|I quickly push the ARs on the left side forwards through some patches of wood, assaulting a PaK 40 that was by itself, and moving in for the nebelwerfers on turn two.
|The ARs and Chaffees pushed in from the other side, securing the farmhouse and putting fire into the Panzergrenadiers in the field.
|By turn three I was able to assault both the nebelwerfer with the left ARs and the Panzergrenadiers with the right ARs. Chaffees give supporting fire.
|My Shermans and recon were fighting it out with the german armored cars and flak guns while hiding from the Elefants.
|A smoke barrage gives my ARs the cover they need to push the remaining Panzergrenadiers off of the objective and secure it on turn four, giving the US forces a 6-1 victory.
The second match saw me at the helm of a 3rd ID Rifle list with two Rifle platoons, 105s, a weapons platoon, recon, self-propelled AA, Chaffees, and M18 Hellcats. Jon had a panzer list with 10 Panzer IV Hs, armored cars, quad 2cm flak, 15cm nebelwerfers, Nashorns, and an armored aufklärungs platoon.
|I made a major mistake and deployed my gun platoons on the wrong corner, guess I thought I had more platoons, I dunno. Jon quickly took advantage, making short work of the 105 platoon. My Rifle platoons moved towards the objectives.
|The artillery battery cannot withstand firepower of this magnitude, and is quickly destroyed.
|The Chaffees arrive from reserve and engage the Nashorns, missing all of their shots.
|The Nashorns kill one, and bail another, but the other two dash forward, killing one and bailing another.
|My SP AA arrive from behind the panzers, firing on the armored cars, killing two and bailing another, causing them to flee. Jon exacts revenge the next turn though.
Jon was very aggressive with his Panzer IVs, assaulting all over the place but their schurzen protected them from every bazooka shot I could muster. The Hellcats were able to rebuff the flank attack but by then half of my army was gone, the Chaffees to Nashorn and Panzer IV fire, the gun platoons lost to poor deployment and lack of support. Jon put the panzers right where they should've been, knocking out my weak platoons one by one. Well played.
