The use of conventional tracked and wheeled units meant a swift advance across the arid terrain. E100s, E50s, upgraded KingTigers and Thor SPGs were used in large numbers alongside lighter walkers who could keep up with the Blitzkrieg through the Fertile Crescent.
We see here one of many thrusts which took place into the towns and villages dotting the banks of the River Tigris. This armoured thrust is led by Sigrid Von Thaler and seems to be unresisted but recon elements have warned of strong SSU forces in the area who are also here to seize the secrets of the Ziggurates of Babylon.
Twin 88mm equipped E 100 leads the advance into the town followed by a E 50 and an upgraded KingTiger with 173mm gun.
Infantry, walkers and armour skirt past the Mosque.
Sudden movement on the rooftops draws the attention of the twin 88mms and the heavy laser grenadiers see silhouettes in the Trading Post.
Recon troops starting to feel uncomfortable. Hope those guns are close?
Laser grenadiers wait for the heavy infantry to flush out the enemy if they are here?
Watching the advance from a safe distance and vantage point. Where are the towns people?
I have a bad feeling about this!
