This small scenario was played mainly to check out the night rules for Fireteam Modern, a system regular readers will know I rate.
Very briefly this was a short sharp engagement between elements of Patrols Company 3PARA and Comando Company 601/Guard Comando Company 601. Prior to 3PARA's attack on Mount Longdon elements of Patrol Company conducted night time reconnaissance onto the mountain and used the bluffs overlooking Murrel Bridge as a patrol base. Early morning on 7th June had 2 4 man patrols resting after a recce when Argentine elements of 601 crossed the Murrell Bridge towards 3PARAs position. Argentine troops were at least double the British forces. Patrols engaged the Argentine forces to start the engagement.
Here's an aerial view, 3PARA Patrols are located on the bluffs overlooking the bridge to the right of the picture, Argentine forces entered from the left crossing the bridge.
Alex was activated and put a withering hail of fire onto the 601 unit causing more casualties before managing to extract off the table ending the scenario.
The Argentines had forced the British to withdraw and captured the bergans, however at a high price, 3 KIA 6 wounded.
The British withdrew with 1 wounded.
Both Alex and I thought the night rules worked well and interestingly this was a similar result to the actual engagement.
For those interested there's a good account of this engagement in "Green-Eyed Boys" by Jennings and Weale pls 111-115.
