Operation Cromwell III Practice
Jim's Hungarian Light Infantry + SteveJ's Panzers
Rich's Canadian mech + Leigh's Canadian Armour
With Operation Cromwell III, our FOW doubles comp coming up in October it was high time we got in some practice. This was a Breakthrough Mission, modified for the 8x6 table by having the deployment zone 30cm from table edges & the Defender's reserve zones 60cm along the long edges.
The Canadian reserves were slow to arrive giving the Axis plenty of time to form a defense of dug in infantry & Panthers.
On the far left the Canadian flank attack came out. The M10's didn't hurt enough Panthers & were annihilated next turn. The Canadian Armour Coy was all but destroyed now and failed morale.
