So i'm up to turn 6 Here's the story.
Stupid,Stupid,Stupid,......what the hell was i thinking about advancing up the left side of that road......idiot The advance on the right went pretty well not so much on the left. I start to advance on the left and on the replays i see shells flying across my position from the left woods but nothing seen yet. I keep moving up and the fire from the woods on the left keeps coming...i lose 1 light tank, so i keep some tanks advancing and others doing area fire to try to suppress what i find out are 2 ATG's . As i move up on the left small arms fire starts firing at me, so far the riders on my tanks have no casualties. The fire from the left keeps coming and i cannot get a clean LOS to the ATG's in the woods to my left, now as i advance i'm also taking fire from the front. So it's time to adjust the plan. I start pulling everything from the left side of the road up the hill and over to the right side of the road, i spend 2 turns reorging everything on the left and lose one more light tank on the switch from the left to the right all the while still taking fire from the center which are more ATG's. On the right i'm pivoting left and headed for the 1st flag in the town, taking fire from a few ATG's on what turns out to look like a ring of ATG's. I lose 1 light tank on the right. I did manage to take out 1 ATG in the ring and 2 more BT-7's no sign of anything else but infantry [foxholed in the woods], ATG's and BT-7's
Reinforcements have arrived...yippee more tanks. The advance on the right is on it's own for right now...i see some question marks in town....so something is there. I'm pretty much done reorging on the left and about to continue the advance. I may just keep pushing up the map on the left and use the reinforcements to help with the 1st flag if needed. I need to put some fire on the ring of ATG's because the fire to my right advance is picking up and smoke in the center ain't going to last forever. I have arty....105's which just got cooled off after the smoke mission and nebelwerfer, i was hoping to save the arty until i advance on the 2 flags in the town on the left but with that ring of ATG's and the smoke clearing in the center i may not have that luxury.
Time for turn 6 orders......
