A Red Dawn game…
Just like the Wolverines would have liked it.
We used Force on Force (that is my buddy used the FoF hard-bound book for the vehicle stats and I ran the game with the Tomorrow War book – maybe a bit twisted at times). Wolverines took out the column with SMAWs after the Russian Armor took out the US QRF with cannonfire. Boiling down to an infantry fight – at least until the Hinds shows up.
1 Squad Paras with BMP-3 (KO; 1 of 7 dead)
1 Squad Paras with BTR (1 dead; two wounded of 7; 3 indeterminate casualties); only surviving armored vehicle
2 Squads Paras with Truck (KO; 4 dead and two wounded of 15)
1 HQ fireteam with Jeep (5 good to go)
1 Up-Armored HMMWV with Tow (KO)
1 Squad US Army Regulars with HMMWV pick-up (KO; crew bailed)
1 Squad US Army Regulars with AMTRAC (KO; 2 of 7 wounded)
1 Squad SWAT with 2 Police Cars and Suburban (9 of 15 dead)
1 Squad Patrolman (1 dead and 2 wounded of 7)
2 Squads Wolverines with SMAW (ATGM) (14 of 15 dead)
1 Squad Wolverines Snowmobilers (4 of 4 dead)
Russians held objective when game called, but US still in an up-hill fight. WOLVERINES!!!!
