1-5-2018. Welcome to a new year of myassaultpage.com. This will be our 5th year of the website dedicated to all things GDW Assault. Our goals for 2018 are expansion of the 21st Century Assault; completion of the updating of the Assault 1990s; revamp of Korean Assault and the new Middle-East Assault. We had over 100,000 visits last year and hope to improve on that in 2018. Visit the Facebook page or shoot me an email with comments, criticisms, suggestions or just to say hello. I have already added a new section in Advanced Assault highlighting Soviet Operations FM 100-2-1. This is mainly to help non-military fans understand the Soviet (Warsaw Pact) concepts and doctrines and for us old grognards who's memories aren't what they used to be. I am trying to get the next scenario of the Lithuanian Incident published along with the updated Bulgarian People's Army and 2 new Alpine maps. Lots to come, in the mean time ENJOY!
2-17-18. The newest edition to Assault is the Scenario section in the 1990 Advanced Assault. This new section will introduce new graphics and new artillery rules that improve solitaire play (and I think more accurately simulates actual practice). The Campaign as a whole represents the epic battle between the US 3rd Infantry Division (M) and the Soviet 8th Guards Combined Arms Army. In the first scenario, Scouts Out, the Scout platoon of the 1/30th Mech Task Force meets the 5th Independent Reconnaissance Battalion of the 27th Guards Motorized Division. Only rules 1-16 are used and the even though Assault Map A is specified, any map can be used. Each scenario will introduce new units and more rules, in a tutorial sort of way.
The Bulgarians and the next installment of the Lithuanian scenario are still in progress and a new section with new counters based on the original Assault counters is coming soon thanks to Perry Pender. In the meantime, ENJOY!!!
