van Diemen Wargames Club visit
Jim's US Mech v. Joe's Schutzenkompanie (out of Afrika), Joe defending a Hold the Line.
Joe put one infantry platoon on the forward objective & the other in ambush (both had 2 Pak 38's). In reserve he had 105's & panzers (3 MkIII longs & 2 MkIV longs).
The advanacing scouts forced the early deployment of the 2nd Schutzen on the German right. The Panzers came on 1st turn and lurked behind the hill with the objective on it. The US popped most of the Paks, but the panzers shuffled round the the hill & helped the last one destroy the Honeys.
Another rattling good battle with lots of twists and turns.
