Cold War Gone Hot supplement to suit the figures available and we used the Force on Force rules.
The scenario three fire teams and a sniper team from the BAOR holed up in a West German village behind the Soviet lines. The Soviets have deployed two squads to winkle them out of the village.
The BAOR objective was to withdraw without taking many casualties whilst the Soviets' was to eliminate the threat.
The Soviets advanced from the south and the east towards the village. The southern group were spotted by one of the BAOR fire teams who attempted to engage them; however, the Soviets got the drop on them and a firefight ensued. A another group then emerged further along the woods and were spotted by the sniper team, who opened up. Unfortunately this drew a hail of fire in which the observer went down.
Meanwhile the eastern group were advancing under cover of some woods. But one of their fire teams was spotted by another BAOR group (with a GPMG) and engaged - taking them out of action.
With the Soviets keeping the initiative they kept the British under pressure. One Soviet group emerged from the woods to the east and, with covering fire from the group to the south charged toward one of the BAOR positions. Having already taken some casualties they were in a desperate state and decided to use the Karl Gustav! This made the Soviets reconsider and the charge faltered at the edge of the woods.
With three of the British positions under attack the remaining fire team decided to move to help the south eastern position withdraw given then casualties. They moved rapidly across the crossroads into the buildings despite coming under some Soviet fire. The position was then evacuated under more fire and the withdrawal began.
With the Soviets advancing more cautiously now, it took them a little time to realise that the pigeons had flown the coup and this gave the BAOR the change to slip away. However, as a result of the considerable casualties they had taken the victory was really the Soviets'.
