Fate Of A Nation
The fate of a nation hangs in the balance. Israel cannot lose even a single battle. One defeat would mean the destruction of the tiny Jewish state. Not waiting to be attacked by the Arab forces massing on its borders, Israel strikes first.

Fate Of A Nation
Artillery HQ & Crew (AIS729) The Modèle 50 was further supplemented the lightweight, but hard-hitting British-made OQF 25 pdr field gun. As well as the original British Quad tractors, the Israeli artillery used the American Dodge ¾-ton and GMC 2½‑ton trucks as gun tractors.

Observer teams need a good view of the battlefield in order to do their job correctly. Be sure to deploy them in a position where they have an excellent view of the battlefield such as on a hilltop or on the top floor of a multi-level building.
The Staff Team

Staff Teams
To do their job, a staff team needs lots of maps, plotting boards, charts and tables, not to mention radios and telephones. All this equipment prevents them from being very mobile or effective in combat.


Although they are an Infantry team, Staff teams are part of their Artillery platoon and move slowly as if they were a Heavy Gun team. A Staff team can shoot as a Rifle team, but cannot function as a Staff team in the turn it does so.

A Staff team can function just as well when it is mounted in its own Transport team as it can when Dismounted (as long as it is not Bailed Out or Bogged Down), but cannot function at all when mounted in another Transport team.
The Gun Crews
