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 and Crew (AAR729) Most of the artillery was old Second World War surplus (even if it got a new name). The 122mm M-30 was the old Soviet 1938 model, while the Ordnance Quick Firing 25 pdr guns were left over from the days of British occupation. Some divisions had the Soviet 152mm D-1, a renamed WWII-era 152mm 1943 model. Despite their age, these still out-ranged the Israeli artillery, as well as throwing heavier shells. Other battalions had the more modern French 155 mm Modèle 50, a leftover from the days before the United Arab Republic when France still had an interest in the Suez Canal.

The Observer Rifle Team

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.

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
