14 May, 1985

Soviet armor rolls across the West German border. The war that we had hoped to avoid erupted with a violent, bloody vengence. Up and down the German border outmanned, and in some cases, outgunned, NATO soldiers fought a Soviet enemy determined to free their country from the threat of Western invasion. But nowhere did they fight harder than the men of Task Force 1-67, Americans, 3,000 miles from home - The Defenders of the Eisenbach Gap.

Heroes of the Gap, is a complete Lock ‘n Load module, which brings the Lock ‘n Load system to Eisenbach, Germany on the first day of World War III. This is not a World at War series game, but it does take place in the universe created by World at War. This is pure, impulse-driven, tanks vs. tank, squad vs. squad, leader vs. leader, RPD vs. M60, Lock ‘n Load system gaming.

You’ll command 1985-era weaponry on a Marc von Martial-drawn, mounted 22” x 34” historical map of Eisenbach and its immediate surroundings, including Bergengipfel and Klappebruck. Defend West Germany with Abrams tanks, ITOW anti-tank vehicles, Cobra attack helicopters, squads of American soldiers, leaders, snipers, heroes, M60 machine guns, Dragon guided missiles, A-10 attack aircraft and more.

If you chose to attack the capitalists with T-80, T-72, T-64, and T-55 tanks, Hind helicopters, Soviet infantry, paratroopers, BMPs, and all their accoutrements of war - RPGs, RPKs, RPDs - you are free to do so.

Included are rules for anti—tank guided missiles (ATGM), which are easily depleted, advanced armor, advanced sites (thermal and night), fixed wing air support and more.

Fight ten scenarios that recount the first day of the war, from the first probes by Soviet infantry to the ultimate, desperate clash for the Eisenbach bridge. This is the game for those of you who have wanted to get down on the streets, in the buildings and on the deck of the tanks.
