Krasnovian Invasion, USA 1999
U.S. OOB / Victory Conditions

GHQ W46 T-80 with Reactive ArmourModern Spearhead demo scenario from PointCon 1999. It is a scenario based on an actual U.S. training battle fought at NTC.

The Soviet backed Krasnovian forces have launched a massive invasion of the Southern Continental United States. The Krasnovian 15th Combined Arms Army is moving to capture the juncture of Interstates 15 and 40 at Barstow, California, thus cutting off the main route leading from Arizona into Los Angeles. This area is being defended by the U.S. 20th Corps.

In support of this, the 26th Krasnovian MRD, which forms the northernmost element of the 1st echelon of the 15th CAA, is moving to fix in place the suspected enemy division (believed to be the U.S. 4th Armored Division) that is defending the area North of Barstow, in the vicinity of Fort Irwin; and thus isolating the actual U.S. division defending Barstow from potential reinforcement. This will also cover the 15th CAA from any CATKs (Counter ATtacKs) from the North. Meanwhile the U.S. 4th Armored Division defends the vicinity of Fort Irwin in support of 20th Corps defense of the East-West lines of communications formed by Interstates 15 and 40.

Please note: This scenario was developed during the early stages of Modern Spearhead's development so the balance of the scenario may have changed slightly once the final version of Modern Spearhead and Errata is taken into account.

Terrain

Fort Irwin - Bicycle Lake Region

Battlefield is 8' x 5' (or up to 10' x 6' if you have it available) with entry points as marked above, and Fort Irwin should be represented as approximately 4-6 Town Sectors in size with a central crossroads. U.S. Forces may deploy up to 12" in from marked table edges if desired. Krasnovians enter from marked table edges on Turn 1. Both sides may flank march on the long table edge opposite their entry zone up to half way along (i.e. the Krasnovians on the 4' of Northern Edge closest to them, the U.S. on the 4' of Southern edge closest to them). Krasnovian Helicopters may be deemed to enter from anywhere on the South or East table edge, U.S. the West table edge. Krasnovian Artillery units have 7 Fire Missions (for HE, Smoke, or for the Rocket Battalion up to 2 non-persistant Chemical attacks costing 2 FMs each), & U.S. Artillery have 9 FMs and any specialist ammo types normally available (as rules, costing 1 or 2 FM as appropriate) except any Chemicals (you can't risk dosing your own civilians) or Chemical Smoke (not available). Nuclear weapons are not available to either side, and both sides must specify pre-game what round types & how many the fire missions' for each unit are. The Game Length is 18 Turns and all other rules are as per standard rule book.

* SLUFAE (Surface-Launched Unit, Fuel-Air Explosive) is a mine clearing FAE system, consisting of a 30-tube (20kg) rocket launcher mounted on a modified M548 tracked vehicle. The XM130 SLUFAE has a range of about 150m, and the rocket then explodes a few feet above the ground and the FAE warhead creates a large overpressure area causing land mines to detonate. In MSH it has DEF 2 (5), must move at combat speed or less to conduct mine clearing, clears a 2.5" wide by 2.5" deep section of Minefield (i.e. centred on and immediately in front of the stand), but must throw 2+ on D6 to be successful (unlike other Mine Clearers - see 15.2.3 Page 35) but Kills any unarmoured stands and causes an automatic Suppression of any armored stands in the area of Minefield cleared (due to the combined FAE explosion and simultaneous detonation of multiple mines). It may not clear mines in the area immediately under it's own stand (i.e. if it is already inside the minefield). Two SLUFAEs can fairly rapidly clear a Company wide lane through a minefield.

** Any of the three FIST-V FOs can call in the Brigade Artillery Battalion each turn, although it can still only fire once (so essentially 3 Fighting Battalions can benefit from having an FO present for requesting the artillery support).

Victory

The Krasnovians win by occupying their objective (the 'Communications Centre' Town Sector) and having moved 3 Battalions (each of at least 5 stands) off the West table edge before or while it is occupied (i.e. securing the Western approach to it) and preventing the U.S Victory conditions; or by destroying/routing 4 of the 5 U.S. 'fighting' Battalions. The U.S. win by getting 3 Battalions (of at least 5 stands) off the East table edge (securing the start line for the 4th Armored Division's main attack) and preventing the Krasnovian Victory conditions; or by destroying/routing two-thirds or more of the up 18-21 Krassnovian 'fighting' Battalions. Any other result is a draw.
