Saturday gaming kicked off with a couple of gratuitous shots;
A pair of F-14 Tomcats flying CAP skipped across the USMC deployment area at high speed.
The first day ended with me feeling relatively content that the marines had managed to keep the Soviets at arms length. The Soviets were really unlucky with command rolls, especially for their tank reserves which were released late in the day. The Sea Cobras seemed to be having a good effect and NATO air strikes were fun, with the MAW available, there were A-9 Intruders, Corsairs, Harriers, Phantoms and even some Kriegsmarine Tornados, which proved very effective early on. Already though, it appeared the Soviets were looking to concentrate on the gap between the USMC and British 1st infantry.
