Austria, June 10th 1985: This scenario covers the possible WARPAC invasion of Austria as a flanking maneuver into southern Germany. While a strike through Austria may look attractive at first glance, the drawback for the WARPAC is that the Soviet units allocated to the invasion are scattered, in various bases almost 500km away, resulting in a long road march just to reach the battlefield. The solution for the WARPAC was to put a unit 'on maneuvers' near the Austrian border. The Austrians for their part coud be expected to make a decent showing until the Danube was breached. After that, the situation would collapse, with WARPAC forces racing across central Austria to reach deep into NATO's Southern flank, while "swatting the flies" that remained in their path. [Size: Medium] Designer note: Although technically 'neutral', Austrian units move & fight under the NATO player's command. Explicit Supply is possible. This scenario has been optimized for HTH play.
