Basically the Syrians must advance through this village in a gap in the Golan are in '73 to please pushy brigadiers. The Israelis caught off guard must defend with a basic platoon and little support.
The Syrian main objective is for the tanks to push through the village off the other end of the table. A little bonus will be the capturing of the hill to the right of the picture just to make the passing through the village a bit easier.
The result was a minor victory for Israel with 4 MIA and the village held.
The Syrians had a loss of some sorts, the hill was captured but the tanks were stopped.
Enjoy the pics, thanks for looking.

|View from A and HQ squads to the left of the village. B's position is the hill in the background and C is stationed in the village.|
|The Israeli platoon also has a jeep mounted recoilless 106mm rifle|
|The 1st and HQ squad of the Syrian platoon starts out mounted on teh T-55s|
|The leading T-55 is destroyed by RR fire stopping up the whole Syrian tank line.|
|The rear T-55(actually a T-54 but don't tell) is destroyed by 75mm squad level RR fire leaving one more stuck in the middle.|
|B is driven off the hill by 2nd and 3rd squads of the Syrian pltoon|
|I remembered my HQ squad mortar after about four turns, it hit several Syrians as they capture B's hill.|
|Finally the last Syrian T-55 is destroyed, the Israeli objective is complete. It is not an entire win though because they lost the hill to the right of the village.|
