IABSM: Operation Compass #18: Siret el Chrieba

Post by Vis Bellica » Sun Apr 29, 2018 7:50 pm

Tony Cane has been working his way through the Operation Compass scenario pack for I Ain't Been Shot, Mum. His last post featured the tank battle at Mechili, this one covers the Australian attack on the Italian aerodrome at Siret el Chrieba.

Here, the Australians are faced by a huge expanse of open ground (“flat as a table and devoid of cover” as the official history puts it) dotted with the occasional hanger or building. Their target is to take the hangar and buildings on the other side of the open ground.

Thank you for doing this AAR.

I'm interested in knowing what the "charge card" allows a unit to do.

I can see an application for this card when using my Japanese.

Regards
Darren

Hiya Darren

Same as the Human Wave card in the v3 rulebook.

The card has gone through various incarnations over the years. It has variously been known as the Charge card, the Urraaaaaaagh! card and, now, the Human Wave card!

Cheers
