Game 11 - Did You Remember To Close The Back Door, Comrade?

This is a LARGE game!

Eastern Forces Background (Andy, Ian)
Previous Order (to Guards) - Get to location afj725 ASAP, and secure ultra high priority cargo before expected interception. Possible NBC threat. All vehicles remain buttoned. Troops may exit to secure but wear full NBC.

Orders just received (10 minutes ago)
- Cargo under attack and has been damaged. Convoy static. Protection has been dispersed.
- You should be reinforced by the remaining stragglers within minutes - take command of these cowards and get them to form an outer defence immediately. Hopefully they haven't abandoned their RPGs as I suspect we may just need them!
- Await further orders...

(see Game 09 Supply & Demand for previous battle report)

Orders just received (5 minutes ago)
- [Secure Communications/localised] - Enemy armour spotted, approaching your West flank.
- Secure Package top priority

Orders just coming in...
Suspected UX hit and run team have contacted the Package. Condition unknown. Reports UX troops have now left the area. More sightings of Western armour seen to the West. Eastern troops in area ordered to regroup back to the convoy area and reinforce your position - expect stragglers to head back in small numbers. Await further orders.

Continue to and secure Package (all NBC troops and vehicles must be within 24" of Package's truck)
- Await inbound specialist team to determine damage to cargo (expect 2 black SUVs imminently)
- Officers in black SUVs will assume command. Expect relocation of Cargo to position "Natalia".
- Enemy Armorued Division spotted 15 miles west, so expect a recon, possibly light tank contact.
- 1 of our Guards Regiment and a Socialist Army Regiment are expected to attack the Western Forces within the hour. We need that package - get there and get it out!
