We're nearing the 2 month mark for this set of battles, which is pretty much 'on par', but I'd like to see them wrapping up by the end of the month if possible.
And please keep the battle reports coming, even if a brief text report is all you have time for. Even if nothing amazing has been happening, it lets us know that it's still moving forward.
Keeping the battle turn-over at a decent rate helps keep the campaign current and healthy.
Battle in Hex O10 results@Coopes (Axis) vs. @nektoman (Soviet)
3-8-3 Armoured and 3-8-1 Armoured attack 3-9-3 Tank Destroyer in a minor town.
The town of Zumbach was fiercely contested by both sides.
The 2 Axis tank companies prevailed in the end, but took 40% strength loss in the process. They are now both at 60% strength.
The Soviet tank destroyer company 3-9-3 was eliminated, but with 10% strength remaining, the survivors were able to join up with the 1st company from their battalion.
3-9-1 in hex N10 gains 10% strength and they are now at 90%.
@Wellsonian (Axis) and @Vatutin85 (Soviet)
What turn are you guys on? Haven't seen a DAR report from you guys for a month or two. What's happening?
All other battles are completed and we're waiting on you guys.
Battle in Hex M7 results @Wellsonian (Axis) vs. @Vatutin85 (Soviet)
10-3 Recon attacks 3-8-1 Armoured in woods.
The Axis 10-3 Recon company were given orders to stage a daring raid on the heavily damaged Soviet 3-8-1 Armoured company.
Despite probing the Soviet line in multiple places, 10-3 Recon were unable to infiltrate.
Although wooded, there was little undergrowth in the hex for concealment and 10-3 Recon took 40% damage to their combat strength and are now at 60%.
While lacking in heavy weapons, 10-3 inflicted some casualties onto the Soviet armoured unit, and 3-8-1 took a further 10% damage, bringing their combat strength down to 50%.
