Designer: Unknown
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
In a furious assault in the villages of Veldwezelt and Briedgen, 114 German fallschirmjagers capture two bridges across the Albert Canal and destroyed the detonator wiring. Still under desultory fire, engineers removed the explosives. Lt. Altman, commanding the paratroops, reported success and settled back to await relief by the 4th Panzer Division. But it was not to be that simple. The Belgian command, acting with rare alacrity, ordered the 2nd Carabiniers to recapture the lost bridges. The paratroopers, outnumbered and exhausted after 30 hours without respite, gave ground slowly but steadily. In desperation, Altmann called in the Luftwaffe, who immediately dispatched a flight of Stukas.

2019-12-14(A) Jeff B vs Timothy Davis Belgian winThis scenario's a real dud. It's a pure dicefest, with the Belgians lining up on one side of the canal and the Germans on the other (assuming they make it across safely - which shouldn't be a problem). The Germans have the TEM advantage, while the Belgians have the range. But the big swing factor is the Stukas. In our game the Germans didn't get them in time before the Belgians had the breakthrough on the dice, eliminating 1.5 German squads, breaking the 9-2, and breaking another 2.5 squads.
2017-05-15(D) Martí Cabré vs Nicolas Sabido German winPlayed to see Stukas at work. They entered on Turn 5, enough to stop cold the Belgians from reaching the bridge. Before that, the Germans had mowed down some Belgian units so the attacker had reached the final line with very few units. Then the Stukas started their terror attacks and the remaining Belgians were all routed before ever reaching the bridge.
2014-01-19(A) mark watson vs Luke Sineath German winPlayed this to learn Air Support. Absolutely bloody conflict with the belgians largely eliminated and a handful of germans remaining. Belgians broke at the bridge after harrowing 16 -4 shots. Air support was extremely effective.
