The Argentine supply problem was getting worse. Moving enough material, especially mortar and artillery ammunition, by helicopter was proving to be more difficult than planned. In addition, the gunships had taken losses at a rate that could not be sustained. With the loss of fire support, the brigade commander decided to stop pushing towards San Carlos Water and withdraw out of range of the British escort ships there.

Meanwhile, General Moore saw an opportunity to cut off the stranded paratroopers. 40th RMC began to push from the west while 45th RMC held firm on the east side of the pocket. The Gurkhas were tasked with making the main effort from the south. Parts of the battalion were moved by helicopter, others walked and the last company was being moved by the BV-202s of 3rd Commando Brigade. The tracked snow machines had proven to be quite adept at crossing the wet peat bogs of East Falkland.

As the pressure began to increase on the Argentine Brigade, the order to withdraw was issued. Helicopters would make several lifts on the night of June 7 and move the paratroopers back to Port Stanley where they could refit and assist in the defense of the city. The only problem was the Gurkhas who continued to press in from the south. The Air Force Commandos and attached paratroopers were ordered to hold them back long enough to allow the rest of the brigade to reach the landing zones just to the north. But the Gurkhas were on them before they could dig in. If the Commandos could hold, the only thing that could stop the withdrawal would be mother nature!

Played with the X Mod and the OBJ option.
One of the better Falkland scenarios.
