Nestled amongst the DW2 clips i saw a still for a game with a tank and wondered what it was - much delving later and it is thus



Well crap, that just looks awesome to me - Wargame Airland Battle era but with tweaks and improvements - my money awaits

Broken Arrow demo stuff -

This is the opening part of the mission, clear this area, specifically a tank platoon and 6 ground to air missile launchers around the map, take this small island, advance onto main island in distance, taking a hill fort that has artillery batteries on that will destroy our main landing forces, and take important areas on that island



Our starting point is covered by this bad boy



I move our marines up in their landing craft, whilst marine recon elements stay in the high rises and keep an eye on the tank, and also order some AT Dragon troops



The marines wait for the dragon troops to destroy the tank before they occupy the buildings



A landing craft ordered back to base for a points refund chooses a route out of the front of the building in front of the enemy tank



Dragon troops arrive and fire the first AT missile, seen heading across the first pond



Down one T72



A BRDM comes to see what all the noise is about



And he gets a dragon in the face too



Marines move up the left and right flank and soon spot 2 of the missile launchers



And they both go down quickly with hardly any armour



A Hind starts buzzing the right flank, I order up a Stinger team and stick them on the right



and it doesnt last long



Supporting the advance of the marines on the left we lose a LAV to some BRDMS at the crossroads



But we return the favour on the other side of town



I bring in supplies and more marines for the left flank



The marines on the right face their first ambush, the LAV moves forward to provide fire support



Its been a much easier ride for the right flankers



With a reinforced line across the centre the enemy send naval unit reinforcements





After intense CQB house to house fighting the right is clear and these troops move left to consolidate the force



Forces close in on the last missile launcher



Mission accomplished



We need these guys........ over there



Ospreys inbound



Get to the chopper.......



'Clear the fort, take the fort'



A viper decimates the artillery on the hill whilst the Ospreys start dropping off the marines



Hidden AA assets open fire on the Ospreys but they deliver their load safely and return to base



I take the hill, it just needs holding long enough in the face of an enemy para assault whilst our main landing force comes in



Here they come



We hold them off - the main landing force is inbound with abrams, lavs, marines........



and then the demo craps out and kicks me out with a blue screen - good news, its a great game and fun to play, i played on half speed and it looks and works great at that speed - bad news, theres no save function or autosave so the 2 hours it took to get here has gone

Huh… you got a lot farther than I did. I couldn’t figure out if, or even how, to get more troops than what started on the map and got overwhelmed badly… more reading on my part I guess. :Loser:
