Georgia attempted to invade South Ossetia and put a puppet government in place. They need to invade quickly, overcoming the South Ossetia military which consists of about 3500 troops, which is all represented at a basic level in this game. However, the Russians come to their aid.
This game, as ever took much longer to build, mainly because of the complex Russian units. I havnt included everything as things like Signals and Engineers dont serve much purpose and I had enough to do with all the other units. There are some interesting units including air defence and rocket air defence. There are no air defence rules at the moment so the units are useless in reality although i guess you could use them as infantry, however, I will aim to put in some air defence rules at a later stage and come back to this game.
Currently Georgia has no air power.
I dont really know much about this battle, but Wikipedia says that it was over quite quickly, which im not surprised about really. Again I think theres the social/political factors that are maybe more relevent than the military strategy with France I believe brokering a ceasefire/peace process etc. Further, the casulties were relativly low in relation to the manpower and units involved.
This is a first stage development but I think its fairly interesting already.
