||Tankovy - Fearless Conscripts
|The German deployment|
|The T-60's hold the forward objective trying to hide, one company of T-34's|
is in ambush while the other is in reserve with the BA-10's.
|The 8-Rads recon forward|
|The Germans advance|
|Needing 2's to range in the Rockets make hard work of it!|
|But after all that effort all the Nebs do is bail one T-60|
|The Soviet air force turns up|
|The T-60's go hunting for 8-Rads but miss|
|The rockets from the I-153 take out a Panzer IV.|
|The Germans move up to the T-60s.|
|And then surround them with the other platoon.|
|This time the rockets so a far amount of damage.|
|The Panzers start to rack up the kills on the T-60s.|
|And more damage from the front.|
|The T-60s hold.|
|Which only leads to one destroyed and one bailed... The Panzer IV in short|
range saves 4 hits!
|The Seagull returns but this time fails the firepower and only bails one.|
|The Panzers move up to face the new treat of the ambushing T-34s|
|The Nebs smoke half the T-34s|
|The unsmoked T-34's start to take damage from the center Panzer platoon|
|The Left hand platoon keeps the pressure on the T-60s|
|Knocking out another 2|
|The T-34s back up from Panzers after looking 5 and wait for the reserves.|
|The Battalion commander joins the T-60's so they can move they decide to |
get frisky and charge the Panzer IV's.
|The Seagull fails to stop the Panzers.|
|The Center Panzer platoon moves in on the T-60's again now the T-34 have|
|The frisky T-60's that tried to get flank shots pay for missing.|
|The T-60's are reduced to one tank and route.|
|Both reserves turn up this turn, just in time!|
|The Battalion commander moves up to contest the objective.|
|The BA-64's try to sneak around and head for the Nebs.|
|The Center T-34's move up to protect the objective next turn.|
|The reserve T-34s surround the Panzers.|
|They take out two more Panzers from the platoon reducing them to one|
tank. They pass their moral check.
|Again the plane fails to spot the Panzer IV's.|
|The last Panzer bogs trying to hide from the T-34s.|
|The 8-Rads use the road to chase the BA-64s|
|The BA's disengage from the Rockets and hide from the 8-Rads.|
|The Panzers target the T-34' taking out 2.|
|The T-34's get aggressive and try to out flank the Panzers|
|While the other platoon charges over the hill|
|And the Battalion commander pops out but all the T-34's miss.|
|Having got away with the T-34's missing the Panzers turn to face with full|
rate of fire!
|The German Company Commander duals it out with the T-34 Battalion|
|The 8-Rads gets to the flank of the BA-64s but miss.|
|The Nebs smoke the Center T-34's.|
|The T-34's take a beating, but hold.|
|The Battalion commander gets bailed out|
|The BA-64 move out|
|The return fire from the T-34's bails a Panzer IV|
|The Final tank from the Left hand platoon is knock out, no 6-1 today!|
Sorry for my thumb in the picture....
|The 8-Rads keep chasing the BA-64's Knocking one out.|
|The remaining focus on the flanking T-34's knocking another one out and breaking the platoon.|
|The remaining T-34's get stuck in using the burning wreaks of their |
comrades as cover!
|The BA-64's risk bogging to hid from the 8-Rads|
|Again the 8-rads follow the BA-64's (I think they need a restraining order!)|
|The Nebs miss the T-34's thanks to the burning wreaks.|
|The Panzers trade shots with the T-34s.|
|But one bogs while storm troopering.|
|The T-34's chase the 1IC and 2 IC killing the 2IC|
|The plane ranges in on the Panzers! But fails to hit either tank...|
|The Panzers rush towards the T-34's but can' see many this turn and only|
|The 8-Rads manage to bail all the BA-64's who fail their moral test...|
|...The 8-Rads pass their Storm Trooper roll...|
|...and take the objective, in my turn my plane doesn't turn up so I'm unable|
to shift them and call the game.
|So 5-2 to Adam, but what a fun game.
The game was a bit closer than the score line suggests, there was a couple of turn were my T-34's got behind Adam's tanks and just missed them in the open... (bloody Hen and Chicks!). Adam also had a few bad rolls, the fact it took most of his tanks 4 turns to finally deal with the T-60's says a lot! |
We were both surprised how hard the Panzer IV's were, I think this highlights our inexperience with MW. Those guys are hard to shift with T-34's, at long range the bog 76mm is saved on a 2+. I can see a re match in the future, hopefully with a mission where we both get to move around.
