Operation Snakepit - Scenarios

These scenarios allow you to play out actual engagements from late 2007 in Afghanistan. In most cases I have scaled down the scenarios to match my modest collection and for playability purposes.

I have used Stephen Grey's book Operation Snakebite / Into the Viper's Nest as my main source – doubtless you shall find inaccuracies and mistakes below; they are all mine.
The main effort to retake Musa Qala was undertaken by Task Force 1 Fury (comprising 1st Battalion of the 508th Parachute Infantry Regiment). The scenarios below represent the preparatory and peripheral missions of the operation.

In time I will update this document with scenarios representing those core missions – but also updating the campaign outcomes affecting TF1 Fury's engagements.
