Soviet Impulse One. Turn 2
Massive air fights, and the NATO player takes a gamble on airfield strikes and OOS interdictions. It does very little.
The Soviet player rolls 80% 5-6’s for their air strikes and ground missions in the early part of Turn 2. NATO loses rare aircraft to pre emptive ground strikes, aborting more than they hit.
Warsaw Pact forces launch an offensive into Austria and Jugoslavia, looking to stretch the NATO player and test his will to live.
6 Soviet Divisions go airborne. 3 are aborted but one lands in Trieste Italy and in Kiel.
In the South the rubble and smoke clear from the bombing of Istanbul and forces grimly hold on.
The only bright spark is the Persian Gulf. The area is now secured, and US force press into South Western Air territory and bomb Tehran proper. Soviets abandon the mountain range and hunker in Estafan.
