James Brat Light Armour vs. Mike Italian Bersaligari
A bloody first encounter the Italian armour advancing on both flanks the Brat armour moved to intercept. The crusaders with their 2pounders struggled but held their own vs. the Carri and Semo 47’s. A long slog, the Italians lost an infantry platoon, their Semmo 47’s and light 20mm tank things. The British lost 2 crusader platoons and a universal carrier, and another crusader.
As night fell over the battlefield both commanders decided to retire to lick their wounds. Both Generals enjoyed themselves and are hoping for a rematch next week.
