The humble 2cm scout car.. on parade for the Kriegsmarine?!?
Hey gang, another battle report at Chris', this time I will let the pics and video at the end do most of the talking. There was some chatter about a tournament list that used 2x DAK Aufklarungs command card (scout car formation), 2 Tigers, 2 88s. While I doubt I would ever go 'that far' I liked the concept of using the Aufklarungs card, and adding more cheap hulls to the mix: M14/41 allied formation! Chris has been tweaking his DAK list over the past few videos, and this time wanted to try Lorraine Schleppers. We rolled up CounterAttack.

Grand overview of the deployment.
The 88s have such good LOS from that hill!
Couldn't even knock out that pbz-41 anti tank gun over by the house either!!
Slowly whittling down the infantry in the buildings and the guns in the church
And finally, kill off the guns, the HQ formation breaks, and I claim the church. Now the roman catholic Italian tank crews can go to Mass!
I know, not the most exciting game, shooting and trying to dig out infantry, but it was his only tactic given the way the mission mean this reserves were on the opposite corner. Still learned that, in Version 4, not being able to assault buildings with vehicles (even if just to push them out of cover for one turn) is pretty huge, and means I need an infantry unit dedicated to that cause. So .. now I turn to the 22 stands of unpainted Italian infantry I have laying about, begging to be finished.
Hope you guys enjoyed it, and, as always, here is the video with commentary about tactics, and so on.
