Flashpoint Campaigns: Red Storm TF Rhino Scenario...

So the balloon is up over western Europe!  With encouragement from Doug at Cry Havoc I downloaded Red Storm this evening and jumped in with both feet.

Currently I think I am losing!  I don't know as I've only read about two pages of rules and prefer to go toe-to-toe with the Red Army immediately.

Lead elements of British 1st Armored are currently dueling with Soviet tank columns on the North German Plain while the rest of the division reforms behind me.  I've been hearing jets overhead all battle and just got a pair of Tornadoes off map. As you can see I am going to need them!

I am very excited to start playing this game and I am looking forward to more blogging about it soon.

My first official contact. I am playing with fog of war rules and the time elapsing between orders and not being able to see what is in front of me, REALLY adds to the immersion level.

Soviet armor penetration.  I've inflicted some serious armor losses on my AI opponent but these Soviets have almost sliced TF Rhino in two!
More to follow!

Thanks Fatih! I am fumbling through it so far. I like what I've seen and there is a ton of free additional content in the forums from what I've read.

Hey. its your old buddies the Staffords! Fun to see units from Command Ops in a more modern setting.

Just played "KG Rommel." What a nail biter! Some Soviet armor actually made it across the Wesser. I destroyed them with air strikes and artillery, but it was close!

I am really having to reorient my brain to play this. I love the depth of the game.
