Cherry Ripe MTO (id:#61161)
(ASL Action Pack # 7 ID:AP67)
Designer: Shaun Carter
Starter kit scenario?:    Deluxe scenario?:
As the Allied armies advanced across Sicily toward Messina, they had to overcome the defenses of a series of well defended towns. Centuripe, or “Cherry Ripe” as it was known by British troops, was the lynchpin of the so-called Etna Line. This town atop a mountain was defended by the 3rd Regiment of the elite Fallschirmjager-Division Hermann Goring. These had so far succeeded in holding off the efforts of two brigades of British troops. To maintain the pressure, another attack was ordered by Major-General Eveleigh. This time the task fell to battle-hardened veterans of the Tunisian campaign, the 38th Irish Brigade of the 78th “Battleaxe” Division.
Attacker: British (6th Battalion, Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers Regiment and 2nd Battalion, Royal Irish Fusiliers Regiment)

Climbing is essential for the British.. the roads are death traps once you run out of smoke.
