[Chinese Farm, Suez Canal, Egypt]: [H2H][HIS][CSL]: After crossing south of the Akavish Road to avoid fire from the Egyptians defending the abandoned Japanese experimental agricultural station, the "Chinese Farm", at the Titur and Lexicon crossroads, the Israeli 14th Armoured Brigade organized an assault to secure the crossroads. Skirting along the canal, the 7th Tank Battalion was tasked with seizing the Egyptian bridges south of Ismaylia. The 7th advanced unmolested past the Shick-Lexicon crossroads, as the Egyptians were not expecting to have Israeli tanks behind their lines, until they ran into elements of the Egyptian 21st Tank Division. After a brief battle, the remainder of the battalion pulled back to the crossroads. Realizing the battalion had stumbled into the logistical hub of the Egyptian 16th Infantry Division, the Israelis took advantage of the situation. Further south, the Israeli 18th Tank Battalion following the 7th was attacked from Egyptian positions along the Lexicon road. Once the Egyptians realize the Israelis were in their midst counterattacking Egyptians secured the Titur-Lexicon crossroads, cutting off the two Israeli battalions. During the night, the Israeli tank battalions under continuous attack were going to be fighting for their lives. [ALL NOVV][NONE][1.00]

Interesting scenario design. Israeli tanks vs swarms of Egyptian infantry well equipped with AT capability all taking place at night. The Israelis could have used more artillery than just two mortar units. Finally, Egyptians are well dug in with bunkers and trenches. Not sure in its present form if the Israelis will ever get a major victory.
