The Gulf War - Kuwait

Iraqi Invasion of Kuwait
On 02 August 1990 Iraq launched an invasion of Kuwait with two armored divisions, once division of mechanized infantry and a special forces division. The attack was led by the elite Republican Guard. The special forces division utilized helicopters and boats and assaulted Kuwait City directly. This map will loop five times.

Liberation of Kuwait
On February 24 1991 the Allied Forces under the defacto command of General H. Norman Schwarzkopf moved to liberate Kuwait. The plan involved a wide flanking maneuver around the the right side of the Iraqi line of battle. This part of the attack was carried out by US, British and French forces. JFC-N and JFC-E comprised the Arab segment of coalition forces. Note the feint attack by the US Marines on the coast. This move effectively distracted a large part of Iraqi forces.
