Korean War: Counter-Attack, scenario #40: Counterattack at Haman
Three maps, the North Koreans setup dug-in on one map the Americans on the other with one map in the middle for travel time, as the Americans must clear the North Koreans from the road hexes on map 113 without losing more than 4 steps in 24 turns. The Americans also get VT Fuze artillery on the first 10 turns and two aircraft counters on the first 5 turns.
The American lead with two Jeep .50 cal. counters with a loaded Lieutenant, and one regular Jeep counter carrying a I&R counter and one leader counter. Those jeeps can travel across the map pretty fast and helped me to get into spotting range on the first turn for my off-board artillery and air-power. It did cost them one Jeep 50. Cal and one Leader to a NKPA 45mm AT Gun but setup up some awesome artillery and airstrikes with two groups of B26s two start off clearing the road on map 113 and destroying that 45mm AT Gun. The Jeep 50. Cal does count as an eliminated steps but not the regular jeep.
The M4/76 and M24 tanks followed right behind with loaded infantry, followed by the foot infantry which took long to reach the battlefield. It took some finesse and I started to worry about not losing more than 4 steps but after losing 3 steps I finally cleared all the east-west road on map 113 for an American victory. Without the VT Fuze Artillery and all the air-support in the begging of the game, I highly doubt I could have won but using the Jeeps of both types to setup the stage in the opening rounds helped The Americans achieve victory but a close one at that. A fun one to play!
