Turn 94: Our division has lost most of its fighting power, though morale remains good. We rank in the lower third of all panzer divisions. Medium tank TOE has dropped to 29%.
Let's have a look at our roster:
- our Sturmartillerie (Wespe, Hummel) is all gone
- halftracks? 19
- 5x 38(t), fine
- 28x IIIm, fine
- 13x IVg, good
- but where are all those IIIj, IIIh, IVf/f2 ?
Panzer-Armee orders an extensive rebuilding phase, and we become the Armee's reserve.
