Panzer Brigade 106

Nick vs Rob, Flames of War, 1750 points.

Nick (Panzer Brigade 106) with 11 Panthers and 3 Jagdpanzer IV/L70. Rob with 7th Armoured Division with M4A3 Shermans, some armoured rifles, and some mortars and recon troops.

Historically, Panzer Brigade 106 was effectively destroyed in one day. Its initial attack on an American force with 40 Panther tanks slipped between two US formations, and attacked the division HQ. The division HQ held firm while the other formations surrounded Panzer Brigade 106. Of the 40 Panther tanks that went in, 3 came out.

I managed to recreate history very well with my first run of Panzer Brigade 106 -- just 3 Panthers remained when my force morale broke! I blame the fact that I hadn't had enough time to apply the turret marking decals!!!
