[Bir Gifgafa, Sinai Peninsula]:[H2H][HIS][CSL]: Bir Gifgafa was one of the various Egyptian army camps in the central Sinai, location of elements of the 4th Armoured Division to provide a counterattack force for the 2nd Infantry Division situated in Umm Qatef. Israel’s 60th Armoured Brigade led the advance through the central Sinai. AMX-13 light tanks in the lead as it approached the Egyptian camp. A battle of maneuver commenced as the Israeli's soon realized the armament of the AMX-13's was not enough to penetrate the frontal armour of the Egyptian T-55's scattered around the camp.

Israel's tank force in this one is a mix of great tanks and crappy French AMX-13's. The Egyptians have a large force of T-54's. I only had 2 operational tanks at the end of the scenario but my tanks held his forces off long enough to deny him all but 1 victory point. Tough for the Israeli's to break in to the Egyptian base.

Lots of tank vs tank action in this one. The burden is on the Israelis with less than ideal tanks to take the objective hexes. Good scenario!

Mike is a bastage :P Good fight. Israeli Reups come about 2-3 turns too late IMO.., but the AMX's can dance!
