The Iraqis suffered a heavy defeat in this 'modern' game using Team Yankee rules. The Iranians delivered a left flank attack spearheaded by Chieftains, supported by TOW jeeps, which enabled their infantry to assault and take the objective. The Iraqi T72s were a big disappointment and could hardly land a blow against the Iranian M60s.

Also of note was the appearance of Cobra and Crocodile (Hind) attack helicopters. The Cobras had some limited success before falling prey to the Crocodiles. The Crocks had the run of the table thereafter, although failed to KO anything other than a solitary Chieftain.

Interestingly, both armies have some decent modern equipment, for the 1980s, although their training and skill levels leave a lot to be desired. The Iranians have better morale and can remount 'bailed out' vehicles more easily, which also helped give them the edge in this game.

Operation Nasr in reverse.

Reads like a great game.

Nice! I also want to try a game set in the war between Iran and Iraq.
