Map: Celle 2 Conflict Overview
1972, following the Soviet invasion British forces successfully destroyed multiple bridges over the river Aller during Operation DELUGE, halting the Soviet advance. With the Soviet shock armies now stuck, bogged down in Germany, SHAPE has designated a 3-pronged counter-attack into Eastern-Europe to pin down, isolate, and destroy these armies. While a naval mission and landing captures the vital port of Gdansk in Western-Poland, land forces will move into Czechoslovakia and Hungary due to the relative light defences there.
While these assaults will hopefully cut off the Soviet armies from their homeland, a counter-assault directly through Germany should pin down these armies and destroy them.Recent Events
After the destruction of the bridges over the Aller, Soviet forces on the other side have now dug themselves into deep defensive networks. The town of Bergen serves as a major logistical hub between the first and second Soviet lines of defence. During Operation VARSITY a British airborne taskforce was sent in under the cover of night to capture and hold the town in preparation of our mechanised assault but unfortunately has failed. It is now the job of the mechanised forces to break through the Soviet defensive lines north of the River Aller as well as capture the town of Bergen, eliminating all Soviet troops in between.
The town of Bergen, though assaulted and held for a while by British troops, has likely been reinforced by Soviet mechanised forces now. The town still has its own defensive fortifications. Objectives
