Cold Wars '17

Postby timw42 » Mon Mar 13, 2017 8:06 am

It's that time again.

This time, we go to Dien Bien Phu, were elements of the 1st Legion Paras and 5th BPVN, with tank support, will try to break through the Vietminh trenches to relieve the Algerian riflemen at Gabrielle.

No lurking in the jungle this time--this will be an open field stomping match.

A few pics from the weekend. Alas, the French did not do as well as historically. The Vietminh player set up his forces and support weapons very well and stymied the French attempts to break through, though the first trench line was cleared.

One tank was lost to AT fire.

The assault.

Tank go boom.
