This scenario uses variable objective victory points) After the initial actions in Operation Compass, the Italians were expelled from Egypt and pushed back into Libya.

Once through the initial defenses, the Australians rolled up the defensive bunkers from both the flank and rear. This scenario covers the initial engagement by the 16th Brigade leading up until 17th Brigade was committed.
