The Fast Action Battles (FAB) series of games are designed to recreate important battles of the early to mid 20th Century, using wooden blocks to represent the major combat formations (units) and die-cut counters to represent the supporting elements (assets).
This volume of the series takes you to the Golan Heights on October 6, 1973, where during the holiday of Yom Kippur, the silence on the Heights was disrupted by the thunder of tanks, guns and aircraft as a Syrian assault was suddenly launched. The Syrian operation, code-named as Badr, was aimed to retake the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, which the Syrians lost in the 1967 Six-day war.
In Golan '73, you will command highly mechanized forces and maneuver them across the rocky terrain of the Golan Heights. You will find new asset types to aid your cause such as SAM’s, mortars, and anti-tank guns. Battle specific events include Operation Doogman 5, Strategic Reserve Releases, the GHQ Air Raid, Lt. Zvika Greengold, Electronic warfare, the Syrian FROG-7 missile strike and more. New terrain features in Golan '73 include escarpment, wadi, and the anti-tank ditch, known as the purple line. Helicopter-borne air-assaults and special rules for the first night are included to add more historical flavor from this important campaign.
