    Gepanzerte Panzergrenadierkompanie (Lehr): So that doesn’t really share much, I forgot to take a picture of the whole thing but my panthers were going to push up on the closer objective while the armoured unit was going to come in and push up the left. My artillery was going to commit to anti-battery.

              Glider Rifle Company (with 6th A.D.): His right flank makes contact, opening up with everything initially and assaulting with his m10s, which I push back with 5 pins to his open top ( did we do this right?). He also assaults with infantry and is pushed back.

              TURN 8

              He drops smoke

              COMBAT CASUALTY SUMMARY

              • Most of another artillery battery
              • Infantry stands
              TURN 8 SUMMARY
              Gepanzerte Panzergrenadierkompanie (Lehr): My half tracks, panthers, and scouts prove too much for the group in the middle. The panzergrenadiers move up on the top objective as the noose closes.
              Glider Rifle Company (with 6th A.D.): He throws everything in to one last push, his mortars drop smoke on my infantry on the right, everything opens fire but fails to create casualties. With his final assault he fails to make it and I win the game the next turn.
              6-1 Victory Germany, this worked out perfectly for me. It was a textbook example of all the strengths of my list. Rob also had terrible luck with his confident trained units, but I feel no remorse for him because of the next game we had…

                          I really feel i misdeployed a few things but wow such a big halftrack force hitting is no joke, Rob was plagued with an infantry company that never gave up until the end but failed to dig in ever, I am growing to love this army, Rob was kind enough to suggest a few changes that I implemented on my next list

                                I pop my ambush as I see the stugs arent pushing up and wipe out that other grenadier platoon

                                This is around the time the German plan starts falling apart, as he starts feeding units to have something on my side of the board

                                I move my infantry closer to the tanks

                                6-1 victory to the Soviets, there was many things that could have been done better but we are both getting the hang of these armies, there was alot of fun though
