drop shells on enemies near LZ, thinking that BTRs are not going to attack because of Command truck and UGVs parked at entrance.

 

5kthhlY.jpg

   Panthers are going to finish those snakes. 

 

0VKGDGQ.jpg

   At least we managed to shatter Novikov's attack. He is sharp, although SGB still lost 2 infantry squads, KV-20 artillery battery and 1 SPAAG/transports platoon for 1 our SPG team. 

 

AnWQPhx.jpg

   Tanks are shielding troops that are hacking Foxtrot server hub, while our own armor is concentrating at entrance in order to be prepared for next move by SGB commander.

 

   Outside of walls:

Spoiler

DzfJwVw.jpg

   Now i'm going to counter-attack Arkadiy's forces. Best kind of defence.

 

JSoFXKc.jpg

   -1 tank, but Cheetahs are under fire and we need to get out. Also, SPG reinforcements and Kommandos to help us with Russian soldiers.

 

wxTYyuV.jpg

   Russian army troops are all over Bravo point, better to avoid it.

 

xBKZl3T.jpg

   Kamovs are trying to counter my attempt to pressure SGB troops outside of military base walls, Badgers should drive them out. Missile barrage managed to take out 1 vic, sadly.

 

jVnb8QJ.jpg

   Cheetahs halped to push Kamovs away, but looks like Arkadiy is moving his troops to counter attack us.

 

FI4VMT9.jpg

   2 AFV units and infantry squad are assaulting our troops, 1 Panther tank is lost. Fighting is sarting to heat up. EMP used to give a few moments for Panthers to change position.

 

uQR4EXf.jpg

 

E90WyLn.jpg

   SPG's shells are reaching their target.

 

mbduydx.jpg

   Cheetahs jumped on heavily damaged vics and finished them with HOT missile barrage.

 

KFLoKyc.jpg

   BTRs are out of action, tanks and SPGs managed to damage infantry and tanks before they managed to recover.

 

p44TSyP.jpg

   Infantry squad is broken, just tanks left. EMP strike was a good move.

 

6gw8faS.jpg

   We managed to jump on Novikov's troops in a good moment, before he managed to concentrate them and properly launch his own armored push.

 

   Air full of metal:

Spoiler

yfqpT0P.jpg

   Looks like SGB commander changed tactics - now he tries to stop Kommandos from advancing to Sierra with raid by 2 gunships teams.

 

z3gchD2.jpg

   Cheetahs targeted damaged Kamovs, while jets were tasked with gun run on second team.

 

ql2kFoz.jpg

   2nd team is now under fire of 2 units, they are as good as dead.

 

zNh5cqc.jpg

   Raiding group is out of action.

 

daLO96M.jpg

   Cheetahs scouting targets for artillery, they should not stay without work for too long, it will be a waste of their firepower.

 

fKyo1hy.jpg

   Tanks are going to clear Bravo point, so if needed we can use airspace above it and ground around it for troops movement. Slowly chipping away SGB presence on this battlefield before this fight will get to Defcon phase.

 

MCjBGfd.jpg

   SPGs finished Novikov's engineers, tanks are working on Russian army troops at B point.

 

YID2iMI.jpg

   Bravo is no longer crawling with Recon teams and waves of Russian Army conscripts. Another group of Kamovs arrived to Delta position. 

 

ULnUnwi.jpg

   And they are trying to do something about Kommandos at Sierra as well. Called EMP on them.

 

Sr8gjEt.jpg

   Those things still managed to launch their missiles before being EMPed.

 

w5pjqbU.jpg

   Kamovs went away, near Zulu. Badgers are driving to intercept those choppers. Meanwhile Grenadiers are taking Yankee position. 

 

VV18JpK.jpg

   Opportunity for a microwave attack!

 

pkiIlZ5.jpg

   Kamovs are running away, this tactic of Arkadiy is also failed.

 

   Melting asphalt:

   Heh, probably should have waited for a moment...

 

OlULM9R.jpg

   Now i'm going full attack in order to beat some units before getting back to base and defend our EW dominance. EMP is called on those Ogres so we can defeat them.

 

8tP5uY5.jpg

   Novikov also reinforced Delta with Recon team. I nearly re-established my forces, we need a bit more time before everything is ready to retreat, back under walls protection.

 

KMNlhxc.jpg

 

ZEJBNv5.jpg

   T-100s are defeated and looks like Novikov is bringing his own reinforcements. Panthers lost one more tank from T-100s fire.

 

HIgPOHp.jpg

   Badgers are still vigilant...

 

AG3QxhY.jpg   ... and vengeful.

 

gK45EAc.jpg

   Kommandos were positioned in trees just outside of walls near Alpha uplink, so we can have eyes on SGB landing area and see what Arkadiy is bringing to a fight.

 

BWojyiF.jpg

   Trying to find an angle on those Shpetsnaz soldiers.

 

w8VI5WY.jpg

   Arkadiy had attack on Alpha in his plans, and i placed scouts just in his way, heh.

   Badgers are moving to support Kommandos, SPGs already opened fire.

   Our soldiers need to move away to avoid casualties.

 

itFys7W.jpg

   Artillery helped to press those Shpetsnaz operatives away, Kommandos are ok.

 

0LOcWvB.jpg

   Airstrike finished them. Let's try to keep ths momentum to shield troops near Alpha and Grenadier squad that is capturing Foxtrot.

 

XHOYYSs.jpg

   A lot of infantry is rushing towards Alpha point while a platoon of heavy armor is mobing on our left flank. Novikov tries to orginize counter assault and take uplinks ASAP.

 

PYxFP6s.jpg

   Tanks are moving towards entrance to Alpha, so we can hold Shpetsnaz human waves away from uplinks.

   After SGB didn't managed to take Maxwell airforces base, they retreated, giving us region from which Shpetsnaz started their operation. Now they are coming back, they want this place back and we are in their way.

 

Spoiler

dd4cV5y.jpg

   This is going to be a bit strange battle. We need to take over 50% of uplinks, and there are only 4 of them, 2 near each landing zone. This mean that battle can easily gone into race until we will run out of reserve units. Also, our good old opponent - Savilov, is back.

 

X5xDkvh.jpg

   Usual deployment. 

 

X6onUJ6.jpg

 

3yBgrJ5.jpg

   Map shows that each pair of uplinks is located inside of walled off compounds. Central area is going to be hot place, if i will not push troops there, Savilov will have a choice of 2-3 entrances to flank my troops near uplinks.

   Things are heating up:

   And here are those KV-20 assholes. Cheetahs are going to attack them in attempt to force to reposition and give some time for AFV to move away.

 

NuRAfis.jpg

   Damn, Savilov put a lot of firepower here, Recon team and uplinks guard squad. Zhukovs are well defended from air threats.

 

3fDZeft.jpg

   1 gunship is down, CV is still under fire as Zhukovs didn't even flinch.

   We are retreating, as all troops are in range of KV-20 SPGs. Cheetahs are flying out of battlefield, they lost 2 gunships.

   Savilov is pressuring me out, engineers now popped out to fire at retreating Panthers.

   2 units are pushing us with Zhukovs repositioning to provide support for futher advances of SGB troops. Tanks are also retreating, they lost 2 machines, although managed to defeat engineers.

   Transports arrived, they are covering infantry squad that is rushing towards house. We need to push as hard as we can, our troops are being under danger of total defeat - infantry can deal with Badgers, while SPGs can finish tanks.

   Tanks are out of action by SPGs, CV is rushing forward, firing laser at infantry that managed to get out of BTRs before we finished them. Airstrike is called on SPGs.

   Engineers defeated our APCs. We have only few units left - Grenadiers, CV and freshly deployed SPGs.

   Badgers and SPGs are attacking Russian army Recon team, we need to secure this place for our own SPGs.

   Done. Kamovs are moving towards us, Badgers need to push forward and not allow it to see where my SPGs are.

 

BrWVKf0.jpg

   Kamovs dropped their missile strike at Badger, taking out 1 vic. They are still pushing forward, doing recon in the same time.

   Running away didn't helped, but Badgers found limit of their push. Delta is crawling with Russian army personal, APCs need to get out of their LOS. Looks like we manage to wear down Savilov troops during our fight on parking lots and during CV retreat.

 

   Payback:

Spoiler

   Now it is time for us to push. Fyodor use some of his resources on Recon teams, so he probably have less troops than we.

   We managed to secure Maxwell base from direct assault operations, but SGB is not over with their plans to take it. Now Shpetsnaz is launching a raid on Maxwell AirForces base in order to disable it and deprive airsupport for neareast regions under our control. We were tasked with defending critical buildings and structures of Maxwell base to break SGB plans and keep it operational.

KMHLqAo.jpg

   Map shows location of targeted buildings. Foxtrot is way out of main base body, it is a flight control tower near runway. I will leave it as it is, too far from our LZ and path to it is convoluted (nearest exit from compound to F is barricaded and i don't want to open it for enemies to use it to flank us). All this mean that Lima and Zulu are not likely to be hit by AFVs, as only 2 entrances are open for AFVs - Near Delta and 2nd one is not far from Whiskey. All troops will be concentrated nearby, will aim on entrance near Delta, as it is closest to SGB LZ. Our enemy is Kurochnik, he is rather aggressive and prefer to use gunships as CAS for assault groups.

 

Spoiler

Idd8W47.jpg

   We can deploy 2 units during begining of operation, while raiding troops can utilize a lot more from start. This mean we need to concetrate on activating uplinks and bringing reinforcements and avoid battle in early phase of this raid.

 

PvxKy83.jpg

   Grenadiers will go for Sierra first, with APCs moved to blocking positions against possible Kamov gunships rush.

 

7j8S3YK.jpg

   Kurochnik can try to assault us early on, so i need to keep troops futher away from his units and leave Foxtrot as a distraction.

 

J2inaMR.jpg

 

lz5E5N6.jpg

   Alexander already deployed at least 3-4 units - choppers, Ogres MBTs, Cockroach BTRs (their radars are visible on the right) and probably 1 or more infantry squads. All AFVs are moving towards Foxtrot flight control tower.

 

0t1G4Kx.jpg

   Grenadiers are activating Sierra hub.

 

   Raiding each other:

Spoiler

sX33oC3.jpg

   Seeing how all AFVs went for Foxtrot i decided to smash Kamovs and take out Kurochnik's CAS. This should give us easier time with main assault on military base. Badgers were hit by missile salvo, but all vics survived.

 

UBPrpcp.jpg

   Running away? No units are visible nearby, except infantry squad on Bravo that is hacking it. Badgers have some time to finish Kamovs before this transport helicopter will drop it's cargo.

 

KonaJp3.jpg

 

8aqrLIw.jpg

   Now Badgers need to get fuck out - team of Shpetsnaz soldiers is fast roping out of Locust and Tarantula delivered BTRs on top of that.

 

8fZG8IE.jpg

   BTRs managed to destroy 1 APC with missiles, Shpetsnaz operatives are trying to chase our 8x8 tin cans.

 

82aYp8T.jpg

   Now Badgers are under fire from engineers on Bravo. BTRs blocked a road to rest of SGB troops, we have only 1 way to get out and not get into crossfire from both infantry units.

 

AjlFIJX.jpg

   2nd vic was blown up, but not a bad price for postponing Kurochnik's attack and defeating his gunships.

 

LR8WP6Q.jpg

   Badgers managed to break assault formation of Russians, BTRs started raid on main base, with minimal support. 2 Panther MBT platoons are going to chew them in seconds.

 

8ZhQfay.jpg

 

z4Tt0s4.jpg  

5ACFnJc.jpg

   In 17 seconds, to be precise.

 

3mrKjgZ.jpg

   T-100s are moving in, Kamovs are rushing forward to support them.

 

yIaEu5b.jpg

   Using a very short window of opportunity to fire our missiles and then get ot, as BTRs and SGB gunships are very close.

 

W8Mtf1f.jpg

   Now Cheetahs are going to try to lure Kamovs. Grenadiers are taking Alpha, it will be used as AA hardpoint where AFVs can find a cover from attack choppers if Badgers will be put out of action.

 

wo0a9yZ.jpg

   Hello! Do you have a few seconds to eat our AA missiles?

 

Aj7CCZn.jpg

   Kamovs lost 2 machine and now running away from battlefield, on the other hand we are becoming only stronger - 2nd team of Badgers is being delivered to insure that rest of forces will have mobile AA coverage if 1st team of Badger APCs will be destroyed. Meanwhile Alexander put into action all his units - BTRs dropped infantry squad and now this raiding group of Shpetsnaz troops is pushing forward.

 

Xvm1NA9.jpg

   Panthers repositioned to fire their special rounds in salvo. 3rd platon of Panthers is on the way to this battlefield. Bravo uplink upgrade was dropped few moments after it was started, so enemy can't use any type of support (including EMPs), thats why i can easily go with very AFV heavy troop composition and concetrate them so brazenly. Also, this mean Kurochnik used ALL hits troops to push forward.

 

m0iw5TU.jpg

 

V4J8XMh.jpg

   2 infantry squads and 2 AFVs platoons, plus damaged team of gunships, 5 units in total (and one that Badgers managed to fuck up in our counter-raid). It doesn't look like Alexander have other units on the ground, it is perfect moment to smash all SGB forces on this battlefield.

 

A65bqWd.jpg

   Panthers are focused on BTRs, destroying them will allow Cheetahs to work on T-100s.

 

5PTazyW.jpg

   Delta suffered serious damage, if it will be ruined, we will have only 1 target left before SGB will reach their objective. BTRs are out, Panthers now working on T-100s, using a moment that they are concentrated on building. Badgers managed to kick Kamovs away without getting destroyed.

 

mTXbX29.jpg

   A lot of Shpetsnaz soldiers are rushing forward, but as BTRs are out and Ogres being near defeat, they will be rather easy target to deal.

 

hQJ8PNh.jpg

   Heh, looks like Alexander brought 1 or 2 more infantry squads to this meatgrinder. Their marksmans managed to kill some of Grenadiers that were moved in cover behind tanks to provide AA covereage for them.

 

Vgh68ot.jpg

   Panthers are moving away from them to fire a barrage of HEs.

   3rd unit of MBTs joined this firefight. Those guys are in deepest pile of shit they ever faced.

   Done!

   Now we are going to fight for this mountain pass with SGB, to secure a path to Ft.Campbell.

 

Spoiler

Z3sL42i.jpg

   Familiar layout, known enemy. Advancing to central zone and fighting with SGB troops there will be my excellent deeply planned tactic.

 

WdOU7P3.jpg

   We can deploy 4 units in first wave, so SPGs are called to help to clear central zone from Russian human waves.

   First exchanges:

Spoiler

xyeo0Cy.jpg

   SPGs already working on Russian army forces.

 

NT5dOPL.jpg

   Savilov dropped Wolfes on Bravo, BTRs are moving to central zone.

 

Iahia4O.jpg

 

M6wuvda.jpg

   Another squad is finished.

 

nIYvhhT.jpg

   BTRs are moving somewhere else now.

 

ehdRs1Q.jpg

   Kamovs jumped into action. Cheetahs are going to deal with them.

 

WAeQZ4B.jpg

 

rlzi3qy.jpg

   Kamovs going back, they are not really commited to fight.

 

y96Akcx.jpg

   Zhukovs are deployingtheir cannons, now we need to work on them.

 

08I9svo.jpg

 

P501Kq7.jpg

   Now all Fyodor's troops are now visible for us. He is preparing attack on us with massive assault formation. I need to brake it, we will begin with artillery barrages, when they will be in range.

 

   Breaking assaulting force:

Spoiler

LuhVlkS.jpg

   BTRs are pushing from Northern part of Zulu plato, they are going to be hit first.

 

tcXP9kw.jpg

   

PiGU1qZ.jpg

   Savilov is attacking with all troops in a single line. Damn, we need to shatter this formation. SPGs are going to suppress BTRs and allow Cheetahs to engage tanks.

 

WxGYBN4.jpg

   T-100s are pushing, but Cheetahs managed to destroy one of their machines. Infantry squad is rushing towards Zulu, we need to deny Zulu point for Fyodor.

 

c8v9A3n.jpg

   Cheetahs almost done with tanks, forcing them to retreat, while our Panthers now have easier time to attack infantry unit next to Zulu.

 

AfWXt5R.jpg

   Now we are concentrated on infantry unit, we need to keep them away of Zulu.

 

8NOIA73.jpg

   Ogres are broken to pieces, now our own MBTs are pushing forward to destroy SPGs. Savilov went with 2 artillery teams this time, we need to shut those things down and quick.

 

frcUYja.jpg

   EMP called to disable this pile of AFVs.

 

i5ahpE5.jpg

   Now we are talking. Savilov brought Recon team on Bravo to defend it. By good target prioritisation we managed to push BTRs away, that allowed to use gunships against not fully-loaded Ogres, and this allowed to use Panthers against everything else. If Savilov had move BTRs during this attack and more tanks instead of infantry, he could conduct serious breakthrough.

 

L1kLHn0.jpg

   Badgers finished Kamovs, allowing Panthers to continue push.

 

FJAYQSN.jpg

   BTRs destroyed, Zhukovs now our target. EMP managed to held them in place for lond enough.

 

H0vA9C8.jpg

 

B39En68.jpg

   We managed to break this assault formations with minimal loses.

 

   Exploiting his weakness:

Spoiler

QudTbJA.jpg

   Now things are going to be smoother - we need to smack Shpetsnaz reinforcements and end this battle. Grenadiers will take Sierra, but will not capture Zulu to avoid WMD strike as long as we can.

 

1SeeeXH.jpg

   Fyodor still have 3 units on the ground - 2 infantry squads and this team of Kamovs. If i will be wise enough, Savilov will not manage to make  a come back.

 

nUjp0sE.jpg

   Tanks are firing a salvo of rounds against infantry.

 

riOQmdF.jpg

   And now they are retreating. Good, although a team of Shpetsnaz saboteurs managed to sneak into a village near my SPGs, those guys are my main problem now.

 

eyaxJu7.jpg

   Gunships are going to suppress enemies here, giving time for SPGs to engage them.

 

Dz1Druj.jpg

   Panthers lost 1 vic to missile barrage of SGB attack helicopters. But it doesn't really matter, i'm still on top of this.

 

fd8W0fx.jpg

   Wolfes are out of action, can concentrate on main frontline.

 

F3tRyYc.jpg

   Panthers finished Recon team of Russian Army, so there are no ground troops to obstruct our advance.

 

61Wc1w5.jpg

   Badgers chasing those helicopters to SGB LZ, rest of forces are moving behind them. This is going to be a LZ massacre.

 

iL2OF3s.jpg

 

CZJEOVw.jpg

   EMP to hold Kamovs in place, so Fyodor can't retreat them out of battlefield and get resources back that were spent to call them in.

 

Tk9suER.jpg

 

oL1Jpeb.jpg

   And tanks finished infantry squad. Looks like it is over.

   We continue our advance in USA against Russians. We are moving deeper into SGB territory and resistance to our incursion is increasing. Both sides of this mission will have full support of regular army and Air forces.

 

Spoiler

06AS2n9.jpg

   Our old enemy Novikov is leading Shpetsnaz troops into battle against Enforcer corps forces. We need to take 4 uplinks to gain EW dominance and if we will hold it for 5 minutes we will win or we can destroy enemy troops instead. I'm going with usual first wave deployment, but Novikov is adaptable leader, so rest of troops will be brought according to situation.

 

DDdCwSN.jpg

   As usual i will try to tie enemies in big fist fight near Sierra, to avoid situation when  Arkadiy's troops will be running and driving on my both flanks in numbers, trying to bully forces that i will be forced to spread out.

 

wNo5Guf.jpg

 

CRhQCZM.jpg

 

   First clashes:

Spoiler

OyVs1li.jpg

   Badgers arrived to central zone and started to clear it before meeting our opponents.

 

QbFpluA.jpg

   SPGs are also helping to do it faster, so we gain space to move around without being shot from 7 different directions.

 

icgF1Kh.jpg

   Now Badgers are using moment to pressure SGB helicopters away from Sierra.

 

j5lZVQM.jpg

   Cheetahs are using clear skies near Sierra to futher clean future battlespace.

 

HbUmj7E.jpg

 

vuBGOZ0.jpg

   Done!

 

Dy2P7Gq.jpg

   During clearing this area, Novikov's KV-20s were spotted. He wanted to destroy European Army infantry, but he probably didn't expected my aggressive actions.

 

aUQcXjO.jpg

   We can use this moment to futher improve our chances!

 

RsrQb5N.jpg

   Badgers are shielding Cheetahs gunship from Shpetsnaz copters.

 

N0uM8mi.jpg

 

qYahnen.jpg

   Badgers are done with Kamovs.

 

JqqHhUQ.jpg

   And our attack choppers accomplished their objective.

 

Kaz0ha5.jpg

   Main forces are arriving. This was rather successfull early thrust, 2 units are down, including artillery. 

 

   Meat Grinder is on!

Spoiler

6QBSQ6L.jpg

   Right flank base entrance vomited BTRs at us, they are rushing towards Foxtrot uplink. My own infantry will not get into good firing position to stop them, we need to counter this aggressive move with something else.

 

fBVv4Kc.jpg

   For example - with MRLS strike.

 

zmD9Q2A.jpg

 

41PVss8.jpg

   Second one.

 

TcJHKhZ.jpg

   Kamovs are jumping in but they got too close to Badgers. Microwave weapon is now used against Kamovs gunships to destroy them faster.

 

Jc2I9hn.jpg

   Cheetahs added their missiles to this attack, Kamovs already managed to damage one of SPGs.

 

B5zWiDA.jpg

   BTRs changed their mind and now are pushing right to central zone, in attempt to chase our helicopters.

 

Pe6Ln4G.jpg

   Command truck and APCs are dealing with heavily damaged Cockroach SPAAGs, with Marksmans support.

 

tGTrwHW.jpg

   Done. Panthers are moving to Sierra point to support main troops, while Grenadiers are approaching Zulu point, they are used to take this point as they can deploy UGVs to defend them and Zulu/Delta flank is futher away from troops near Sierra than Foxtrot so Grenadiers have less support from them.

 

pW7KPuW.jpg

   Second platoon of BTRs attack us from left side. 

 

HBokPeP.jpg

   Now BTRs are firing at our APCs, Cheetahs can't get into action and Panthers are still too far to engage them. APCs need to move away.

 

Z4AeN9P.jpg

   BTRs changed their mind - they are targeting SPGs. I didn't moved them to use their firepower output to maximum, but now they need to get out.

 

2jWadRF.jpg

   Badgers are trying to shield SPGs from BTR's autocannons.

 

MAssgBQ.jpg

   APCs dropped infantry unit, while Marksmans lost 1 SPG from BTR's autocannons.

 

KkaZNio.jpg

   Cheetahs tried to take some of firepower output of BTRs, Novikov used this moment to use EMP on us. Gunships are not disabled and can't move away from fire in time.

 

Hzma0uN.jpg

   Badgers are trying to destroy BTRs, but those transports are too armored to finish them quickly.

 

Yrtpw9M.jpg

   Cheetahs lost 2 machines during EMP strike.

 

ZXsSb1m.jpg

   And now they are out of action.

 

1egUO0s.jpg

   We managed to defeat BTRs, but Novikov used this time to pull more AFV unit here.

 

fMIGniH.jpg

   Arkadiy moved T-100s, infantry and BTRs to conduct assault on my troops near Sierra.

 

   Meat Grinder is on full power!

Spoiler

fxfVb4y.jpg

   Tanks are engaging our APCs with CV trying to protect them from BTRs. Our defences are on the edge.

 

1OLbH8W.jpg

   Badgers lost 2 vics, but Panthers are now here.

 

sUpUhpd.jpg

   APCs are destroyed by Ogres, i'm pushing Command truck to attack T-100s in close range, with sword if needed.

 

EGgDAOe.jpg

   New gunships are now in range to fire at Ogres. THose tanks also managed to put SPGs out of action as well.

 

x3mzxEH.jpg

 

cRDR4jc.jpg

   Second BTR formation was destroyed by our own MBTs.

 

Co95dCd.jpg

 

gwwQPpK.jpg

   Kommandos are at Foxtrot, they catched Shpetsnaz operatives that tried to move to Foxtrot uplink. Now snipers are firing at them.

 

MadTQTP.jpg

   Now they are in range of assault rifles fire.

 

HdWRHl3.jpg

   Novikov now tries to keep pressure on us by seonding Recon teams. Panthers have enough firepower to finish those.

 

G3JGzx4.jpg

   

zGoIXOv.jpg

   Team of Shpetsnaz soldiers, that tried to attack Foxtrot backed off to civilian houses, trying to find another way into uplink. Cheetahs and artillery will deal with them now.

 

c02iiVo.jpg

   MRLS strike in progress. Shpetsnaz snipers managed to kill several Kommandos, we must smash them faster and thats why MRLS attack was used.

 

ZETcQUA.jpg

   Infantry is done, now Arkadiy is trying to recon areas near Sierra to see where to attack.

 

GYzjD4x.jpg

   Missile barrage damaged tanks. He will probably drop a WMD on us, thats why i'm trying to move units closer to gunships.

 

zxlvBx5.jpg

   Fuck, didn't worked so well. Asshole took out 5 units with single shot....

 

JJaGKsB.jpg

   Our WMD strike against arriving reinforcements. Not sure how many were took out.

 

   This shit is still on full throttle!

Spoiler

aEPFj0k.jpg

   SGB after our WMD strike started to bring their main reinforcements. This team of engineers us rushing towards Sierra, that is largerly undefended. My own reinforcements are still near landing area. Grenadiers captured Delta and my plan is to deprive Novikov from resources, as in direct fight our capabilities are not very different. Kommandos will get to Alpha and grab it from Shpetsnaz troops.

 

EyLMeHX.jpg

   Snipers are working on Russian conscripts that were defending military base exit near Alpha position.

 

fE1KQyI.jpg

   Badgers are first to arive to Sierra ad they already working on Kamovs nearby. One of our helicopter teams is retreating out of battlefield after suffering loses. At this point i manage to recover from WMD strike, but i have only 5 units in reserve and most of troops on the ground are not experienced.

 

3wy0XbP.jpg

   Now tanks should have easier time fighting here.

 

tIepA1E.jpg

   2nd team of APCs arrived and we found a squad of Shpetsnaz soldiers and BTR unit that probably dropped them at some distance before entering area near Sierra.

 

sxnGg77.jpg

   Tanks will deal with that uplink capturing formation of Novikov troops. He thought that Sierra was clear as Kamovs saw nothing, other than my APCs.

 

dRSRBtj.jpg

   Artillery shells starting to drop on infantry in attempt to deny S to Arkadiy. His troops are very close to taking it.

 

BIJL9a7.jpg

   But SPGs put them down. Now time for BTRs.

 

OXIfPSc.jpg

 

R8SKHI0.jpg

   Damn, Cheetahs went too close to engineers during their scouting move. Those god damn AA flamethrowers! Arkadiy assembled another assault group to attack us near SIerra. My Kommandos cleared entrance from Russian army soldiers and waited until i will see what SGB is planning to do, now they are going straight to Alpha in attempt to distract some of Russian troops.

 

MfAEzHR.jpg

   Kamovs are using a moment to finish off my gunships.

 

rH3EFD6.jpg

   Central area is heating up, again.

 

Zmtm73B.jpg

   Badgers are driving through piles of destroyed AFVs in roder to get to Kamovs, heh. 

 

kAzCXQz.jpg

   I moved Grenadiers in this warehouse to put some pressure on enemy forces moving to Delta or Zulu uplinks and somebody managed to get caught.

 

tSynHmw.jpg

   Badgers massive missile attack paid off, Panthers and SPGs can now work on T-100s. EMP is called in, as those things are going to easily stomp on unexperienced platoons of tanks and APCs.

 

njANPHo.jpg

 

htKKo4E.jpg

   Badgers are out of LOS of tanks, while rest of troops are now actively destroying disabled heavily armored warmachines.

 

spfwTPW.jpg

   Grenadiers continue to hold their position, enemy engineers can't find a good angle on them, it appears.

 

lkqB9B4.jpg

   2nd platoon of tanks is moving in, with all sorts of support. 

 

Rqw1vDU.jpg

   Gunships, BTRs, tanks - only AFVs are now in action against my troops at Sierra. This is going to be a bloody battle.

 

   Promoted to Slaughter ground:

Spoiler

Ay0xggI.jpg

   Alpha is in our hands and now enemies have 5 minutes to do something. Battle for Sierra hub begins, and i called EMP to at least hold BTRs and Ogres for a moment.

 

AbI3JGe.jpg

   First platoon of oGres is out of action, but 3rd one is entering this parking lot. Tanks are engaging BTRs to clear skies for gunships, and becuase Panthers can delete those vics from battlefield much faster than Ogres.

 

DJhmrJR.jpg

   This is critical mass of troops Novikov pushed here, he fucking understands what is going on. Now 2 units of MBTs, 1 group of APC/SPAAGs and infantry team are fighting against our forces here, with Kamovs flying in to support them. Even small error can turn results of this fight in SGB favor. T-100s firing their flamethrowers against my CV on right flank of this parking lot, it is acting as distraction for Ogres.

 

u1aKfDZ.jpg

   SPGs shells started to connect with enemies.

 

hspwQEd.jpg

   Another EMP strike called to help us.

 

EtMId2v.jpg

   BTRs are finished, Panthers now need to move away and leave Ogres to artillery.

 

CkqeJiS.jpg

   Kamovs dropped their missile barrage, taking out 2 tanks (1 in each platoon).

 

3A0Qqp5.jpg

   Infantry jumped into neareast building, our armor need to get away from them as well.

 

U7g5Fqm.jpg

   One platoon of MBTs is out of this fight. Kamovs are trying to get 2nd destroyed as well, we need to push Badgers somewhere to push SGB air support away, which means pushing into areas in LOS of T-100s.

 

xEGOdtz.jpg

   Kamovs are retreating, time to move out tin cans back into cover.

 

hxJc3kT.jpg

   2nd group of Russian armored mosnters is destroyed, but 3rd one is still active.

 

PSze60s.jpg

   SPGs now are throwing HE rounds at infantry right in the moment when they exited structure to change pos.

 

Az9srLj.jpg

   Now Cheetahs have free ticket to fuck up Ogres. Grenadiers near Delta are holding their ground against Kamovs gunships.

 

mHQ9O5c.jpg

   Run, baby, run!

 

EbuuDZW.jpg

 

CneareT.jpg

   4th (!) tank unit that Novikov tried to move to attack us. Too late, we broke a spine of the main assault group!

 

W52qGca.jpg

btDia52.jpg

 

YgNu641.jpg

   At this point Arkadiy is saving his troops. This is a victory.

   At this point my heart was going crazy.

 

   Results of this well planned "operation":

   "C"?! Never had a C for a victory, let's check details

   Fuck, this was close battle. Novikov's battalion was very hard to crack. This is bad development, this should be taken into account during next missions against Arkadiy Novikov.

   After our previous.. ummm.. kind of victory European Federation troops advanced to Grissom AB North of Ft. Cambell. SGB managed to put a heavy fight before this mission, we can count on another serious combat, now in Grissom Airforces base.

 

ILL1BPP.jpg

   Kurochnik is back as acting as my opponent. His aggressvines coupled with worse terrain on out part of this base will be rather bad combination. My plan is to go for more infantry and AA heavy loadout, as big number of buildings inside of base suggest possible higher number of hostile foot soldiers. Convoluted terrain to move around inside of base (because of barricades) dictates use of artillery and gunships to deliver firepower in timely manner.

 

Spoiler

zIl619D.jpg

   Nearly usual deployment, with Kommandos for anti-infantry and limited AA role.

 

YtgQehY.jpg

 

HgJUueo.jpg

   tactical map shows difference in terrain between main body of base and runway area. Inisde of base number of roads are blocked and in order to move around vehicles will need to go around big square-shaped compounds, which may expose them for gunship harassment. SGB have a lot of space to move around, especially on our right flank. We will go from D to A and F, then take other uplinks after shattering main SGB troops.

 

uLEB2QJ.jpg

   Kamovs and Russian army personal, as usual, are first to be located.

 

   Battle begins:

Spoiler

89xaUqR.jpg

   And we begin with missile barrage.

 

jTM3Ghc.jpg

   Ogres are on the ground already.

 

9AIKS7u.jpg

   Gunships continue to shooter at each other.

 

Pkr3Tpn.jpg

   Now we are busy with infantry units.

 

TtDNRFW.jpg

   One of entrances to this base.

 

onSQMFm.jpg

   Airstrike on T-100s, just to remind them about us.

 

Z7VUQN7.jpg

   Badgers are working as shielding for troops that are moving to Alpha to grab it and deploy UGVs to defend it, turnng it into hardened position. 

 

0yldgtW.jpg

   Cheetahs are chasing Kamovs away, spotted infantry moving from Zulu to Lima (probably).

 

IEaH1sF.jpg

   T-100s are pushing to nearby gated entry. Kurochnik started his assault.

 

5cf2H1x.jpg

   Alexander used EMP to disable 3 units in one hit to support his assault. I'm not very worried as SGB troops need to get through a labyrinth.

 

GZO5LBV.jpg

   Badgers are running around to scare away Kamovs.

 

LV4flGE.jpg

   Cheetahs recovered from EMP, now missile strike is dropped on Ogres to push them away from base entrance.

 

wHnNWBB.jpg

   APCs continue to hunt for gunships. Alexander went with flanking move, i need to adjust tactics and pressure flanking troops of opposing Shpetsnaz battalion.

 

ew4U1Ew.jpg

   Kamovs are finally out of battle. Cheetahs are going for Ogres, while Badgers are harassing infantry unit near Lima.

 

m10JYif.jpg

 

7YFg9oJ.jpg

   First exchanges are over, Russians now are advancing to Lima and fighting is going to become more serious.

 

   F;anking is fun!

Spoiler

PV1SWsW.jpg

   Shpetnaz troops are taking Foxtrot, we need to push and dislodge them from F uplink. SPG was deployed to support us in defensive fight that i'm trying to conduct (to use terrain better).

 

4mLIZhk.jpg

 

rFMH528.jpg

   Another EMP used, but main troops that are assaulting Foxtrot are infantry.

 

qBgTGiB.jpg

   Kommandos are picking engineers near Foxtrot. Taking F should allow us to secure one of entrances to Grissom base.

 

Xas24an.jpg

   

mNIMMpJ.jpg

   Badgers continue to keep eyes on entrance to base.

 

7Cz0yV2.jpg

   Cheetahs are now trying to pressure troops that are flanking us. Feels like Kurochnnik is outmaneuvering me.

 

wg9YsZ0.jpg

   Another T-100 platoon is approaching, Alexander probably will assemble an assault formation. 2nd SPG is coming to hit troops that are going to flank on us.

 

rjGjwf6.jpg

   Kommandos are now taking Foxtrot, Grenadiers will secure entrance near Foxtrot. 

 

sMJ8sEc.jpg

   SGB engineers near Lima are defeated, but 2 more units are pushing on our flanks.

 

bL35DAl.jpg

   Tanks are pushing Foxtrot now, SPGs and Cheetahs will try to defeat them. But those Ogres are now fully-loaded, they have AA HMG.

 

7eoLWCQ.jpg

   SGB took Sierra and now enemies have EW dominance. Wll crash one of his uplink to establish EW balance.

 

AlIjlry.jpg

   Cheetahs are atacking Ogres to force them away from Foxtrot.

 

lwAx6N5.jpg

   A lot of troops being deployed now. Big ass assault is coming.  

 

   On the edge of defeat:

Spoiler

Kcu6YLG.jpg

   Cheetahs are running away from this huge ass pile of SGB troops, leaving shot down machines behind them.

 

MncIZWy.jpg

   Badgers also lost a vic from RPGs of Shpetsnaz soldiers.

 

iyYXDXn.jpg

   And 2nd APC is lost... We will be pressured from 2 fronts, i expect. Panthers are called in to support us in this fight.

 

H8X9Lcf.jpg

   Shpetsnaz operatives managed to knock out Badger, assholes.

 

hMe2BzL.jpg

   Kommandos were moved to deal with those assholes. CV is working as a distraction and roadblock. Cheetahs were tasked to get out of this fght, they are on edge of being destroyed as their parts are holding on adhesive tape.

 

uQQBV3u.jpg

   Another airstrike on tanks, to keep them away as long as we can. Kurochnik's infantry advanced to Bravo and nearly captured it.

 

InYBZQD.jpg

   Now we are in trouble - we need to take at least 1 uplink to establish balance and 1 more to start victory countdown.

 

uxsxsvC.jpg

   EMP was used by Alexander against Badgers to give time to Kamovs to move away. Kommandos are covering movement of Grenadiers towards Lima uplink.

 

nvIxvOi.jpg

   Kommandos will try to take Lima so partially cut Bravo from possible reinforcements when i will try to take it.

 

CtvYJPi.jpg

   In the same time Grenadiers are moving to nearby buildings to work as AA cover. Looks like Kurochnik brought SPGs as well. Situation is not good, but at least Kurochnik still isn't pushing us with full power of his troops.

 

NaVAnOQ.jpg

   Kommandos are walkings through defeated engineers and now deal with guards of Lima server hub.

 

XlpifH9.jpg

   Damn, Kommandos are caught by BTRs.

 

nswAiuU.jpg

   NOW SGB onslaught started. 2 AFV units breached Foxtrot, 2 Kamovs team are moving to central zone and now Kommandos are going killed by BTR autocannons. Now we have serious problems.

 

8rsBbYZ.jpg

   Kommandos didn't managed to get out in time, they are defeated. We are entering this phase of mission low on anti-infantry and AA troops.

 

Uu0oHyM.jpg

   We are bing pressured from 4 directions - Foxtrot, area between F and L, Lima entrance and B-D entrance. Because Grenadiers were busy with combat, we didn't managed to put mines around.

 

   ... no longer on the edge.

Spoiler

QyYBP09.jpg

   CV is trying to keep attackers at distance, but it is pushed by 2 units.

 

KWcgh8R.jpg

   BTRs with support of infantry and SPGs managed to fuck up CV. Our defence is crumbling.

 

qPo7l3E.jpg

   Zhukov SPGs now joined this attack, this is terrible.

 

s6Z0TQ2.jpg

   BTRs breaching through Lima entrance to our base, with Badgers being under artillery strikes. Grenadiers are trashing BTRs, at least.

 

Qw6X7CH.jpg

   BTRs are destroyed, but infantry managed to get out.

 

TcFsUjU.jpg

   2nd platoon of Panthers is way to far from battlefield, at this point we have 3 minutes and no infantry on the ground. Even if we will manage to bring infantry, they will not have APC to haul them to neareast uplink, as Badgers are now overrun. Alexander and I decided to use WMDs, this fight looks like is lost for us.

 

XNqj61P.jpg

 

kNPziFp.jpg

   Heh, just 1 unit left on the ground...

 

bdao7yG.jpg

   Things are rather obvious now as 2 teams of vultures arrived to juice ground vics...

   After my defeat at Grissom AB, Shpetsnaz managed to drive us back to Ft Cambell. I'm very angry about that, i want a rematch!

   Familiar place, but different opponent - Georgiy Sokolov. Didn't saw him for some time. Previous operation in this military base shown that we should try to destroy enemies before entering Defcon phase in order to get out of this fight with minimal loses. My plan is in general similar as before - getting to Sierra and starting big ass slap fight in central area of this map, but this time i will be way more aggressive in early phase so enemies will not have much resources to bring reinforcements.

 

Spoiler

BTgEoX9.jpg

   This time CV was changed for Panther MBTs, because we are going early aggressive push. Unexperienced team of Grenadiers was called specifically to get some trigger time and be better prepared for 2nd battle for Grissom AB. 

 

YTGRLZh.jpg

   2 groups of artillery guns also should provide us with significant firepower. Although this mean we will be slow to capture territory, as only infantry can capture uplinks, and all this mean that Sokolov can get ahead of us if he survive our early onslaught.

 

QFvMPkS.jpg

   We begin to execute my rather risky plan.

 

   Assault, part 1:

Spoiler

KHjQU5B.jpg

   Badgers caught Kamovs on our way in. Panthers are working on Russian army infantry near Sierra.

 

PPyL86i.jpg

   Georgiy's infantry is rushing to Sierra, we need to destroy them as well. Lima is in our hands, more troops are called in to reinforce us.

 

o8qwuOO.jpg

   Get fucked!

 

QFK4GyG.jpg

   2nd team of SGB gunships is flying towards assault troops.

 

Cu06fwF.jpg

   Panthers were hit with missile barrage and same missiles killed remains of Russian army infantry unit that Panthers were going through. This is rather desperate action, especially seeing how Kamovs ignored our APCs and went straight for MBTs. Georgiy understood what i'm trying to do, this attack is going to be way harder to execute than expected.

 

l7V9YII.jpg

   APCs are trying to shot down Kamovs, our own gunships are coming to help here.

 

Lzaebz2.jpg

   EMP disabled tanks and APCs, so Kamovs crushed our tanks, but they are now target for our Cheetahs. Sokolov brought Zhukovs here as well, but 3rd team of attack choppers is protecting them.

 

fI9ZCuI.jpg

   Badgers are under fire, i'm going to push forward with them, we need to be aggressive.

 

qNbelxw.jpg

   APCs now pushing Shpetsnaz birds away, our own SPGs are in range to drop their shells on KV-20s.

 

FqJKJw2.jpg

   Very close range MRLS support, hehe. We need to keep this pressure on!

 

9udYCMV.jpg

 

EsmhqmD.jpg

   Another EMP strike, now against my artillery support. Sokolov is desperate - he uses a lot of his resources to stop our attack.

 

w3pHMnM.jpg

   Engineers from Bravo were pushed forward to counter-attack us.

 

8DyS53V.jpg

   We managed to move away a bit, but another EMP disabled ALL our vehicles. I bet Georgiy now have second to none CPs to call additional troops or use another special attack.

 

9eqrwZU.jpg

   That is very desperate action - heavily damaged tean that lost 2 machines is pressed to attack our SHORAD vics. They are are as good as dead.

 

oqjobpT.jpg

   Kamovs are finished, engineers are trying to push forward and looks like hostile AFV unit is moving in as well.

 

V1qlUdH.jpg

   Focusing all our firepower on those guys to destroy them fast.

 

wMfqo5p.jpg

   Done. Second team of AFVs is lurking near Foxtrot/Alpha uplinks, but during operation i didn't saw them, was concentrated here.

 

   Assault, part 2:

Spoiler

ZJaUApY.jpg

   BTRs are attacking our own APCs, they started their push with AA missile spam on our gunships, thats why 1 chopper was shot down. SPGs are located right behind Badgers, so not much place to retreat.

 

T9ZXXU8.jpg

   Cheetahs are trying to distract BTRs at least for a moment, to give SPGs and Badgers more time to engage Cockroaches and force them to go back.

 

3SD8TGo.jpg

   We managed to force them out of this parking lot.

 

wd7u7eX.jpg

   Cheetahs are keeping eyes on BTRs so SPG can engae them as long as we can, but yet another group of helicopters is incoming.

 

BuodLJt.jpg    Badgers are engaging Kamovs, to force them away from our SPGs. 

 

QnhPLLA.jpg

   Grenadiers were caught in the open by BTRs that earlier driven near Foxtrot to scout sitaution around it and went back to area near Alpha. They saw my grou of infantry moving to Alpha and decided to burst out of military base entrance and engage them.

 

CwEyFn8.jpg

   Grenadiers didn't managed to get away, at least artillery now is working on them with Cheetahs support.

 

39R5VJk.jpg

 

SdWEURM.jpg

   Flanking attack was defeated, although we no longer have anybody on our right flank. My plan is holding on a thin premises, heh.

 

4J9hRTB.jpg

   Badgers continue to bit shit out of Kamovs every time they are trying to sneak to other units near Sierra.

 

3tpy0mQ.jpg

   2nd team of Panthers arrived, and just in time - BTRs are here, again.

 

vSijYcE.jpg

   Sokolov's choppers are still trying to find a way in, but Badgers are chasing them.

 

WwjIdrp.jpg

   Close range salvo finished BTR-112s. Not much else is visible on the ground so far.

 

Nubgz5m.jpg

   Cheetahs are trying to chase Kamovs, we are trying to deny Georgiy a resources that he will get back if those helicopters will retreat and get out of battlefield. 

 

x2JTJIz.jpg

   Cheetahs are under fire and Kamovs also dicided to fight back. Somebody else is near, and seeing no AFVs means that this is infantry that fire at us and support their gunships.

 

ghuXfc7.jpg

   Cheetahs were shot down and now Kamovs are firing missile at Panthers, with infantry near us trying to close in. We can deal with them, SPGs and APCs should be enough

 

iaRwAWn.jpg

   Badgers are trying to cover Panthers, as they lost 1 vic from determined leftovers of gunship squad.

 

04lL6ee.jpg

   Airstrike is called on those choppers to destroy them ASAP.

 

CNU6DpR.jpg

   Rahter accurate MRLS strike.

 

jliNiT8.jpg

 

l5PGObp.jpg

   Done!

 

NJml5pl.jpg

   Ops, SPGs killed defeated infantry squad leftovers.

   Results:

   And we are back to Grissom AB.

pMCtulX.jpg

   We have air and Army support in this mission.

 

Spoiler

iNiZmMx.jpg

   Kurochnik, again. After he trashed me in previous attempt to secure Grissom base i decided to change tactics. First time SGB managed to take more uplinks and faster than we, plus one of captured points later was used as staging area for a flanking attack - position Bravo. My plan is still revolves around using build up area of military base as a stronghold against Shpetsnaz assault.

 

knoEvwd.jpg

   Kommandos are better at capturing uplinks, while Grenadiers can upgrade them faster. I'm planing to use them in tandem - Kommandos will get to server building first, clear area around and capture it, then they will move for the next one while Grenadiers will upgrade and drop UGV on already taken uplink. This should increase speed of territory expansion and allow for better security of each infantry squad as it will be covered by another one. 

 

R7ZyzuH.jpg

 

T2qj0iY.jpg

   Kommandos almost done with taking Delta, while SGB only started to hack Zulu. Grenadiers are waiting for Kommandos to be done.

 

PXL1dOk.jpg

   Kurochnik is aggressive and went straight for Foxtrot uplink. That may be a problem in later part of this mission.

 

   First contacts:

Spoiler

Yjio2O5.jpg

   SGB gunships and our own are clearing area near base entrance near Lima point. Meanwhile Grenadiers are rushing to Bravo to take it and secure it with UGVs.

 

64Uq8xt.jpg

   Now Kamovs are going to be our target. 

 

RHUp906.jpg

   Missile barrage connected with Kamovs, but only managed to damage one of gunships. Alexander deployed at least 3 infantry units, one is on Foxtrot, second one took W and last one iss upgrading Z.

 

E5kgZHW.jpg

   Badgers arrived to attack Kamovs, shielding Kommandos that are capturing Alpha building.

 

zew1APs.jpg

   Kamov's missile barrage also managed to only damage one of APCs. SGB operatives that were hacking Foxtrot dropped their work and now are going to do something else. Not too bad for us, give me some time to grab more territory.

 

xt1SEXz.jpg   Cheetahs are chasing Kamovs, scouting SGB LZ in the same time. Zhukov SPGs, 2nd BTR-112 team, platoon of T-100s and Wolfes running out of Zulu are visible here. Those are Alexander's main troops that we need to break in order to have a chance to win. 

 

   Now real action starts:

Spoiler

2PYThsA.jpg

   EMP strike disabled SPGs and Panthers MBTs. Sign of an attack attempt by SGB troops.

 

oOlXf7s.jpg

   Badgers acted as blocking unit to those BTRs, giving time for tanks and artillery guns to recover from EMP, now Marksmans are dropping HEs on those SPAAGs. Our own transports lost 1 vic and 2nd one is damaged, but it is combat capable.

 

gsbXz67.jpg

   Another EMP, not it was targeted on Badgers, gunships and battle tanks. 

 

81SF93u.jpg

   Badgers lost 2nd vic from Zhukov's fire. Kurochnik tries to soften up our defences before breaching our part of military base. Our own SPGs were tasked with shelling enemy artillery pieces, as other troops can't attack them directly.

 

0MmOQO6.jpg

   3rd (!) EMP, it was mainly aimed against my gunships. Alexander probably saw their movement towards Zhukovs and decided to stop this raid.

 

yF8tThM.jpg

   BTRs are using this moment to fire at Cheetahs. That is bad, we will not get out of this without casualties.

 

6mvdm8z.jpg

   I'm using a gun run against KV-20s, as there is no other way to finish them faster.

 

KDSq1Kg.jpg

   Gunships recovered from effect of EMP, i immediately ordered them to run. 1 of choppers was shot down.

 

mtUt4jU.jpg

   Zhukovs are still alive, while 2nd team of Cheetahs is not 2 helicopters down.

 

BkPbGF6.jpg

   Fresh team of Russian attack helicopters is moving towards our troops and BTRs are bursting through Lima entrance. SGB launched an assault against our troops inside of Grissom air force base.

 

   Shpetsnaz' unstoppable onslaught:

Spoiler

Bp1n3LE.jpg

   BTRs killed remaining gunships of 2nd team of Cheetahs and now are pushing inside, right next to our tanks.

 

fYBkmmw.jpg

   Panthers were attacked by Kamovs before Badgers managed to scare them way, combined attack of BTRs and attack choppers cost us 2 tanks. In the same time Kurochnik's infantry managed to grab Lima and Yankee, i was forced to crash Zulu in order to postpone establishment of Russian EW dominance. More Kamovs are flying towards Enforcer corps troops.

 

F5SyyEy.jpg

   Sierra is now under SGB control, we have less than 5 minutes to capture at least 1 uplink. We managed to defeat BTRs that pushed through Lima entrance.

 

YB91hQn.jpg

   Cheetahs were tasked with clearing Foxtrot, as bulk of Shpetsnaz troops was in other sectors. Kamovs managed to defeat our heavy armor in the same time.

 

PE17XVW.jpg

   Badgers are trying to keep those vultures in check, but Alexander brought at least 3 teams of those things. T-100s are near Lima, probably looking for a good entry point. Situation is getting out of control.

 

IhEvbed.jpg

   Moved APCs close, so we can use our Microwave weapon against Kamovs. 2nd unit of SHORAD vis was called in to help us cope with waves of attack choppers.

 

qY7VPct.jpg

   Heavily damaged unit of BTRs during first clashes is trying to flank my troops located near Alpha position. Alexander is again going for multiply direction assault.

 

FQzs7iC.jpg

   Kamovs went straight for SPGs, that were working on leftovers of flanking Cockroach unit. SGB definitely is very committed to steamroll us!

 

RI5Pgoe.jpg

   Grenadiers were retreating from Bravo, but were found by assault formation. Shpetsnaz operatives with support of T-100s is slaughtering them, using all weapons including flamethrowers. Grenadiers have no chances.

 

o1yOats.jpg

   Cheetahs are tryng to at least force Kamovs to retreat, but those guys are stubborn as fuck. Marksmans launched MRLS strike against SGB flanking group.

 

eIWLSdy.jpg

   1 SPG battery is out of action, Grenadiers are also were smashed into pieces, 2 BTRs are almost on Alpha uplink. Alexander managed to envelope almost completely all troops near Alpha uplink.

 

IbyYChI.jpg

   That is a lot of Kamovs...

 

vTThv60.jpg

   BTRs near Alpha were finished by Marksman's HE shells, but Alexander is not stopping his attack. In the same time Bravo is now beng hacked by Shpetsnaz operatives that managed to destroy all UGVs that were defending uplink.

 

eLWP0iD.jpg

   2nd team of Badgers arrived and now engagin waves of Kamovs. I called more APCs and tanks to do something with this onslaught. We lost another unit of gunships, my troops are getting short on numbers.

 

VIpO4af.jpg

   Damn, those BTRs managed to drop infantry squad before being turning into coffins. SPGs are under fire and we have no way to get out in time, as roads here are convoluted.

 

1qlJGET.jpg

   Duo of Badgers is trying to defend SPGs from infantry squad that is rushing towards Alpha server hub.

 

L6axUdD.jpg

   EMP strike, it managed to disable ALL vehicles on here, and only Kommandos that found good cover in a building near Alpha, are not affected. They are fighting with very aggressive Shpetsnaz operatives, who are rushing towards position A.

 

9qC21z4.jpg

   Kommandos managed to defeat Alexander's infantry, but rest of troops in serious trouble. BTRs are charging our position, same with Kamovs as they feel a smell of blood from a wounded units of SHORAD.

 

YzMhkZ5.jpg

   SPGs and APCs are under concentrated fire, we have no places to retreat... 

 

 ww3sGVD.jpg

   3 units are out of action - both AA APCs and SPGs. At this point situation is obvious - 2 minutes is not enough to get out of this whole crap. I can try to drop WMD on this huge pile of SGB troops to secure Kommandos and at least give them a chance to rush to Foxtrot. Space laser attack is coming, motherfuckers!

 

MMV0ydB.jpg

   At least 3 or 4 units were hit by our WMD attack!

 

tNvxI1a.jpg

   Kamovs are rushing now towards Delta, as freshly deployed troops are just started to move out of landing area. Badgers already launching their missile against Russian helicopters.

 

k4O1wwM.jpg

   Kamovs are moving back, Alexander is dropping his own WMD on our forces.

 

S71S20G.jpg

 

vsaZCG8.jpg

   ... i'm still not done. Kommandos are rushing towards Foxtrot. EMP was used to catch 2nd team of gunships. 

 

mJuOSwY.jpg

   2nd team of Cheetahs was rather expertly shot down, but i brought 3rd one as well. We have no time left, and even if F uplink will be taken, Kurochnik's troops managed to secure vast majority of uplinks anyway.

 

uix73n8.jpg

   Kommandos are on Foxtrot, SGB is now conducting attack on our LZ.

 

n5KB0AX.jpg

 

qC850Vy.jpg

 

   Results:

Spoiler

KLcERfK.jpg

   In this operation i lost 4 (!) units as KIA. Definitely going to replay this match, as this is about as much KIA as in previous 17 battles combined! I have no idea how hard futher missions would be without good experienced and upgraded troops...
