Game 4 was Fighting withdrawal vs Andre Jacobs and Craig Ramsey both sporting Identical (Legkiy Samokhodniy Artileriskiy Polk) Assault gun company's. We were defending in this on which suited us just fine not having to move using full rate of fire while soviets move and shoot with the hen and chicks rule sounded good to us (oh boy where we wrong). Turn one for them they had bailed 2 tanks of mine not to bad i thought as i had protected ammo which worked when it came to our turn one. Their tanks where still nicely bunched as they bottle necked between two forests with our NGFS O.P. having a clear line of sight to them needing 3+ to range in we actually did on the first attempt for the first time that weekend and hitting 6 tanks under the template things looked good then he rolled his 6 saves. Andre rolled a 5 and five 6's meaning only 1 tank was bailed out from a AT6 FP1+ Arty unit that sort of set the tone for what was to come. I open fired turn after turn on hist horde of T-34's killing maybe 2 a turn i was losing the same each turn but i had 13 tanks they had 24 tanks on the one flank the rate of attrition was to great. So warren launched an attack on Craig's Assault guns by assaulting them to drive them back he killed 1 and a half platoons of then in assault with panzerfausts as they had no defencive fire. Hopping this would take the pressure off me for a bit to slow the loss of tanks it was to little to late again Being another 5-2 loss.
|Craig and Andre had identical armies it was 2 of these.|
Game 5 was Breakthrough vs Nick Garden ( and Tim Ward (
