AKA, Unit 101's 1st Fight of Operation Payback
Following the debacle of Operation Pay-Off, Cuba's President decided revenge was on the menu, and established Unit 101 to be the instrument of that revenge, wherever it may take them. Working closely with Cuban Intelligence, they'd begun the task of figuring out who was behind the bombings in Cuba, and who had conspired to ambush Cuba's delegation in Morocco. HUMINT sources pointed to a sheikh in Morocco with ties to certain, nefarious individuals, who might shed some light on the situation.
Major Villanueva: "Load up, boys, we're heading back to Morocco."
It's 0300 on 5 July 1990. Unit 101 has entered Morocco, and linked up with Cuban Intelligence on th ground. They shared their source's information, pinpointing The Sheikh. Major Villanueva decided on a hard hit, going straight at the target.
I'm playing these fights using Ivan Sorensen's rules "Five Men at Kursk," modified a little to make them a bit more modern and deadly.
Two five-man teams
1 Sniper team
1 Machine Gun team
*Most of the troops are 15mm Khurasan, but the shooters have two Battlefront figures, and the sniper and MG teams are Eureka.
The bad guys are: infantry from Flytrap Factory (Taliban) and HVT from Rebel Minis.
Time to fight!
Team 2 successfully completed it mission of capturing The Sheikh, ten Tangos down, no serious casualties for the Cubans (very lucky casualty rolls). Now the team has to get him to the extraction point. Which, of course, is the next fight, coming soon.
