A Russian transport aircraft randomly crashes on the the banks of the Donau River. US intelligence believe it to be carrying a senior Russian Commander and despatch a French CSAR unit to try and retrieve the commander alive or capture important documents. Unfortunately the helo was shot down approaching the crash site and a BRDM-2 unit was able to secure the site. If the CSAR operation had been succesful it would have meant the Soviet commander in that sector would have been operating at -2CV. (Thanks to Neil McCusker for the loan of the aircraft).

The Supply Dumps
Steve Graham's US bridging units construct a bridge across the Donau. Great use of double glazing spacers to make the bridge sections. A cheap and very effective way of representing bridging operations.
Andy Canhams's ERC-90's (CinC models) were slung under French Puma helos and landed behind enemy lines to great effect.
More NATO Artillery
Yet more NATO Artillery
Steve Graham's wonderful collection of US helicopter support.
More of the helos.
Neil McCuskers Mi-6 (Skytrex). A horrible model from Skytrex (I have three waiting to be put together) but Neil has done a superb job with his adding Plasticard rotors as the model doesn't come with any.
Steve Graham's great little 'Enning' ferry model transporting a Canadian FAO across the Donau after their succesful river crossing.
In the last turn of the game this Mi-6 attempted a air assault which ended in disaster.
