Every Thursday night in San Antonio Texas Chris Lisanti and crew from the Lone Star Historical Miniatures (LSHM) Battlefront group play a Team Yankee, Flames of War – WWII, Flames of War – Vietnam, or Fate of Nations Arab-Israeli War game.

This week was Team Yankee – here is the battle report:

WW III Wrap Up. Nathanael (Soviet T-80 Shock Battalion + E. German T-55 Battalion) attacked Chris (USMC Rifle and LAV companies) in the contact mission.

Things started off well for the Warsaw Pact with three infantry stands dying from T-55 machine gun fire on the left flank. However, 5 USMC Pattons came in from ambush decimating the T-55s and throwing the remaining few backwards. The right flank was initially a gun duel between the BMP-2s and the LAVs (both standard and AT LAVs).

The LAVs got the upper hand until the carnations wiped out 3 LAVs breaking the LAV formation while the BMPs ran from the battlefield--a bloody draw leaving both infantry units holding their respective objectives. The big boys were in reserve.

The T-80s came in more slowly from immediate reserve while the M1A1 Abrams came in earlier (delayed reserves) which amounted to them coming in about the same time. The three Abrams duked it out with three T-80s on the right flank while the 5 Pattons were playing hide and seek with three other T-80s on the left flank.

In the end, the T-80s on the right flank survived the first volley of shots from the Abrams, but then failed to pass a firepower test to kill one of them. The following return fire was more effective killing a T-80. The T-80s then could not destroy any Abrams and with well positioned HMMWV ATs and effective Abrams shooting along with poor saves decimated the remaining two T-80s.

Lastly, the T-80s on the left flank killed a single Patton, but then positioned themselves allowing the Pattons to blitz and then get side shots eliminating those T-80s. The Warsaw Pact conceded the battle to the Americans.

Next week late war FOW.

Looks great. The M1A1s really do pack a punch.
