But first, my parents visited and my Dad and I tried out Combat Patrol in room to room fighting. It worked very well!
Now back to my modern game. I did not run Platoon Forward with this. The Central African Republic 1996: French forces are sent into the country to protect europeans and their interests. Unpaid soldiers of the president start to loot. They drive out to a beer factory, take it over and proceed to loot the beer. Now I dont have french foreign legion troops ( but I will now have to get some) and I only had 16 africans so my taliban had to pitch in. I must thank Mr Richards for providing this scenario taken from the Society of Twentieth Century Gamers; Issue 69 from 2010.
French forces 12 Legionanaires, 11 assault rifles and 1 SAW. 2 Gr III leaders, 1 Gr II leader and 1 Gr I leader ( who was the LT on his first mission.)
Bad guys around 40 men with a mixture of rifles and automatics. 1 Gr II leader and 2 Gr I leaders.
Meanwhile the manager's family is located and sent to the rear with the LT.
The FFL had one incapacitated who lived but was evacuated to France.
The game played great and it really represented an elite force against a small one. The Gr III leaders were able to +1 to their die and any rabble without a leader was automatically a 1. ( Remember my normal deck has 3 "6s" and only 1 "1" card. In addition I added several blue cards to only be used by the legion. Guess I will be buying some FFL troops from Peter Pig. They can also double in Viet Nam.
