I don't want to speak too soon, but this is a cakewalk. I just finished off the last of the SU76s. The BA64s are dead. One T70 is dead. Infantry is the only real threat left. The P4s have turned their attention to the company coming down the RR tracks. It previously killed one and now has one suppressed. On the other side of the map, I accidently moved two squads out into the open when I was trying to move a platoon HQ up to a jump off point. I w/d them in reaction with no issues. I did have to rush a couple of HT out of LOS of a T70. They started the turn in LOS after the T70 came out of a clump of woods about 200m away. I had to sit through 40 seconds of the T70 missing shot after shot until it was distract by a 50mm mortar moving a few hundred meters away. At least the 50s are good for something.
It seems the Panzer IVs did much better for you in PCK, which swung the balance. What ranges were you generally firing at in PCK and CMBB? In a small scenario, the difference can come down to a few good shots and the smaller it is, the larger a role luck plays as well. I'd be interested to look at the scenario file too, when you get a chance.
[qutoe]Comments: I am not sure what I am doing differently between PCK and CMBB. I have totally different results. In PCK, no more than 3 hits were scored by the SU76s on the P4s. The only AFV they killed was the 251 sprinting across the map. In CMBB, the initial volleys from the SU76s and the P4s were off, but they homed in quickly. It also seems like I am able to suppress the infantry in CMBB more readily, but they recover quickly after the fire is lifted. In PCK, it seems that once the infantry is suppressed, the odds are they won't recover and eventually are dead.
Infantry in PCK has roughly a 50% chance to recover from suppression each phase and I see them recover regularly. If they're in a very bad spot as far as the fire their taking, then of course staying there may not be a healthy thing. They can also be kept suppressed if the fire is pinning them, as you can recover from pinned to suppressed in one phase but not all they way from pinned to unsuppressed.
