YA, the hind is a little, hmmm hard to kill? Is that what phrase I am looking for? Or its a bug introduced in remastered sabow? While air craft never blow up alas. They should stop attacking and fly off the screen when hit with a 105mm HE shell I would think.

Fantastic shots - the night-time illuminated images are great.

Yea, I was a tad baffled. But then again, it also takes 4 or 5 shots to kill a T-55 with a HEAT round, so I guess it's all proportional. I was shocked by their long range accuracy; taking hits at over 2400m! My rangefinder couldn't keep up!

Al-Ṭāif, Mekkah Go...
what a battle whukid... i know your struggle, the iraqis always fight for last, they'r harsh and unforgiving when you siege thme to a corner.. i will remember this story


when u come under aerial attack always conduct evasive manouevers to evade incoming bullets, at night time scan vigorously using both IR and normal vision, the enemy may have his lights put on at night, this can be seen long away, also, make no mistake, even if it seems like nothing is there, if u focus very sharply on the image, you can catch a faint shape, it sometimes happens

The Southern flank, 2200 hours.

The "skeleton Iraqi Infantry" had three tank platoons in reserve, unbeknownst to the Iranians. As their armored spearhead approached the highway from the east, a close range melee ensued. Neither side's IR systems appeared to be working, and the gunners were forced to use the tracers of their coaxial machineguns to identify their targets. Though the Iranians began the melee by opening fire first, the Iraqi's quickly annihilated the combined arms group and wiped the entire armored force out within 20 minutes. A reserve platoon was also destroyed completely as it rushed to the aid of the attack. 12 Iranian tanks and Armored Personnel carriers were left mere feet from the road as 3 T-55's, a T-62, 3 BMP's and a BTR-60PB were also knocked out. The void left over from the action was quickly filled with Iraqi infantry.


a final, short action


Combined arms force moves on the crossroads


IR sights were useless as no one had any light




"So much for old men and boys.."


Knocked out at the crossroads


Final desperate moments at the crossroads.


Gunners were forced to use tracers and explosions instead of their IR night sights.

The BMP's were caught by the reserve platoon and fell like flies before the platoon was also overwhelmed



only feet from their objective..


T-55 and small arms mops up the reserve platoon survivors


The Iraqi's had substantial reserves, contrary to military intelligence



the battlefield

In the morning, a counterattack by the Iraqi infantry is blunted by a barrage from M60's being used as self propelled artillery. 2 M60's and a T-55 are lost in the exchange, along with another BMP and BTR. Soon the clear skies give way to more rain, and the fire dies down.

As the sun comes up the Iranians scramble to regain the initiative. An immediate armored spearhead is ordered on a north to south bearing, flanking the Iraqi gains and giving the Iranian infantry breathing room.

A flight of F-5's supports the Iranians as the Pattons surge forward. This time, it is the Iraqi's who are caught in the open. T-55's desperately maneuvering to escape the relentless strafing runs by the F-5's are identified and fired upon at a thousand yards. Unlike usual, the first two go up in flames in the first salvo. A T-62 is caught just behind the first T-55's and also destroyed. As the force continues to push south, another T-55 is identified and suffers the same fate. The Iraqi's quickly retreat, as the Iranians appear to vastly outnumber them. 5 Iraqi vehicles are destroyed while the Iranians suffer no losses.


105mm fire from entrenched Patton tanks on its way to Iraqi positions. The fire was incredibly effective, killing a platoon commander and destroying a BMP

The Iraqi armored force was wiped out in mere minutes


The real MVP


Caught in the open and destroyed


The Iranians smash the Iraqi position


Iranian infantry quickly overtake the farthest advances from the previous night, but there are no survivors

In a desperate bid to recapture their positions, the Iraqi's launch an all out counter assault with their only remaining units. Two more T-62's are destroyed as they advance through the fog and a short infantry action and point blank range leaves an M60 damaged. As the fog lifts, BMP's begin a AT-3 barrage, but to no effect. Now the range finders on the M60's are working correctly, and each is knocked out in turn at 1100 yards. The Iranian perimeter is finally advanced beyond the crossroads, but at a heavy cost.


T-62's are knocked out as they advance to the north


Defending the crossroads


The Iraqi's are quickly mopped up in turn, again without Iranian loss.


Overrun supply trucks

In the south the campaign is over. The Iraqi armored forces have been wiped out, though at a heavy cost. In the north, a final attempt to recapture the causeways over the irrigation canal is met head on by an Iranian combined arms force. Quickly the Iraqi infantry is dispatched small arms fire along with their carriers, but the T-55's following in their wake quickly knock out an M60 and force the other to occupy a hull-down position and take pot-shots until the mechanized reserve arrives from the south. High explosive and SABOT rounds pound the Iranian positions and make crossing the irrigation canal a costly move. M47 Dragon teams begin firing at the two remaining T-55's and account for one. The remaining T-55 continues to fire on the causeway, in spite of accurate fire from the M60.


An M60 is knocked out by accurate T-55 fire.


The remaining M60 continues to fire on the T55 position


Neither side is having any effect

The Iranian attack is successful. Iraqi forces have suffered huge casualties and are forced back, however the Iranians also suffer terribly.

Dateline: Afghanistan. A detachment of 70th Guards MRR has been attacked and enveloped by the mujahideen. 24th Tank Regiment is sent to the rescue. The detachment has been badly smashed, but our T62s and T55s assault mujahideen infantry in the open, with the fighters supported by AA guns.

Great slaughter ensues and we sweep them from the field.



On the advance! For Mother Russia!



Moving forward past the bodies of mujahideen fighters caught in the open



Our assault is so shocking that we begin to take prisoners



A hidden AA gun in the AT role lurks behind trees lining a canal. Our coax gets the shots off first. This gun had destroyed an advancing BTR



Fighters lay where they have fallen



We caught the mujahideen in an armoured pincer movement

No, I ended the campaign since it was obvious I controlled the field. The remaining Iraqi was only 2 tanks strong, so I didn't really think it would be worth going through more losses.

I haven't decided what to do next. maybe the Iraqi campaign? The Angolan campaign always annoys me because I can't see through the thick underbrush. Realistic, but infuriating.

there is great terrain... a mountain, I will tell you about it later, it is on angola and it is focal fighting point and very good defensive position.. the secret to survive in angola is to hide and not be seen and launch vigorous attacks at night, at day the enemy is too many and powerful to confront

Iraqi campaign is a harsh adventure, u have no infantry, but it is very interesting and fun.. it's very very hard though, and the weather is terrible, dig in and hold for last with your tanks against the onslaught, i will share with you supreme terrain and defensive positions from ishan-al-khamarra that may help you in the iraqi campaign
