Conscripts Hugh and Byron played the Syrians, while Jim played the IDF with a little help from me. Each side had to block the other from escaping, while trying to set some of its own stuff off of the table - a tricky balancing act. The table was 6' x 4', with the sides approaching from opposing short table edges.

Burning tanks filled the table right from the first turn. Jim and I felt pretty good about things in the first couple of turns - we lit up the leading Syrian tank platoon with only one Centurion damaged in return. As the follow-up Syrians came on, we were thinking a couple of turns of efficient gunnery would sort them out.
