Hey all, just finished a solo game.
Mission is as follows:
British main line has encountered stiff german resistance, and have problems knocking out the german defenses. Hq assembles a small force to escort a churchill crocodile, break through a weakspot in the german flank and torch the dug in german resistance. Refuelling is not an option so the croc is under strict orders to save the flamer untill they get to the main lines.
British must exit the croc on the oppossing edge of the table in 12 turns or break the germans
Germans must break the british or destroy the croc.
German troops know their position is vital, so double their breakpoint.
germans breakpoint 6 (3x2)
1 CO (CV9)
1 HQ (CV8)
3 Infantry Unit (Heer)
1 Infantry Upgrade (Panzerschreck)
2 Support Unit (MG, MG-34/42)
2 Support Unit (ATG, 75mm, Pak-40)
1 Support Unit (IG, 75mm, le.IG-18)
1 Air Defence Unit (20mm, Flak Vierling)
1 Transport Unit (Horses, Draught)
3 Transport Unit (Trucks)
british breakpoint 8
1 CO (CV9)
1 HQ (CV8)
1 Recce Unit (Daimler)
6 Infantry Unit (Veterans)
2 Infantry Upgrade (PIAT)
3 Support Unit (MG, Bren, Carrier)
2 Tank Unit (Honey)
1 Infantry Tank Unit (Churchill, 75mm)
1 Ground Attack Unit (Typhoon, rockets) 1 asset on turn 2 on random building
3 Transport Unit (M3 Half-Track)
off course the first command roll MUST always fail
the co gets the troops moving, daimler gets hit by OP fire but escapes
the germans wait quietly
The ground attack from the typhoon hits a random building, and manages to target the building with just an mg in it, however AA fire quickly changes the plan
the typhoon crashes and burns
the croc gets moving, bodyguards take OP fire
left flank jumps on it
when they are up the germans try to withdraw their flank
and attacks the main force
the british molest the german flank and take some potshots
while the other flank gets lots of OP
but manage to advance
The germans try to redeploy the pak but a stuart nocks it out
the main force in trouble:
while the co and his troops wipe away the flank:
then the germans fail
its starting to look bleak by continous OP
flank still advances
germans retaliate in their turn
british co fails his second order at a critical time
the german commanders fail miserably
starts with a blunder!
and as soon as the first halftrack moves, a panzerschrek takes it out with its infantry inside, and the british meet their breakpoint.
Victory for the germans!!
