Dawn Conditions

The attack on 'Wireless Ridge' was part of the attacks on seven hills, required to allow an advance on Port Stanley. The attack force was composed by the 2nd Para Battalion , supported by Artillery and Naval units. Their initial assault over an hill known as 'Rough Diamond' started with a massive bombardment of the area. When 2nd Para A and B Co´s advanced, they found the Argentinean positions empty. After a small setback when A and B Co´s had again to call in a massive bombardment to clear the Argentine Compañía C of the 7th Infantry Regiment from the 'Apple Pie' hill, the stage was set for the final advance on the final elevation of 'Wireless Ridge'.

After another heavy bombardment, D Co of the 2nd Para Bat advanced through the western side of the hill relatively easily. They the re-grouped, and with flank fire support being provided by the A and B Co's they advanced to clear the remainder of 'Wireless Ridge'.

Scenario Variant : On this variant the British start their attack with dawn and the Argentineans manage to bring the 10th Armoured Car Squadron to counterattack the British Advance. The British will receive the remainder of the light tanks of the Blues & Royals as reinforcements.
