[El Firdan, Suez Canal, Egypt]: [H2H][HIS][CSL]: At 1405 on 6 October, the Egyptian armies opened with a devastating artillery barrage. Nearly 2,000 artillery and mortar pieces, 1,000 tanks, and 1,000 anti-tank guns pounded the Bar-Lev line. Within 15 minutes, the first wave of Egyptian infantry crossed the canal, by-passed the forts, and moved inland to establish defensive positions. With the forts of the Bar-Lev line surrounded and under assault, the Israeli's readied their local tank forces to immediately counterattack and relieve the garrisons. Caught unprepared, the tactical successes of the 1967 War made the Israelis overconfident. In the battle that followed, they paid in blood to learn new lessons about well-trained Egyptian Soldiers equipped with Soviet Anti-Tank Guided Missiles. [ALL: NOVV][NONE][1.00]
