Falklands AAR Night Platoon Attack

 A scenario to run through the night rules in Fireteam Modern. A British Platoon Attack, part of a larger engagement, on an Argentine held Tin Villa out in "The Camp".

The Brits were attacking with a Platoon, in defence the Argentinians Had a couple of fireteams, aGPMG team and a small HQ element. As already stated this was a night action.

Here's a view of the terrain and dispositions

Some other views

The Argentinian GPMG opened up causing some pins on the nearest British section, but not causing any casualties, 2 of the British sections responded causing lots of pins effectively suppressing the GPMG team. The Argentinian HQ element activated and moved across to try and stabilise the team and remove some pins.

The Brit section on the far side was hit suffering 1 KIA and 2 WIA, luckily the Platoon HQ arrived, the medic sorted the WIA and the Platoon Commander and Sgt managed to remove some pins.

The Brits then really got organised and effectively won the firefight on their left flank causing the Argentinian fireteam to break and rout off table. On the other flank the Brit Section close assaulted the Argentinian position causing casualties and breaking them, the remaining Argentinian forces then surrendered. A British victory, albeit with 2 KIA and 2 WIA/Treated. The Argentinians had 2 KIA, 3 WIA, a Fireteam routed off into the night and the remainder including the HQ surrendered.

Once again these rules performed really well and I would recommend them to all!
