Flames of War Regina Rifles After Action Report:
Version 4 (V4) & Team Yankee (TY): October War – Total War Event
October 14th, 2017
By Lance Mathew

Still looking for places to hold events we invaded Beer Brothers Gastropub. The Manager – Matt Braun – has been very easy to deal with and the location was almost like home; especially since most of our large games like these we have previously had our lunches there.
We set up in a side room and decided on a diagonal table set up from the Normandy Battles book. It gave a different feel to a very fast and fun era of Flames of War.

Currently, Battlefront, the makers of Flames of War have just come out with a Version 4 and have not yet had a chance to update the Arab-Israeli-Wars (AIW) era. So, we did our best to update the rules ourselves using the V4 and TY ruleset:
• V4 movement and movement orders were added in; with the Israelis getting the German Stormtrooper rules that they have in WWII. An exception to the V4 movement we used TY bogging checks.
• Artillery and gun teams had the reduction in crews and bombardment antitank; with smoke being treated the same as in both V4 and TY.
• Morale was done using the TY system.
• Aircraft: down to one dice had the Israelis fly in on a 3+ while the UAR plane was a 4+ to arrive.

We had six players: three IDF (Israeli Defense Force) against three Arab nations – two Jordanian and one UAR (United Arab Rebublic):
Alex – IDF Jace – UAR
Brody – IDF Lance-Jordanian
Kyle – IDF Sean – Jordanian

Just as in the October War in history so too had the Arab nations learned their lessons. With four smoke templates the first two turns allowed the Arab nations to move under the cover of smoke and advance safely in the open towards the middle objectives. Normally, they would have suffered enormous casualties and broken. Instead they arrived intact and held the objectives while the IDF seemed to be powerless to stop them. The game from the Arab perspective was never in any doubt and even with the staggering loses of twenty T34-85s was just a means to the end. From the IDF perspective they maybe should have deployed better or possibly kept some units in reserve for a counterattack. Also, a key IDF infantry unit was pinned in the early stages of the game and never unpinned. Alternatively, the IDF units only had a single smoke unit which was brewed up by a MiG in the first turn.

The venue and food were great and lots of people stopped by to check out the table/event. Meanwhile, if you are curious about the game or are interested in a demo please follow us on Facebook:
