The scenario was a straightforward Take & Hold, with an Objective building at each side of the battlefield, and 2 central Objective buildings. My Republican Guard leapfrogged along the buildings towards the 2 central objectives, whilst one fireteam tried rushing along a side alley to reach the centre-most Objective. However, they took a few casualties from Tim's opening shots.
Overall I was very lucky with my hit rolls, & also with my Morale checks, which I had to take every time I was fired at, being a Low Confidence force. Having a Ba'athist Part Official re-roll was useful, but I only used it 3 times. In contrast, I thought Tim was quite unlucky with his own damage & Morale rolls. My T-55 flanked my advance, & forced the snipers down from the cliff with cannon fire which seriously wounded one, and then blasted a marine fireteam which had moved into the rocks near Objective 1. It took me 2 pushes to get into Objective 2 in the centre of the board, but once I had established all my fireteams in the central Objectives, they were able to lay down heavy fire on the approaching marines, whilst shrugging off most incoming fire.
However, as the marines eventually pulled back in the face of significant casualties, one US soldier knocked-out the T-55 with an AT-4 rocket, & the crew had to bail. Despite this, a heavy Iraqi fusillade felled the surviving US marines who were trying to retreat through the ruin near the cliff, and only the US MG team made it off the board, escaping from the bunker on the right flank of the Iraqi force. As a parting shot, the CO who was now lying wounded in the ruins had called-in an airstrike on Objective 2, which hit and wrecked both that building, and the adjacent Objective 1 - but miraculously only caused 3 Iraqi casualties!
The Republican Guard suffered 3 killed & 3 seriously wounded, plus numerous light wounds. The USMC had 7 killed, 6 seriously wounded, plus 4 survivors near the cliff who may have been captured along with the wounded after the battle. I think this is only the 2nd game of Force on Force I have ever won, but I did have some above-average rolling. The victory could have been Pyrrhic if the airstrike had killed more Republican Guard.
