Game 2 up against Ken Camel an extremely nice guy from Canada, well everyone from Canadas nice really, but Ken is too and good to play against.
|The terrain - US deployed to bottom of picture, you can see the objectives||at the top|
US Recce Platoon
2 – 3 big US Infantry Platoons including an Assault Platoon
A section of 90mm AT guns
A Platoon of Priests
and some 155mm Artillery
US Recce teams rush through village denying the ambushing StuGs a safe place to deploy. US Infantry swarms forward and artillery begins to range in on the dug in FJ. An FJ Sniper briefly holds up the advancing US infantry. Rocket fire pounds several US platoons but can’t inflict any casualties and the US troops are motivated enough to continue on. The only US casualties so far are a couple of Reconnaissance vehicles. The ambushing StuGs pop up but deploy to close to and in LOS of the enemy’s 90mm AT guns losing 2 of their number.
|Theres go my plan of attacking the Artillery for easy points, look at those AT guns|
|The US infantry horde begins its advance|
|Damn - that Recce stops me from putting the StuGs in the village|
|So I deploy them in the cornfield next to the objective instead - not a good idea in hindsight|
|US Infantry moves house by house through the vilalge|
|Pinned down by Rocket fire do I attack them or sit tight?|
|The end is nigh - US infantry take both objectives and repluse my assaults|
Final result a well deserved 6-1 to Ken
