Storming the Gap

STORMING THE GAP is the first volume in The WORLD AT WAR 85 SERIES of games of fast and furious platoon-level combat. Set in 1985, in an alternate history of World War III, when the Warsaw Pact armies storm across the border of East Germany in a powerful attempt to seize West Germany, and the whole of Free Europe.

The WORLD AT WAR 85 system features a unique combat system that involves die rolls by both attacking units and defending units, which keeps both players engaged throughout the game. Die rolls are compared and hits applied quickly, as all the information you need to fight your units is on the counters. No combat results table is necessary. Initiative, formation activation, random turn length, close air support and air cover are all integrated smoothly.

It's all here:

  • Basic, Advanced and, for each Volume, Optional Rules.

  • Units include:

    • US M1A1 Abrams Main Battle Tank

    • US M2 Bradley Infantry Fighting Vehicle

    • US M3 Bradley Cavalry Fighting Vehicle

    • US AH-64 Apache Helicopter Gunship

    • US A-10 Close Air Support Aircraft

    • West German Leopard-1 and Leopard-2 Main Battle Tanks

    • West German Marder Infantry Fighting Vehicle

    • West German Luchs Reconnaissance Vehicle

    • USSR T-72 Main Battle Tank

    • USSR BMP-1 and BMP-2 Infantry Fighting Vehicles

    • USSR BRDM-AT Anti-tank Guided Missile vehicle

    • USSR ZSU-23/4 “Shilka” Anti-aircraft Vehicle

    • USSR Mi-24E Hind Helicopter Gunship

    • USSR SU-25 Close Air Support Aircraft

    • …and many more.
