Assault on Fornebu ETO (id:#57091)
Critical Hit (Critical Hit # 6.2 ID:CH137)
Designer: Unknown
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
A key element of Operation Weserubung, the invasion of Norway and Denmark, was the capture of important airfields. The airfield at Fornebu outside Oslo was still under construction but nearly complete. The defense of the airfield was left to the ground crews of the Jaegervingen, the fighter wing of the Norwegian army air force, and an attached searchlight platoon from the Oslo Air Defense. The German plan was an initial assault by paratroopers landing directly on the airfield followed 20 minutes later by reinforcing elements of the 2nd Battalion of the 324th Infantry Division landing in transport aircraft. However, dense fog caused the transports with the paratroopers to turn back. The commander of the II/IR324 decided to press on. The Germans flew on through the fog to find the conditions at Fornebu clear enough to land.

2011-12-10(A) Fred Ingram vs Are Erlandsen Norwegian winThe Germans had some rough luck on the landing of the transport aircraft. Due to gusts on both landing turns, there was a damaged crash on turn 1 and two damaged crashes on turn 2. The casualty reductions and morale check losses put me behind by a turn right off the bat. The Norwegians did not bother guarding the area right around the airport, choosing to defend all of the buildings far from the airfield. The Germans then got timid and lost a turn or two by attempting to break the Norwegians. Finally, a couple did break and the Germans were off to rush the remaining buildings. It all came down to a HMG shot at the last squad headed to the AA10 building. The German was able to pin the leader (but not the squad). He also moved up some units adjacent. The hope was that the unit would cower (2 columns) on the shot since the leader could not direct fire - or at least have a mediocre shot & lose rate. Are was able to take an 8-2 shot and garnered a 2MC without rate. The unit failed the MC (just barely) but that gave Are the win Good game - closer than it should have been
