The battle erupted about halfway through the brief land phase of the Gulf War. American armored forces had entered Iraq and pivoted to unhinge the enemy’s defenses inside Kuwait. Facing them was what appeared to be a well-trained and well prepared enemy - the elite Republican Guard.
The Republican Guard was dug in, defending the territory it trained in often. The Coalition forces were strung out, navigating by compass and GPS. Fog, sandstorms and “oil rain” confused the picture on the battlefield. All of this, on paper, should have given the Iraqis a fighting chance. Instead, by the end of the 26th of February, 1991, the best they had to offer had been annihilated.
This scenario recreates the historical battle. Variants allow you to explore what would have happened if the Iraqis had been better prepared, luckier, or better trained.

Various liberties have been taken with the historical actions to reduce large, complex battles to a tabletop game, and various vehicles have been used that probably were not present together on thie particular battlefield, but saw action in the same theatre of war. An example is the inclusion of the AMX-13 in the Operation Kadesh scenario.
These scenarios were included (in condensed form) in the Modern Armor rulebook.
- The Suez Crisis — Operation Kadesh
- The Six-Day War — Sharon at Umm Qatef
- Yom Kippur War — The Chinese Farm
- Yom Kippur War — The Heights of Courage
- Operation Peace in Galilee — Soultane Yacoub
From the viewpoint of 1991, it must have seemed like war and contested borders were exiled forever from European history. Yugoslavia soon proved that wrong, but it was the collision of NATO’s expansion into the former Soviet Union with the conflict in Ukraine that abruptly focused the strategic thinking of NATO on the possibility of defending member nations from direct invasion.
