The action takes place around a newly arrived Japanese battalion and their mission to clear a hill ready for the positioning of an artillery battery to support the assault on the Yentai Coal Mines.
To: Lt Bogdan Tankov,
You must take the top of the enemy hill to enable the deployment of siege artillery.
2 Sections of 10 men
Excellent: Throw the Japanese back down the hill. Capture the Japanese Colours.
Good: Throw the Japanese back down the hill.
Bad: Let the Japanese take the hill.
The first outing went to plan, the static Russians were performing OK in defence, but once the shock started to pile up, the Russian's were pinned and easily out flanked by the nibble Japanese.
The HMG forced a rethink on the Japanese command until sufficent forces could be brought to bear to out manover it.
As always comments welcome.
Back to the painting table for more reinforcements.
