Southwest Germany, June 10th 1985: The area of operations in Bavaria is similar to the Ardennes, in so far as the Bayerischer and Bohmer Walds have the same terrain. NATO planners were mostly of the opinion that an attack here was very unlikely because of that terrain. The situation of a surprise attack is also similar, but there are differences too, the major ones being the density of forces and air neutrality, particularly the use of helicopters. In this scenario, the 4th CSLA is tasked with moving through this country with the object of crossing the Danube and moving rapidly west. To win here, using surprise, they must move fast to exploit the situation before NATO can bring reserves to counter this attack. NATO forces start with a lot of Fixed units and must use their assets wisely until reinforcements arrive. [Size, medium] Designer Note: This scenario has been optimized for HTH play.
