**Today**at 06:39:10 PMIdentical follow-on attack from the 25th TD w/Artillery support for another 6MP - 12MP expended of 20 MP total.

The Soviets bring in the remaining Hind sqd using same path and NOE over the target hex.

This time the US Flak roll is a 20 - miss - and the Hind remains at full strength.

The odds are 17 + 5 + 9 = 31 compared to 3 defense gives a 10:1 again.

The combat modifier calculations are almost the same - both Cadre values are 5 so they still cancel out again giving a 3 Modifier.

But this time the 2 casualties inflicted on the US Bde are a modifier against the defender so the final combat modifier is 1.

Another difference this time is the WP rolls a 18 - A1.

This means the Soviets lose 1 step - but since attacking a defender in a city hex this is increased to 2 steps.

Since the supporting Artillery unit is stacked with and supporting the 25th TD and it has taken losses - the Artillery unit must take 1 step loss.

And finally even though the 25th TD has 8MP remaining - the A1 result ends its movement for the phase.

Looks like the US gave some back - and overall both sides have taken heavy losses.

So the US Bde is 1 step away from destruction, but the same is true for the 25th TD in its attack into West Berlin.

Not to mention a number of burning T-72s and Hind helos strewn across the city streets.

Next we'll see if the 32nd Guards Tk Div can take advantage of the losses inflicted on the US Bde…
