Both sides deployed one company and had the other in reserve- we both chose to put our armour in reserve. As is usual in our doubles games we added a third objective to ensure that both sides had to spread out to defend the objectives. My 2nd Armoured Div recon faced off vs an armoured panzer grenadier company from the 2nd Das Reich SS division. .
Dale's tigers then head into the nearby woods for a bit of safety.
Finally Kent manages to get through the front armour of a tiger!
He sends the 75mm Shermans round to support my infantry that have finally advanced to the woods- one Sherman falls victim to the bloody panzerwerfers- which were annoying all game!
At this time we had to call it, we were pretty beat up. I had just bailed one tiger (bazooka though the front armour) but it probably would have remounted, we were in serious trouble and the game was pretty much a forgone conclusion. We lost 3 platoons to their one for a marginal German victory.
A good game, we needed more time though (we play 3 1/2 hrs at Day of Days) to force a proper conclusion. I needed to be more aggressive with my recon but really didn't have an answers to the tigers.
I look forward to the next one in a couple of weeks time,
