By sheerest coincidence, a large enemy force is headed towards the village conducting a reconnaissance in force after word that "the great satan's helicopters " were seen landing in the area.
The enemy force consists of a regular mechanized squad mounted in an M113 along with 2 T-55 tanks all from the "revolutionary guards", and a sizable contingent of irregular paramilitary forces of the enemy's famed "martyr" brigade.
|Movement to Contact! American forces on the LZ moving out towards the village.|
|Moving through some irrigated crops|
|Lead squad in the village takes up overwatch positions|
|Martyr Brigade paramilitary fanatics moving towards the village.|
|American forces scurrying into the village. So far all is going according to plan.|
|Off in the distance, the GIs see the familiar "rooster tails" that an armored force is on the move...They hear the rumbling and squeaking of armored vehicles and their stomachs turn.|
|Martyr Brigade fanatics advance! 2 T-55s from the Revolutionary Guards are moving down the road. They have no idea what to expect in the town.|
|My Roskopf Soviet T-55 doubling as an enemy AFV. The one behind him is my latest Cold War vehicle to roll off the assembly line.|
|"Hey Sarge, this place reminds of southern Iraq." "Just keep moving, soldier. We're not here to sight-see"|
|another US squad reaches the village.|
|end of the US first turn. 1 squad on overwatch in the bottom right of the picture along with the VERY important JAVELIN launcher. Another squad moves up to take up firing positions.|
|last US squad, bottom of the picture, hurries into cover to watch the left flank|

|US Platoon Leader.|
|Overwatch team. Sir! i see movement from the north!|
Next up the first enemy turn. This is my first game of Disposable Heroes in a long time and I am immensely enjoying it using my 15mm troopers. The switch to 15s turned out to be a very good decision. Stay tuned!
