Here is a quick update to my Team Yaakav project. Team Yaakav is my Team Yankee game project based on the Lebanon 1982 war.

Here is a scenario and battle report Israeli trying to extricate themselves out of the village of Sultan Yakoub. This is one battle where the Israelis really got themselves into trouble so I thought it would be run to fun.

The scenario is at:

Wow Wow Wow... those are crazy nice pictures. How do you find using Team Yankee to run the AIW games? I would imagine it might have been easier to just counts-as the Israeli stuff as US or Brits, and once Volks-Armee comes out, you can use those BTRs from those lists.

Thanks. We seem to find they work fine. I am chomping at the bit to get official stats for M-60 and T-55s. I've found some documents that let me adjust stat values to something reasonable until then.

This find was a gold mine:

'I came across a really revealing passage in "Operation Peace for Galilee" by Richard Gabriel.

"The Merkava's special armor also proved itself. The Israelis have a data base of tank-armor protection against which they assess the performance of their M-60 and Centurion tanks and the enemy's T-62's. The Israeli analysis showed that, under fire, there is a 61 percent probability that a round striking a tank will penetrate. For the Merkava, the rate at which rounds striking it penetrated was 41 percent. In addition, there is a 30 percent probability that a penetrating round will also penetrate the crew compartment; in the Merkava, it was 13 percent. Its special armor and the placement of the engine in the front makes it almost invulnerable from the front. No known tank round can penetrate the front glacis to the crew's compartment. IDF data also show that in 31 percent of tank hits the tank will catch fire; by comparison, the Merkava caught fire only 15 percent of the times it was hit. The data show that of tanks lit afire, 85 percent to 90 percent are completely destroyed. In Lebanon, no Merkava was lost as a consequence of being set aflame."'

I'm hoping to get another game in during the holidays and hopefully I'll have some more cool pictures. I recently got some Khurasan T-62s I want to paint up and review too.

The Volks-Armee lists are PERFECT for the aspiring Middle-Eastern dictator to run forces.. the T72s are worse than the standard USSR ones, the T55s cheap and plentiful and with Pseudo-Hens and Chicks, and LOTS of cheap infantry with missiles (if you go the BTR route and not BMP, then they can be dug in!)
