Combat Mission: Fall of the 3rd Reich - ROUND 6

@MeatEtr had to redo my turn, forgot about the TRP rule. :rolleyes:
Something is messed up, first time loading it the game crashed. Now it loads fine but getting a QB screen with pre-purchased Allied units. Weird, never seen this before and sure I picked Axis! I know your like me being patched to 2.11 with all the modules. Anyway, lets try it again, new file in our DB folder.

Edit: cleared out the old files and added V2 to the new file!

I did get one of those error messages that pop up once a year when I pressed go then pressed retry and it seemed to work, which it didn't as it turns out.

@Nathangun I've put a fresh setup file in the folder as attacker chooses certain parameters. :cool:

Ok, this is a meeting engagement right?
 
@MeatEtr and I are a few turns into our match. Causalities are already mounting on my side.
I have not heard anything from @Hohenfels in a while. Looks like he hasn't been on the forums. Hope everything is good.
Not sure if we'll get going on our battle any time soon.
Yeah, hope nothing wrong on @Hohenfels side.
Give him another week, then I might recruit a stand in player
(This might be the final concluding round of the tourney)

@MeatEtr and I are down to 18 min in our match. Not looking good for the German side here. We're fighting, but the literal swarm of Hellcats is just decimating my formation.
Still no contact with Hohenfels, but it is probably a mute point at this point in the tourney.
I thought a Tiger for the last battle would be fitting. In this pic you can see the commander has cleverly positioned the tank to use the tree to stabilize the barrel!

Normally, in CM that tree should provide at least 80% cover from incoming AP rounds.
 
My battle for Berlin vs @Paleolithic Monk is over with a Total Victory for the US 3rd Army. The Tiger pictured above was finally tamed by 4 Hellcats, one of which was destroyed. Fun battle and thanks for the game and fast turn rate Monk! (y)

Quick update:

@MeatEtr has punched through his battles at record speed and his US 3rd ARMY has also captured NUREMBURG -- and so reached its final objective!

This makes @MeatEtr the first WINNER of the Fall Of The 3rd Reich Tourney!!

...but, not so fast: @Stafford and his 8th ARMY are battling their way into their final objective of the Italian Front, the PO VALLEY. If he is victorious here, he'll be JOINT WINNER of the tourney with @MeatEtr .

They will have to share the spoils and adulation that come with winning this prestigious tourney!
