|Combat area the "pod" is located in middle of board in crater|
The scenario was set durning 2nd Interstellar war on Discovery colony. Durning NEU campaing againts OPS unknown object fall into one of the smaller towns. The object was indentified by both combatants as pod of unknown origins - both Brazil Marines and US droptroops was sended to area to identify object and gather inteligence.
The US forces arrived first and got first turn while Brazil forces slowly advancing and set up perimeter.
"This is Talon 1, we arrived at AO, no signs of hostiles, proceeding with mission over."
|US Platoon slowly advancing|
Scout team equipped with single SAW proceed toward church, while rest of platoon took more direct route, one fireteam established OP in tower next to the crossroads.
"Talon 3 to Talon 1! we are being enga......"
"This is Talon 1! repeat your last transmission over!"
|Brazilian forces start pushing US forces back|
"Talon 1 to King six! we are being engaged by NEU infantry! 20+ footmobiles supported by SAGPs!"
|Brazilians engaged US in deadly firefight|
two fireteams moved forward to fix US fireteams. Under heavy fire US forces managed to gain foothold in building near pod.
Both forces being tired, low on ammunition , US Commander decided to make dash toward pod with single fireteam but was caught in brutal crossfire and eventualy whole team were tear down by enemy fire.
the game ended as marginal victory for Brazilians, since they managed to inflict more losses on US althought pod was not recovered by any side.
My friend was very excited by game mechanics, and intensity of game (it was his first hard scifi wargaming battle) so expect more reports in future.
